PhysicianOne Urgent Care Physicians Become Certified Medical Examiners for DOT Physicals

Brookfield, CT (PRWEB) July 22, 2014

There’s great news for Connecticut commercial drivers scrambling to meet new Department of Transportation regulations: all PhysicianOne Urgent Care physicians are now certified medical examiners for the US Department of Transportation (DOT).

To ensure the safety of everyone on the road, the DOT enforces strict standards to make sure all professional drivers are physically qualified to operate limousines, taxis, trucks, and other commercial vehicles. Recently, the federal department added new requirements demanding that all examining physicians be registered and certified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).

Now that every PhysicianOne clinic staffs physicians who are certified by the FMCSA to perform these mandatory physicals, commercial drivers can enjoy the convenience of lower costs and easier scheduling at all PhysicianOne Connecticut locations.

“PhysicianOne is an ideal place for busy commercial drivers and their employers to get their DOT physicals,” said Dr. Jeannie Kenkare, Chief Medical Officer at PhysicianOne Urgent Care. “Not only do we use advanced technology and equipment to quickly and painlessly ensure that all drivers are compliant with DOT regulations, our certified physicians are available extended hours, 365 days a year, including holidays. Drivers are free to walk in without an appointment at any one of our locations to get a physical or any other occupational health service they may need.

For most drivers, DOT physicals involve tests that assess visual acuity and color discernment, blood pressure evaluation, urine testing, hearing testing, and other testing required to determine the drivers physical and medical qualifications for driving a commercial motor vehicle.

Health Partners America Publishes New Whitepaper 10 ACA FAQs for Individuals and Families

Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) July 18, 2014

Health Partners America (http://www.healthpartnersamerica.com), a company that provides training, tools, and technology solutions for insurance agents and employers who are navigating the health reform legislation, announces the release of its new white paper 10 ACA FAQs for Individuals and Families. This 11-page document was written to help health insurance agents and brokers answer some of the most common and often most difficult questions their clients are asking.

As the paper explains, although weve already completed the first annual open enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act, a majority of Americans are still confused about the health reform legislation, and many arent sure where to turn for help. This document will help agents give them the information they need.

This white paper covers a lot of ground, says Mel Blackwell, CEO of Health Partners America. It addresses topics like the individual mandate, penalties, and premium tax credits, as you might expect, but it also explains how health plans are changing under the law, how people with current coverage might be able to hang on to it, and how health insurance companies will treat pre-existing conditions.

Insurance agents have spent a lot of time educating their clients about the legislation in the past four years both the pros and the cons but there are still a lot of people who have yet to learn about their responsibility to purchase health coverage and the financial assistance they may qualify for. This tool helps simplify the material for them so that brokers can get their clients up to speed and then begin working on a solution.

Health Partners America is offering the full report at no cost through the companys website.

Access To Care: WWAV & LSU Health Sciences

The human papilloma virus (HPV) is the leading cause of cervical cancer; in the United States alone, the incidence of an HPV infection in women between the ages of 18-22 is 50%. These statistics by themselves are enough to cause alarm. Now consider the factors involved in a women going to an OB/GYN clinic to be screened for the virus; consider the need to take off work, how she will commute to tImagehe clinic, the amount of waiting involved once she’s finally there, and what about child care? For these reasons, Women With A Vision has paired with LSU Health Sciences in a study focusing on the usability of a home-test kit for HPV.

Outreach worker Zina Mitchell has lead the group in recruiting community participation as well as teaching current WWAV interns the most effective way of reaching individuals. The neighborhoods specified by the study are Treme, Holly Grove, and Central City. Beginning outreach during the first week in October, we have distributed over 120 flyers to individuals in grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, and to those walking down sidewalks. General reactions have been inquisitive and friendly, asking more about what we’re doing and who we are. Conversations have allowed us to explain further the reason women need to be screened for HPV, regardless if they choose to do so through this study opportunity.

