    • 4. National eHealth Initiatives Who are the Leaders On the world stage both New Zealand and Canada are definitely seen as leaders in ehealth!
    • 5. National eHealth Initiatives Providing Leadership is more Relevant
      • Sharing Knowledge and Expertise
      • National models for health and ehealth; architecture and standards; approaches used to deploy ehealth solutions; outcomes achieved
      • Private Sector Leadership
      • Specific solutions: ex. Orion, HealthLink, IntraHealth, HealthPhone
      • New product development: ex. middleware (HIAL), chronic disease management, wait times, home monitoring, patient solutions
      • Global eHealth Collaboration
      • public, private and NGO sectors
      • the Commonwealth
      • Globally
      For us, leadership is about …. learning from each other…. and b ringing together developing and developed nations to strengthen and accelerate the ehealth agenda worldwide
    • 6. National eHealth Initiatives Two Basic Flavours
      • Telehealth (Telemedicine)
        • Has been in play for about 15 years
        • Affordable; mature technology; easy to implement; but, poor interoperability
        • Currently a focus in developing nations
        • For example, India is rapidly deploying telemedicine services both within the country and also to African nations. Within the next 5 years they will likely have the largest telemedicine network in the world
      1
    • 7. National eHealth Initiatives Two Basic Flavours
        • Electronic health record
        • Has been in play for about 10 years; major increase in activity in the last 5 years
        • Expensive; less mature technologies; difficult to implement; good (not excellent) interoperability
        • Currently a focus in developed nations
        • For example, the NHS in England is implementing an electronic health record for its 52 million residents
      2
    • 8. National eHealth Initiatives Electronic Health Records – the Vision An electronic health record is a secure and private lifetime record of an individual’s health and care history, available electronically to authorized health providers. … . To date the global focus has been on automating paper records, a first step in modernizing healthcare
    • 9. National eHealth Initiatives Electronic Health Records – the Promise
      • Increased patient participation in care
      • Well-managed chronic illness
      • Improved access to care in remote and rural communities
      • Fewer adverse drug events
      • Better prescribing practices
      • Reduction in duplicate or unnecessary tests
      • Reduced wait times
      • Saving lives
      … . A utomating paper records, with a “Generation 2 EHR” …. is a long way from fulfilling the promise
    • 10. National eHealth Initiatives Electronic Health Records – the Technologies Enablers The Foundation Generation 1 Functionality and Value Chain Optimization Includes investments to support project management, user-adoption, change management, knowledge transfer, standards and benefits evaluation, representing 30% of program investments overall GARTNER Generation Model The Documenter Generation 2 The Helper Generation 3 The Mentor Generation 4
    • 11. Gartner “Hype” Cycle Visibility Technology Trigger Peak of Inflated Expectation Trough of Disillusionment Slope of Enlightenment Plateau of Productivity Maturity
    • 12. National eHealth Initiatives Electronic Health Records – 2 Starting Points
      • Physician Office Centric
        • Leverage a high level of physician office system automation
        • Provide electronic diagnostic data (e.g. laboratory) to physicians through their EMR
        • Through point to point custom interfaces
        • Examples – Denmark, Netherlands, New Zealand
      1 Lab Radiology Hospital GP Specialist
    • 13. National eHealth Initiatives Electronic Health Records – 2 Starting Points
      • Hospital Centric
        • Leverage a high level of hospital system automation
        • Provide electronic diagnostic data to clinicians through their hospital information system
        • Point to point custom interfaces
        • Examples – USA, Canada
      2 Lab GP Pharmacy Hospital Hospital
    • 14. National eHealth Initiatives Electronic Health Records – Why was North America Different?
