    7. 7. Social Network Analysis Reveals communicative patterns of complex groups and teams  Identifies the strength and frequency of connections (e.g., with whom and how often do you communicate about reducing MRSA)  Describes current network in general & MRSA Bundle implementation in particular  Tool for Implementation & Spread
    8. 8. Example – Before – Montana Hospital Obvious clusters, not well integratedCore not denseenough Core not diverse – too small
    9. 9. Example – After – Montana Hospital Core is much more denseCore is more Still room fordiverse – more improvement…departments androles present

    12. 12. Strategies from Regenstrief ConferenceComplex Adaptive Systems -Conceptual framework of complexity dynamics and complexFramework adaptive systems. -Ground quality improvement strategies in a theoretical perspective that views primary care practices as dynamic complex adaptive systemsFostering Organizational -Conceptualize organizations as a series of conversations.Redesign -The creation of healthy work cultures depends upon communication, teamwork, trust and partnerships. -Enhance the quality of listening, to foster openness and trustAppropriate Performance -Develop new approaches to evaluation of the performanceMeasures and Incentives measurement system. -Develop new measures to identify and address gaps in the current system.Continuous Learning -End-users need to make the research ―right‖ for their context—Organizations customize guidelines for local use. -Continuous learning organizations set measurable targets for change, assess progress and provide feedback to stakeholders.Integrating Health Information -The implementation of evidence-based tools, resources andand Communication information systems at the point of care.Technologies -The use of telemedicine/Personal Health Records to improve access to care and improve health outcomes. Doebbeling & Flanagan, Medical Care (in revision, 2011)
    13. 13. Related Research QuestionsComplex Adaptive Systems Framework -What organizational change strategies are based on complexity science principles? -How do they create and sustain change? -What characteristics foster using a complexity science perspective in transformation efforts?Fostering Organizational redesign -What organization redesign strategies facilitate the creation of healthy work cultures? -How can implementations be tailored to suit different organizations and patient populations?Appropriate Performance Measures and Incentives -What performance measures/incentives encourage collaboration and coordinated care among providers? -How can performance measurement be more dynamic to continually adapt to healthcare changes?Continuous Learning Organizations -What barriers and facilitators exist for end-users to customize guidelines for use? -What strategies and investments work best for continuous learning organizations?Integrating Health Information and Communication -What type of health information promotesTechnologies collaboration between patient and provider? -What health information innovation development implementation strategies influence uptake?

    24. 24. DELIVERY SYSTEM FOAs1. RFA 10-012 -- Comparative Effectiveness Delivery System Evaluation Grants – R01 (Michael Harrison) Research on existing designs or redesigns (interventions) in payment, reporting, and organization of care delivery CER= compare alternative designs or redesigns; compare one redesign to status quo accepted as current policy2. RFA 10-013 Comparative Effectiveness Delivery System Demonstration Grants – R18 (Michael Harrison) (A) Demonstration of redesigns in  primary care  care continuum  payment and reporting (B) Research on implementation and effectiveness of these redesigns3. RFA 10-014 -- Accelerating Implementation of Comparative Effectiveness Findings on Clinical and Delivery System Interventions by Leveraging AHRQ Networks – R18 (Dina Moss)  PURPOSE: Spread of CER findings by leveraging the capacities of multi- stakeholder or multi-site networks: Goal is implementation of existing evidence, not creation of new evidence  Reporting of progress in achieving project goals is required – evaluation is not; Evaluation to be conducted by external contractor.
    25. 25. Delivery System Evaluation FOA10-012. Delivery System Evaluation Grants – R01 (a.k.a. ―Evaluation grants‖) (Harrison) Evaluate ability of alternative system designs, change strategies, and interventions to enhance system performance (quality, efficiency, etc.); evaluate applicability of change strategies across diverse settings. 3-year projects with no extensions $7 million allocated for 6-10 awards Support Contractor -- Econometrica with sub to Booz Allen for portal 6 funded

    30. 30. Nation-wide Adoption of EHR  There is critical nation-wide need to improve health care services while reducing cost  Federal goal is 50% EPR adoption by private clinics and hospitals by 2016  Current adoption is ~ 14% for private hospitals and clinics  Private providers have serious concerns about:  steep start-up cost  rejection by physicians  unknown, sustained overhead for training, tech support, etc.  disruption of health care workflows
