  1. Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise Presentation of Grouped Procedures • Charles Parisot, GE Healthcare • IHE IT Radiology Planning and Technical Committees IHE - Effective Integration of the Enterprise and the Health System

  2. Agenda • Scheduled Workflow: Refresher on critical workflow concepts • Scheduled Workflow:Refresher on well identified workflow cases • Presentation of Grouped Procedures:Taking the Group Case a step further • What should I do as an implementer ?Taking advantage of the new Appendix A IHE - Effective Integration of the Enterprise and the Health System

  3. IHE Scheduled Workflow Patient Registration/UpdateOrder Management Worklist Modality Worklist Procedure Scheduled Store Images StorageCommitment Storage Commitment List of Images Modality Performed Procedure Step Performed Step: Status = Completed Performed CT Head Pat Name/ID, Dose, Accession #, Study UID Complete List of Images RIS PACS &Archive • A Closed Loop • Update IS Scheduling • Match Procedure with Order • Support Billing Based on MPPS • Avoid Reading incomplete Procedures IHE - Effective Integration of the Enterprise and the Health System

  4. IHE Workflow Concepts IHE identifies four fundamental workflow information units : Procedure Steps :The smallest unit of work in the workflow:SCHEDULED PROCEDURE STEP: ‘A unit of work to do’PERFORMED PROCEDURE STEP: ‘A unit of work done’ ORDER : A request for radiologic service REQUESTED PROCEDURE : A Unit of Reporting Work with associated codified, billable acts IHE - Effective Integration of the Enterprise and the Health System

  5. IHE Workflow is User Driven CLINICIANOR REFERING DOC:The Imaging Dept Customer RADIOLOGIST : In Charge of producing theReport TECHNOLOGIST(and RADIOLOGIST)In charge of acquiring images, etc. Information Unit has its Prime User ORDER:A request for imaging service (Accession Number) REQUESTED PROCEDURE : Units of work resulting in one Reportwith associated codified, billable acts(Requested Procedure ID) PROCEDURE STEP :The smallest unit of workin the workflow (modality worklist entry) IHE - Effective Integration of the Enterprise and the Health System

  6. Normal Workflow One or more series of images Typical workflow: One Order – One Procedure – One Report Radiology Department ORDER A request for RadiologicService Set of Codifiable, Billable, Acts Requested Procedure Report Acquisition Modality IHE - Effective Integration of the Enterprise and the Health System

  9. The Group Case Approach One Order – Two Procedures – One Acquisition - Two Reports Step Requested Procedure CT Chest Requested Procedure CTAbdomen One or more series of images Radiology Department ORDER A request for RadiologicService CT Chest & Abdomen Set of Codifiable, Billable, Acts Report CT Chest Acquisition Modality Report CT Abdo Set of Codifiable, Billable, Acts IHE - Effective Integration of the Enterprise and the Health System

  11. Is Grouping of Procedures a common need ? • CT Chest/Abdomen/Pelvis • Neuroradiology: CT Neck & CT Chest • MR Imaging of different sections of the spine • MRI and MRA of vessels acquired together • MRI of the head and neck with specialized coils • Direct radiography (DR)in a trauma patient: AP images, then move the patient once to acquire a set of orthogonal images, and then regroup by body part • Sonographic evaluation of the kidneys and of the abdomen • CT of the pelvis with CT angiographic runoff • Angiographic studies of multiple vessels mixed with therapeutic interventions on selected segments. IHE - Effective Integration of the Enterprise and the Health System

  12. Why is the Grouping of Procedures a significant need ? • Optimize patient comfort • Optimize time of image acquisition. • Maintain the link back to each one of the grouped procedures without breaking the acquisition apart. • Ensure that each image subset related to a requested procedure is identified and ready to be presented. This is key for quick display of new and prior studies. • In the film world, images are manually sorted. In the film-less world, images should be sorted automatically when displayed But, there is the need to: IHE - Effective Integration of the Enterprise and the Health System

  13. Grouping of Procedures in IHE • Group Case support is required by the IHE Scheduled Workflow Integration Profile: • On Image Managers (PACS) • On Order Fillers (RIS). • Group Case support is optional on Modalities. • PGP requires support of the “Group Case Option” on Modalities. IHE - Effective Integration of the Enterprise and the Health System

  14. PGP Integration Profilebuilds upon SWF and CPI Scheduled Workflow Admit, order, schedule, acquire images, notify of completed steps Presentation ofGrouped Procedures Presentation of Subsets of a Single Acquisition Required for ConsistentPresentation of Images Softcopy grayscale and presentation state + IHE - Effective Integration of the Enterprise and the Health System

  16. Presentation of Grouped Procedures Improves workflow, overall efficiency of care and reduces costs of providing services: • Lowers barriers to migration to digital radiology practice • Optimizes use of newer & faster acquisition devices • Improves clarity and access to Radiology results • Simplifies and facilitates billing of grouped procedures • Enhances softcopy interpretation throughput IHE - Effective Integration of the Enterprise and the Health System

  19. Implementing PGP made easy ! • Feedback from early implementors has resulted in significant improvement for the Technical Framework: • Appendix A has been entirely restructured to provide a thorough and unambiguous specifications of all SWF+PGP workflow cases. • The NewAppendix A defines precisely every details for information mappings in modalities between MWL, Images/Presentation States, Modality PPS. This is critical information for PACS and RIS implementations of SWF and PGP. IHE - Effective Integration of the Enterprise and the Health System
