    1. Back to Basics, 2012POPULATION HEALTH :Health Care Organization

      Presented by Doug Coyle Epidemiology & Community Medicine
    2. MCC Objectives: Population health 78-4 Administration of effective health programs at the population level Rationale: Knowing the organization of the health care and public health systems in Canada as well as how to determine the most cost-effective interventions are becoming key elements of clinical practice. Physicians also must work well in multidisciplinary teams within the current system in order to achieve the maximum health benefit for all patients and residents.
    3. MCC Objectives: Population health 78-4 Administration of effective health programs at the population level Terminal objectives: Know and understand the pertinent history, structure and operations of the Canadian health care system. Be familiar with economic evaluations such as cost-benefit / cost effectiveness analyses as well as issues involved with resource allocation. Describe the approaches to assessing quality of care and methods of quality improvement.
    4. MCC Objectives: Population health 78-4 Administration of effective health programs at the population level Enabling objectives (1) Describe at a basic level: methods of regulation of the health professions and health care institutions; supply, distribution and projections of health human resources; health resource allocation; organization of the Public Health system; and the role of complementary delivery systems such as voluntary organizations and community health centres. Describe the role of regulated and non-regulated health care providers and demonstrate how to work effectively with them. Outline the principles of and approaches to cost containment and economic evaluation. Describe the main functions of public health related to population health assessment, health surveillance, disease and injury prevention, health promotion and health protection. Demonstrate an understanding of ethical issues involved in resource allocation.
    5. MCC Objectives: Population health 78-4 Administration of effective health programs at the population level Enabling objectives (2) Define the concepts of efficacy, effectiveness, efficiency, coverage and compliance and discuss their relationship to the overall effectiveness of a population health program. Be able to recognize the need to adjust programs in order to meet the needs of special populations such as new immigrants or persons at increased risk. Participate effectively in and with health organizations, ranging from individual clinical practices to provincial organizations, exerting a positive influence on clinical practice and policy-making. Define quality improvement and related terms: quality assurance, quality control, continuous quality improvement, quality management, total quality management; audit. Describe and understand the multiple dimensions of quality in health care, i.e. what can and should be improved.
    6. What Will We Cover? Organization of Health Care Delivery in Canada Elements of Health Economics
    7. Historical Progression in the Organization of Health Care
    8. Events Post 1984 2001: Kirby & Romanow commissions Attempts to reform the health care system Focus on long term sustainability 2005: Chaoulli decision (Quebec) Controversial interpretation of the CHA in regards to banning of private clinics. 2012 Drummond report (Ontario) Emphasis on home care
    9. Canada Health Act Principles
    10. Problems with the Canada Health Act Only partial coverage Physician services in and out of hospital only What is “medically necessary” Only those “provided by hospitals” Not all hospitals must provide all services Does not legislate which services must be provided Only that federal government will not provide funding if conditions not met Impact of other legislation Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom
    11. Ways of organizing a system Publicly financed and provided UK (?), Scandinavia Insurance based system for all Tax based - Canada Compulsory premiums - Japan Insurance based system for some US Wouldn’t meet requirements of Canada Health Act Purely private Mainly underdeveloped countries Wouldn’t meet requirements of Canada Health Act
    12. Some Data 2010: total health care expenditures were $5,614/person or about $192billion, 11.7% of GDP down from 2009 (SIM web link) 70% from public sector (45% in the USA) 29% spent on hospitals, 18% on drugs, 14% on MDs Research shows that private-for-profit care is more expensive (and potentially less effective)
    13. Methods of paying doctors (SIM web link) Fee-for-service: unit is services. Incentive to provide many services, especially procedures. Capitation: unit is patient. Fixed payment per patient. Incentive to keep people healthy, but not to make yourself accessible. Salary: unit is time. Productivity depends on professionalism and institutional controls Practice plans Combinations of above, e.g., "blended funding“ Family health networks (Ontario)
    14. Methods for paying hospitals Line-by-line: separate payments for staff, supplies, etc. Cumbersome, rigid. Global budget: fixed payment to be used as hospital sees fit. Fails to recognize differences in case mix. Case-Mix weighted: payment for total cost of episode, greater for more complicated cases. Now used in Canada. New technology: OHTAC reviews requests. If approved, government pays. If declined, hospitals can pay for it from core budget.
    16. CMPA “The role of the CMPA as a medical defence association representing the interests of individual physicians.” Canadian Medical Protective Association is a co-operative, replacing commercial malpractice insurance. It advises physicians on threatened litigation (talk to them early), and pays legal fees and court settlements. Fees vary by region and specialty ($792-$39,828/year).
    17. Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) Champlain LHIN Covers Renfrew, Lanark, Ottawa, Eastern Ontario Funds 21 hospitals, 7 community health centres, 61 long-term care homes, the Champlain Community Care Access Centre, and more than 100 Community Support Services including mental health and addictions agencies Covers approximately 1.1 million people or 9 per cent the population of Ontario
    18. Physician Organizations (1) Medical Council of Canada Maintains the Canadian Medical Registry Does not grant licence to practice medicine College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario Responsible for issuing license to practice medicine Handles public complaints, professional discipline, etc. Does not engage in lobbying on matters such as salaries, working conditions.
    19. Physician Organizations (2) Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Maintains standards for post-graduate training through-out Canada. Sets exams and issues fellowships for specialty training Ontario Medical Association Professional association; lobbies on behalf of physicians re: fees, working conditions, etc. College of Family Physicians of Canada Organization certifying/promoting family practice
    20. Public Health Units/Medical Officer of Health Reports to municipal government. Responsible for: Food/lodging sanitation Infectious disease control and immunization Health promotion, etc. Family health programmes E.g. family planning, pre-natal and pre-school care, tobacco prevention, nutrition Occupational and environmental health surveillance.
    21. Public Health Units/Medical Officer of Health (2) Powers include ordering people, due to a public health hazard, to take any of these actions: Vacate home or close business Regulate or prohibit sale, manufacture, etc. of any item Isolate people with communicable disease Require people to be treated by MD Require people to give blood samples
    22. Coroner Notify coroner of deaths in the following cases: Due to violence, negligence, misconduct, etc. During work at a construction or mining site. During pregnancy Sudden/unexpected Due to disease not treated by qualified MD Any cause other than disease Under suspicious circumstance or by ‘unfair means’ Deaths in jails, foster homes, nursing homes, etc.
    24. Role of Federal Government General responsibility for international health, public health, aboriginal health, etc. Funding: has the greatest taxing power Its provision of funding allows it to enforce the Canada Health Act, despite its lack of constitutional authority... Reductions in federal contributions have reduced its influence
    25. Role of Provincial Governments Responsibility for health (and most other expensive services) lies with the provinces Provinces provide most of the funding for health services Therefore, they are the main decision-makers: hospitals, public health, etc.
    26. Decision Making in Ontario (1) Province decides Which drugs funded through ODB Block budgets to LHINs Special payments for technologies Physician fees Other services covered
    27. Decision Making in Ontario (2) Drugs Ontario covers prescriptions for approx 20% of population Welfare recipients Over 65 Decision on what drugs to fund influenced by Committee to Evaluate Drugs Based on level of evidence Cost effectiveness
    28. Major Decision Making Committees (Ontario) Ontario Health Technology Advisory Committee Health technology funding to hospitals etc. Committee to Evaluate Drugs/ Canadian Expert Drug Advisory Committee Drug funding through OPDP Joint Oncology Drug Review Cancer drug funding
    29. Decision Making in Ontario (3) Role of LHINs 14 in number, replacing DHCs, regional offices of Ministry of Health & Long-term Care Plan, coordinate, integrate and partially manage care at the local level Members are appointed
    30. Decision Making in Ontario (4) Politics Many decisions are politically motivated not necessarily evidence based or efficient HPV vaccine Newborn screening Preoperative use of EPO
    31. 78.1: MEDICAL ECONOMICS (1) Define the socio-economic rationales, implications and consequences of medical care Medical care has impact on costs to society; both financial and other (non monetary) resources. This objective aims to raise awareness of these types of issues.
    32. MEDICAL ECONOMICS (2) Does effective medical care reduce health care spending? How do we value non-fiscal benefits such as quality of life, ‘health’, not being dead? Should resources be spent on health or other societal objectives? How do we value non-traditional expenditures, etc which impact on health (Healthy Public Policy).

