To employers the cost of healthcare is now a business issue and this talk is about what one large buyer IBM did to drive transformation via broad coalition with other large employers to form the Patient Centered Medical Home movement and the covenant between buyer and provider away from the garbage we now buy episodic uncoordinated disintegrated care. In the change of convenient conversation we have worked with the Primary care providers to give us coordinated, integrated, accessible and compressive care with a set of principles know as the Patient centered medical home.

A Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) happens when primary care healers keeping that core healing relationship with their patients step up to become specialists in Family and Community Medicine. The move is to the discipline of leading a team that delivers population health management, patent centered prevention, care that is coordination, comprehensive accessible 24/7 and integrated across a deliver system. PCMH happens when the specialists in Family and Community Medicine wake up every morning and ask the question how will my team improve the health of my community today?

All over the world three huge factors are in play that is driving the concept of Patient Centered Medical Home. They are:

1) Cost and demography
2) Information technology and data (information that is actionable will equal a demand for accountability by the payer or buyer of the care)
3) Consumer demand to engage healthcare differently (at least as well as they can their bank- on line) have a question about lab results why not e-mail?

But at its core it is a move toward integration of a healing relationship in primary care and population management all at the point of care with the tools to do just that.

The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) lies at the center of the effort to get at population health, integrated and coordinated care. PCMH is where the Primary care healer leads an organization that delivers clinician-led primary care, with comprehensive, accessible, holistic, coordinated, evidence-based coordination and management. In the USA this is now the standard in the US Veterans Administration and the US Military. Also, the health care reform law will likely increase the importance of PCMHs in the USA because under the legislation Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) will be created in 2012; ACOs are a combination of primary care, hospitals and specialists tied to a defined population and accountable for the quality, outcomes and cost of health care received by that population and the healer relationship based PCMH is the foundation to care that is accountable.

One key to the new approach is that many are now willing to pay more for primary care - when primary care takes on more responsibility for improving the patient’s health and coordinating health care. There is a good deal of evidence that this approach results in lower hospitalization rates, lower

    Slide From Dr Martin Sepulveda
  • 7. If we truly want to understand costs and where they can be reduced without compromising outcomes, we need to aggregate costs around the patient. (need a place to do that – that is PCMH)
    The way care is currently organized leads to redundant administrative costs, unnecessary and expensive delays in diagnosis and treatment, and unproductive time for physicians.
    A system integrator a place where data is aggregated, understood and held accountable at the level of the individual patient -- THAT IS PCMH.
    In fact, cost reduction will often be associated with better outcomes.

    Slide From Dr Martin Sepulveda
  • 9. OUR IBM Patient needs A long-term comprehensive relationship with a Personal Physician empowered with the right tools and linked to their care team.
  • 10. The Joint Principles: Patient Centered Medical Home
    • Personal physician - each patient has an ongoing relationship with a personal physiciantrained to provide first contact, and continuous and comprehensive care
    • 11. Physician directed medical practice – the personal physician leads a team of individuals at the practice level who collectively take responsibility for the ongoing care of patients
    • 12. Whole person orientation – the personal physician is responsible for providing for all the patient’s health care needs or arranging care with other qualified professionals
    • 13. Care is coordinated and integrated across all elements of the complex healthcare community- coordination is enabled by registries, information technology, and health information exchanges
    • 14. Quality and safety are hallmarks of the medical home-
    Evidence-based medicine and clinical decision-support tools guide decision-making; Physicians in the practice accept accountability voluntary engagement in performance measurement and improvement
    Enhanced access to care is available - systems such as open scheduling, expanded hours, and new communication paths between patients, their personal physician, and practice staff are used
    • Payment appropriately recognizes the added value provided to patients who have a patient-centered medical home- providers and employers work together to achieve payment reform
  • 15. ACO and the Principles of the PCMH
    Whether building a community-wide ACO or a solo primary care practice, adherence to guiding PRINCIPLES provides the foundation. Through the PCMH Joint Principles, we (the buyers and providers) have agreed to change our covenant with one another. The Joint Principles of the PCMH have been agreed on by those who deliver comprehensive care (the primary care providers) and their specialist colleagues. For Accountable Care to achieve its goals, successful organizations will NEED a foundation in these principles.
    As a buyer, I want to be assured that the
    foundation - the principles - are in place:
    a personal relationship with a healer,
    improved access, care that is coordinated,
    integrated, and comprehensive.
  • 16. PCMH is the patients view from the bottom up
    The kind of care they want: relationship, accessible, coordinated
    From the System view it is ACO
    Or, like the Euro tunnel you can start on one side building PCMH
    And the other side ACO, but somewhere you have to meet
    in the middle, where care is delivered- centered on the needs
    of the Patient.

  • 34. New study -- health care costs are swallowing up almost all income gains that Americans have made over the past decade. Studies like this show us again and again, why it is so necessary that we look for ways to control costs while still providing quality care.

  • 36. Coordination -- we do NOT know how to play as a team
    “ We don't have a health care delivery system in this country. We have an expensive plethora of uncoordinated, unlinked, micro systems, each performing in ways that too often create sub-optimal performance, both for the overall health care infrastructure and for individual patients." George Halvorson, from “Healthcare Reform Now
  • 37. “We do kidney transplants and dialysis more often than anyone, but we need to, because patients are not given the kind of coordinated primary care that would prevent chronic complications of renal and heart disease from becoming acute.”

    Oklahoma's patient-centered medical home initiative has reduced Medicaid costs $29 per patient per year from 2008 to 2010. Moreover, use of evidence-based primary care, including screening for breast and cervical cancer, increased.
    The Colorado initiative expanded access to care. Before the initiative, only 20 percent of pediatricians in the state accepted Medicaid; as of 2010, 96 percent and did and at a lower cost to the state.
    Vermont, inpatient care use and related per-person per-month costs decreased 21 percent and 22 percent, respectively, from July 2008 to October 2010. ER use and related per-person per-month costs decreased 31 percent and 36 percent, respectively. 
    Patient Centered Medical Home in Washington in State Acute care spending there was 18 percent below the national average. Inpatient stays per beneficiary were 35 percent below the national average.
    The Bottom Line in Medicaid
    PCMH starting to show an impact in access to care, quality, and cost control.

  • 66. Patients love to see meaningful information about themselves and it take IT tools to
    If you give patients educational materials with their name on it and with their data analyzed in it, they will read it, pour over it and discuss it with you.
    If you tear off a generic sheet and give it to them, it often goes in the waste basket. If you give patients an analysis of their health risk AND if you include a “what if” scenario, i.e., what will their health risk be if they make a change; you can prove to them,
    “if you the healer make a change, it will make a difference to your patient.”
