                regard to coverage under the third prong of the definition of disability and to reinstate the reasoning of
                the Supreme Court in School Board of Nassau County v Arline, 480 US 273 (1987) which set forth a
                board view of the third prong of the definition of handicap under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
            b. To reject the standards enunciated by the Supreme Court in Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky,
                Inc., v Williams, 534 US 184 (2002), that the terms “substantially” and “major” in the definition of
                disability under the ADA “need to be interpreted strictly to create a demanding standard for qualifying
                as disabled,” and that to be substantially limited in performing a major life activity under the ADA “an
                individual must have an impairment that prevents or severely restricts the individual from doing
                activities that are of central importance to most people’s daily lives.”

                Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky, Inc., v Williams, 534 US 184 (2002) for “substantially limits,” and
                applied by lower courts in numerous decisions, has created an inappropriately high level of limitation
                necessary to obtain coverage under the ADA, to convey that it is the intent of Congress that the primary
                object of attention in cases brought under the ADA should be whether entities covered under the ADA
                have complied with their obligations, and to convey that the question of whether an individual’s
                impairment is a disability under the ADA should not demand extensive analysis.

2.      Which of these is addressed by the HIPPA non-discrimination requirement?

                   appropriate and necessary
              b. Always involves an outcome involving authorization of payment for only those services deemed
                   causally related to the work injury or work illness by the reviewer (if the condition being assessed or
                   treated has been accepted as causally related to the covered injury)
              c. Involves outcomes which, if the determination is adverse, indicates that the treating physician who is
                   requesting the diagnostic study or procedure has engaged, or attempting to engage, in some form of
                   overutilization

                   unable to certify the request based upon apparent deviation from evidence-based medicine or
                   insufficient information to justify the request.
              c. Telephone conference generally represent an opportunity for the peer reviewer to extend a professional
                   courtesy of informing the treating physician that the request is not being certified, and explaining the
                   rationale. There is no opportunity for the treating physician to attempt the reverse a proposed non-
                   certification.
              d. The peer reviewer must always allow at least 72 hours to reasonably improve the chances that contact
                   with the treating physician can be made.

Relating HPM and Value-Based Design to Both the Private Practice and Corporate Medicine Physician
1.       B

Legal Implications Associated with Corporate Medical Department Responses to Pandemics, Including H1N1
1.      OSHA has stated that its inspections will be based largely on CDC Healthcare Personnel Guidelines and
        information on OSHA’s website.
2.      The PREP Act authorizes the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to issue a
        declaration that provides immunity from tort liability for certain claims of loss caused, arising out of, relating to,
        or resulting from a public health emergency.
3.      A private individual performing duties in compliance with orders or instructions of a state or local health
        authority generally is not liable for the death of or injury to a person or for damage to property, except in the
        case of willful misconduct or gross negligence.
4.      Employers with a legitimate business need or objective can require employees to obtain vaccinations against
         various illnesses as a legitimate job qualification, subject to certain exceptions.
5.       Many states permit practitioners to dispense medications to their patients with some limitations. All states
         permit physicians and other practitioners to dispense medications in public health emergencies under certain
         limitations and conditions. However, not all states deemed the H1N1 pandemic to be a public health
         emergency sufficient to waive prohibitions on dispensing. Consequently, physicians and other practitioners
         were permitted to dispense medications to their patients only in those states where permitted.

Operationalizing HPM: The Value of Integrated Data Management
1.       D: All components are important considerations for an effectively integrated strategy. If only one or two of
         these are present, the effectiveness of integration can be significantly impaired
2.       D: While all other responses represent clear opportunities to leverage the shared information, integration of
         personal health records (employee and family member-entered data) with absence data represents an
         unacceptable violation of HIPAA
3.       C: The more integrated the data, the more effective collaborative decision-making can be with respect to
         organizational planning. As such, data integration should increase collaborative communications between
         health and productivity management personnel

Occupational Health Services: Organization and Competencies
1.      C: Vertical integration is about production and a single owner controlling the whole up and down process of

4.        B: The health of employees and contractors in the workforce is managed thru fitness for work and medical
          surveillance processes. Community health is promoted by identifying and mitigating potentially negative
          impacts of the project and identifying and enhancing potentially positive impacts from the project.
5.        True: the HIA works to integrate the entire ESHIA process by mapping these important linkages.

