1 Using Health Information Technology to Improve Quality of Care: Clinical Decision Support Vince Fonseca, MD, MPH Director of Medical Informatics Intellica Corporation
2 Objectives Describe the 5 health priorities for meaningful use of HIT Describe the 4 broad themes of the federal strategy for HIT
3 Federal Strategic Plan (FSP) for HIT
4 Federal Strategic Plan for HIT Intended to set an approach and priorities for moving forward, rather that identifying a complete set of actions that would facilitate widespread adoption and use of HIT. Describes strategies and HIT infrastructure that can serve as a foundation for developing programs that enhance quality of health care, population health, privacy and security protections, other values inherent in the vision
5 FSP for HIT draft vision for health system A learning health system that is patient centered and uses information to continuously improve health and health care of individuals and the population. focuses on the needs of individuals and population health to create a health system that is Patient centered, Safe, Timely, Effective, Efficient, Equitable. individuals can make informed decisions about their health and health care; patients can exercise choices about sharing of their data; decision makers have access to the right information at the right time in a secure environment; health delivery system is more efficient; and the health care industry continues to improve population health.
6 HIT supports realization of that vision of health system HIT provides a critical infrastructure tools that can expand current capabilities to collect and manage data to help create a sustainable system facilitates getting the right care to people when they need it captures the results for improvement in care, and create and share knowledge
7 Federal Strategic Plan for HIT 4 themes 3 establish the foundation and infrastructure to support a learning health system Meaningful Use of HIT, Policy and Technical Infrastructure, Privacy and Security, leveraging these resources to create a Learning Health System.
8 Meaningful Use of HIT Goal: Improve health outcomes, quality, patient safety, patient engagement, care coordination, and efficiency of the health care system through the adoption and meaningful use of health information technology. Principles Focus on health outcomes aligned with national health priorities set by national consensus groups. Use Federal policy levers and ARRA programs to develop meaningful use criteria that align the HIT adoption programs with national health priorities. Include patients and caregivers as primary participants in health information sharing. Balance achievability by a broad array of health care professionals with the urgency needed to stimulate significant progress toward improved health and health care. Stage meaningful use criteria to provide a glide path for phased implementation that avoids dead ends. Prioritize use of resources to provide support to areas and providers that have the greatest need.
9 Policy and Technical Infrastructure Goal: Enable management and secure exchange of electronic health information to meet goals in Theme 1 and 4 through the development and support of appropriate policies and technical specifications. Principles Policies and technical specifications required and/or promoted by the Federal government should allow providers to achieve meaningful use of HIT. The Federal government should leverage market innovation in information and communications technologies to foster appropriate health information exchange. Effective health information exchange should enable all participants, including patients, in the exchange to contribute toward achieving meaningful use. Policies and technical specifications should be kept as simple as possible and be designed for implementation by all participants. Policies and technical specifications should make possible and promote increased patient engagement and access.
10 Privacy and Security Goal: Build public trust and participation in HIT and electronic health information exchange by incorporating effective privacy and security solutions in every phase of its development, adoption, and use. Principles Privacy and security solutions should be consistent with the Nationwide Privacy and Security Framework for Electronic Exchange of Individually Identifiable Health Information. Individual Access Correction Openness and Transparency Individual Choice Collection, Use, and Disclosure Limitation Data Quality and Integrity Safeguards Accountability Solutions should enhance privacy and security while facilitating the appropriate access, use and exchange of health information to achieve health outcomes. Privacy and security solutions should be flexible to adapt to evolving technical capabilities over time
11 Learning Health System Goal: Transform the current health care delivery system into a high performance learning system by leveraging health information and technology. Principles Health information should be used to facilitate rapid learning and innovation in diagnosis, treatment, and decision making to improve health outcomes and to enhance health system value. HIT should help engage patients and providers to take active roles in creation and application of evidencebased care.