    • 15. National eHealth Initiatives Electronic Health Records – The Evolution From Data Exchange To Data Sharing … . Data exchange works well up to a point, then it becomes too expensive to maintain and impossible to scale nationally
    • 16. National eHealth Initiatives Electronic Health Records – The Evolution … . Regardless of the starting point or the path being currently taken we are all striving to reach the same end point …… an interoperable electronic health record
    • 17. National eHealth Initiatives Electronic Health Records – the Evolution … . The evolution to an interoperable electronic health record is a major exercise in CHANGE
    • 18. National eHealth Initiatives The Steps to Manage Change Kotter “ Leading Change ” Harvard Business Review
    • 19. National eHealth Initiatives The Change Tools Christensen et al “ Tools of Cooperation and Change ” Harvard Business Review
      • Power Tools
      • No agreement on what is required or how to do it - financial incentives, nurturing, persuasion, coercion, threat, controls
      • Leadership Tools
      • Agreement on what’s wanted, but not on how to do it - common vision, charisma, salesmanship, role modeling, negotiation
      • Management Tools
      • Agreement on how to do things but not on what is needed – governance, planning, training, standard operating procedures and measurement systems
      • Culture Tools
      • Agreement on both what is needed and how to do it – strategic planning, democracy, tradition, strong culture, self management

    • 47. Leadership
    • 48. Leadership – Building Commitment
      • 1990’s – “ everyone was doing their own thing ”
      • 1997 - Alberta we//net the first provincial ehealth network
      • 1998 – Federal Minister of Health Canada Health Infoway Report
      • 2000 – Pan-Canadian Health Infostructure Tactical Plan
      • 2000 – National Health Accord
            • $500 million for electronic health records
            • Canada Health Infoway
      … . acceleration of the ehealth agenda in Canada did not occur until all the 14 Governments agreed that it was a national priority
    • 49. Leadership – Policy
      • The 2000 Health Accord made health information technology a joint government policy direction
      • Provinces made ehealth a formal policy imperative
          • By 2008 every Albertan will have an electronic health record – then Premier Hon. Ralph Klein
      • The Federal Government has linked increases in ehealth funding to major policy initiatives over the past 7 years
      … . An explicit link to government policy has been critical to trigger the continued flow of funding for ehealth initiatives
    • 50. Leadership - Funding
      • Since 2001 the Federal Government has provided $1.6 B in capitalization
        • $500M: Electronic Health Records (2001)
        • $600M: Electronic Health Records and Telehealth (2003)
        • $100M: Health Surveillance Systems (2004)
        • $400M: Electronic Health Records and Wait Time Systems (2007)
      • Spans two different federal government regimes
      • The funding commitment from the provincial and territorial governments in a co-investment model took longer
      • The total spend today by all governments is over $3 B
      … . Without $1.6 B in new federal government funding everyone would have continued to do their own thing
    • 51. Leadership – Governance
      • The Federal Government = accountable spend
      • Provinces and Territories = shared governance
      • … . the result was ….
      • Canada Health Infoway
      • Independent, not-for-profit corporation
      • Equally accountable to 14 F/P/T governments; the Members
      • Independent Board of Directors appointed by the Members
        • mix of public and private sector representatives
        • public sector representatives are regionally focused
        • private sector representatives are from finance, information technology and clinical backgrounds
      … . The shared governance model has been key to ensuring the ongoing agreement and collaboration among all 14 governments “ If you’re looking for a template for an extremely successful national initiative, you’d look to Infoway .” Deputy Minister of Health
    • 52. Leadership – Vision and Goal
      • Vision
      • A high-quality, sustainable and effective Canadian healthcare system supported by an infostructure that provides residents of Canada and their healthcare providers timely, appropriate and secure access to the right information when and where they enter into the healthcare system. Respect for privacy is fundamental to this vision
      • Goal
      • By 2010 every province and territory will benefit from new ehealth systems that will modernize their healthcare system.
