7 Hospital Perspectives on Adoption Is there any doubt about the benefits of technology?
8 New Orleans 2005 Hurricane Katrina: Pre-EHR
9 New Orleans Hurricane Katrina: Pre-EHR Many New Orleans residents lost their paper medical records in one of the worst Hurricanes in history. Not only do patients not have their medical history but neither do their physicians or hospital.
10 Joplin 2011 Tornado: Post EMR
11 Joplin Tornado: Post EMR The Joplin tornado proved once again the resilience afforded by hospitals and providers transitioning from paper to EMRs. Within six days the hospital was functioning in a temporary facility with access to their medical records.
12 Adoption and Meaningful Use Meaningful Use is using certified EHR technology to: Improve quality, safety, efficiency, and reduce health disparities Engage patients and families in their health care Improve care coordination Improve population and public health All the while maintaining privacy and security
13 Meaningful Use Today EHR Incentive Program Active Hospital Registrations (March 2012) Hospital Totals 128 3,483 Medicare Only Medicaid Only 3 78 Medicare Medicaid 121 3,215
14 Meaningful Use Today Medicare Payments Through March 2012 Eligible Hospital # Hospitals Total Payment Subsection (d) 822 $ 1,550,727,46 Critical Access 89 $ 49,334,143 Total 911 $1,600,061,599 Medicaid Payments Through March 2012 Total Payments $ 3,064,069,772 Eligible Hospital # Hospitals Total Payment Acute Care (including CAHs) 1,718 $ 1,355,199,603 Children s 38 $ 108,808,570 Total 1,756 $ 1,464,008,173
15 Updated Stage 2 Timeline
16 Proposed Objectives/Measures EPs must meet or qualify for an exclusion to 17 core objectives and 3 of 5 menu objectives. Eligible hospitals and CAHs must meet or qualify for an exclusion to 16 core objectives and 2 of 4 menu objectives. Nearly all of the Stage 1 meaningful use core and menu objectives would be retained for Stage 2 meaningful use. The exchange of key clinical information core objective from Stage 1 would be re-evaluated in favor of a more robust transitions of care core objective in Stage 2. Provide patients with an electronic copy of their health information objective would be removed because it would be replaced by an electronic/online access core objective. Multiple Stage 1 objectives that would be combined into more unified Stage 2 objectives, with a subsequent rise in the measure threshold that providers must achieve for each objective that has been retained from Stage 1.
17 Proposed CQM Changes EPs, a set of clinical quality measures beginning in 2014 that align with existing quality programs such as measures used for the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), CMS Shared Savings Program, and National Council for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for medical home accreditation, as well as those proposed under Children s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) and under ACA Section For eligible hospitals and CAHs, the set of CQMs beginning in 2014 would align with the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting (HIQR) and the Joint Commission s hospital quality measures. EPs, eligible hospitals, and CAHs would submit CQM data electronically. Solicitation of public feedback to determine mechanisms for electronic CQM reporting. EPs to report 12 CQMs and eligible hospitals and CAHs to report 24 CQMs in total.
18 Proposed Payment Adjustments Payment adjustment would be determined by a prior reporting period, successful meaningful user in 2013 would avoid payment adjustment in Any Medicare provider that first meets meaningful use in 2014 would avoid the penalty if they are able to demonstrate meaningful use at least 3 months prior to the end of the calendar or fiscal year (respectively) and meet the registration and attestation requirement by July 1, 2014 (eligible hospitals) or October 1, 2014 (EPs). Three categories of exceptions based on the lack of availability of internet access or barriers to obtaining IT infrastructure, a time-limited exception for newly practicing EPs or new hospitals who would not otherwise be able to avoid payment adjustments, and unforeseen circumstances such as natural disasters that would be handled on a case-by-case basis. Solicitation of comments on a fourth category due to a combination of clinical features limiting a provider s interaction with patients and lack of control over the availability of Certified EHR technology at their practice locations.
