NUHS Expands Free Services at Veterans Clinic
Press Release

Wednesday, 11 November 2015 00:00
Lombard - National University of Health Sciences (NUHS) in Lombard has been providing free acupuncture for combat veterans with post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD) since 2010. Since then, the Veterans Clinic at the NUHS Whole Health Center has provided close to 4000 free treatments to veterans and their families.

The university is now expanding the program, offering more services for veteran health care needs. The expanded services are made possible by donations from corporate sponsor China-Gel in Arlington Heights, manufacturer of herbal topical pain relievers. 

The NUHS Veterans Clinic will now offer full acupuncture services for all health conditions, as well as moxibustion and tui na therapies. Moxibustion is the therapeutic application of heat to specific acupuncture points on the body to accelerate healing. Tui na is a vigorous and therapeutic form of massage along acupuncture meridians. 

“We’ve chosen specific therapies that have been shown to be effective in pain relief, PTSD and a wide range of health conditions often suffered by combat veterans,” says Dr. Stiefel. To help with at home care, the NUHS Veterans Clinic provides veterans with free pain relief products from China-Gel. 

In addition to the expanded free services which will be offered at the Veterans Clinic, NUHS will also offer deep discounts for veterans on other health care services such as physical examinations, chiropractic services, radiology, orthotics, physical rehabilitation and more.

“Since we began our free acupuncture for veterans five years ago, we’ve seen substantial improvement in patients with PTSD symptoms,” says Dr. Hyundo Kim, chief clinician at the NUHS Veterans Clinic. “By expanding our services and covering a wider range of conditions, we hope to offer veterans safe and natural health care choices that can improve their quality of life.”

 “A University’s responsibility is to give back to its community,” says President Stiefel. “Veterans are among the most honored members of that community, and their health is important to us.”

San Diego, CA—October ___, 2015—ChiroTouch™, the nation’s leader in chiropractic software, announced its support of the recent final rules for the CMS EHR Incentive Program released on October 6th, 2015. 
“Among our top priorities are being on the leading edge of healthcare information and helping the chiropractor have a louder voice in the healthcare system.  Rulings like these are critical for our doctors and we are pleased to see the change in the rules to simplify the program and create a shorter reporting period for 2015.  While our software has been ready to accommodate this program, it’s encouraging to see that it’s now easier than ever for eligible providers to comply with the program requirements,” said Robert Moberg, CEO of ChiroTouch.
The simplification of the new Modified Stage 2 rules and the upcoming 2018 Stage 3 rules will align all providers with the same 9 objectives in the EHR Incentive Program. ChiroTouch has analyzed the new rules and its technology is compliant. ChiroTouch is certified to the required objectives for Meaningful Use and has implemented methods to make it easy to track and comply inside both its ChiroTouch and SmartCloud EHR software systems.  
“Our goal and commitment to the chiropractic profession is to deliver technology solutions and critical information for regulation compliance, improve patient management for better care delivery, and aggregate data to prove the cost and clinical effectiveness of chiropractic care,” added Robert. “We are in full support of the chiropractic profession and do everything we can to help these doctors be an integral part of a patient’s healthcare choice and healthcare conversation.  In the end, this helps the American healthcare system, society, and the overall success of the practice of chiropractic.”
The benefits of EHR go far beyond compliance with federal standards for interoperability, HIPAA security, and digital messaging with patients and other outside providers. The office efficiencies created by EHR technology allow for better patient care and management as well as better record documentation and clinic profitability.  The EHR incentive program is now about collaboration with all healthcare providers, imaging centers, hospitals and the ability to digitally communicate patient care and involve patients through digital engagement. The combination of Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) penalties, Meaningful Use payment reductions and the new value-based modifier program will reduce Medicare reimbursement income to chiropractors by over 6% starting in 2017 and increasing each year thereafter. Doctors who participate will avoid these payment reductions.

Dr. Anthony V. D’Antoni Authors Chapter for Gray’s Anatomy
Press Release
Written by TAC Staff   
Thursday, 15 October 2015 01:35
Chicago - In a move forward for the profession, National University of Health Sciences (NUHS) graduate Dr. Anthony V. D’Antoni (DC ’03), received the honor of serving as author of the ankle and foot chapter of the new 41st edition of Gray’s Anatomy. The chapter appears in the British reference version, which is the unabridged and prestigious reference counterpart to the well-known student textbook edition.

d-antoniDr. D’Antoni credits the rigorous education he received from NUHS, especially in the anatomic sciences, as well as his experience as director of anatomy at a podiatric medicine program, for the necessary expertise in guiding the chapter’s comprehensive exploration of the ankle and foot.

“The chapter contained an excess of 25,000 words and was carefully scrutinized by the editor-in-chief, Dr. Susan Standring, a section editor and a team of ten full-time editors in London, England. These editors oversee the final content to ensure that the chapter was written from an evidence-based perspective,” says Dr. D’Antoni. “Since Gray’s Anatomy is the oldest medical text and has been in continuous publication for over 150 years, it actually predates chiropractic medicine.”

Dr. Anthony D’Antoni was a practicing microbiologist when he enrolled in National University’s doctor of chiropractic program in 1999, and already had a master’s degree. After earning his DC degree in 2003, he began a PhD program in health sciences where he specialized in medical education at the School of Health and Medical Sciences of Seton Hall University. “I have always been very interested in medical education, particularly in basic sciences and clinical anatomy,” says Dr. D’Antoni.

Dr. D’Antoni had taught college and graduate level sciences courses before, during and after his education at NUHS. He taught clinical anatomy and histology at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine in Harlem, New York City, and then spent five years as director of clinical anatomy at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, also in Harlem.

Currently, Dr. D’Antoni is clinical professor and director of anatomy at the CUNY School of Medicine (formerly Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education). At age 42, Dr. D’Antoni is currently one of the youngest anatomy course directors at any allopathic medical school in New York City.

grays-anatomy-41stHaving taught clinical anatomy and other basic sciences to DPM, DO, and MD students, Dr. D’Antoni is quick to point out that his knowledge of clinical anatomy, embryology, histology and other sciences came from his studies at NUHS. “My PhD was in health sciences and not anatomy, so I could not do what I do today without the education I received from National,” he says. “The morphological sciences are such an important part of chiropractic education. At NUHS especially, the anatomy program is extremely demanding and thorough. And it’s my anatomy education from NUHS that brought me to where I am today.”

Dr. D’Antoni has published numerous research papers and is known for mentoring many students in anatomical research. He currently has 12 BS/MD students working in his laboratory that emphasizes clinical and reverse translational anatomic research at the CUNY School of Medicine. In addition to his work on Gray’s Anatomy, Dr. D’Antoni is also on the editorial board of the journal Translational Research in Anatomy, as well as the editorial board of Clinical Anatomy, the official journal of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists.

“We are proud of Dr. Anthony D’Antoni for reaching this milestone on behalf of his profession. The fact that one of our graduates would qualify as an author for Gray’s Anatomy and build a career teaching anatomy in medical schools based on his education here, is indisputable evidence of the quality of education we offer,” says NUHS President Joseph Stiefel. “Dr. D’Antoni is not only proving himself a leader for our profession in academia and research, but also in building respect for chiropractic medicine among other medical specialties around the world.”
