Transcript of "Three Confluence Deployments That Will Blow You Away"

  1. 1. Three Confluence Deployments That Will Blow You Away Connie Taylor of Premier Inc Nate Nash of BearingPoint Tim Colson of Cisco
  2. 2. Everyone loves babies (and puppies) 1
  3. 3. Who Is Premier? Premier is bringing nationwide knowledge to improve local healthcare Local healthcare Shared goals: Better outcomes Safely reducing cost Owners Affiliates National alliance Perinatal Initiative •  Owned by 200+ not-for-profit hospitals and health systems •  Serving more than 2,000 hospitals and 50,000 other providers •  Sharing of clinical, labor and supply chain data for performance improvement •  $31 billion in group purchasing volume •  Recipient of 2006 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award •  Together with our member healthcare providers, Premier’s core purpose is “to improve the health of communities.” 2
  4. 4. The Premier Perinatal Safety Initiative A 21 month collaboration of 17 hospital systems nation-wide seeking to improve perinatal patient outcomes, while improving provider communication, culture of safety, and patient satisfaction. The Objectives • To develop, implement, and measure best practices designed to improve reliability of clinical quality and improve patient outcomes in labor and delivery. • To facilitate the spread of improved healthcare delivery processes • To lower costs for the hospital and the patient Expected Results • Improve healthcare team work and team communication • Reduce birth trauma and maternal trauma • Obtain measurable improvement in staff culture of safety • Increase consistent use of evidence-based protocols and best • practices in the perinatal area, as appropriate • Improve and measure clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction in labor and delivery • Lower the cost of care and potential liability exposure 3
  5. 5. Why Is Premier Doing this? Birth Trauma: Low Frequency BUT High Severity Problem   A “blind spot” to the need for quality improvement may arise due to the low number of adverse outcomes* •  5 birth related injuries per 1,000 deaths •  1 bad brachial plexus injury per 33 years of practice (assuming 140 deliveries per year by physician) •  1 hypoxia-related case of Cerebral Palsy per 48 years   Even one birth related injury or death has significant impact on all involved. •  Victims and families •  Clinical care providers •  Legal consequences •  Insurers •  Public assistance resources   OB claim payments and costs are the highest of all specialties.** •  $2.8 billion paid OB claims (1985-2005)-23% of total payouts •  Highest average loss of any specialty at $711,845 •  Malpractice insurance costs rank first or second highest •  Median birth injury loss $2.5 million vs. $1.18 million all others *Journal of Maternal-Fetal and Neonatal Medicine 2003. 13:203 **Physician Insurers Association of America Data Sharing Report 10/31/06 4
  6. 6. Premier Perinatal Safety Initiative Components Goals Create High Increase Patient Reduce Reduce Harm Reliability Centered Care Costs Perinatal Units Best Practices Care Bundles Shoulder Risk (Induction, Augmentation, Dystocia Management Devices) (1st 48 hours response) Foundational Concepts Situational “Quality Reliable Awareness Team Cost Analysis EFM Basics” Metrics Building & & Critical (Supply Chain, LOS, (Common (Reliability and Data Events Training Claim/Legal) Interpretation and Concepts, Communication Communication) PDCA model) Development (Simulation & Debriefing) 55
  7. 7. So where does Confluence come in? Reliable •  Premier needed a technology Team Building & Metrics platform to support the foundation Communication and Data Development of the Perinatal Safety Initiative. •  The solution was needed within four months of launching the initiative and at a low cost. •  Premier was already using Confluence (and Jira) internally for software development teams to share knowledge and manage the software lifecycle. •  After analysis of the business requirements, the Premier IT team determined that Confluence gave us the right platform at the right price to quickly deploy and customize in order to provide the right solution. 6
  8. 8. How did we use Confluence? •  Confluence is used to enable the participating hospitals to engage in online discussion, share best practices, and collect and report on a set of key OB metrics. •  We created a “global” space for all hospitals to share information and individual “team” spaces for hospitals to share information within their own teams •  Premier partnered with Customware Inc to create a theme that would support the usability and navigation requirements of our users. •  Premier internal development created a metrics collection, repository, and reporting capability that is tightly integrated with Confluence. 7
  9. 9. The Techie Details •  Deployed on Confluence 2.6 in February 2008 and migrated to 2.9 in January 2009. •  Built a Java application for the metrics collection and reporting leveraging the confluence security schema: –  Decreased implementation time –  Simplified maintenance and administration •  Protected both the Confluence application and the reports application with Premier’s standard single sign on tool. –  Used the Seraph project as a great way to tie in our technology stack. •  We were able to use a lot of the plugins within the community to enhance our site - the Calendar, Blogging, Reporting plugin, Rate Macro. •  We have a number of custom user macros to control common display options such as footers, help sections, and some common dynamic navigation items. 8
  10. 10. The Demo https://communities.premierinc.com/ 9
  11. 11. What’s Next? •  After the launch of the Perinatal Safety Initiative Premier has created additional customer facing communities to support our company goal of “improving the health of communities.” •  Need to continue to explore how we can improve the usability of the communities for our non-technical users. •  Providing more usage metrics for the business to assist in improving content and increasing site traffic. •  Working towards integrating Confluence with our customer application portal built on LifeRay to also increase usage of the site. 10
  12. 12. Lessons Learned •  Some healthcare professionals may not have email addresses. •  Some IT folks are now experts on the birthing process. •  LDAP integration had some limitations regarding the ability to edit profile information. •  We are now trying to use the Remote API for our portal integration and have concerns about its usefulness. 11
