1 BEYOND MEANINGFUL USE The Business Case for Using Directed Exchange for Release of Information YOUR HIM EDGE WHITEPAPER

2 YOUR HIM EDGE Abstract. For the most part, prevailing healthcare data exchange discussion revolves around electronic medical records and their attestation for Meaningful Use Stage 2 (MU2). The primary impediment to secure data exchange is the lack of interoperability; and the primary impediment to interoperability is the lack of security. Directed exchange has been identified as a solution, and now is part of MU2 attestation. However, Direct also can transform the release of information (ROI) process, solving a host of business issues beyond MU2. The key to unlocking Direct s potential for ROI? Finding the right ROI provider. This white paper discusses both the forces impeding secure data exchange and the drivers compelling the need for it. It defines Direct exchange, suggests its potential for ROI, and offers criteria for choosing an ROI vendor. Finally, it presents an example of an effective Direct exchange ROI vendor, supported with a case study. WHITEPAPER 2

3 Introduction In 1999, Dr. Clem McDonald, health informatics pioneer and developer of one of the earliest electronic health records (EHRs), the Regenstrief Medical Record System, explained: Our goal was to solve three problems: (1) to eliminate the logistical problems of the paper records by making clinical data immediately available to authorized users wherever they are no more unavailable or undecipherable clinical records; (2) to reduce the work of clinical book keeping required to manage patients no more missed diagnoses when laboratory evidence shouts its existence, no more forgetting about required preventive care; (3) to make the informational gold in the medical record accessible to clinical, epidemiological, outcomes and management research. Although Regenstrief and other innovative healthcare organizations demonstrated that electronic health systems (EHRs) could improve care quality and efficiency, early EHRs had one critical limitation: detachment. Siloed systems unable to exchange data securely, they could neither support patients across transitions of care, perform longitudinal analyses of care, nor address public-health needs. This problem persists. 3

4 Secure healthcare data exchange is a growing challenge. The primary impediment to secure data exchange is the lack of interoperability; and the primary impediment to interoperability is the lack of security. Of the six dimensions of interoperability defined by the Integration and Interoperability Steering Committee of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), two uniform safeguarding of data security and integrity and uniform protection of patient confidentiality relate directly to security. Despite these impediments, there are two driving forces responsible for increasing demand for secure healthcare data exchange: 1. Meaningful Use stage 2 (MU2), which requires eligible professionals to exchange clinical summaries online in at least 10% of transitions of care, such as referrals to specialists and hospitals, and 2. Population health s new care and payment models such as accountable care organizations (ACOs) and patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs) that require physicians and other providers to exchange more information more often to improve care coordination. With MU2 deadlines looming, many healthcare providers are scrambling to meet its requirements to give patients access to health information and exchange patient data with other providers. They are being compelled to do so by ACOs and PCMHs via such new exchange entities as HIEs and Health Information Services Providers (HISPs). Increasingly, the one solution that makes it all possible is Direct exchange via the Direct Standard. 4

5 Direct exchange is a promising solution. Directed exchange is the outcome of the Direct Project, which the ONC initiated in 2010 to create a simple, secure, scalable, standards-based way for trusted entities to share protected health information (PHI) securely. It comprises healthcare-specific, Internet-based that uses the Direct standard and a public key infrastructure (PKI) to secure data transmission. Direct is as easy to use as regular , but it limits transmissions to trusted addresses only. Direct allows a sender to share PHI as long as the receiver has a recognized Direct address. Direct protocols keep information private and secure by: Assuring senders and receivers of each others identities Ensuring content is not modified in transit, and Giving complete control of PHI to the sender and receiver. Now a national standard, Direct messaging satisfies MU2 data transfer requirements. However, adoption may be overstated. Although 75 percent (101 out of 135) of respondents to an ehealth Initiative poll of health data exchange organizations admitted to using secure messaging in their data exchange models, Christina Galanis, executive director of Southern Tier HealthLink and a member of the panel of HIE executives that responded to the poll, suggests respondents were just looking to check off a box for Meaningful Use, rather than adopting more advanced uses of data-sharing. Designed to replace paper-based communications between healthcare providers, Direct can be used to exchange patient summaries securely between primary care physicians and specialists; send acute care discharge summaries to succeeding care givers; provide visit summaries and reminders to patients; transmit lab results to EHRs; and, increasingly, facilitate release of information. 5

