2 I, Michael Guiry, DO NOT have a financial interest/arrangement or affiliation with one or more organizations that could be perceived as a real or apparent conflict of interest in the context of the subject of this presentation.
3 Overview How do we define patient status; inpatient vs. outpatient? Does shortening length of stay after PCI have an impact on patient safety and quality of care? What patients qualify for early discharge? How do we implement a same day PCI discharge program?
4 CMS Guidelines Inpatient vs Outpatient Inpatient care, rather than outpatient care, is required only if the patient s medical condition, safety, or health would otherwise be significantly and directly threatened if care was provided in less intensive setting. The physician or other practitioner responsible for patient s care at the hospital is also responsible for deciding whether the patient should be admitted as an inpatient. 3
5 Defining Outpatient vs. Inpatient Outpatient Duration of hospitalization is NOT the qualifier What s the 2 Midnight Rule? (i.e. less than 24 hours doesn t equate to OP) Defined: decision to admit as Inpatient Ambulatory Payment Classification (APC) code based on expected stay of at least 2-midnights Limits use of inpatient and observation stays Documentation (latter grew drives from the 3 decision in 2006 to 8% in 2011) Effective date delayed until March 2015 Inpatient Diagnostic Related Group (DRG) code Same-day (aka Day case ) Would by definition qualify as outpatient Discharge the same calendar day as the PCI
6 Shift from Inpatient to Outpatient 1. Elective admissions dropped during recession and have been slow to recover 2. Health reform pressure on hospital readmissions and avoidable admissions. 3. The growth of observation status. 4. Long-term continuing movement towards outpatient models of care 5. Shift toward fee-for-value away from fee-for-service 6. Growth of technology, particularly when it comes to imaging, surgery and anesthesia. 7. An ongoing birth rate decline.

8 Medicare RAC and ADR Audits on One Day Stay Encounters Purpose of ADR process Prevent improper payments before they are made Medicare started requesting prepayment documentation January 1, steps before final disposition (initial review, appeal, administrative law judge decision) If case is denied IP and not re-billed as ambulatory surgery within one year of DOS no opportunity to bill case Procedures being targeted Angioplasty, Uncomplicated stent placement Providers have 30 days to send additional documentation requests (ADR) If documentation not received within 30 days admission will be denied 7
9 Documentation for Inpatient Documentation Points to uphold an inpatient decision: Severity of the signs and symptoms exhibited by the patient Medical predictability of something adverse happening to the patient Complications during/after an amb surg procedure Treatment plan for a specific medical condition/ monitoring 8

12 Risks of PCI Death MI CVA Coronary dissection or perforation hours Arrhythmia of PCI Contrast reactions Renal Failure Vascular Complications Overall, PCI has become a lower risk procedure. Elective patients typically discharged within 24 Same Day PCI occurred as early as 1997 Kiemeneij et al. Outpatient coronary stent implantation. JACC 1997;29:323-7 Slagboom et al. Actual outpatient PTCA: OUTCLAS pilot study. CCI 2001;53: Ziakas et al. Safety of same day discharge radial PCI. Am Heart J 2003;146: Slagboom et al. Outpatient coronary angioplasty: feasible and safe. CCI 2005;64:421-7.
13 Same Day Discharge after PCI Why not? Possible reasons: Medical Legal Psycho-social/cultural Financial
14 Same Day Discharge after PCI Medical reasons: Cardiac complications Acute stent thrombosis Arrhythmia Vascular complications Access site bleedings Other vascular complications Other complications
15 Length of Stay In Patients Hospitalized With Acute Myocardial Infarction Worcester Heart Attack Study Saczynski, JS et al, Am J Med. 2010
16 Early Discharge After Primary PCI for STEMI Single-center analysis of 2,448 patients, 63% were released early (within 2 days of the procedure) vs. late (after 2 days). Conclusion: Discharge within 2 days is feasible and safe in almost two thirds of patients with STEMI receiving primary PCI. Noman A et al. European Heart Journal: Acute Cardiovascular Care 2013;
20 Same Day Discharge after PCI Legal reasons: Efficacy and safety of outpatient PCI has been demonstrated and described in a large series of publications from different groups in the past 15 years. (largely outside US) In several countries outpatient PCI has become clinical routine.
21 Same Day Discharge after PCI Psycho-social/cultural reasons: Dependent patients Elderly patients Insecure patients Preference for staying overnight
22 Same Day Discharge after PCI Financial: Inpatient Outpatient PCI Reimbursement $18,970 $12,000 Avg Total Costs $12, 500 $11,300 Outpatient PCI is reimbursed at 28-38% less than inpatient PCI Reimbursement is the same regardless of LOS for outpatient PCI Net Margin approximately $6,500 vs. $1,000 for IP vs OP, respectively On 250,000 PCI/year = $1.8 Billion decrease in revenue However, hospitals experience $600 Million in direct costs savings AND potential for increased revenue due to bed availability Heyde, GS et al.

33 Hurdles to clear prior to initiating Same Day Discharge Pre-Admission Post-Procedure Pre-Discharge Stakeholder Buy-In
34 Process Flow Map Expected: 50/month
35 Criteria for Hospital Admission post PCI
36 Pre-Admission Criteria The following is completed by the Physician/NP/PA in the pre-admission area and follows the patient through to discharge. MAJOR CRITERIA Acute Coronary Syndrome Clinical Heart Failure within 7 days Creatinine greater than 1.5 mg/dl, GFR less than 60 ml/min, Hemodialysis Inability to ambulate due to poor coordination, vasomotor instability, dizziness or suspected neurologic issues or events Need for therapeutic anticoagulation (i.e. Coumadin) Left Ventricular dysfunction (Ejection Fraction less than 30%) Antiplatelet or contrast allergy (uncontrolled) Prior stent thrombosis

40 Criteria for Admission INPATIENT Admission (1 MAJOR criteria / 2 or more MINOR criteria) Patient required an inpatient admission due to their co-morbid conditions and complex/high risk nature of their procedure and was considered to be at increased risk of major adverse cardiac and vascular events if discharged. Physician Signature: Date / / Time : AM / PM Ambulatory Encounter: SAME DAY DISCHARGE EXTENDED RECOVERY (Patient requires overnight recovery)
41 Pre-Discharge Flow Map
42 Pre-Discharge PRE-DISCHARGE YES NO RN Have post-pci ECG and labwork (CBC, BMP, CPK) been performed? Has the dedicated caregiver been involved in the discharge teaching and do you feel he/she understands instructions? Is the vascular access site without complication? Has the patient been ambulatory for 60 minutes? Was discharge teaching performed; including medication management, access site management and emergency management of complications post discharge?
43 Recommendations Start slow pilot with only a few operators Examine your own practice.. consider discharging lowest risk patients Develop a protocol which fits the culture of your institution Patients should feel comfortable going home; if they are not comfortable, keep them Patient should have supervision at home Geographically close to a medical center. Follow up phone call A way to close the loop. Ensure they have their DAPT
