Elderwood joins HEALTHeLINK

Elderwood joins HEALTHeLINK

HEALTHeLINK today announced Elderwood is the latest long term care facility to participate in Western New York’s clinical information exchange.  This includes Elderwood’s 12 local assisted living and skilled nursing facilities located in Amherst, Cheektowaga, Grand Island, Hamburg, Lancaster, West Seneca, Wheatfield and Williamsville.

“Having access to one’s latest test results, medication history and other current clinical information provide treating physicians with a more complete medical picture on the patient they are treating. This is especially important when a patient transitions from one health care setting to another,” said Dan Porreca, executive director, HEALTHeLINK. “With this information readily and securely available, physicians can provide more timely and effective treatment at the point of care.”

Moving Expense Deduction

If you move your home you may be able to deduct the cost of the move on your federal tax return next year. This may apply if you move to start a new job or to work at the same job in a new location. In order to deduct your moving expenses, your move must meet three requirements:

1. Your move must closely relate to the start of work.  In most cases, you can consider moving expenses within one year of the date you start work at a new job location. Additional rules apply to this requirement.

2. Your move must meet the distance test.  Your new main job location must be at least 50 miles farther from your old home than your prior job location. For example, let’s say that your old job was three miles from your old home. To meet this test, your new job must be at least 53 miles from your old home.
