Health Care Reform in West Virginia: A Lesson from the States

A big casualty of the congressional health care reform legislation would be the loss of state flexibility in the financing and delivery of affordable health care options for their citizens.

Under the House bill, the federal government would regulate private insurance for the first time and dramatically increase its control over the Medicaid program. Flexibility will be sacrificed for uniformity and federal control.

Congress is ignoring important lessons that states have learned. It should pay particular attention to West Virginia, which has experimented with Medicaid reform and has learned a lot about what those reforms accomplished.

Once, at the School of Nursing, grade point average and standardized test scores were all that mattered. Students hoped for the highest marks they could achieve and administrators used them as a barometer for success.

Or, rather, then came Betty Shelton again. She had worked at West Virginia University for three years as a faculty member before taking an administrative job in Pennsylvania. It didn’t last long. The commute was easier, but she missed the supportive environment she’d left behind. So she returned to Morgantown in 2004, this time as the assistant dean of student services and with the intention to turn admissions on its head.

Transforming Care Together Initiative at Charleston Area Medical Center Increases Time Spent on Pati

An efficiency initiative at Charleston Area Medical Center (CAMC) is increasing the time nurses spend caring for patients and directly contributing to better overall patient care, reduced costs and decreased hospital-created illness.

The process improvement program, Transforming Care Together, initiated in September in conjunction with RWD(R) Healthcare, has increased patient care time at CAMC’s Trauma Unit. With nurses spending more time caring for patients at the bedside, pressure ulcers - also known as bedsores - have been reduced to zero for the last two quarters, which used to be as high as seven percent within the unit. Patients unable to change position in bed are at increased risk for bedsores, which may lead to complications due to infection.
