  • Need a point of entry for application at RIDOH. Need a staff person to provide preliminary review. Special panel is appointed by Director. Suggested profile as above. Some consideration should be made for the State to purchase 2 signs for each community.
  • Transcript

    • 1. David B. Hiltz, NREMT-P American Heart Association Translating Science into Action: Using Population and Criteria-based Incentive Programs to Advance Systems Change and Chain of Survival Priorities
    • 2. Conflict of Interest Disclosure
      • Commercial/industry
        • Full-time employment by the American Heart Association
      • Potential intellectual conflicts
        • Full-time employment by the American Heart Association
    • 3. Objectives
      • Discuss the rationale for addressing acute event and SCA
      • Visit current recommendations regarding acute event and SCA
      • Review the history of HEART Safe
      • Discuss adapting HEART Safe to address system change and COS priorities
    • 4. BIG Issues
      • CVD-SCA is number one killer
      • 220,000 to 335,00 OOH SCA each year
      • 70-80% occur in/around home
      • 95% death rate
      • Not a reportable cause of death:
      • National Center for Vital Statistics
    • 5. Other Issues
      • VERY few get bystander CPR
      • Fewer get good CPR
      • Less than one-third of kids get CPR before EMS
      • Large numbers of
      • people will die this
      • year from SCA
    • 6. Recommendations
      • “Community Coronary Care Units”
      • Organized response to emergencies
      • EMD
      • Citizen CPR
      • Early defibrillation
      • Effective BLS and ACLS
      • Early detection of ACS
      • Early definitive intervention
    • 7.
      • Lay responder defibrillation significantly increases
      • survival after cardiac arrest if the program is able to
      • defibrillate prior to EMS arrival and the PAD
      • emergency response plan is effectively
      • implemented and sustained.
    • 8.  
    • 9.  
    • 10. Translating Science Into Action
      • We have evidence based guidelines
      • We have excellent training programs
      • We have top notch instructors
      • “Top down” strategies DO NOT WORK
      • Local situations
      • require local solutions
    • 11. Changing Behavior
      • Commercial marketing expensive and often ineffective
      • Social marketing experience is good
      • Incentive change methods offer a less expensive option
    • 12. Disclaimer
      • This presentation will discuss incentivizing and guiding implementation of strategies to save lives.
      • The intent HEART Safe is to permit the evolution of funding sources at the community level.
    • 13. Emergency Medical Care Advisory Board –EMCAB-
      • The board advises the DPH/OEMS on the development of EMS policy
      • Established by statute
      • Appointed by Commissioner
      • Key stakeholders
      • Chapter 111C: Section 13 EMS system advisory board; membership;
      • duties; advisory committees
    • 14. HEART Safe History Howard Koh, MD,MPh Former Public Health Commissioner Now Director , Division of Public Health Practice Harvard University
    • 15. Charge by Koh to PIER Committee of EMCAB
      • “Develop a program to increase awareness
      • regarding CPR and early defibrillation and
      • improve survival in all communities”
      No problem!
    • 16. Oh…and no, there isn’t any funding
    • 17. ~Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead
      • “ Somebody has to do something, and it’s just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.”
      Mike and David
    • 18. Mike and David
    • 19. HEART Safe Community
      • A population and criteria based incentive program designed to advance systems change and chain of survival priorities.
    • 20. HEART Safe Community
      • Get credit or earn points in the form of Heartbeats for specific activities relating to the designed criteria.
      • The number of Heartbeats required is specific to both the activity and the population base.
    • 21.  
    • 22. Population Based
      • Up to 5,000 population: 40 heartbeats
      • 5,001 – 30,000 population: 50 heartbeats
      • 30,001 – 50,000 population: 60 heartbeats
      • 50,001 – 100,000 population: 70 heartbeats
      • 100,001 – 150, 000 population: 80 heartbeats
      • 150,001 population or more: 90 heartbeats
    • 23. Criteria Based
      • Conduct community CPR training sessions.
      • All EMS first response-designated vehicles* have been equipped with AEDs
      • Placement of a permanent AED with AED-trained personnel in public or private areas
      • Advanced Cardiac Life Support (paramedics) *  
      • An ongoing process to evaluate and improve the “Chain of Survival”in the community.

    • 58. Benefits
      • Low cost mechanism for the advancement of efforts to reduce disability and death from SCA and other cardiovascular emergencies.
      • Improved dialog with community leaders and stakeholders.
      • Visibility for the DOH/DPH at the community level across State.
      • Use a previously and proven program.
      • Platform for other DOH/DPH efforts and programs.
    • 59. Where is the DATA?
      • We are certain that this is changing behavior
      • NEMSIS data set implementation will provide additional insight and validation
      • Until then, we believe that the absence of hard data should not stand in the way of a perfectly good idea!
    • 60. So David, How Can We Do This?
      • Identify what the issues are, or more appropriately design the collective vision for YOUR ultimate community based coronary care unit.
      • Use existing resources to package.
      • Form alliance with your State or local board of health.
      • JUST DO IT!
