Summary: ClinicalTrials.gov was launched in 2000 by the National Library of Medicine.  In 2008, as a result of Section 801 of the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007, ClinicalTrials.gov was expanded to include basic results reporting, including adverse effects.  Due to reporting bias, results reported in ClinicalTrials.gov may not be published anywhere else.  This presentation will provide an overview of this resource and how librarians can use the site to support clinicians, researchers and consumers.  The presentation will also briefly describe the various types and phases of clinical trials and the background and current status of trial registration and reporting.

Connecting America: Building Resilience with Social Media

The Center for National Policy is an independent policy institute focused on addressing global issues faced by America. The Center’s Taskforce for a Resilient America released a meeting summary paper after holding a series of meetings which brought together leaders in the fields of social networking, security, emergency response, advertising, public relations, public opinion polling, market research, as well as screenwriters, producers, media executives, and academics, to analyze methods of promoting cultural resilience. They provide a number of steps that can be taken to empower people to use social media to take a more active role in preparedness, response and recovery.

CMS Initiative Helps People Make the Most of Their New Health Coverage

Friday, June 20th, 2014

Today, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) launched a national initiative “From Coverage to Care” (C2C), which is designed to help answer questions that people may have about their new health coverage, to help them make the most of their new benefits, including taking full advantage of primary care and preventive services. It also seeks to give health care providers the tools they need to promote patient engagement.

“Helping to ensure that new health care consumers know about the benefits available through their coverage, and how to use it appropriately to obtain primary care and preventive services is essential to improving the health of the nation and reducing health care costs,” said Dr. Cara V. James, director of the CMS Office of Minority Health. Dr. James noted that,“to achieve these goals, we need to make sure that people who are newly covered know that their coverage can help them stay healthy, not just help them get better if they get sick.”

C2C will be an ongoing project. As more and more people obtain coverage, there will be a continuous need to ensure that people have answers to questions they might have about their new coverage and are appropriately connected to the health care system to help them live long, healthy lives.

Today’s launch also marks the release of the new Roadmap to Better Care and a Healthier You, http://marketplace.cms.gov/help-us/c2c-roadmap.pdf?linkId=8267630, which includes 8 steps to help consumers and health care providers be informed about the diverse benefits available through their coverage and how to use it appropriately to access to primary care and preventive services. Among other things, the “Roadmap” contains information on health care coverage terms, the differences between primary care and emergency care, and the cost differences of decisions to seek care in- and out-of-network, where applicable to the consumer’s health plan.

 

More information about C2C and other helpful resources, including a 10-part video series, to help those with new health care coverage make the most of their coverage, and raise awareness about the importance of getting routine primary care and regular preventive care are available at: http://marketplace.cms.gov/c2c. People with related questions about the C2C initiative should write to Coveragetocare@cms.hhs.gov
