I love “Gone With the Wind” and whenever I hear the name “Tara”, this is the image that comes to mind.
The topics are eclectic, the presentation precise. It’s a great edition, definitely worth a visit! I’m having my “morning coffee” at 1839, but I’ll be reading every submission!
It’s Change of Shift week and I’m hosting! I’ll be posting the nursing carnival at the Nursing Jobs. org blog, where my history and research columns reside. There is still time to get your submissions in. I’ll need them by Wednesday morning (tomorrow). Use the Blog Carnival widget or the “Contact” button above.
The Nursing Voices forum is up and running, now with new categories for advance practice nurses. If you haven’t had a chance to visit, come on over and see what’s goin’ on! Tell ’em Emergiblog sent ya!
Rita at MSSP Nexus sent me the following reminder via email:
This info came to my attention recently and I thought you might be willing to help get the word out – health care providers who applied for National Provider Identifier (NPI) numbers need to login to NPPES and review their info by July 16th. It will be published by NPPES on August 1st. and could contain optional data that may have originally been submitted, like social security numbers.
This does not affect RN’s as they don’t bill independently, but could include Advanced Practice Nurses if they bill CMS independently and have applied for an NPI. RN’s may also want to pass this info on to the physicians they work with.
More information can be found on her post: NPI Registry Goes Live.
Thanks for the heads up, Rita!
