  2. Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluation (OPPE) • Joint Commission requirement in place since 2008 • Requires hospitals to document data collection on credentialed staff on an ongoing basis rather then at the two year reappointment process • Allows hospitals to take steps to improve performance on a more timely basis

  3. Overview • History of the Joint Commission • Components of OPPE • UTMB system of data collection • Concerns about the future

  4. Ernest A. Codman, M.D. • “end results system” • Morbidity and mortality • Kicked off staff at MGH • End Result Hospital

  5. Joint Commission • 1913 American College of Surgeons • 1917 Minimum Standards for Hospitals • 89/692 passed • 1950 3,200 hospitals achieve approval • 1951 American College of Physicians, American Hospital Association, American Medical Association, and Canadian Medical Association join with the ACS to form the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospitals (JCAH)

  6. Joint Commission • 1965 SSA Act of 1965: hospitals accredited by JCAH are “deemed” to be in compliance with conditions for participation • 1987 JCAHO formed, publishes “Agenda for Change” • 1990’s sentinel event, pain assessment, performance measures

  7. Joint Commission • 2000’s National Patient Safety Goals, Universal Protocol, stroke center certification, certification programs for lung reduction surgery, LVAD, and COPD, etc. • 2006 Joint Commission – “helping health care organizations help patients”

  8. Joint Commission • Hospitals • Hospices • Home care agencies • Health care delivery networks • Long term care facilities • Ambulatory health care organizations • Mental health services organizations

  9. OPPE Clearly defined process that includes but is not limited to: 1. who is responsible for reviewing data 2. how often data are reviewed 3. process for using data to continue, limit, or revoke privileges 4. how data are to be incorporated into credentialing files

  10. Data All practitioners, not just those with performance issues 1. chart review 2. direct observation 3. monitoring of diagnostic and treatment techniques 4. evaluation of practitioner by others involved in the care of the patient

  11. Action • Practitioner performing well, no further action warranted • Focused evaluation • Revoking the privilege because it is no longer required • Suspending the privilege • Zero performance should trigger a focused review whenever the practitioner performs the privilege • Privilege continues because the organization mission is to be able to provide the privilege to its patients

  12. Our Process at UTMB • Activity • Inpatient discharges • Outpatient visits • Procedures • Performance • Competencies • Not specifically mandated by Joint Commission

  13. Performance • Patient Care core measures • Medical Knowledge CME • PBLI QI participation • Communication patient services • Professionalism documentation • SBP medical records

  14. Concerns • Future clarification regarding more specific expectations • How will data be used • Inappropriate use of peer review protections • Core credentialing • Economic credentialing

  15. Value Proposition VALUE = QUALITY/COST
