  1. Transformational Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to Support the Medical Home March 2009 Vince Kuraitis JD, MBA Better Health Technologies, LLC http://e-CareManagement.com blog (208) 395-1197

  2. Overview • I. Level Setting – Current Status of Technology Inside/Outside the PCMH • II. Thesis: A Virtual, Integrated PCMH • III. Possible Paths to Virtual Integration • IV. Discussion

  3. I. Level Setting – Current Status of Technology Inside/Outside the PCMH

  4. CONSUMER TECH INFRASTRUCTURE Internet Smart houses Personal communications devices -- PDAs, cell phones, etc. Broadband -- cable, DSL, satellite Digital cameras, video Wireless -- 802.11, Bluetooth, RFID, etc. Voice recognition, etc. eHEALTH APPLICATIONS Electronic Health Records (EHRs) Personal Health Records (PHRs) Remote patient monitoring Health 2.0 Fitness/wellness/prevention Self care support Physician/patient secure messaging Home telehealth/telecare Decision support systems e-Prescribing e-Disease Management e-Clinical Trials Predictive modeling Computerized Physician Order Entry Quality evaluation web sites Patient reminder systems, etc. Technology Outside the PCMH —Convergence

  5. CONSUMER Focal Points for ConvergenceHome Networks, Smart Phones, EHRs Home Network PHR/ EHR Smart Phone • eHEALTH

  6. Technology Inside the PCMH • Mindset: EHR & registry are foundational technologies for PHR • EHR adoption levels low

  7. PCMH Provider Readiness Measuring the Medical Home Infrastructure in Large Medical Groups - Rittenhouse, et.al., Health Affairs, 27.5.1246 Measured 4 of 7 PCMH Components • Infrastructure – physician directed medical practice • Care Coordination/integration • Quality and Safety • Enhanced Access “Our data suggest that relatively low levels of infrastructure exist in large medical groups to support the PCMH and highlights the gap between the current state of medical practice and widespread adoption of the PCMH” Proprietary & Confidential Slide # 7

  8. 2 Schools of ThoughtHOW Best to Spend Fed HIT Stimulus $$ Incumbents (Cats) Pay for technology: fund IT & providers will use IT to improve quality and reduce costs EHR/ software as foundational technology Provider centric HIT investment needed Client-server, enterprise model architecture Current systems adequate & will improve Disruptive Innovators (Dogs) Pay for desired outcomes: change financial incentives & IT will naturally follow EHR not necessarily foundational; many other options less complex Patient centric HIT investment needed Web browser as platform, cloud computing Danger in investment in current clinical systems 8

  9. Synthesis is Possible

  10. II. Thesis: A Virtual, Integrated PCMH

  11. Examine current PHR adoption • Typical 2- 5% • Best Practice • Kaiser: 30% • Group Health Cooperative (GHC): 50% • Why?

  12. Features/Functionality of Kaiser & GHC PHRSs (as of mid 2008)

  13. Network Effects(Tipping Point) Source: Shapiro, C. Varian, H. Network Effects 1998

  14. Personal Health Information Platform

  15. Evidence on Value of Integration • “...systems tended to have a positive effect when they provided a complete feedback loop that included: • Monitoring of current patient status. • Interpretation of this data in light of established, often individualized, treatment goals. • Adjustment of the management plan as needed. • Communication back to the patient with tailored recommendations or advice. • Repetition of this cycle at appropriate intervals. • Systems that provided only one or a subset of these functions were less consistently effective.”

  16. IV. Possible Paths to Virtual Integration

  17. ...Observe the Early Emergence of Collaborative Care Management Networks • Characteristics • Multi-payer participation • Common clinical guidelines/shared care processes • Common IT infrastructure enabling information exchange and shared workflow (highly desirable today, essential in the future) • Aligned financial incentives and shared accountability across providers • Trust and shared responsibility • Many embryonic examples • Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement , Minnesota • State Chronic Care Initiatives: Iowa, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Washington, Rhode Island, Colorado, others • Improving Performance in Practice initiatives • Accountable Care Organizations (Elliott Fisher, Dartmouth) • Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) initiatives

  18. Watchlist • National health care reform legislation • Impact of HITECH legislation • Development and adoption of cost, quality, patient satisfaction metrics, e.g., • NQF developing care coordination measures, e.g., CTM-3 care transition measurement • NCQA PPC • Adoption of personal health information platforms (Google, MS, etc.)

  19. Role of vendors, health plans, others • Existing vendors to physicians: EHRs, registry, practice management, etc. • One stop shopping vendors • DM companies • Network integration companies • ...expect others

  20. “...the healing professions are in the midst of a major sea-change, a once-in-a-century shift: We’re moving from ‘medicine practiced as individual heroism’ to ‘medicine as a team sport’” Brent James MD, Intermountain Healthcare
