[00:00:03.810]Welcome to the Barkley Speech Language and Hearing Clinic.
[00:00:06.180]I'm Kristy Weissling, and I'm the clinic coordinator
[00:00:08.390]and program director for the program.
[00:00:10.670]And I'm gonna take you on a little tour
[00:00:12.500]of our speech and language clinic today.
[00:00:14.840]We're gonna start off with two very, very important people
[00:00:17.470]to our enterprise, and that is our patient care associate
[00:00:21.190]and our billing specialist who are here to work with you
[00:00:24.180]and help you to see the patients
[00:00:25.660]that you'll see in our clinic.
[00:00:30.870]Veronica is our billing specialist,
[00:00:34.150]and she will be working
[00:00:36.580]if you come here to the university,
[00:00:38.730]on how to take care of billing for your patients.
[00:00:42.070]You'll learn about electronic medical records and billing
[00:00:45.720]by engaging in actual practice while you're here.
[00:00:50.210]This is April.
[00:00:51.043]She's our patient care associate,
[00:00:52.690]and she takes care of everybody on the front lines
[00:00:55.060]as they come in the building,
[00:00:56.580]being sure they get registered,
[00:00:58.090]getting their insurance cards, and being sure
[00:00:59.890]that everybody is happy and healthy
[00:01:01.740]while they're in the waiting room.
[00:01:03.580]Welcome to the HIPAA lab.
[00:01:04.770]This is where our students do their documentation.
[00:01:07.840]We use Centricity Practice Solution
[00:01:10.190]as our electronic medical record
[00:01:11.690]and all of our students become proficient
[00:01:13.630]in how to use electronic medical records
[00:01:16.240]to maintain client files.
[00:01:18.250]One of the big pieces of both education and healthcare
[00:01:21.650]is the need to keep people's privacy and for that reason,
[00:01:25.050]all documentation is done here in the HIPAA lab.
[00:01:26.973]This is the room we use for parent
[00:01:29.910]and undergraduate student observation
[00:01:32.990]as well for recording of our clinic rooms.
[00:01:35.790]All of our clinic rooms are equipped with camera equipment
[00:01:39.030]that will allow for remote observation,
[00:01:42.030]when allowed and when necessary,
[00:01:44.060]as well as the ability to record,
[00:01:45.830]so come on back here and you can see.
[00:01:47.890]We have two computers
[00:01:50.780]dedicated to recording from our rooms,
[00:01:53.550]and so when you want to record what your session,
[00:01:57.560]you can come here and go ahead and record
[00:02:00.240]and put it up on our HIPAA secure server.
[00:02:03.240]Well, here we are in one of our clinic rooms.
[00:02:05.450]We have 17 clinic rooms total in our clinic
[00:02:08.460]and there are times of day when all 17 are full.
[00:02:11.600]We typically will have about 80-patient visits a week
[00:02:15.080]in the speech clinic,
[00:02:16.450]and our students typically will have an average
[00:02:19.890]of between 450 and 500 hours upon graduation.
[00:02:24.520]That is without undergraduate hours
[00:02:26.320]and without observation hours included,
[00:02:28.440]so the totals are actually much higher.
[00:02:30.830]This particular room is one of our larger rooms,
[00:02:33.380]and we use this room primarily for assessments
[00:02:36.500]but also for some treatments with individuals
[00:02:38.710]who need more space.
[00:02:41.130]Here we have one of our preschool pediatric therapy rooms.
[00:02:45.380]We have several of these rooms that we use
[00:02:47.210]for individual treatment.
[00:02:48.750]This room is equipped with both camera equipments
[00:02:51.690]and a two-way mirror so that parents and supervisors
[00:02:55.980]can observe through the glass if they decide to do so.
[00:02:58.890]If you come this way with me, I'll show you an example.
[00:03:10.700]of one of the adult clinic rooms.
[00:03:14.700]This is one of our very busiest rooms
[00:03:16.550]at the Barkley Center.
[00:03:17.383]This is our adult group room.
[00:03:19.390]This room was created to make a more home-like environment
[00:03:24.530]for patients while they're here getting therapy.
[00:03:27.040]This room is also a smart room.
[00:03:29.500]That means it has artificial intelligence
[00:03:31.510]or AI as part of it.
