*** Change the world through spring cleaning…

Want to make a difference to fellow communicators halfway around the world? Take a moment to do a little spring cleaning and donate some of your communications resources (books, manuals, CDs, DVDs) for the first media and communication resource center in Ethiopia.

The resource center, sponsored by the Population Media Center (PMC), is open to any professional communicator in Ethiopia and serves the general business community in Addis Ababa. The goal of the Population Media Center is to improve the health and well-being of people around the world through the use of entertainment-education strategies.

*** Communication books and resource materials for Ethiopia:

I asked Dr. Negussie Teffera about the materials needed for the PMC Media Resource Center being assembled in Addis Ababa.

Ned: What types of books or materials do you need?

Negussie: We need all kinds of communication and media related books including

journalism (broadcast and print media, cinema), theatre art, drama,

speech, communication research journals, public relations, media and

communication training manuals, etc.

Ned: Who would be able to take advantage of these resources?

Negussie: Ethiopian journalists, media practitioners, communication researchers,

writers and theatre art experts, public relation officers, media

trainers, etc.

Ned: Are there many communication professionals in Addis Ababa?

Negussie: Yes, there are many media and communication practitioners and

professionals.

Ned: Is English a commonly spoken language among business professionals?

Negussie: Yes, English is a commonly spoken language. English is the language of

instruction starting from high school. It is also accepted language for

official duties in government and private agencies. Most trainings and

workshops are held in English language. All most all books in our

library are in English. There are no communication and media related

books and manuals in the Ethiopian official language Amharic.

Ned: And would books and manuals in English be useful for your resource

center?

Negussie: It is books in English that we use for all our trainings and higher education.

I asked Bill Ryerson, PMC’s president, about their work in Ethiopia:

Hi Ned,

PMC-Ethiopia is our largest country office in both space and number of staff. We have 15 staff there, plus contract part-time writers and actors. We occupy all of one floor of a small office building. The suite has a conference room and our resource center as well. You'll see in the attached a description of the projects being conducted by PMC-Ethiopia, as well as descriptions of our work in other countries. Basically, we are producing a radio serial drama, a radio talk show, two magazine programs for use in the Ethiopian regions of Afar and Somalia, and various print materials.

In most offices, our staff numbers range from one to four or five. In addition to our headquarters in Shelburne, Vermont, PMC currently has offices in Brazil, Mexico, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Saint Lucia, and Senegal for projects under way or being developed. We have projects without PMC offices operating in Vietnam and Jamaica. The organization also has a West Coast office in the United States focused on helping the entertainment industry to incorporate themes related to population and reproductive health. PMC has new projects in development in Botswana, China, Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Eastern Caribbean, Egypt, Guatemala, Honduras, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, the Western Pacific, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. PMC has continuation projects in development in Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, Mali and the Philippines.

27.) Communications Support, HIPAA Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Third Party, CTGI, Washington, DC

Project Description:

The Administrative Simplification provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) require the Department of Health and Human Services to establish national standards for electronic health care transactions and code sets, and standard identifiers for providers, health plans, and employers. It also addresses the security and privacy of patient data. The health care industry has been working towards building an infrastructure to accommodate the complex legislative mandates resulting from HIPAA. The Department of Veterans Affairs Veterans Health Administration (VHA) is a covered entity under the law.

The vast diversity in the business rules and functionality inherent in each payer and provider system presents an enormous challenge to creating a functioning HIPAA-compliant health care industry. The national standards and code sets do not unify provider billing systems and payer adjudications systems nor do they address the autonomy of both provider and payer entities to establish their own respective business requirements/policies; they do however, present a standard for the electronic data exchange of healthcare information. As a result, the payer and provider community must address each other’s business needs if they are to achieve both HIPAA-compliance and processing efficiency.

Veterans' Health Administration (VHA), Chief Business Office (CBO) has invested considerable time and effort over the past several years implementing multiple electronic data interchange (EDI) initiatives and resolving the business rule conflicts between the VA and the payer community. This effort continues as Veterans’ Health Administration (VHA) expands its data exchange reach to include additional payers and transaction types. In addition, the HIPAA standards committees are forecasting the mandate of additional transaction sets, otherwise known as electronic data format standards. When implemented, the collective body of HIPAA transactions would give VHA a more robust business product and make VHA a more viable business partner in the e-Business community.

The Veterans Health Administration (VHA), Chief Business Office (CBO) requires an e-Commerce subject matter expert also skilled in quality writing and desktop design to aid VHA in developing HIPAA electronic transaction and code set-related communications.

Sizzle (Why would someone want this opportunity):

VHA is a leader in the health care community with regard to implementation of many HIPAA Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) projects, including the NPI project. VHA is one of the largest integrated health care systems in the nation. VHA has met the NPI compliance deadline and has an opportunity to serve as an example to other providers on how to effectively implement the NPI in HIPAA transactions. Working with this project and team allows the candidate to be at the forefront of industry change.

Job Description:

This position calls for a candidate who specializes in communications; one who can develop a comprehensive, strategic communications plan, one who can develop and maintain schedules for communication, one who can create marketing materials and function as a liaison between EDI business office managers and technical development teams, and also manage change based on the evolution of the health care industry.

The healthcare industry is continually advancing its technological capacity. Health care is one of the last industries to adopt Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) business methods. This puts VHA, as a health care provider, and the Chief Business Office, as a driver of technical development, in a position that requires integrated communications and awareness in order to stay current with this emerging industry. HIPAA legislation is the foundation for technical change. As Implementation Guidelines are updated and published, VHA must be aware and prepare for those changes systematically and strategically. As one of the largest health care organizations in the United States, implementing change throughout VHA is a process that requires collaboration, communication, and planning. The candidate for this position must have a strong communications and marketing skill set, but also a foundational understanding of the health care industry and software lifecycle development.

The candidate will work closely with business owners, managers, VHA CBO Project Managers and component managers, Electronic Transactions and Code Sets (ETCS) Specialists, and VHA Health Systems Design and Development staff and produce strategies, correspondence, marketing materials, presentations, and other materials for multiple audiences regarding HIPAA business solutions and related activities.

The candidate will design integrated communications strategies across CBO-sponsored projects and develop a methodology to communicate updates to national audiences on regular intervals.

The candidate will prepare announcements, presentations and other related materials to disseminate HIPAA topics and educate users and stakeholders.

The candidate will present a monthly briefing and status report to the e-initiative sponsor discussing the progress of the on-going CBO communication effort.

The candidate will work with the VHA CBO Project Managers, component managers, project team members, and Electronic Transactions and Code Sets (ETCS) Specialists to develop the approach and communications materials regarding change management strategies for ongoing implementation of HIPAA business solutions.

The candidate will develop communication strategies and materials for the change management aspects of HIPAA business solutions.

The candidate will develop branding collateral materials for use in communicating focused messages for audiences develop message and vehicle information

The candidate will develop repetitive communications to meet these change management strategies.

Desired Skills:

 Ability to work across project teams to develop cross-cutting strategies, correspondence, marketing materials, and presentations

 Ability to develop a comprehensive integrated strategy in message development that addresses the needs of audiences across all CBO-sponsored projects

 Ability to assess the entire portfolio of EDI work and develop announcements, presentations, and communications materials to share status on HIPAA topics, including educational components, to stakeholders and end users.

 Excellent written and verbal communication

Degree or work experience B.A. required, M.A. preferred
