NPI Numbers for ATs are a Must
The National Provider Identifier (NPI) is a unique 10-digit number that individually identifies all health care providers. The NATA is urging all ATs to have an NPI number as it is now becoming a standard in the healthcare environment, especially where Electronic medical records (EMRs) are concerned. You can read the statement from the NATA here. For further information and instructions on acquiring an NPI number, you can visit the following link: http://www.nata.org/NPI
Lecture and a Movie
Two Delaware ATs presented a Lecture and a Movie night for the new "Concussion" movie. Dr. Tom Buckley and Dr. Tom Kaminski from the University of Delaware discussed concussion research, explained best practices, addressed head impact facts and misconceptions, and took questions from the audience. The event was a huge success and the theater at Penn Cinema was sold out. The DATA was also invited and was able to set up a table in the main lobby of the theater to advocate for ATs and concussion care.
Delaware ATs Recognized for Lifesaving Efforts
Delaware's own Jim Tucker (Caesar Rodney High School) and Craig Aukamp (Wilmington Charter School) were recognized in a recent article in the Delaware State News for their efforts to treat a heart attack victim in the stands during an event. You can read the full article here.