      • By 2010, 50 percent of Canadians will have an electronic health record
      … . The 50% goal statement has been the call to action for the country and continues to “focus the effort”
    • 53. Approach
    • 54. Approach – Investment Model Funder Intervener Developer
      • Invests with Partners
      • Involved in project planning
      • Monitors progress of projects and quality of deliverables
        • ► Gated funding approach allows management of risk
      “ Work alongside & take over if needed”
      • Invests with partner
      • Involved with partner in planning, and execution
      • Ensures success through ongoing, active participation or intervention when something goes wrong
      “ Fund & ignore”
      • Grants funding
      • Is uninvolved in project execution
      • Checks on status of phase-based deliverables
      Strategic Investor Infoway also provides leadership, expertise and pan Canadian services to support EHR deployment across Canada .…. The strategic investor model is at the heart of ensuring an accountable health IT spend – a very different funding approach “ Lead, invest, advise & monitor” “ Write code & build modules”
      • Invests independently
      • Engages potential partners in needs analysis and testing
      • Aims for speed and success by working without a partner or on behalf of a future partner
    • 55. Approach – Investment Model
    • 56. Approach – Investment Model
    • 57. Approach – Investment Model $1,2 B in approved projects to date; 150 active projects with 20% in planning and 80% in implementation/adoption .…. A standard investment model reduced any debate about the total cost of a project and which costs were eligible for reimbursement
    • 58. Approach – Investment Model .…. Gated Funding and 50% of the investment for system adoption introduced a new level of accountability for health IT projects Implementation Adoption 30% on Implementation gates 20% on contract signing 50% on adoption gates Approved Project Completed Project Infoway co-invests with jurisdictions at 75:25 of eligible project capital costs. Jurisdictions pay for the operating costs
    • 59. Approach – Engagement Approach Partnership built on Collaboration
      • Shared governance – represented by the federal, provincial and territorial governments
      • Pan-Canadian approach – a common national direction, leveraging investments and replicating solutions but with local flexibility
      • Collaboration – working together with jurisdictions to plan and implement a pan-Canadian health infostructure
      • Sharing of cost and risk – co-investing with jurisdictions in the successful modernization of health information technology across Canada
      • Benefits driven – clearly demonstrating what was achieved for the investment
      .…. The collaboration model we deployed was founded on strong working relationships built up over 20 years
    • 60. Approach – Engagement Approach The Infoway Team .…. The culture of collaboration requires continual interaction and communication directed toward achieving a successful outcome ….. spiced with a little bit of humour
    • 61. Approach – Engagement Approach …. But We Found it was a Rough World out There! Show me the money!! Why is it taking so long?!? What are you doing?!
    • 62. .…. When we realized they weren’t really up on Monty Python we turned to football …. The North American variety Approach – Engagement Approach The Infoway Team
    • 63. .…. So now its all about scoring touchdowns and celebrating success - together! Approach – Engagement Approach A Collaborative Culture
    • 64. Approach – Priorities & Plans
      • 3-Year Jurisdiction Plans
      • Infoway wanted a commitment to the national ehealth agenda
      • The jurisdictions wanted an Infoway commitment to future funding, knowing that Infoway did not have all the $ to complete the job
      • Rolling 3-year plans resulted in
        • Agreement on a high-level plan to implement an EHR
        • Commitment of “notional funding” if plan is implemented
        • Identification of the jurisdictions share of total funding to get approved from their Treasury
      .…. Three-Year planning focused the priorities, reduced financing uncertainty and placed a competitive pressure on Treasury Boards to finance their share – “ Snooze you Lose! ”
    • 65. Approach – Priorities & Plans
      • Vision 2015
      • The country wanted to agree on priorities beyond just the implementation of an electronic health record
      .…. The 2015 Vision has bought agreement as to what the next steps will be in Canada, beyond electronic health records
    • 66. Approach – Architecture
      • Common architecture accepted by jurisdictions and vendors
      • links local clinical systems with jurisdiction and regional registries and repositories using a data sharing approach
      • serves as a reference model for Infoway investments
      • Freely available on the Infoway website
      • http://www.infoway-inforoute.ca
      .…. A single architecture for the country was the first “rallying point” that Infoway used to get all the jurisdictions to agree on implementing a pan-Canadian health infostructure

    • 69.