6 For ROI, Direct exchange is transformative. In healthcare, release of information (ROI) is an important factor in continuity of care, as well as in billing, reporting, research, and other functions. ROI vendors and medical records departments were exchanging data long before EHRs and MU2, but it was all on paper. Even now, faxing is an essential form of response to ROI requests and remains one of the leading methods for distributing medical record information. Other methods include courier (for urgent requests) and the postal service. Despite even the strictest adherence to HIPAA requirements, security lapses are inevitable with faxed or mailed ROI documents. Unattended fax machines or printers create an opportunity for information exposure; mailed documents are not secure from the time they leave the sender until authorized personnel can handle and file them. Even then, they can be lost or misfiled. Because ROI data is clinical, there are obvious benefits to using Direct to exchange it. For example, Direct improves care coordination by enabling timely response to requests, proper assignment of patient data, and increased data accuracy and security. However, because the process of exchanging that data is operational, Direct exchange also addresses and solves several ROI-associated business challenges, including: Ensuring accurate accounting of disclosures by tracking PHI requests electronically from the point of release to the acquisition by the requestor, with non-repudiation Reducing administrative overhead and increasing referring physician satisfaction by streamlining provider status requests Maximizing staff productivity by reducing data entry errors and error corrections Reducing administrative costs by eliminating paper None of these are specific MU2 goals, but rather practical business problems that MU2 protocols like Direct can help solve. 6

7 The key to using Direct to address ROI business issues? Finding the right ROI vendor. Healthcare organizations can maximize the business impact of Direct by selecting an ROI vendor that can deliver against the broader business goals that go beyond MU2 compliance. Because of the high stakes and complexity involved, many organizations prefer to postpone decision-making or implement point solutions. Taking a more strategic approach is actually more efficient and generates results very quickly, as described in the HealthPoint Case Study included in this paper. With the right vendor, Directed exchange can: Improve operational outcomes by eliminating the inefficiency of paper, enhancing productivity and streamlining the entire ROI process Improve financial outcomes by replacing expensive fax workflows with less expensive workflows, eliminating the costs to copy, send and manage ROI documents and patient information, while optimizing allocation of expensive resources Increase provider satisfaction and referrals by responding quickly to status requests and reducing ROI turnaround time Increase patient satisfaction with easy PHI access and assured data privacy, increasing loyalty amid rising consumerism Boost productivity by reducing staff time spent fielding status requests and dealing with the consequences of data entry errors The key to selecting the right vendor is asking the right questions. Following are three questions that should be part of your Direct/ROI RFP: 1. Is the ROI vendor a certified HISP? HISPs serve as intermediaries, using the Direct standard to manage the security and exchange of health information among healthcare entities or individuals. 2. Is the ROI vendor fully certified, audited and accredited? ONC/ATCB: Only solutions certified for MU2 facilitate the attestation necessary to benefit from increased payments in the early years of MU, and avoid penalties later. Partnering with an MU2-certified ROI vendor delivers business value that an EHR which is designed for clinical processes cannot. The business side of post-discharge content exchange, governance of the record and distribution of health information to community physicians is the responsibility of the medical records department and its ROI vendor partners. Partnering with an MU2-certified ROI vendor delivers business value that an EHR which is designed for clinical processes cannot. 7

8 EHNAC DTAAP and Direct Trust.org membership: EHNAC (Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission) develops data exchange standards and accredits compliant organizations via its DTAAP (Direct Trusted Agent Accreditation Program). ENHAC established DTAAP to certify organizations as Health Information Service Providers (HISPs), able to exchange Direct Secure Messages (DSM). DirectTrust.org, an independent non-profit trade organization formed by members of the Direct Project, established and maintains a national Security and Trust Framework in support of Directed exchange. Members are held accountable to a common set of security and trust best practices. When providers and organizations use intermediaries (i.e., HISPs, Certificate Authorities (CAs), and Registration Authorities (RAs) that are not accredited, there s no way for them to know if their PHI is going to another provider/organization directly, or to the provider s/ organization s HISP, which would have multiple receivers/senders with a guarantee of delivery to the intended recipient. N Squared N 4 N 4 When N is large, # Interfaces ~ N 2 # Interfaces = N DTAAP is a universal accreditation framework sponsored by DirectTrust. Without DTAAP, providers/organizations that don t use the same HISP must sign detailed security agreements with each other. For example, if Provider A uses HISP1 to send PHI to Provider B, which uses HISP2, before the HISPs can exchange the PHI, Provider A and Provider B must sign a detailed business associate agreement (BAA). Signing BAAs with every HISP or every organization using a HISP quickly triggers the N-squared problem. Five organizations exchanging PHI among themselves, would need 25 BAAs; six would need 36 agreements. DirectTrust-EHNAC accreditation establishes Scalable Trust, an environment that allows HISPs to trust each other by virtue of their accreditation by DirectTrust, and therefore avoid the N-squared problem. 8

