Planning Approach Retrospective Analysis Prospective Analysis Where do we go from here? Can we generate an even better return on investment within TH (quantity / quality / distribution of data)? What will it take? Why did we do this? Comparative Effectiveness Analysis Inpatient Ambulatory Care Continuum Other What did we complete relative to what we originally envisioned? Can we turn what we’ve done into new revenue streams? Business Model Asset / Capability Inventory Potential Customers Potential Competitors What outcomes were achieved? What are the organizational requirements to execute? What did we spend? Personnel Resources Financial Resources Other Resources What will truly differentiate Trinity Health? What were key decision points? What decisions did we make? Learnings? Innovation Key Processes Partnerships Business Model Economics What are the Trinity Health, industry, and policy implications?

Solidifying Gains:GSSP – Genesis Safety and Simplification Program Simpler is Safer
Embracing Reform:HCRA – Health Care Reform Act BTW – HCRA is aka PPACA + HCEARA • Comparative • Effectiveness Research • Finding what works • Elimination of unnecessary variation • Appropriate standardization of care • Foundation for value-based • payment • Payment Alignment • Bundled payments • Value-based payment • Readmission penalties • Primary care/medical home • Chronic care coordination • Health IT • Funding in stimulus bill • Bonuses starting 2011 for “meaningful use” • Penalties start 2015 for noncompliance
Embracing Reform:MU – Meaningful Use • The spirit of “really meaningful use”: • Implement technologies and processes that improve care • Ensure they are used • Measure outcomes and keep going
Extending the Core:MDA – Mergers, Divestitures & Acquisitions MDA produces value when it results in clinical integration that improves care. Increasingly, clinical integration is dependent on technology integration. Significant MDA’s last 36 months
Instrumentation Intelligence Interoperability POC IPOC BMDI eICU Private HIE Public HIE Portals EWS Etc. Extending the Core:RTE – Real Time Enterprise Significant technology innovations and cost reductions in the ability to capture, move, and use data will increase information velocity allowing for real-time or near real-time decision-making in many aspects of healthcare.
Redefining our Ministry:AHN – Accountable Health Networks Health reform and market forces are driving more integrated models of care – it is expected that each Trinity Health market will evolve to some form of an ACO While the ultimate design is uncertain … it is certain to be complex and to vary by market … therefore, Trinity’s technical design must be robust and adaptable
Redefining our Ministry:Accountable Health Networks Technologies • Physician Practices • Enterprise Practice Management • Electronic Medical Record • ePrescribing • EMPI Integration • Interoperability • Patient Portal • Consumer Portal • Long-term Care • Electronic Medical Record • EMPI Integration • Interoperability • Home Health Care • Care Management • EMPI Integration
Evolving Our Intelligence:BI / CI – Business & Clinical Intelligence Business Intelligence systems allow leaders to manage the enterprise by looking out the windshield rather than the rear view mirror ~ Unknown Stages of BI Maturity Leading Trinity Health’s Current Position Advanced • Personalized dashboards and alerts • Near real-time performance monitoring • Forward looking analytics, forecasting and predictive models • BI competency center to maintain strong governance • Information integration across organization • Enterprise data warehouse, including robust metadata repository • Processes exist to integrate additional data sources and domains • Single version of truth • Formal data governance requirements and policies Defined • Organization has a formal BI strategy • Data is gathered from disparate systems • Some integration across business units • Improved information access and delivery • Subject area data warehouses • Developing data governance processes Developing Beginning • Ad hoc models / spreadsheets • Automated reporting limited to transactional systems • Many operational performance measures have definitions, but different values are reported • Spreadsheet driven • Significant manual effort to collect data • Limited to operations and regulatory reporting • Limited knowledge of data sources
Evolving Our Intelligence:CE – Comparative Effectiveness Trinity Health Accelerating the Cycle! CE Within Trinity • Pain Management • Pressure Ulcers • Fall Prevention • Enterprise Formulary • ICU Utilization • Order Set Standards • Implant Management • CAUTI Reduction Capture Data Financial Incentives Improve Quality & Efficiency Comparative Effectiveness Research Change Operations Bundled Payment Methods Aligned Incentives Technology Infrastructure (HIT)
Summary – The Journey Continues Transactional Era Era of Intelligence 2020 1999 2009 VI. Commercializing From 1999 to 2009, the primary focus of Trinity Health was levels I, II, and III of the IS Maturity & Value Model. From 2010 to 2020, the primary focus will be increasing value in levels IV, V, and VI. V. BI / CI IV.