Recruiting participants has proved to be an interesting endeavor; learning how best to explain the risks involved in contracting HPV as well as why learning one’s own status could lead to preventing cervical cancer. The procedure of the study randomly assigns individuals to either a clinic visit or to use a home-testing kit. Among other forms required by the Institutional Review Board (IRB), we then present the individual with a questionnaire to verify eligibility (only those between the ages of 21-64 qualify) and a pre-test that will later be compared to the post-test. For those who are assigned to the clinic, WWAV provides either bus or street car tokens or a gas card—depending on the need of the client—and then we schedule an appointment.

For those assigned to the home-testing kit, the process is a bit more involved. We have pre-made kits for the women, including instructions on how to do the test. She then inserts the provided tampon for 2 hours, removes it and places it in the given tube and plastic bag, then places the pre-paid box in the mail, destination LSU Health Sciences.

Although we are in the beginning stages of this project, we anticipate a positive response from the communities participating. The mentality behind this study, the convenience and accessibility of testing for HPV at home, explains our involvement and support of the project. The clients that we work and interact with could only benefit from an easy method allowing them to determine their own HPV status when considering the many obstacles involved in preventing them from accessing services at an OB/GYN clinic; money, child care, and transportation being just a few of the deterrents.

Limited access to care especially in the realm of health services is a known reality for the individuals and families we serve. The idea of being able to assess one’s own health status at home opens a world of possibilities and allows for the individual to reclaim his or her own power; the power of autonomy. Removing stigma as it relates to health care opens the door to myriad opportunities for individuals to protect their own bodies from disease and to manage a life-style that will lead them to a long and happy life. At-home testing for HPV will do just that.

The Personal is Political

It’s been a little over a year since I became involved in Women With A Vision. And as anyone who has ever worked with us knows, that means I’ve been tasked with anything and everything. I’ve created outreach materials, helped clients complete Medicaid applications, provided clean syringes to injection drug users. But of all activities I’ve taken part in during my time at Women With A Vision, our story circles stand out.

Twice a month WWAV hosts story circles—a community-based storytelling session. Our staff, interns and participants gather around in a circle to tell stories, share our lived experiences, and find a collective voice. WWAV’s participants are overwhelmingly low-income women and transgender women of color, a number of whom are involved in the street-based economies. Story circles thus achieve the important task of centering the voices of people who are too often made invisible in our society. They not only engender a sense of community and awareness, but they also promote healing and collective action.

Timid and a little quirky, afraid that I wouldn’t gain the acceptance of our participants, I did very little talking in the first few story circles. I had come to WWAV as a student intern from University of New Orleans. And while my coursework in the sociology of gender had impassioned me, serving as the impetus for my politicization as a young Latina woman living in the South, there was also a gap between what I had been taught in the classroom and what I was now learning in our story circles. My courses at school had given me a theoretical understanding of the ways in which systems of race, gender, class, and sexuality intersect to create social inequality. But story circles lent a face and a voice to the people who live under the pressure of those inequalities. I admire our participants’ resilience, and I admire the generosity with which they shared their lives with me.

Eventually, my timidity washed away, allowing me reciprocate the same generosity our participants had shown me in sharing their stories. As I developed relationships with our participants, they came to call me ‘White Chocolate.’ Not only is this a delicious nickname, but I felt it validated my place in WWAV. That nickname is a reminder of my personal trajectory at WWAV—from a reserved to a more confident person with a deep social justice commitment.

Perhaps that’s why I so vividly remember my incredulous reaction when I got Deon’s message that “our office was torched.” Torched? As a non-native English speaker, I had initially thought: perhaps there is another definition of the word “torched” that eludes me. Because “torched” certainly couldn’t mean that our office had been set on fire. My denial was quickly punctured as our photos and videos began to circulate on the web.

In the month since fire, all of us have experienced many ups and downs. WWAV has not only been a safe haven, but it has also been a place of growth for all us. The violence of this attack is an ever-present reminder that the personal is indeed political. As we continue our rebuilding process, this awareness is what keeps all of us going. Someone tried to stamp us out by destroying the materials we use to do our work, but our work—our vision—goes so much deeper than that. It is inside all of us who are part of the WWAV family. That’s something that can’t be burned down.
