6 Value-based purchasing Reduce preventable readmissions Reduce hospital acquired conditions Bundled payments Innovative care delivery models Electronic Health Records Foundation for Health Care Reform Increase health care value The goal Improve quality Reduce Costs Tactics Prerequisite Electronic health records 6

7 Accelerate Meaningful Use EHRs are considered a critical tool for advancing high quality patient centered care and are essential to practice transformation Achieving efficiencies in clinical practice and in quality requires using EHRs in a meaningful way MU is aligned with the national health care triple aim effort to improve patient care quality and satisfaction, increase population health, and reduce health care costs Maryland Medicaid administers the Medicaid EHR Incentive program in Maryland 7

8 State Incentives Maryland is the first State to build on the Medicare and Medicaid EHR adoption incentive programs requiring State-regulated payors to provide incentives for the adoption of EHRs State incentives are separate and independent of federal incentives; there are different eligibility and participation requirements for each program Current Legislation 2009 House Bill 706 Electronic Health Records Regulation and Reimbursement (HB 706) requires MHCC to establish regulation to require State-regulated payors (payors) to offer incentives to providers to promote the adoption of EHRs 2011 House Bill 736 Electronic Health Records Incentives for Health Care Providers Regulations (HB 736) further clarifies the incentive program established under HB 706 8

9 State Incentive Program - Key Provisions Eligibility primary care practices, including family, general, internal medicine, pediatrics, geriatrics, and gynecology Must adopt a certified EHR in order to qualify The six largest private payors required to provide incentives include: Aetna, CareFirst, Cigna, Coventry, Kaiser Permanente, and United Healthcare One time payment per payor per practice Incentive of up to $15,000 based on the practice s panel members, calculated at $25 per member 9

10 State Incentive Program Progress Over $8.3M to 370 primary care practices since October 2011 Participation has increased by about 14 percent since April 2013 The average number of applications that resulted in payments increased from 33 per month under the previous program to 43 per month under the revised program Source: Data reported by payors for period October 2011 March

11 EHR Adoption Among Office-based Physicians 70% 60% 50% 40% 30% 20% 10% 21.8% 27.9% 18.6% 23.8% 33.9% 33.4% 49.2% 39.6% 58.3% 48.1% 64.3% 54.0% EHR adoption among Maryland office-based physician has increased from 33.4 percent in 2011 (around the time the State incentive program went into effect) to 64.3 percent in % Maryland National Sources: Maryland Data Maryland Board of Physicians National Data National Center for Health Statistics National Data Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services EHR Incentive Program data, December

12 EHR Adoption Acute Care Hospitals 100% 90% 80% 77% 81% 89% 89% 89% 85% 96% 94% 100% 76% 97% 70% 60% 72% 59% 50% 44% 40% 30% 28% 20% 10% 9% 12% 16% 0% Hospitals in Maryland Hospitals Nationally - Certfied EHR Hospitals Nationally - Basic EHR Sources: Maryland Data Maryland Health Care Commission, Health Information Technology, An Assessment of Maryland Hospitals, October National Data Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), ONC Data Brief, Adoption of Electronic Health Record Systems among U.S. Non-Federal Acute Care Hospitals: , No. 23, April

14 HIE Evolving Technology Health care reform is driving evolving electronic HIE strategies Sharing of clinical data among organizations not previously exchanging data More robust clinical data and analytic needs More organizations entering the HIE market Exchange activities expanding geographically, including interstate exchange HIE privacy and security regulations need to keep pace with the changing landscape 14

15 Health Information Exchange The goal of HIE is to make health related information more accessibl across disparate health systems Benefits Streamlined practice processes: Tasks currently conducted manually requestin results and patient summaries, sending referrals and receiving reports, and sending prescriptions can be completed electronically Better communication: View a more complete patient record electronically, including hospital visits, lab work, medications Improved health outcomes: Up-to-date information on patients, which can result in reduced medical errors and improved quality of care, especially during transitions of care 15