12 Meaningful use health priorities Improve quality, safety, & efficiency Engage patients & their families Improve care coordination Improve population and public health; reduce disparities Ensure privacy and security protections
13 Timeline Within each of the above goals are care goals, objectives, and measures for three time periods, each with advancing levels of functionality: 2011 Electronically capture in coded format and to report health information and to use that information to track key clinical conditions 2013 Guide and support care processes and care coordination 2015 Achieve and improve performance and support care processes and on key health system outcomes
14 EHR incentives EHR Incentive Program Stage 1 Meaningful Use consists of 25 measures; 17 metrics will require attestation by the provider, while eight will require information being submitted by the provider. Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE) required in Stage 1 (10% hospitals; 80% for eligible providers) Robust clinical quality measures for eligible professionals (EPs) and hospitals are delineated. Requires patients be provided with an electronic copy of test results, problem lists, medication lists and discharge summary upon request. Hospitals can participate in both Medicare and Medicaid incentives, if eligible by volume. Hospitals and EPs must implement five clinical decision support rules relevant to clinical quality metrics. Hospitals and EPs able to use an attestation methodology to submit summary information to CMS in Expect a formalized process from HHS by 2012.Hospitals and EPs have a 90 day minimum reporting period in the first year to qualify as a meaningful user. Subsequent years require full year reporting
15 Clinical Data Repository store, retrieve, and manage medications and laboratory and radiology results. Clinical Documentation provide appropriate referrals, problem list, current medication list. Clinical Decision Support implement drug drug, drug allergy, and drug formulary checks. CPOE required in the areas of medications, laboratories, radiology/imaging, and provider referrals. Requires electronic generation and transmission of permissible prescriptions. Financial Information Systems ability to check insurance eligibility and submit claims electronically. Patient Communication ability to electronically generate reminders, provide test results, problem lists, and immunizations.
16 Clinical Data Repository store, retrieve, and management laboratory and radiology results. Clinical Documentation nursing and physician in the areas of discharge, transfer, care coordination, problem list, demographic capture, vital signs and BMI, smoking status (for patients 13 years and older); calculate and electronically display quality measure results. CPOE in the areas of medications, laboratories, radiology/imaging, blood bank, physical therapy, occupational therapy, respiratory therapy, rehabilitation therapy, dialysis, provider consults, and discharge/transfer. Medication administration for alerts at the point of care to accomplish real time drug drug, drug allergy, and drug formulary checks, and to maintain an active medication list. Clinical Decision Support implement the five automated, clinical rules. Financial Information Systems ability to check insurance eligibility and electronically submit claims. Patient Communication create an electronic copy of a patient s clinical information upon request. Provide copy of discharge instructions and procedures at time of discharge, upon request.
17 What is Quality? Quality of care is the degree to which services for individuals or populations increase the likelihood of desired health outcomes and are consistent with current professional knowledge. Institute of Medicine, 1990 Quality is doing the right thing and doing it right.
18 Clinical Decision Support (CDS) CDS is defined as providing clinicians or patients with clinical knowledge and intelligently filtered patient information to enhance patient care. CDS delivers information highly relevant to the current situation, and presented for the most effective use. CDS includes: alerts and reminders, clinical guidelines, order sets, patient data reports and dashboards, documentation templates, diagnostic support, reference information delivered, and other tools to support decisions within clinical workflow. Source: HIMSS Clinical Decision Support (CDS) Fact Sheet, 2009
19 CDS in Meaningful Use Criteria 5 CDS rules relevant to specialty or high clinical priority, along with the ability to track compliance with those rules. 5 rules that EP or eligible hospitals must be focused on the quality metrics as described: Proposed Clinical Quality Measures 1) all core measures that apply to their patients preventive care and screening regarding tobacco use; blood pressure measurement; drugs to be avoided in the elderly 2) a subset of clinical measures (see Tables 5 19 in the regulation) that are most appropriate given the physician s specialty. There are a total number of 93 proposed quality measures (90 clinical measures and 3 core measures) and several of the 90 clinical measures are used in multiple specialty groups. The specialty groups, and number of measures that comprise each, Cardiology (10); Pulmonology (8); Endocrinology (9); Oncology (6); Neurology (5); Proceduralist/Surgery (6); Ophthalmology (3); Primary Care Physicians (29); Pediatrics (9); Obstetrics and Gynecology (9); Psychiatry (6); Radiology (7); Podiatry (3)