Quantifying the Return on Investment for Worksite Clinics
1.       D: ROI for worksite clinics is difficult to accurately measure, with no consistent approach currently available.
         One constant, however, is that lost work time for travel for off-site is routinely included in ROI calculations.
2.       True: Jean Baptiste Say was a 17 th Century French economist. Say’s Law applies to most products and
         services available in the US and not just healthcare.
3.       D: Survey respondents had worksite clinic software to track utilization. However, a minority used HEDIS or
         CPT codes in ROI calculations and only a minority offered full services primary care.
4.       E: All the identified costs should be at least considered as part of a ROI calculation for worksite healthcare
         clinics. Although not included here, pharmaceuticals, maintenance of professional licensure, facility licensure
         fees should also be included.
5.       C: The bottom line is the impact of worksite clinic use on overall healthcare costs. While the other metrics
         included in this question are important considerations, the most important measure from a business standpoint
         for employers is healthcare cost reduction.

Individual Scientific Abstract Oral Presentations
1.       B: The biopsychosocial model study the effect of stressful work conditions on aggravation of work related
         diseases and the development of psychological impairments. The biosychosocial model doesn’t focus on
         social life events outside work and also biopsychosocial model is not only a psychosocmatic model.
         Biopsychosocial model is the interplay between psychological condition of one worker, his medical illness and
         his work life.
2.       A: Ergonomic stressors act as stressful work conditions which might aggravate MSDs and might lead to
         development of psychological impairment and thus the biopsychosocial model will take place.

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Seaman Medical Examinations but Were Afraid to Ask

The Patient-centered Medical Home, Worksite Clinics, and the OEM Clinician
1.       C: While implementation costs will increase expenditures for employees in the near term, this is certainly not a
         point of appeal for employers
2.       B: The medical home model as outlined does not include patient incentives for use, which may be an employer
         decision to provide through benefits design (such as IBM has done)
3.       C: All other findings have been demonstrated in medical home pilots. Healthcare costs, particularly for
         hospitalizations and emergency department use, have declined
4.       C: Independent medical treatment by worksite clinics can contribute to further fragmentation of care, and
         interfere with the care coordination provided by the patient centered medical home
5.       E: Closer patient-provider relationships appear to be beneficial from a number of perspectives, including all
         listed

Session 2306            10:30am-12Noon                                                         1.5 ABPM MOC Credits
Hazards in Drinking Water from Private and Municipal Wells
1.       False: Municipal water sources have strict standards for allowable levels of contaminants and additives.
         Alternatively, bottled water does not have to adhere to the same standards.
2.       C: Drinking water standards have been delineated for 20 contaminants including arsenic, nitrate, bacteria,
         radioactivity, heavy metals such as lead and mercury, and several pesticides
3.       False: There is no requirement that private wells meet safe drinking water standards. Private well owners are
         encouraged to use federal drinking water standards as a guide for assessing their water quality.
4.       B: Ingestion of too much nitrate, particularly in baby formula prepared with well water, can result in “baby blue”
         syndrome which is an abnormality of oxygen distribution through the blood. Excess nitrates in well water are
         frequently the result contamination with human and/or animal waste that may result from septic system failure,
         problems at the well head and drainage from animal herds into the water source.
5.       Bacteria are the number one cause of rural well contamination. This typically results from inappropriate
         placement and/or failure of a home septic system. The remaining products are all very real sources of
         contamination, however, they do not approach the widespread contamination due to bacteria.
