Is anyone / everyone accounting for the time your hospital administrators or government relations staff is spending on the health care reform discussion? It appears that this would count under F7 community health improvement advocacy to improve access to care. I’d like to hear what others are thinking.

Yes, Augusta, we are counting these activities and in the same category as you suggest (F7) – Advocacy for Community Health Improvement.

I count a portion of the time, as the advocacy is often in reference to reimbursement issues for hospitals…I don’t believe that is community benefit. But for example, discussing the Community Coalitions for Access and Quality Improvement Act, would definitely count.