19 Anticipated Changes Stage 1-2 Increase in the Health Information Exchange (HIE) requirement with a focus on infrastructure The addition of new measures (for example, 30% of electronic notes or 30% EMAR tracking) Patient portals will be required Increase in the percentage of CPOE requirements Increase hospital requirements to 24 critical quality measures (CQM s) The addition of several new measures such as identifying care team members & longitudinal care plans
20 Proposed Stage 2 Requirements that Could Affect Stage 1 Reporting (2014) Proposed measures required for Stage 2 but can be achieved/reported in the continuation of Stage 1 Changes to the denominator of computerized provider order entry (CPOE) Changes to the age limitations for vital signs Examples: Hospital A Attested to Stage 1 year one of 90 days of MU prior to Stage 2 Final Rule. Hospital A could elect to increase their CPOE Measure from its Stage 1 Requirement to the Stage 2 Requirement for Stage 1 Year two Hospital B has not yet Attested to Stage 1 year one of MU. They are live and plan to begin their MU 90 Reporting Period sometime after Stage 2 Final Rule is published. Hospital B could elect to increase their CPOE Measure from its Stage 1 Requirement to the Stage 2 Requirement
21 Proposed Rule Measures Not Effective Until Stage 2 Proposed measures not in effect until Stage 2 Elimination of the exchange of key clinical information core objective from Stage 1 in favor of a transitions of care core objective requiring electronic exchange of summary of care documents in Stage 2 Replacing provide patients with an electronic copy of their health information objective with a view online, download and transmit core objective.
22 Impact on Patient Care: Opportunities Improved patient safety and quality of care by focusing on the measures Better quality healthcare for an entire community due to the electronic sharing of personal health information (PHI) Patient portals allow patients to take a more active and knowledgeable role in their own healthcare
23 Impact on Patient Care: Challenges EHR Vendors may be overburdened due to continued support of facilities in Stage 1 MU and the requirement to support HIE The new measures may require EHR software upgrades which could lead to unanticipated technical issues Education requirements for new employees for the electronic documentation and processes in Stage 2
24 To Ensure Success An EHR team must be in place - do not leave this task to one individual Designate super-users for multiple (preferably every) departments Utilize as many official resources as possible Current recognized resources and tools will be identified and discussed Stay up-to-date on regulatory announcements/requirements-sign up for listserves and bookmark websites
25 To Ensure Success (cont. d) Use your designated Regional Extension Centers (RECs)- they are a free resource to you Network with and ask questions of your vendors, coworkers, colleagues, officials at CMS, ONC, Medicaid, State Reporting Office and Office of ehealth Foster an excellent working relationship with your vendor as an ongoing relationship will be necessary for upgrades, updates and ongoing training as requirements change
26 Best Practices for Adoption Better Preparation More than one quarter of hospitals (28 percent) reported to scanning all patient records. Scanning the Right Records Records managers can ease the EMR transition by prioritizing which records caregivers need first and most often for scanning. Better Resource Utilization Misuse of personnel can be the biggest drain on a scanning budget
27 Ways to Gain Efficiencies Do your EHR research and understand the government requirements Invest in training your staff and employ any free training opportunities Maintain a positive relationship and foster open communication with your vendor as the Stages and requirements of MU continue to evolve
28 Ways to Gain Efficiencies (cont. d) Centralize meetings to ensure all departments are using the technology, sharing best practices and identifying improvement opportunities Ensure the EHR will have the required interfaces to connect for HIE Create a culture that encourages and supports HIT adoption
29 Barriers to Adoption Exist According to HIMSS Analytics 2012 Leadership Survey: Adequate staffing (Most leaders reported an expected increase to HIT staff over the next year.) Competing priorities (ICD-10, Medicare Shared Savings Programs, ACO) Expense of software purchases and implementation (For the first time since EMR s were introduced in the marketplace, expense was NOT the main barrier.)
