1 Real- time Performance Improvement for Patient Safety one two Introduction Real- time Value Proposition three Patient Safety Indicators four five six Point- of- care Alerts & Advice Documentation Improvement Feature Pipeline Introduction In the interest of promoting high- quality, patient- centered care and accountability, publicly reported process and outcome measures for a prioritized list of conditions in both in- patient and out- patient care settings can be implemented in real- time using newly available NLP- based technology integrated with the EHR. Monitoring these measures and the interventions that address them will assist health systems in their quality improvement efforts. In addition, Patient Safety Indicators (PSIs) are a set of indicators measuring hospital complications and adverse events following surgeries, procedures, and childbirth that can also be used to guide a comprehensive strategy to address early iatrogenic conditions before they become serious.

2 Real- time Value Proposition In collaboration with its health system clients, Hiteks Real- Time Solutions are designed to enable clinical and Performance Improvement functions to optimize their ability to access reconciled structured and unstructured information in the digital chart without having to comb through every record or Note manually. Hiteks Real- Time Scribe (shown below) powers Epic s NoteReader module to create reconciled information within physician workflow. Hiteks Real- Time Quality addresses the need for meaningful and timely interventions by automated point- of- care alerting. The EHR by itself provides a clinical database repository and transactional workflow for a health system, but requires an additional sophisticated solution for real- time intervention to improve clinical operations by constant monitoring of key data across the entire patient's record and prompting, or alerting the care givers of pertinent combinations of clinical data entered anywhere in the chart from any documenting clinician. The computer's main role in monitoring for better quality care is to keep track of numerous data elements (i.e. vital signs, symptoms, presumptive diagnoses, medications) that enter the longitudinal patient chart by multiple providers seeing the same patient. Quality improvement rules are designed into the system that can be tested to ensure a high relevance to decision- making that is overseen by groups in both Clinical and Performance Improvement functions yet doesn't miss important cases. Real- time alerts or advice are available to be routed to an inbox, SMS to a phone or directly in the User Interface of an EHR that has conducted the bi- directional technical integration with a real- time NLP engine. Natural Language Documentation 1 Patient / Doctor Visit 2 takes place (dictation or typing) 3 Real-Time Scribe 4 Hiteks extracts relevant facts and populates the EHR s lists Clinical Note Problems Rx Allergies Structured EHR

3 Patient Safety Indicators Motivated by payer and regulator reporting requirements for process and outcomes- based measures, Patient Safety Indicators such as the following allow an organization to focus on important iatrogenic conditions which can be addressed by timely intervention: shown that at least 25% of physician time is spent responding to reimbursement coding and quality queries. With the advent of new coding systems like ICD10 and outcomes- based reporting measures, this time is expected to increase unless software- enabled solutions are implemented. Relative Time Spent in Various Areas of Physician Workflow 1. CVP- site infection 2. Sepsis 3. Un- diagnosed acute myocardial infarction 4. Early congestive heart failure 5. Venous Thrombo- Embolism prevention 6. Accidental Laceration 7 Practice Administration Responding to Reimbursement Coding and Quality Queries Continued Medical Education C.M.E. Data sources which require consideration include both structured lists (Problems, Medications, Allergies) and unstructured Notes, lab reports, nurse charting. Once the right elements are identified, a set of tools for the computer can be used to design known rules and experiment with finding the impact of new logic to facilitate the identification of combinations of clinical elements which may indicate the need for intervention. Patient Care Point of Care Alerts & Advice Alerts and other prompts for appropriate documentation of the clinical visit at the point- of- care can reduce physician post- visit consultation time. In a test cohort examining the time spent responding to HIM Department queries to a physician s inbox or task- list, the length of time required for a physician to respond was reduced by 90%, from an average of 24 hours prior to Hiteks alerts to 2.4 hours annually. Besides the Point- of- care access: Studies of thousands of monetized value of the time saved per physicians and their use of digital patient physician and the impact on the higher records analyzed with Hiteks' solutions have

4 reimbursement from a shorter coding cycle turnaround time, addressing the more complicated and time- consuming quality measures can be accomplished with the same resource model. Our studies have also analyzed the ICD10 impact on physician time spent answering HIM queries. Once ICD10 goes into production as a reporting requirement, it will increase the amount of queries from an average of 20% of patient charts having at least one query to over 60% having at least one. Double data entry required using multiple screens This increase means that a more efficient workflow- based solution will be needed to answer queries more efficiently and also reduce queries by bringing real- time guidance to the physician for appropriate medical necessity documentation to reduce the total query burden. Prior authorization & medical necessity queries need additional data Physician challenges at the point of documentation Constant checking required to improve safety and outcomes Documentation Improvement Another important area of innovation is the ability to analyze the patient record in real- time, point- of- care advice keyed to patient problems and with a single click update the EHR with the recommended documentation. Improved documentation as a result of this process justifies claims codes and process and outcomes- based measures produced and sent to payers. The seamless integration of a Real- time NLP- based Solution Suite optimizes the EHR s ability to document appropriate terms and facilitates easier communication between the EHR and other applications through interfaces in real- time. Here are several areas which benefit from this real- time NLP & analytics process:

5 Feature Pipeline The timing of these 4 areas of real- time features is as follows: Real- time Feature Description of the Benefits Timing Reduced physician time spent documenting; Problem and Medication List management increase quality of care Real- Time Scribe: Auto- population and reconciliation of Meaningful Use fields: Problems, Allergies and Medications Real- Time Quality: Core Measures Clinical Documentation Improvement Querying Real- Time Coding: Outcomes- based Measures, Risk Scores and Operational Data Abstraction and Clinical Clarifications for Stroke, Venous Thrombo- Embolism, AMI and Sepsis are quickly identified and reviewed by Quality Improvement Specialists Accurate codification of patients severity of illness is crucial to reimbursement levels, so clarification of the condition can be made by the documenting physician with both real- time prompts and retrospective analysis; Results are also rolled- up to the population- level for HCC Scores, Working DRGs, etc. Currently available as an integrated solution in EpicCare 2014 and later versions Currently available as a standalone application but integration occuring with Meditech and Epic December 2015 Hiteks works with each of its health system clients to optimize and configure these Solutions with the EHR Hiteks enables physicians to seamlessly document the complete patient story in their own language and workflow while simultaneously extracting the key clinical data required to meet broader regulatory mandates such as Meaningful Use, Medication Reconciliation, HEDIS, HCC, etc. To help health systems streamline structured data capture from the physician narrative, Hiteks integration with the EHR automatically highlights the important terms, pre- populates them into the structured lists of the chart, and reconciles them with existing data in the patient s longitudinal record, all within a single screen so that the physician can review and approve all changes with minimal clicking and use of dropdown menus and pick- lists.

6 As described in this White Paper, Hiteks also In summary, Hiteks Solutions extract clinical draws attention to quality measures such as facts and run them through a knowledge Heart Failure, where the proper and timely base and language models, with the details management of these conditions requires presented to physicians for review and real- time clarification by the physician (see acceptance with advice for any additional Advice provided by the Real- Time Quality clarification. As a result, the physician is able advisor, above). to help the health system improve quality

7 without having to change their workflow. Hiteks works with the EHR to safeguard clinical data integrity, which positively impacts the subsequent coding, quality reporting processes (e.g. Patient Safety Indicators) and education through valuable alerts and prompts obtained through Hiteks experience tying HIM coding and Quality rules to the entire patient chart.
