1 Selection and Implementation of an Electronic Medical Record Seminar 4004 Richard L. Wasserman, MD, PhD Clinical Professor of Pediatrics University of Texas Southwestern Medical School
2 Disclosures I use Meditab s IMS EMR/PM/Shot Module I used GE s Centricity Medical Office EMR/PM January, 1996 to November 2011
3 Educational Objectives Demonstrate that an office EMR is part of a workflow solution, not just documentation Explain how to plan for implementing EMR systems Illustrate how staged implementation of EMR increases the likelihood of success
4 My Background Early adopter Interested in functional utility of computers what can they do for me? Last programmed in Fortran on cards in 1969
5 You Can t Be Wrong For Long! The road to success is always under construction. Children learn quickly from video games that standing still will get you killed. Technology is NOT the goal.
6 The Decision Has Been Made Contract signed Determine the vendor s recommended implementation plan, contracted training hours Product chosen, contract not signed Discuss the vendor s recommended implementation plan, contracted training hours Speak to recently implemented customers
7 Understand That An EMR Is For Life It is very difficult to switch EMR systems a few years from now. Practices do not want to keep legacy systems around for a long time. With an EMR legacy system, they just might have to. EMR implementations can be long. Anyone that has been through one will tell you they do not want to do it again.
8 Join Your Vendor s User Group Others have gone before you leverage their experience Join at the earliest possible moment groups are very tolerant of newbies Benefits include Learning what to ask your vendor Problem solving outside the box Knowing when to give up
9 Goals of Implementing an EMR What Do You Want to Accomplish? Better documentation of office visits, SCIT, phone messages, refills Doctors see more patients, faster patient throughput, point of care decision support Coding support Decrease staff costs, eliminate dictation Facilitate research Federal Incentives Rank order what is important!
10 Customization If your system facilitates end user customization, have a staff member take the course PA, NP or senior RN Work with the vendor to establish style standards or learn the vendor s standards
11 Training You need a CIO even if you re solo (In which case it will probably be you!) a contact person Don t purchase too little training no matter how smart you and your staff are Plan post-implementation training Train trainers
12 Identify The Players Knowing the champions and anchors is absolutely critical Without the champion, no one will take ownership of the project. If the anchor is the managing partner or the senior partner, office manager or clinical supervisor, every day will be a challenge until they adapt to the system or leave. Depends on the number of doctors and number of staff Doctors Front office Back office
13 Lessons Learned Champions Being an early adopter is fun but has a price A Physician Champion is crucial Doesn t need to be a computer expert Does need expert support Does need to be accessible Anyone in the organization can request a change or enhancement with minimum effort the best ideas come from the users Does need to be able to delegate
14 Lessons Learned Anchors Anchors must be identified as early as possible Anchors must be floated or cut loose Because our system developed with the practice, anchors were avoided New staff spend one hour per day training on EMR during their orientation/training period
15 Physician Anchors Change phobic senior manager problem Can t/won t type Medical degree, specialty certification can t learn to type? Dictates because that is the way it has always been done Dictation is an anachronism Most of the advantages of EMR are lost MU, quality measures Voice recognition impedes progress
16 Physician Anchors Solutions Education Typing programs Dictation is an anachronism that should be minimized Most of the advantages of EMR are lost, no data structure Voice recognition impedes progress If your vendor pushed dictation to overcome resistance, ask for their help Scribes Monitor and report operational costs by physician
17 Staff Anchors During implementation Identify early Educate Clearly define expectations and monitor performance Staff Anchor solution - termination The only crucial employee is the doctor The more senior the staff anchor, the more disruptive After implementation Don t hire new anchors
18 Herb Herb is the computer department of our medium sized accounting firm Manages the networks of several small banks Supplies and manages the network and all the hardware Installs software and upgrades, troubleshoots rapid response Invaluable resource part of the family, holiday recognition
19 What Herb Has Taught Me A local IT partner is crucial if the doctor(s) in a small practice need to see patients to pay for the IT Redundancy is good Parts fail but the system can t be allowed to fail RESULT: No downtime due to hardware failure January 1996 to Fall, 2013
20 Plan for Support Hardware Workstations, network, internet and interfaced equipment will need to be installed and supported. Software These systems are complex. vendor will support their software EMR/PM updates may require interfaced modifications VARs (value added resellers) may offer comprehensive support Using one vendor has big advantages.
21 Hardware Network Do not under purchase, it will cost more in long run. Be sure it is expandable. Will your software be purchased or will you use an ASP (application service provider) model? Cloud storage? Hardwired vs wireless network Internet connectivity You will need it VPN DSL will be too slow, consider a T1 or T3 line Redundancy Backup system confirm restore
22 Implementation Planning Workflow analysis The vendor s plan Rapid implementation to reach payment goal Your practice The goal should be productivity and happiness, not paperless or speed of completion
23 Implementation Considerations What are you going to do with the old chart? How and when are you going to move financial records? How and when will you enter SCIT history and prescriptions?
