Sheila CurransKHA salutes Harrison Memorial Hospital and its CEO Sheila Currans for being the first hospital in the state as well as the first in Blue Grass District to join the Kentucky Statewide Opioid Stewardship (KY SOS). Currans joined the program at the Blue Grass District Meeting in March.

KY SOS will focus on reducing opioid overprescribing and improving safe opioid use by providing hospitals and health systems with education and resources on how to attain the highest level of performance on opioid stewardship.

Baptist Health will be rolling out the red carpet on Monday, May 6, for a movie premiere that will save the lives of thousands of Kentucky infants.

The movie, created by Prevent Child Abuse of Kentucky, educates caregivers about safe sleep practices and pediatric abusive head trauma. The Kentucky Hospital Association will distribute it to every birthing center in the state, meaning it will be viewed by more than 50,000 new parents each year in more than 100 hospitals.

WellCare Health Plans sponsored the video.

“With 54,000 live births in Kentucky each year, we know there’s a significant audience of new parents that can benefit from learning how to keep their babies as safe as possible,” stated Jill Seyfred, Executive Director, Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky.

The Kentucky Hospital Association, along with other key partners, will play an important role in ensuring this educational video reaches this sizable audience. “Becoming a new parent can be both overwhelming...

Yesterday, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed increasing the Medicare Wage Index for low-wage index hospitals, with the goal of supporting quality health care in rural areas. KHA is analyzing the 600+ page rule and will be filing comments, but is encouraged by the proposed changes intended to reduce the disparities between low and high wage index areas which has been a key issue for Kentucky’s hospitals advocated by KHA. (See KHA's comments on the disparity on page 14 of the Association's Federal Priorities).

According to CMS Administrator Seema Verma, "One in five Americans are living in rural areas and the hospitals that serve them are the backbone of our nation's health care system. Rural Americans face many obstacles as the result of our fragmented health care system, including living in communities with disproportionally higher poverty rates, more chronic conditions and more uninsured or underinsured individuals."