[00:03:33.630]We have Google Home, we have Alexa,
[00:03:36.890]as well as Apple TV
[00:03:39.860]as different systems in this room,
[00:03:42.080]and we will soon have several pieces
[00:03:45.030]of home equipment
[00:03:47.590]that will be running through the use
[00:03:50.200]of artificial intelligence.
[00:03:53.160]This is our therapy kitchen.
[00:03:54.600]We use this space for our patients who might be learning
[00:03:57.540]to do activities of daily living or who are motivated
[00:04:00.810]by engaging in everyday activities.
[00:04:04.000]You can see here in the background,
[00:04:05.280]we've got our artificial intelligence bullet ready to go
[00:04:09.720]so that we can start to make smoothies with our voice.
[00:04:12.790]We're really excited about the new technology
[00:04:15.270]that we have here at the Barkley Center
[00:04:16.960]and we're very pleased to have a space like this
[00:04:19.910]so that our patients have the opportunity
[00:04:21.860]to engage in real activities of daily living.
[00:04:26.490]Welcome to the motor speech lab.
[00:04:27.950]This is where we work with individuals who have voice
[00:04:31.310]or other kinds of motor-speech difficulties.
[00:04:34.800]This room has VC Pitch, Nasometer, Erowen,
[00:04:38.980]and seat and pitch.
[00:04:40.380]We also have EEG equipment capabilities
[00:04:45.180]that are going to be here very, very soon
[00:04:47.470]and we're very excited about that.
[00:04:49.110]Here's another one of our spaces.
[00:04:51.220]This is a large preschool group room.
[00:04:54.330]We can see smaller children in this room
[00:04:57.580]and we can see them in small groups or individual.
[00:05:00.450]We would use this room if a client needed more space,
[00:05:03.930]or if we had more than one client we were seeing at a time.
[00:05:07.210]Welcome to the resource room area.
[00:05:08.980]This is where there are several materials available
[00:05:11.660]to students who are doing clinical work here
[00:05:13.770]at the Barkley Center.
[00:05:15.200]The first area that we're gonna look at
[00:05:17.020]is the checkout area.
[00:05:19.180]This is where you would come
[00:05:22.000]if you wanted to check out materials.
[00:05:23.730]Typically, there would be a student worker here,
[00:05:25.930]and they would have ready for you the materials
[00:05:28.530]that you'd asked them to pull.
[00:05:30.970]This room also contains all of our assessment materials
[00:05:33.920]that are available to our students.
[00:05:36.810]Next, we go across the hallway.
[00:05:38.780]This is where we keep all of our test protocols.
[00:05:47.020]Another area that we have in the resource room
[00:05:50.200]is the craft area.
[00:05:53.520]This room has available several craft materials,
[00:05:57.890]a laminator, as well as several low-tech AAC symbols
[00:06:02.930]that are commonly used in therapy with children
[00:06:06.440]who are young or adults who are not using speech
[00:06:09.590]as their means of communication.
[00:06:14.630]Lastly, I'm gonna take you to
[00:06:16.700]what I call the toy, "toybrary".
[00:06:19.840]This is where we have several small toys,
[00:06:22.990]as well as articulation cards, books,
[00:06:27.880]and computers that can be used
[00:06:30.140]for creating communication supports
[00:06:33.900]for clients that you're seeing as well as any kinds
[00:06:38.680]of handouts that patients need as part of their care.
[00:06:42.990]Welcome to the augmentative
[00:06:44.040]and alternative communication lab.
[00:06:46.130]In our laboratory, we have two eye-gaze systems,
[00:06:49.200]a head tracking system,
[00:06:50.580]and several touchscreen-dedicated devices, as well as iPads.
[00:06:55.280]Augmentative and alternative communication
[00:06:57.620]has been an emphasis at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln
[00:07:01.060]for over three decades.
[00:07:02.940]We are dedicated to helping individuals
[00:07:05.620]who are not using speech as their primary means
[00:07:07.890]of communication and helping them to develop
[00:07:10.960]the communication skills that they need
[00:07:12.910]to communicate with the world.
[00:07:14.870]To that end, we have a wide array of augmentative
[00:07:19.480]and alternative communication systems available
[00:07:22.470]for individuals to try and are always able
[00:07:25.860]to get more equipment in as needed
[00:07:28.640]by cooperative agreements with manufacturers.