24 Leaving Paper Behind You need a plan for your old records My recommendation: Doctors must participate Deal with old records as you see the patient Abstract the history, summarize and enter it into the EMR Enter key lab, x-ray or other results Scan the remainder of the chart in sections office visits, phone records, allergy testing, IT, lab
25 Develop a Project Plan Outline the scope of work and a timeline for implementation The more input you get the better Facilitating participation at every level will enhance buy-in Be flexible, revise often Find and hire Herb
26 Characterize Current Patient Flow Include pre-visit tasks scheduling, insurance and demographics Track where the patient goes in the office How many stops are there between sign in and check out? Where do your records travel? Who does what to the patient? History, VS, PE, med and allergy check, instructions and prescriptions Benchmark to compare efficiency before and after
27 Sample Workflow Sign in Demographics/Insurance/HIPAA F/U Questionnaire Hand Keyed Data Entry Rx/Instructions Longhand, Type, Dictation, Scribe Check in - VS Exam Room MD visit Check out PFT s Allergy Testing Other Procedures Appt desk What is the chart doing during this process?
28 Workflow Goals The provider does only what can t be done by someone else because only the provider generates income History patient entered Physical exam one button normals Assessment/Impression structured input of common data elements Plan expedited instructions to patients and staff Follow up Rx s and letters faxed or ed
29 Reengineering Workflow Examine each step and the people involved in the context of your goals for EMR Consider currently available and customizable electronic solutions Rank the importance of each solution Review your new EMR with the vendor to see what matches out of the box Do missing elements in the system require only minor adjustments or are they enhancement requests that need a work around for now?
30 Reengineer the Workflow with EMR Patient enters demographics, insurance, HIPAA F/U Questionnaire NO: Chart Pulls Missing info Dictation Rx writing Data Reentry Check in - VS Exam Room MD visit Check out Appt desk PFT s Allergy Testing Other Procedures
31 Initial Productivity Physician productivity will fall 20-33% for at least one month, maybe three months. Everyone must understand this. If the group is large, a few physician anchors can be accommodated with special arrangements. Scribes Dictation Physicians requiring accommodation should bear the financial burden
32 The Perfect EMR Do not expect this Everyone s definition will be different No system can meet 100% of anyone s goals Recognize the difference between being productive and being 100% electronic Don t sacrifice the good on the alter of the perfect!
33 All or Nothing Is a Losing Proposition Meeting one or two goals is better than none Accept the incremental benefits Waiting for the next upgrade or the next release delays all benefits Transferring 30% of incoming phone calls to web communications is better than 0% Adapted from Rosemarie Nelson, 2005 AAAAI Practice Management Symposium
34 Where Is the Workstation? Using a computer in the exam room changes workflow Improves/hinders patient relationship No dictation Doctor moves faster Communication with staff is asynchronous Improves efficiency Separates the doctor and the staff and may hurt morale Consequences Dictation for visits and letters eliminated See more patients per session Patients get more face time and teaching We struggle to give staff the contact with the doctors that boosts morale
35 Physician In The Exam Room Fixed workstation Wired or wireless Easiest documentation Tablet Wireless Software optimized for touch Versatile To mouse or not to mouse? ipad or similar Depends on software Unlikely to be adequate
36 Interfaces and Integrations Make sure the interfaces and integrations you need are available. Separate claims from reality, talk to a user. Labs and hospitals may fund part or all of the development cost of the interface.
37 Document Management All letters and reports are scanned before going to the doctor Scanned documents are indexed and linked to the patient s record in the EMR by the scan queen The scanned document, in the EMR, is put on the doctor s desktop for review and signing Medical records from other sources should be culled and summarized before scanning
38 Paper Is Not Evil The Intake Sheet
39 Go Live Choose the slowest patient month of the year If possible, use the system for phone calls and prescriptions for at least a month so that people get comfortable Consider starting with follow up visits and procedures only Initial schedule reduced by 50% time of return to full schedule varies by doctor Each staff member and physician has a pad to note problems, questions and enhancement requests
40 Go Live The Transition Plan to have both paper and EMR for 1-3 months Preload diagnoses, medications, and allergies the week before the patient visit Ideally, the doctor will create a brief summary for each old record Do not print the EMR record and add it to the chart Treat the EMR as your primary record and the old chart as a supplement that will phase out
41 Workarounds Hidden functionality Alternative approach to the workflow Workaround Enhancement request
42 The Internet Is a Mixed Blessing Enhances patient communications Appointment requests Prescription refills Patient history Non-urgent medical questions Point of care information for physicians The temptation for staff to misuse internet access can not be overestimated
43 Conclusions EHR improves the quality of documentation EHR improves efficiency for most physicians EHR enhances workflow increasing patient thruput EHR can create distance between physicians and staff that can impair morale Physicians and staff want the EMR to think the way they do; there must be accommodation on both sides
44 EMR Can Drive you to distraction Decrease productivity Increase overhead Alienate colleagues and staff Improve your practice Enhance patient care and patient safety Increase revenue Decrease overhead What happens is up to you!
