Care Coordination

  • The Care Coordination tiger team identified four priority sub-domains to focus their efforts.
    • Effective Care Plans – An effective care plan is a partnership between the patient, his/her family, and the health care team. This may be known as a self management plan.
    • Care Transitions – A care transition is the movement of a patient between health care providers or health care settings. A care transition occurs anytime there is a patient handoff.
    • Appropriate and Timely Follow-Up – Appropriate and timely follow-up includes the response from the recipient (physician), such as taking a follow-up action, and acknowledgment of the receipt of the information to the patient and/or sender (specialty provider, etc).
    • Intervention Coordination - Intervention coordination includes medication management and intervention management, such as diagnostic imaging, testing and other services (OT/PT). Coordination should be appropriate, affordable, and be communicated to the patient.

Efficiency Including Underuse and Overuse

  • The Efficiency tiger team identified five sub-domains to focus their efforts.
    • Person-Centered Better Care – Measures that show impacts to patients as they move through the entire care delivery system in an efficient manner.
    • Proven Care — Measures evaluating the use of effective care based on practice guideline.
    • Leading Conditions: Longitudinal Care Dashboards – Measures related to Leading Conditions which would enable the creation of a longitudinal dashboard that follows patient progress, including medications, diagnostics, proven care, readmissions, functional status, and patient education.
    • Value-Based Population and Preventative Health – Measures focused on effective use of preventative health measures.
    • Appropriate Care - Measures that focus on underused clinical tools or stinting of care.

Patient Safety

  • The Patient Safety tiger team identified three priority sub-domains to focus their efforts.
    • Medication Safety — Measures that show the prevention and reporting of Adverse Drug Events (ADEs) and use of evidence based medicine.
    • Hospital Associated Events — Measures related to the prevention and reporting of Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) and Venous Thromboembolism (VTEs).
    • Falls — Measures related to the prevention and reporting of falls.

Patient and Family Engagement

  • The Patient and Family Engagement tiger team identified five priority sub-domains to focus their efforts.
    • Self-Management/Activation—Measures that show that the patient understands what their role is in their own care process and has the knowledge, skills and confidence to move forward in this role, including resources & support for self-management.
    • Honoring Patient Preferences and Shared-Decision Making—Measures that demonstrate that the patient has the knowledge, resources and confidence in making informed decisions about their care. Also includes the quality of decision making, connecting patients to resources, assessing patient preferences and whether the care that was delivered is in line with patients’ preferences.
    • Patient Health Outcomes—Measures that focus on optimizing three States (Disease/disability, Health Risk, and Functioning Health) at the individual patient level and/or population level.
    • Health Activities Coordination—Measures that show if a patient was connected to community resources.
    • Family/Caregiver Engagement—Measure that show that a patient’s family/caregiver was engaged in/during the other four sub-domains listed above.

Population and Public Health

  • The Population and Public Health tiger team identified three priority sub-domains to focus their efforts.
    • Healthy Lifestyle Behaviors -  Longitudinal outcome measures of improvement (or lack of improvement) resulting from patient health-related behaviors
    • Effective Preventive Services - Longitudinal outcome measures of improvement (or lack of improvement) resulting from the use of preventive health care.
    • Health Equity - Longitudinal outcome measures that evaluate the quality of health care across priority populations to track and prevent inequities and health care disparities.

Methodological Issues

  • The Methodological Issues tiger team will focus on the following three areas:
    • Longitudinal measures
    • Delta measures
    • Adverse event reporting

Next Steps

  • Tiger Teams report to Quality Measures Workgroup (October 28, 2010)
  • Quality Measures Workgroup presents recommendation to HIT Policy Committee (December)
  • Send Request for Information (RFI) to identify measures in use or measures that need retooling that meet priorities and fill gaps (early November)
  • Develop RFP for innovative measure development, testing, and validation to fill in gaps (mid-December)
