  2. Motivation: Preparedness, Response and Electronic Health Records • HHS Secretary Leavitt …. "There may not have been an experience that demonstrates, for me or the country, more powerfully the need for electronic health records ... than Katrina." …. (HHS - 9/13/2005). • Hurricane Katrina • Many paper health and health care records lost permanently • Many digital records available in days

  3. Motivation: “Storm” of Problems • Error rates are too high • 20 deaths due to errors in MN Hospitals in 2004 • Quality is inconsistent • ~50% of adults don’t get offered recommended care • Costs are escalating • 11% average yearly cost growth over past 5 years. • Research results are not rapidly used • ~ 17 years until new innovations are widely used. • Capacity for early detection & response to threats and disasters is minimal • Katrina response • Limited Public Health Capacity

  4. Motivation: Un-Linked Systems Are Resource Expensive • “we typically have to enter the same child's name again and again in 6 or more data systems and then try and keep the address and related information up to date”. It can be a nightmare and it is expensive. • Local Public Health Department Director

  5. Motivation: Information Technology Can Help Solve Real Problems Today • 40% of outpatient prescriptions unnecessary • 20% of lab & x-ray tests ordered because originals can not be found • 18% medical errors from inadequate patient information. • Patients get only 54.9% of recommended care • 49% of notifiable diseases reported - Dr. Blackford Middleton, PHIN 2005 Meeting
