Welcome! AmeriHealth Caritas Louisiana is excited to host Integrated Health Care TeleECHO clinics — an emerging case-based learning model.

About this Event

Who participates in a TeleECHO clinic?

All levels of AmeriHealth Caritas Louisiana practitioners are welcome to participate in Project ECHO at no cost; this includes physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, socialworker s, community health workers, counselors, pharmacists, and emergency medical technicians.

Our health plan staff have been trained to facilitate the ECHO model and will guide the experience. AmeriHealth Caritas Louisiana’s Chief Medical Officer, Behavioral Health Medical Director, and Market Pharmacist will also participate, as pertinent to the cases being reviewed.

TeleECHO clinics are not intended to replace a practitioner’s clinical judgment; the practitioner is responsible for determining applicable treatment for the patients under his or her care.

Topic: ACLA Integrated Health TeleECHO Clinic.

What is considered protected health information (PHI)? Please read this list and attest by checking the attestation box in the questions.

As a reminder, disclosed information is considered PHI if:

The information includes any of the data elements listed below (data elements may pertain to a patient and/or a patient’s family members). OR

The provider disclosing the information knows that the disclosed information could be used alone or in combination with other information to identify the patient.

(A) Names.(B) All geographic subdivisions smaller than a state, including street address, city, county, precinct, ZIP code, and their equivalent geocodes, except for the initial three digits of a ZIP code if, according to the current publicly available data from the Bureau of the Census:(1) The geographic unit formed by combining all ZIP codes with the same three initial digits contains more than 20,000 people.(2) The initial three digits of a ZIP code for all such geographic units containing 20,000 or fewer people is changed to 000.(C) All elements of dates (except year) for dates directly related to an individual, including birth date, admission date, discharge date, and date of death; and all ages over 89 and all elements of dates (including year) indicative of such age, except that such ages and elements may be aggregated into a single category of age 90 or older.(D) Phone numbers.(E) Fax numbers.(F) Email addresses.(G) Social Security numbers.(H) Medical record numbers.(I) Health plan beneficiary numbers.(J) Account numbers.(K) Certificate/license numbers.(L) Vehicle identifiers and serial numbers, including license plate numbers.(M) Device identifiers and serial numbers.(N) Web universal resource locators (URLs)(O) Internet protocol (IP) address numbers.(P) Biometric identifiers, including finger and voice prints.(Q) Full face photographic images and any comparable images.(R) Any other unique identifying number, characteristic, or code, except as permitted by paragraph (c) of this section.

As a reminder, the HIPAA Privacy Rule allows covered entities to access, use, or disclose patient protected health information ("PHI") for the purposes of payment, treatment, and health care operations. However, it has become common practice for conditions such as mental health, HIV/AIDS, substance use, sexually transmitted diseases, and genetic conditions, to necessitate the affirmative permission of a patient — by means of a HIPAA Authorization Form — before diagnostic records and/or other information can be shared with providers and other partners on a patient’s care team. Please keep this in mind as you prepare and present your patient case(s) with close attention to excluding any protected health information.

In order to support the growth of the ECHO movement, Project ECHO® collects participation data for each teleECHO™ program. This data allows Project ECHO to measure, analyze, and report on the movement’s reach. It is used in reports, on maps and visualizations, for research, for communications and surveys, for data quality assurance activities, and for decision-making related to new initiatives.