    36. Principles of cost-containment Three approaches to improve cost effectiveness of health care delivery Eliminate ineffective care Reduce costs of effective care Substitute cheaper but equally effective care, day surgery for hospital admission, nurse practitioners for some primary care, generic drugs Reduce unit costs reduce salaries (risk of reduced effectiveness) or fees (but quantity provided may increase) Adopt only new interventions that are cost effective
    37. Assessing Cost Effectiveness
    38. Types of economic analysis (SIM web link)
    39. Economic Evaluation Example

      Coyle D, Coyle K, Bettinger JS, Halperin SA, Vaudry W, Scheifele DW, Le Saux N. Cost effectiveness of infant vaccination for rotavirus in Canada. CJIDDM (In press)
    40. Acknowledgements The economic analysis was funded by a grant from the Public Health Agency of Canada to the Canadian Paediatric Society.
    41. Methods Analysis was conducted through a Markov model which follows a cohort of children each month from birth to 5 years. Analysis uses pertinent data on the natural history of rotavirus and the effects of vaccination. Estimates of heath care costs for children requiring hospitalizations and Emergency Department visits were derived from the IMPACT surveillance and emergency department studies and other Canadian studies. The model estimates the effect of vaccination on costs and quality adjusted life years (QALYs).
    42. Schematic of Model Dead No infection Infection Previous infection
    43. Data Inputs (1) Monthly probability of primary RV infection Probability of death from RV per case of RV Relative risk reduction for secondary infection versus primary infection Monthly probability of death from other causes Distribution of RV infections without vaccination Not requiring medical management, GP visit, ED visit, Hospitalization
    44. Data Inputs (2) Vaccine Efficacy Meta analysis Vaccine uptake Utility Values Child and caregiver with and without rotavirus Vaccine Costs Costs of Rotavirus cases Hospitalization, Emergency dept. visit, GP visit
    45. Unvaccinated Population
    46. Vaccinated Population
    47. Cost Effectiveness of Infant Vaccination for Rotavirus
    48. Conclusions From a societal perspective, a universal vaccination program against rotavirus will be both cost saving and more effective than no vaccination assuming there are limited additional costs of administration. From a health care system perspective, a program would not be considered cost effective at current vaccine costs Reducing the costs of the vaccine by 50% would make vaccination cost effective
    49. Impact Based on the results of the analysis and a negotiated lower price: Ontario MOHLTC covers RotarixTM Publicly Funded Immunization Schedules for Ontario to protect infants against diarrhea and vomiting caused by rotavirus infection. BC covers Rotarix
