The Supporting White Paper • Google: “12-Point Review of Population Health Management Companies”
Overview • Evaluate healthcare IT vendors and their PHM offerings • Develop internal strategies and roadmaps for Accountable Care Organizations (ACO) • Not the processes of PHM, per se • Not on activity based costing and fixed-price (bundled pricing) contract management– that’s a separate webinar
Poll Question • On a scale of 1-5 where do you feel your organization is in its Population Health maturity? • 5 – Very high maturity • 4 • 3 • 2 • 1 – Little or no maturity
Today’s Key Takeaways • The ROI of Population Health Management (PHM) is still in debate • Investment is costly, returns are challenging • 40% of healthcare is patient lifestyle related • Focus on the highest ROI areas of PHM for now • Stratifying population risk makes no sense without a strategy for intervention • And focusing on the highest risk patients might have the lowest ROI • No single vendor meets all PHM needs • You’ll need a patchwork of solutions to fill the gaps • “So you offer PHM, eh? OK, which parts?”
True Population HealthManagement Requires a collaborative strategy between leaders in healthcare, politics, charity, education, and business Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, 2014
Population Health Management The Ordered Checklist for Your 3-5 Year Journey • Registries: Evidence-based definitions of patients to include in the PHM registries • Attribution & Assignment: Clinician-patient attribution algorithms • Precise Numerators: Discrete, evidence based methods for flagging patients in the registries that are difficult to manage in the protocol, or should be excluded from the registry, altogether • Clinical & Cost Metrics: Monitoring clinical effectiveness and total cost of care (to the system and the patient) • Basic Protocols: Evidence based triage and clinical protocols for single disease states • Risk Outreach:Stratified work queues that feed care management teams and processes for outreach to patients • External Data: Access to test results and medication compliance data outside the core healthcare delivery organization • Communication: Patient engagement and communication system about their care, including coordination of benefits • Education: Patient education material and a distribution system, tailored to their status and protocol • Complex Protocols: Evidence based triage and clinical protocols for comorbid patients • Coordination: Inter-physician/clinician communication system about overlapping patients • Outcomes: Patient reported outcomes measurement system, tailored to their status and protocol
Precise Patient Registries • Evidence-based definitions of patients to include in population health registries • 1 Must go beyond ICD codes, which are likely to miss 30-40% of the population
Patient-Provider Attribution • Strategies and algorithms to assign patients to accountable physicians or clinicians • 2 Generally accepted options for assigning attribution
Precise Numerators in Registries • Discrete, evidence-based methods for flagging the patients in the registries that are difficult to manage or should be excluded from PHM, altogether • 3
Clinical and Cost Metrics • Monitoring clinical effectiveness and cost of care to the system and patient • 4
Basic Clinical Practice Guidelines • Evidence-based triage and clinical protocols for single disease states • 5 ( ) ( ) High Opportunity = Number of patients In the population The Average Total Medical Expenditure (TME) per Capita X
Risk Management Outreach • Stratified work queues that feed care management teams and processes • 6 Risk stratification enables an organization to analyze and minimize the progression of a disease and the development of comorbidities
Be Careful What You Ask For Correlation Patients with the highest satisfaction scores => Higher rate of hospital admissions Prescribed more medications Unpublished, internal data analysis; Northwestern University Medicine Enterprise Data Warehouse, 2008 We were not the first or only organization to see this trend
Strategies for PHM Intervention • Disease management — Example: Diabetes management programs • Catastrophic care management — Example: Programs to reduce risk for individuals with a high risk of developing conditions that lead to catastrophic healthcare costs (e.g., cancer, brain injury) • Demand management — Example: Nurse call lines • Disability management — Example: Employer-sponsored programs to reduce disability days and costs • Lifestyle management — Example: Seat belt compliance campaigns, smoking cessation programs, weight management programs • Integrated care management — Example: Programs that integrate other types of interventions (e.g., catastrophic care management,disease management and demand management for cancer patients) with shared outcomes and monitoring over time From Becker’s Hospital Review. Connie Evashwick and Ann Scheck McAlearney, at the American College of Healthcare Executives' 57th Congress on Healthcare Leadership.
Caution of Paradox • “…population strategies which focus on reducing the risk of those already at low or moderate risk will often be more effective than strategies which focus on high risk individuals at improving population health in the long run.” Gordon Norman Chief Medical Officer, xG Health Solutions Recommended reading: Geoffrey Rose, “Sick Individuals and Sick Populations”, International Journal of Epidemiology 1985;14:32–38.
Acquiring External Data • Access to clinical encounter data, cost data, laboratory test results, and pharmacy data outside the core healthcare delivery organization • 7 Contrary to current national strategy and focus, acquiring external data should be a secondary focus in today’s market
Communication with Patients • Engaging patients and establishing a communication system about their care • 8 Current solutions are fragmented and immature but will improve dramatically in the next 3 years
Educating and Engaging Patients • Patient education material and distribution system, tailored to the patient’s status and protocol • 9 Our current patient education system is hampered by the lack of highly personalized materials and an effective distribution system • Low-income, preteen girl with type 1 diabetes likely to receive same education material as a middle-aged executive man • Materials are not tailored to blend comorbid conditions together

Obesity Rates by Occupation American Journal of Preventive Medicine Volume 46, Issue 3 , Pages 237-248, March 2014 Graph from The Atlantic, March, 2014
Complex Clinical Practice Guidelines • Evidence-based triage and clinical protocols for comorbid patients • 10 Establishing protocols for comorbid patients is complicated
Care Team Coordination • Inter-clinician communication and project coordination • 11 We need to treat every patient as if they are at the center of a project plan
Tracking Specific Outcomes • Patient-reported outcomes measurement system, tailored to the patient’s status and protocol • 12 Patient-reported outcomes data is one of the most important pieces of data missing from our ecosystem today
Vendor Evaluation and Scoring No single vendor today offers an integrated and fully functional population health management solution that meets all 12 criteria How did I come up with these scores? Personal experience as a customer of the vendors’ products Personal experience as an executive in the company (i.e. Health Catalyst) Conversations and interviews with current and past customers of the vendors’ products Market reports from, and conversations with, industry analysts at KLAS, Chilmark, IDC, Gartner, and the Advisory Board Publically available information on the vendors, including their own case studies, white papers, on-line product demos, and product information Conversations with current and past employees of the vendors
Focus on the framework & criteria, not the scoresScore these and other vendors yourselves
Vendor Evaluation and Scoring First tier evaluation scores
Vendor Evaluation and Scoring Second tier evaluation scores
Asset Allocation and Timing Recommended asset allocation as the market and organization evolve and mature in population health management
Asset Allocation and Timing • Recommendations • Build a population health management roadmap • Start as soon as possible with the first six criteria while the latter six develop in the market
Poll question • Who do you think will be the most capable to meet the data management requirements of Population Health Management? • EMR vendors • Analytic Specialists • A combination of both
Conclusion • Key points to remember • Follow the lead of the IDNs which have been practicing PHM for years • Reference this presentation and the CCHIT framework when developing an organizational strategy and evaluating vendors for PHM • NQF has a new PHM initiative… keep an eye on that • There is no single vendor that can provide a complete PHM solution today • Sequencing is important. Focus on the first six criteria over the next three years while the context evolves