16 HIE Considerations HIE can help get the right data to the right place at the right time To be effective, HIE needs to support and be integrated into workflows not compete with them HIE needs to be adopted by all health care providers to achieve maximum benefits HIE query portal is accessible through the Internet; providers do not need to have an EHR to access the system 16

17 The Development of the Statewide HIE Planning and legislative authority Two multi-stakeholder groups worked independently to identify best implementation strategy (May Feb. 2009) Legislative authority to designate a statewide HIE in May House Bill 706, Electronic Health Records Regulation and Reimbursement The Chesapeake Regional Information Systems for our Patients (CRISP) was competitively selected in August 2009 CRISP is a not-for-profit collaborative effort among the Johns Hopkins Health System, MedStar Health, University of Maryland Medical System, Erickson Retirement Communities, and Erickson Foundation, and more than two dozen major stakeholders across the state 17

18 Maryland s State-Designated HIE The Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP) All 47 acute care hospitals and two specialty hospitals are connected and provide admission, discharge, and transfer information Around 40 hospitals submit clinical data (e.g., labs, radiology, clinical documents) to the HIE infrastructure Two national laboratory and three radiology centers are connected and provide laboratory and radiology reports CRISP Services Query Portal: Gives providers access to prior hospital and medication records Direct Secure Messaging: Enables referrals and other care coordination Encounter Notification Service: Notifies providers in real time about patient visits to the hospital Prescription Drug Monitoring Program: Monitor the prescribing and dispensing of drugs that contain controlled dangerous substances 18

19 HIE Privacy and Security Legislative Authority 2011 law requires the MHCC to adopt regulations for the privacy and security of PHI exchanged through an HIE Regulations The HIE Policy Board, a staff advisory group, consisting of various stakeholders proposed policies for privacy and security Policies became the framework for the draft HIE regulations Final regulations, COMAR , adopted by MHCC went into effect in March

20 Regulation Section Summaries Key Areas Health care consumer rights concerning information accessed, used, or disclosed through an HIE Access, use, or disclosure of sensitive health information Requirements for accessing, using, or disclosing PHI through an HIE Auditing requirements Remedial actions to be taken by an HIE Notice of breach or violation Registration and enforcement 20

21 Requirements under the Existing Regulations The regulations require HIEs that operate in Maryland to register with MHCC and renew their registration annually Information collected as part of registration: Technical capabilities from HIEs Service areas and types of participating organizations Authentication and audit policies and procedures Consumer educational materials Audited financial statements National accreditation if achieved; however, not required 21

22 Registered HIEs 22

24 Telehealth A Statewide Perspective Fragmented adoption Acute care hospitals roughly 46 percent Physicians about 10 percent Minimal use About 50 providers submitted roughly 78 telemedicine claims to State-regulated payors from October 2012 June

25 Key Challenges to Telehealth Expansion Little incentive for practices to move away from the traditional fee-forservice (volume-based) business model Limited government reimbursement Medicare: About 60 evaluation and management services within certain rural areas of the State Medicaid: Restricted to two pilot programs Lack of widespread awareness about how to incorporate the effective use of telehealth into existing practice workflows Technology adoption, integration and capability 25

26 Telehealth Adoption Nationally: American Telemedicine Association estimates roughly 200 telehealth networks in the U.S.; connectivity to over 3,500 sites Roughly 28 percent of Maryland physicians that are using telehealth are primary care physicians, 10 percent are behavioral health, and approximately 62 percent other specialties Maryland health care organizations: Two emerging value-based reimbursement models in Maryland Retail health clinics: Included in pharmacies and supermarkets beginning to develop telemedicine programs 26

27 Reimbursement About 19 states have laws that require payors to compensate for telemedicine care Roughly 44 states have some method of telemedicine reimbursement for Medicaid 27

28 2014 Telemedicine Task Force Activities Develop recommendations to address telemedicine adoption challenges Identify strategies to deploy a statewide phased approach to diffuse telemedicine technology in innovative care delivery models Identify appropriate use cases that could be regionally deployed in the State Finalize the technical architecture of a telemedicine registry Propose solutions to key policy challenges for reducing barriers to adoption and meaningful use of telemedicine 28