9 SOC 2 Type II Audits: Service Organization Controls (SOC) is a collection of control objectives an organization creates to ensure security, confidentiality and processing integrity in its business. CPA firms certified to conduct controls audits provide third-party verification that the controls are effective and in use. 3. Is the ROI vendor ehealth Exchange Validated? ehealth Exchange is a group of federal agencies and non-federal organizations working to improve patient care, streamline disability benefit claims, and improve public health reporting through secure, trusted, and interoperable health information exchange.. Their product testing and validation program evaluates systems conformity to performance specifications, adherence to standards and ability to interoperate with other systems without error or further customization. Solutions that pass rigorous conformance tests receive the ehealth Exchange Validated designation. For organizations that implement these solutions, onboarding to the Exchange will require less time, effort and cost. Asking these questions up front will give you the answers you need to evaluate how well, and in what timeframe, an ROI vendor can meet your MU2 and ROI needs. CASE STUDY: HealthPoint - Leveraging the investment, not checking the box HealthPoint is a community-based, community-supported and community-governed network of non-profit health centers dedicated to providing expert, high-quality care to all who need it, regardless of circumstances. Founded in 1971, we believe that the quality of your health care should not depend on how much money you make, what language you speak or what your health is. Because everyone deserves great care, said Michelle Matt, HealthPoint Community Health Center Health Information Manager (HIM) and HIPAA Privacy Officer. Over the past four decades, we ve continually reinvested in new facilities, expanded services and recruited expert providers to enhance quality of care. Today, we have multiple locations offering a broad array of services, all connected by a state-of-the-art electronic medical record. Our innovative care model redefines the boundaries of traditional health care by bringing together all the services someone needs to be healthy in one place. Patients benefit from a coordinated system that includes medical care, dental care, naturopathic medicine, behavioral health care, social services, and case management. Even the pharmacy is on-site. Providing care to more than 78,000 patients has always been our primary focus and being able to do this and contain administrative costs at the same time is important. We submit requests for patient information monthly and right now each one is processed manually. It is an onerous, time consuming, expensive process because it is 100% paper-based. 9

10 To increase administrative efficiencies and heighten care coordination for its patient population, HealthPoint is implementing IOD s PRISM Connect Provider, an interoperable, HIPAA-compliant tool for securely and efficiently exchanging protected healthcare information, to centralize HIM for its 13 clinics. To implement the solution, the site s representative navigates to the provided URL, and is guided through an online registration process. Once identified at Level 3 of Assurance (LOA3), the user is granted a login that he/she can use to begin submitting and receiving requests electronically. The implementation of new technology can sometimes be intimidating or require resources that are not always available, noted Matt. However, for an individual site, getting started with this solution is simple and can be done in a matter of minutes without IT support or a project team. Prior to implementation, average turn-around time (TAT) of all continuity care requests was 3.5 days from initial request to delivery. Some of the extended TAT stemmed from mishandling of fax requests. Human error led to phone call follow-up for requests, which wasted valuable resources. Following the implementation, average TAT of all continuity care requests for the sites participating in the pilot of PRISM Connect Provider using Direct Secure Messaging reduced to just over one hour. A key factor was error rate, which can cause as much as a five-fold increase in TAT. Reducing the error rate played a significant part in HealthPoint s radical TAT improvement. By using PRISM Connect to improve the current paper-driven process, my team and I are projecting improved efficiencies and faster TAT in requesting and receiving records back, said Matt. Getting started with this solution is simple and can be done in a matter of minutes without IT support or a project team. Michelle Matt, HealthPoint Community Health Center Health Information Manager (HIM) and HIPAA Privacy Officer PRISM Connect from IOD With more than 30 years experience in modernizing health information management, IOD offers a unifying technology-driven solution set that connects the traditionally separate functions of ROI, coding, audit management and denial management, among others. IOD s PRISM platform is an ehealth Exchange Validated Product, and IOD is accredited by several organizations including EHNAC/DirectTrust as a HISP, CA (Certificate Authority) and RA (Registration Authority). IOD s PRISM Connect for Providers technology solution incorporates security, community connectivity and tracking to scale seamlessly to support both current and future needs. PRISM Connect for Providers uses Direct secure messaging to transmit ROI data in an encrypted to ensure the correct receiver gets the correct information for the correct patient. It then attaches the information to the correct EHR, giving providers a simple, secure and affordable way to access data critical to providing comprehensive, informed care. 10

11 Beyond MU2: A new solution for the new world of ROI The ROI arena is changing, as emerging ACO models, the imminent arrival of MU3 and new requirements from such federal trading partners as the Social Security Administration and Veterans Administration increase demand for secure, electronic data distribution and sharing. From patient portals and the Internet of things to ubiquitous interoperability and seamless electronic information exchange, advances in technology have and will continue to alter drastically many traditional HIM functions. For ROI, Direct exchange is a harbinger of change, and clear evidence of HIM s evolution from library science to health information governance. 1 Tripathi, Micky.
