Provider Education Committee

national chlamydia coalition ncc
National Chlamydia Coalition (NCC)
  • Formed in 2008
  • Comprised of over 40 organizations
    • Health care professional organizations
    • Insurers
    • Non-profit organizations
    • Local, state, federal government representatives
  • Managed by Partnership for Prevention
    • Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
  • Mission
    • Address the high burden of chlamydia in adolescents and young adults by promoting equal access to comprehensive and quality health services
why a collaboration with the ncqa
Why a Collaboration with the NCQA?
  • NCQA recognizes hundreds of plans covering >136 million people (43% of the U.S. population)
  • NCQA is the most widely-recognized accreditation program in the United States
  • The NCQA seal is a recognized symbol of quality
  • NCQA is the developer of the Health Effectiveness Data Information Set (HEDIS) measures
  • The HEDIS chlamydia screening measure for women is part of the NCQA accreditation program
national committee on quality assurance ncqa
National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA)
  • Accredited health plans meet a rigorous set of more than 60 standards and must report on performance in more than 40 areas to earn NCQA’s seal
  • NCQA develops quality standards and performance measures for a broad range of health care entities (not just health plans)
  • Health and Human Services (HHS) selected NCQA as an accrediting entity for Qualified Health Plan issuers participating in the Health Insurance Exchange Marketplace
  • Health plans in every state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico are NCQA Accredited
chlamydia screening measure why focus on health plans
Chlamydia Screening Measure: Why Focus on Health Plans?
  • In 2012, 3,863,618 sexually active women were seen in 626 health plans reporting on chlamydia HEDIS measure
  • Only 5 states have fewer than 5 health plans (AL, AK, AR, ND, WY) where data are not publically reported
    • However, plans in those states still report HEDIS data to NCQA
  • In 2012 less than half of eligible women were screened for chlamydia (49.2%)
hedis chlamydia screening measure
HEDIS Chlamydia Screening Measure
  • The percentage of women 15–24 years of age who were identified as sexually active and who had at least one test for chlamydia during the measurement year.
    • Commercial, Medicaid (report each product line separately)
  • Ages: Women 16–24 years as of December 31 of the measurement year. Report two age stratifications and a total rate.
    • 16–20 years, 21–24 years, and Total
  • Allowable gap: No more than one gap in enrollment of up to 45 days during the measurement year.
  • Anchor date: December 31 of the measurement year.
sexually active
Sexually Active
  • Two methods identify sexually active women: pharmacy data and claim/encounter data. The organization must use both methods to identify the eligible population; however, a member only needs to be identified in one method to be eligible for the measure.
  • Pharmacy data. Members who were dispensed prescription contraceptives during the measurement year.

first foray approaching the ncqa
First Foray: Approaching the NCQA
  • Chlamydia screening recognition program?
    • Deemed too narrow
    • Might consider “sexual health” umbrella
      • HPV vaccine pre sexual activity
      • Pap smear screening (at 90%)
  • Treatment measure?
    • NCQA reviewed data and determined that once chlamydia was identified, treatment rate was 95%
  • Re-screening measure?
    • Confidentiality of reporting positive CT test
    • Problems with time interval post treatment using administrative data
  • Take Away Message: Primary problem is obtaining the initial screening test
second foray presenting at hedis best practices conferences
Second Foray: Presenting at HEDIS Best Practices Conferences
  • Annual meeting held on each coast
  • 200-300 quality improvement professionals from health plans and vendors attend
  • What’s new in HEDIS and other quality standards reviewed
  • Chlamydia screening featured topic in 2012
    • Case study of improving chlamydia screening presented
  • Take Away: Reaching quality improvement professionals in health plans may be as (perhaps more?) important than reaching providers to improve chlamydia screening rates
current collaboration ncc and ncqa
Current Collaboration: NCC and NCQA
  • NCQA staff on NCC provider education committee’s working group
  • Developing a 3 part webinar series designed to improve chlamydia screening HEDIS scores
    • One session per week from February 16 – week of March 2
    • 90 minutes sessions
    • At least one case study per session
topics
Topics
  • Session I – Current News, on Chlamydia, Screening Measure, Specifications, and Performance
    • Overview of epidemiology, scope of problem, screening recommendations, treatment
    • HEDIS specifications (inclusions/exclusions), HEDIS rates over time, other programs where CT measure may meet quality improvement requirements
    • Case study in establishing a QI program
  • Session II – The path to Improving chlamydia screening HEDIS rates
    • Considerations and Addressing Barriers at the Plan level
    • Considerations and Addressing Barriers in the Practice setting
    • Two case studies from health plans and organizations that have improved
topics cont d
Topics (cont’d)
  • Session III – Tools and Tips for Addressing Specific Barriers
    • National look at State laws on confidentiality
    • Confidentiality and sensitive services
    • Billing and EOB’s
    • Becoming adolescent friendly – taking a sexual history, talking with parents, time alone with teen, tools for providers and clinics
    • Education Materials – for patients, parents, providers and other staff
    • Case study from a plan with increased chlamydia screening among adolescents
what else to do there s something for everyone
What Else To Do?“There’s something for everyone”
  • CDC could explore options for sharing plan specific data with states to reduce costs for grantees
  • Identify quality improvement, measurement, and evaluation departments within your health department
  • Find out whether HEDIS data are published in your state (many states do have this at insurance sites)
    • Health plans are very competitive
  • Explore health plan websites looking for NCQA accreditation or certification recognition
    • Find the names of quality assurance or quality improvement staff (these are often on plan websites)
what else to do there s something for everyone1
What Else To Do?“There’s something for everyone”
  • Promote the NCC/NCQA webinar series to health plans in your jurisdiction
    • We will distribute Save the Date and other marketing information
    • Let us know who, in your state, should be identified as a resource for health plans
    • Perhaps offer incentives to participate
  • Learn the language of the quality improvement world
  • Listen to the next speaker for a plethora of other ideas and potential motivators in approaching plans
