  1. Stimulus Funding, Meaningful Use and the Transformation of our Health Care Delivery System October 27, 2009 California Center for Connected Health

  2. Five years ago… “…Within 10 years, every American must have a personal electronic medical record. That's a good goal for the country to achieve. The federal government has got to take the lead in order to make this happen..” George W. Bush, Speaking to the American Association of Community Colleges, April 26, 2004 2

  3. Historical Look at Spending in Health IT • Total Federal Health IT Spending (through ONC) before HITECH: $300,000,000 • Total expected gross outlays through HITECH (up to): $45,000,000,000 • i.e., a 15,000% increase • Put yet another way – it represents a 600% increase in the EMR market, essentially overnight 3

  4. HITECH Overview 4

  5. Funding Flows – Entitlements Entitlement Funds (Up to $45 billion in gross outlays) Program Distribution Agency* Use of Funds Acute Care and Children’s Hospitals Medicare Payment Incentives Incentive Payments through Carriers CMS Incentive Payments through State Agencies Medicaid Payment Incentives CMS and states Physicians and Dentists Nurse Practitioners and Midwives “Meaningful Use” FQHC Source: California HealthCare Foundation, 2009 CMS is Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, 5

  7. Two Programs in Support of Meaningful Use 7

  8. Health Information Exchange Cooperative Agreement Program $564 million Federal program; $38.8 million for California States must develop Strategic and Operational Plans: Operational plans must address five “domains” identified by ONC: Governance, Finance, Technical infrastructure, Business and technical operations, Legal and policy Coordination with Medicaid (Medi-Cal) Governance entity Priority: Support Meaningful Use 8

  9. Meaningful Use Priorities • E-prescribing and medication reconciliation • Electronic lab ordering and results reporting • Continuity of care • Administrative transactions (claims and eligibility) • Public health reporting • Quality reporting 9

  10. Regional Extension Center Program • $598 million in federal funding, 70+ centers funded in three cycles, $30 M max per REC • ~$500 million for technical assistance • ~$100 million for core support: • Three organizations asked to submit proposals to ONC by November 3rd: • LA Care • CalOptima • CalREC (CPCA, CMA, CAPH) • Common governance structure • Centralized “core” services • Decentralized technical assistance services • Coordination with Medi-Cal critical • Up to $30,000 per provider to support EHR acquisition 10

  11. REC Core Principles • The REC program should support as many providers as possible to enable their meaningful use of electronic health records and maximize their share of the $45 billion in expected meaningful use incentive payments • The REC program should maximize California’s collective receipt of federal funding under the REC cooperative agreement program • The REC program should coordinate its activities closely with the State’s HIE activities, the Medi-Cal meaningful use incentive program and other relevant programs including telehealth, broadband and workforce initiatives 11

  12. Centralized oversight with decentralized services REC Critical Components 12

  13. ONC to release Meaningful Use definition and CMS to issue proposed rule by end of December 2009 • 60 day public comment period • First round of administrative HIT payments could be released in Q1 2010 Overall Timeline State HIE Grant Application Anticipated Project Start Date Final Rule issued on Meaningful Use Anticipated Award Announcements ONC releases State HIE Procurement Letter of Intent due 5pm EST on Sept 11th Earliest Medicare payments will be made available Application due by 5pm EST on October 16th ONC to issue guidance on EHR loan program; ONC to craft Meaningful Use definition Regional Extension Center Application Full applications due by Nov 3rd Full applications due by Aug 3rd Full applications due by March 2nd Preliminary applications under 2nd cycle due by Dec 22nd Preliminary applications under 1st cycle due by Sept 8th Preliminary applications under 3rd cycle due by June 1st ONC releases REC Procurement Awardee Selection Awardee Selection Awardee Selection 13

  14. …A Foundation for Health Reform “…investments in electronic records and preventive care are just preliminary steps. They will only make a dent in the epidemic of rising costs in this country… But what accounts for the bulk of our costs is the nature of our health care system itself – a system where we spend vast amounts of money on things that aren't making our people any healthier; A system that automatically equates more expensive care with better care… Health care reform is the single most important thing we can do for America's long-term fiscal health..” Barack Obama, Speaking to the American Medical Association, June 15, 2009 14

  30. NASA’s Mission to the Moon “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win.” - John F. Kennedy, Rice University, Houston Texas, May 25, 1962 30

  31. “The power of space was to raise our aspirations to those things that are possible, IF WE WILL COMMIT.” A Final Word -NASA flight director Eugene F. Kranz Mr. Kranz is not just making a statement. He’s asking a question — Will we commit? 31
