<br />Health Board Minutes - May 21, 1991 <br /> <br />Page: 2 <br /> <br />ADMINISTRATOR'S REPORT <br /> <br />Financial Report: David Specter presented the current "Budget Status <br />Report". The Professional Services line of the budget appears high because the <br />expenditures aren't evenly distributed throughout the year, especially in the dental <br />program, and Travel may be under-budgeted. <br /> <br />Proaram/Grant Update: David Specter updated the Board: <br /> <br />* <br /> <br />Consolidated Contract: About $5,000 in additions for the cash portion <br />of the consolidated contract has been received to date. <br /> <br />* <br /> <br />Vaccines: Nancy Gow explained that now the actual dollar value of <br />vaccine used will be accounted for as a line item to satisfy Federal <br />requirements. The vaccine dollar amounts will now be detailed in the <br />grants. <br /> <br />* <br /> <br />Dental Program: The Dental Program, which is intended to provide <br />primary care in the form of education, prevention, hygiene, and minimal <br />restorative work, was reviewed. The program difficulties were discussed. <br />The current program ends June 30th, and the next begins in September. <br /> <br />* <br /> <br />Interagency Coordinating Council (lAC): The grant for lAC has been <br />submitted for 1992, and is being awarded at $2,800. This is the last year <br />for the lAC grant. Alternative funding sources were discussed: United <br />Good Neighbors has been approached for the Birth to Six portion of the <br />program; and the school districts have been contacted for the Birth to <br />Three portion. <br /> <br />Automated Billina System: David Specter reported that improvements <br />to the automated billing system are being reviewed; staff has attended State training <br />sessions; systems in Thurston County are being looked at; and the Human Services <br />Department system is being considered as they have software for Medicaid billing. <br />The experience of Human Services and other Health Departments is that they are <br />getting a five or six fold increase in efficiency, and time saved by going with automated <br />software programs. <br />
