national perspective
National perspective
  • At >17% of GDP, healthcare costs - out of control
  • Value delivered is limited– US ranks below most industrialized nations on quality metrics, despite spending more
  • Healthcare IT - part of the solution – prioritized and funded
    • American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
  • Patient Centered Medical Home gaining as the delivery model of choice
healthcare reform likely possible
Healthcare Reform likely possible
  • Details change daily, but will probably might include
    • Coverage expansion for the uninsured, perhaps through a public plan or premium assistance programs
    • Emphasis on preventive care
    • More prominent role of the Patient Centered Medical Home
    • Emphasis on Healthcare IT

what we can t do
What WE CAN’T Do
  • “Grow” more doctors quickly
  • Create new hospitals overnight
  • Force patients to:
        • Exercise
        • Stop smoking
        • Lose weight
what we can do
What We Can Do

Leverage Technology

  • Complex populations
  • Limited Resources:
    • Create a lean healthcare system
    • Improve Care Coordination
    • Business case for:
      • Funding
      • Efficiency
where to focus
Where to Focus?
  • Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) important, but . . .
  • Health Information Exchanges (HIEs)
    • immediate benefit and greater cost savings
  • Community-wide care coordination (CCC)
    • more benefit and cost savings

Evidence Increasingly shows that improved “systemness” drives quality and efficiency

Anatomy: Detailed Version
  • HIE - Central Data Repository for a core set of clinical variables
  • eMPI - Master Patient Index tracks unique patients and ensures data integrity
  • Community Order Entry/Physician Portal- Centralized system coordinating orders, referrals, consultations, radiology and diagnostic tests, PT/OT, etc.
  • Decision analytics - Tools and algorithms for patient identification, prioritizing patients for interventions, prioritizing appropriate interventions each patient
  • Patient Portal - gives patients access to their own community health records, ability to communicate with their providers:
    • eVisits, Schedule requests, Refill requests, Patient educational materials, Self-care logs (BP, BS, asthma, etc.), Health Risk Assessments (Depression screen, Cardiac risk), Review records shared across the community
  • Comprehensive clinical education support
    • Trainee portfolios, Evaluations, Delivery of relevant didactic educational materials

have we given this any thought
Have we given this any thought?
  • 2004: Harvard Center for IT Leadership published a report on the value of health information exchange
    • $77B in annual savings through Health IT
    • Prompted, in part, the creation of the Office of the National Coordinator for Healthcare IT (ONCHIT), the Health IT “Czar”
  • 2006: GKFF commissioned an OK-specific evaluation of the value of HIE
  • Clinicians have incomplete knowledge of their patients
    • Relevant patient data not available in 81% of ambulatory visits Tang 1994
    • 18% of medical errors that lead to ADEs due to missing patient information. Leape JAMA 1995
  • Medicare patients see an average of 5.6 different providers each year= 5.6 silos of data
  • What is the value of HIE for Oklahoma and specifically for the Tulsa region?
