“Our health care system is complex, and pressure in one part of the system impacts all the others,” Health Minister Michelle Thompson said in a news release.

“Change will not happen overnight. But by sharing this information now, we are holding ourselves accountable to ensure that change happens and that the system improves in the areas that matter most to Nova Scotians.

Ambulance offload times at emergency departments will be among the areas that will be tracked on the Government of Nova Scotia’s new health information website. – Salt Thread

Progress to follow

The website also aims to track progress in specific areas:

  • hiring more than 350 registered nurses and licensed practical nurses at Nova Scotia Health and IWK Health, between January and September 2022

  • expand VirtualCareNS to give people access to online primary care
  • launch of a recruitment campaign for nursing staff
  • cut red tape for doctors
  • $57 million to attract, hire and train more continuing care assistants, including offering free tuition to students and opening beds for seniors faster
  • increase the salaries of nursing aides in the public continuing care sector by up to 23%
  • establishment of a paramedical working group to develop shared solutions
  • implement the direct triage policy across the province, which will allow paramedics to spend less time waiting in the hospital with low-risk patients and more time available to respond to emergencies
  • the creation of the Health Equity Partnership Table comprising the province, the Nova Scotia Department of Health and IWK Health; its first meeting will take place in July and will focus on the development of a health equity framework, metrics and indicators
  • new recovery support center opens in Dartmouth for people seeking help with addictions or gambling

33 hospitals send website users’ medical information to Meta:Report https://hospiceofhowardcounty.com/33-hospitals-send-website-users-medical-information-to-metareport/ Fri, 17 Jun 2022 06:30:00 +0000 https://hospiceofhowardcounty.com/33-hospitals-send-website-users-medical-information-to-metareport/ A Meta tracker on 33 hospital websites collected confidential visitor data, The Markup reported.

  • A Meta tracker on 33 hospital websites collected confidential visitor data, The Markup reported.
  • The code tagged the data to visitors’ IP addresses, which could identify who they were.
  • Sharing this information with Meta could be a violation of federal law, experts told The Markup.

In what experts say is a violation of federal law, some hospitals shared users’ personal medical information with Meta, according to a new report from The Markup.

Under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), hospitals are required to protect sensitive medical data and not share it with outside organizations. But 33 of the top 100 hospitals in the United States, including Johns Hopkins Hospital and New York-Presbyterian, had a tracker called Meta Pixel on their site, according to The Markup’s June 16 report.

Meta Pixel is a code that records visitor activity and sends the data to Meta. Meta analyzes data and lets website owners know how powerful their ads are on Facebook and Instagram. But Meta Pixel also captured data, including reasons for medical appointments and the names of patients’ doctors when people tried to book appointments on those hospitals’ sites, The Markup found. The outlet found “termination of pregnancy” and “Alzheimer’s” listed as reasons for consultation among the Meta Pixel data.

The outlet found that seven health systems shared details about patients’ allergies, medications, upcoming appointments and sexual orientation with Meta through Meta Pixel.

Regulatory and data privacy experts told The Markup that the hospitals may have violated HIPAA. Indeed, Meta’s code also captured the visitor’s IP address, allowing external parties to link specific individuals to the data.

Seven hospitals and five health systems removed Meta Pixel from their sites after The Markup approached them. The Markup said it was unsure whether Meta would benefit from the data it received. A spokesperson for Meta did not respond to questions from the outlet, but pointed to the company’s policy, which states that its system can identify and remove confidential health data before it is stored in a database. Although Meta is not subject to HIPAA, the company said in 2018 that it would stop using third-party data to target users.

Some experts have taken to Twitter to voice their concerns about The Markup’s findings.

Last month, Politico reported that the Supreme Court could overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that guaranteed the right to abortion. David Valvesprofessor of health policy and administration at Penn State University, tweeted Thursday: “The potential uses of this information are terrifying – especially in a post-Roe world!”

A venture capitalist has urged tech companies to play their part in preventing privacy breaches. “As the data privacy debate continues, it appears Meta has crossed another line, this time into healthcare,” said Alyssa Jaffee, partner at healthcare venture fund 7wireVentures, tweeted Thursday.

Meta, Johns Hopkins Hospital and New York-Presbyterian did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.

Public Health Division launches new WIC educational website | State https://hospiceofhowardcounty.com/public-health-division-launches-new-wic-educational-website-state/ Tue, 14 Jun 2022 22:13:00 +0000 https://hospiceofhowardcounty.com/public-health-division-launches-new-wic-educational-website-state/ The Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH) announced this week the launch of the new Delaware WIC educational website.

The Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH) announced this week the launch of the new Delaware WIC educational website.

The website includes information on nutrition, breastfeeding, and WIC programming for families, covering all stages of pregnancy, postpartum, infancy, and children up to age 5. year. It currently includes a link to information and contact numbers related to the infant formula shortage. The site can be viewed at Delaware.WICresources.org.

WIC, also known as the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infant & Children, is a federal nutrition program designed to help pregnant women, new mothers and young children eat well and learn about nutrition.

WIC provides nutritious foods to supplement diets, healthy eating information, breastfeeding support, referrals to health, wellness and social services, and nutrition education.

Delaware’s new WIC site provides evidence-based information on breastfeeding, nutritional feeding practices and information for pregnant women and fathers, officials noted.

The website also has information about the Delaware WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program, which begins June 1 and ends October 31. The Farmers Market Nutrition Program materials, located on the site, guide participants on how and where to redeem their $30 Nutrition Voucher provided by the program.

“Delaware is fully committed to the health and well-being of our residents, especially our children,” said outgoing DPH Director Dr. Karyl Rattay. “Good health starts with good nutrition. The launch of the Delaware WIC website comes at a time when it is needed most. Families can learn how to access healthy foods at Delaware Farmers Markets, and they can also get up-to-date information about WIC and its related programs, including breastfeeding and infant formula information.

The new website marks a step change in how the Delaware WIC provides nutrition education materials, officials said. During the pandemic, WIC transitioned from an in-person service provider to a virtual service offering. The COVID-19 pandemic has presented unique opportunities to provide WIC services to at-risk women, infants, and children who may not have previously participated in WIC. The waivers allowed WIC to provide services remotely and offered virtual opportunities for nutrition education and breastfeeding support to WIC families. Participants have fully embraced this new model of delivering WIC services to the community, they said.

WIC is one of the nation’s largest federal nutrition programs, serving approximately 6.3 million people nationwide, including about half of all infants born in the United States. WIC supports the short- and long-term health of low-income pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding women, infants, and children up to age 5.

In fiscal year 2021, the Delaware WIC program served 17,199 participants, including 9,107 participants in New Castle County, 4,353 in Kent County, and 3,739 in Sussex County.

Delawarens are encouraged to visit Delaware.WICresources.org or follow the Delaware WIC on Facebook, Instagram or YouTube, where they will find information about Delaware WIC programs and healthy recipes using WIC-approved ingredients.
