The Arkansas Spinal Cord Commission serves only Arkansas residents who have sustained a spinal cord disability. Arkansas state law ACA requires that: Every public and private health and social agency and attending physician shall report to the commission within five 5 calendar days after identification of any spinal cord disabled person.
Within fifteen 15 days of the report and identification of a spinal cord disabled person, the commission shall notify the spinal cord disabled person or the most immediate family members of their right to assistance from the state, the services available, and the eligibility requirements.
If a healthcare professional, individual with a spinal cord disability or another interested individual identifies someone with a spinal cord disability, contact the Arkansas Spinal Cord Commission to make a referral. It is better to refer someone who is not eligible than not to refer someone who is eligible for services.
To make a referral, contact the regional Case Management office or call the ASCC administrative office at or between a. Monday thru Friday. Confidential fax is available 24 hours a day at Spinal cord disabilities result from damage to the spinal cord. ASCC serves only Arkansans whose spinal cord has been damaged.
This damage may result from a traumatic spinal cord injury, from a birth defect such as spina bifida or sacral agenesis, or a disease process of the spinal cord including spinal cord tumors, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis, or spinal stenosis. This list of diagnoses is not exhaustive and if a health care provider or individual has an individual whom they believe may qualify for services, that individual should be referred and an ASCC Case Manager will be ased to collect medical records and information to determine the spinal cord disability.
Individuals with disabilities of the spinal column that do not affect the spinal cord, the brain or brain stem only without cord involvementor the peripheral nerves typically do not qualify for ASCC services. Once an individual is determined to have a spinal cord disability, the ASCC Medical criteria are applied.
The medical criteria assess the actual disability or limitations in function resulting from the spinal cord damage. For the purpose of determining disability, the four criteria listed below are used. An individual must have at least three of the following symptoms. Medical records or information will be used to verify these criteria:. In some cases, particularly those with a diagnosis of central cord syndrome, the paralysis may be more severe in the arms and hands than in the legs to the point that adaptive devices or assistance is required for completing activities of daily living such as feeding, dressing, and hygiene.
Lack of Normal Sensation - A lack of normal sensation at or below the level of lesion that in absent or impaired ability to discern touch, pressure, pain the ability to tell sharp from dullor temperature the ability to tell hot from cold. The individual should have enough loss of sensation to have more than normal risk to the skin and musculoskeletal structures.
Loss of Normal Bladder Control - The lack of ability to voluntarily empty the bladder in a timely manner without accidents or the use of equipment or medication. Frequently, individuals with spinal cord injury will present with a neurogenic bladder. When this condition is present, it is usually obvious with symptoms of either urinary incontinence involuntary voiding or urinary retention inability to void.
However, with minimal spinal cord damage, the symptoms may be subtler. Loss of Normal Bowel Control - The lack of ability to voluntarily empty the bowel in a timely manner without accidents or the use of equipment or medication. Frequently, individuals with damage to the spinal cord will present with a neurogenic bowel.
The Arkansas Spinal Cord Commission and our Case Managers provide numerous services to individuals who have met the medical criteria, including lifelong case management, counseling, guidance, advocacy, resource identification, referral for other services, technical assistance, and other services without regard to income. When an individual needs purchased services or financial assistance in obtaining equipment or services related specifically to the spinal cord disability, the individual must also meet financial criteria.
The Arkansas Spinal Cord Commission will administer a statewide program to identify and meet the unique and lifelong needs of people with spinal cord disabilities in Arkansas. Commission Meetings Regular meetings are held quarterly in February, May, and August on the last Tuesday of the month and in November on the third Tuesday of the month except when changed by the majority. Patient medical information has historically been stored on paper in filing cabinets at various medical offices. In recent years, many clinics and hospitals have shifted from paper charts to electronic health records.
Inall Arkansas hospitals are using an EHR system, and experts estimate that more than 60 percent of office-based Arkansas physicians currently use an EHR system. A digital health care infrastructure provides many benefits over paper systems.
But just like paper charts, electronic health records are stored within a clinic or hospital system and are rarely shared with your other providers. As a result, your doctors seldom have access to all your health information, which they need to give you the best care possible. SHARE allows participating doctors, nurses, specialists, health services professionals, and public health authorities to access and securely exchange with each other real-time, electronic patient information that is protected by federal and state privacy and security laws.
Appropriate, timely sharing of vital patient information through SHARE can better inform decision-making at the point of care and allow providers to:. By viewing health histories in SHARE, health care providers will have more complete medical information to provide high-quality care and coordinate treatment with other health care providers.
