Presentation Transcript

Planning meeting goals

  • Define specific goals for successful implementation

  • Define activities to achieve goals

  • Troubleshoot barriers to carrying out activities

  • Assign activities to achieve goals to team members

  • Identify timeline for completing activities

Consultants to process

  • Dr. Steve Shon, TDMHMR Medical Director

  • Dr. Ken Altshuler, TDMHMR Board of Directors & UTSMC Professor

  • Carole Matyas, ValueOptions V-P

  • Dr. Lynelle Yingling, DANSA Board Chair


“A step by step procedure for

solving a problem or

accomplishing some end.”

Webster’s Dictionary

Goals of medication guidelines algorithms

  • Systematic Approach to Medication Management

  • Quantifiable and Reliable Outcome Measures

  • Documentation of Medications and Outcomes

  • Enhance Medication Adherence by Patients

Clinical reasons for algorithms
Clinical Reasons for Algorithms

  • Facilitate clinical decision-making

  • Improve quality of care

  • Make treatment plans consistent across sites and physicians

  • Tailor treatment to individuals

  • Provide adequate clinical documentation

  • Define where new medications fit for optimal outcomes

Administrative reasons for algorithms
Administrative Reasonsfor Algorithms

  • Accountability for scarce resources

  • Uniform expectations for providers

  • Improve cost efficiency

  • Predictable costs

  • Define where new medications are cost- effective

  • Define costs related to specific treatments or outcomes

Medication algorithms
Medication Algorithms

  • Three disorder groups

    • Major depressive disorders

    • Schizophrenia

    • Bipolar disorders

  • Strategies (identifying the what)

  • Tactics (identifying the how)

  • Specific guidelines

  • Planned revisions

Educational materials
Educational Materials

  • Patient objectives

    • Teaching patients disease management

    • Involving patients in treatment choices

    • Optimizing treatment benefits

  • Provider objectives

    • Optimizing treatment benefits

    • Teaching optimal medication use

    • Clarifying and documenting clinicaldecision-making

Goals for ns tmap implementation
Goals for NS TMAP Implementation Persons with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)

  • Develop a clear implementation plan

  • Begin changes with incorporating medical records used with TMAP by summer

  • Begin with computerized version

Activities to achieve goals
Activities to Achieve Goals Persons with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)

  • Initial workgroup [VO, Dr. Shon, Dr. Altshuler, DANSA ED + PAC] review TDMHMR implementation guides for appropriateness/adaptation

  • VO meet with Dr. Altshuler to plan electronic requirements

  • VO pilot with 1 or 2 providers to refine the process before full implementation

Barriers how to overcome

Startup cost Persons with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)

Ongoing cost of meds

Mental mindset

Training large number of private providers [1 day of training initially]

Develop a uniform plan with a large number of providers

Possible software grant

Long-term reduced meds

Careful planning

Possibly minimize time required by using teleconferencing

Pilot first & streamline

Barriers & How To Overcome

Assignment of specific tasks

Share implementation guides with initial workgroup for review & possible modification

Meet to plan electronic requirements