      • Infoway Standards Collaborative ; a single national group for standards development, support and maintenance
      • Standards necessary to allow data and document sharing – for example, HL7 CCOW, HL7 v2.4, HL7 v3, HL7 CDA
      • International propagation of the standards developed in Canada
      • Infoway investments require standards compliance
      Messaging HL7 and DICOM are the primary standards for the electronic exchange of clinical and administrative data Terminologies LOINC and SNOMED CT are the primary terminologies for coding of clinical information Interoperability Profiles Define functional behaviours of components of the EHR system .…. Consolidating the ehealth standards function into a single organization involving all stakeholders has accelerated this agenda Approach – Standards Ensuring Interoperability and Privacy
    • 70. Approach – Standards The Global Standoff .…. The Standards Challenge …. how do we get the USA and the major POS vendors to support the standards being implemented in the rest of the world … the next item on our Change Agenda HL7 v3 HL7 v2.x

    • 74. Management – Project Management
      • Large, Complex, Interdependent Projects
      • Project sizing and costing
      • Project management discipline
      • Collaborative Risk Management
      • Standard risk assessment approach
      • Project, jurisdiction and national risk
      • Instil a culture of risk reporting/mitigation
      • Quality Management
      • Processes, Tools -> Consistent deliverables best practices and lessons learned
      • Conformance testing and certification
      .…. Instilling a best practice project management discipline is a major and ongoing challenge through implementation
    • 75. Management – Procurement Aggregated Demand and Preferred Pricing Agreements .…. A major change in the way ehealth procurements were conducted in Canada resulting in significant financial benefits
    • 76. Management – Human Resources
      • Capacity
      • 2006 Conference Board of Canada study - 17,000 new IT jobs
      • Tightening for some key resources – project managers. architects, change personnel
      • Tightening in some geographies
      • Increased use of near-shore and off-shore resources starting to occur
      • Capability
      • Increased use of private sector resources
      • Experience and capability of some resource types is mixed
      .…. Implementing multiple, large, complex, interdependent ehealth projects in a fairly short time frame is challenging most jurisdictions’ capability to deliver successfully
    • 77. Management – EHR Solution Deployment Prime Vendors
      • 24 product and services vendors are dominating the investments to date
      • 54% (13) are US vendors; 25% (6) Canadian; the remainder 21% (5) are from Belgium, Bermuda, Japan, Netherlands and New Zealand
      • 75% publicly traded companies and 25% are privately held
      .…. Creating a culture that supports replicated COTS solutions as a way to reduce risk and cost has been a major change

    • 81. Management – Change Management At a National and Jurisdiction Level … . Clinician leadership is now happening with excellent support from the professional associations …. but we have a long way to go
      • Clinician Leadership
      • The active engagement of colleges and professionals associations in promoting the ehealth agenda
      • Funding regional peer to peer networks to champion and support electronic health record implementation
      • Invest in up to 75 demonstration sites, including documented case studies across Canada where users can see the electronic health record in use and interact with the clinicians using it
      • Education and Training
      • Work with universities and colleges to develop new curricula to advance the education and training of clinicians in ehealth
    • 82. Management – Change Management At the Local Level within a Project … . In general, c hange management knowhow, experience, best practices and learnings are currently not at a level that can support the amount of change required – more focus needed

    • 86. Management – Privacy Infoway’s Approach to Privacy
      • Require every project that involves personal health information to conduct a privacy impact assessment (PIA)
      • PIA to be approved by jurisdiction privacy commissioners
      • Provided a privacy and security architecture
      • Contribute to legislative reviews
      • Encourage action in relation to governance of health records
      • Continue to monitor public attitudes
      • Be transparent with privacy commissioners and the public

    • 87.
      • Multi-faceted audience segments
      • Within the health care industry
      • The general public
        • Until recently, our focus was on first group (trade journals, conferences, ehealth showcase, website, e-newsletters)
        • As implementation occurs, promoting success stories takes on increasing prominence
        • This facilitates greater pursuit of mainstream audiences who ultimately influence first group (newspaper, radio, TV)
      • Media momentum
