  • 1. EHRs, PHRs, EMRs: 
 Making Sense of the Alphabet Soup

  • 2. Health & Healthcare Problems •  Cost •  Quality of care •  Consistency of care •  Continuity of care •  Disaster/Emergency response •  Isolated, piecemeal, inaccessible records •  Medical care separated from health, life & prevention
  • 3. Why HealthIT? Health information technology (HIT) allows comprehensive management of medical information and its secure exchange between health care consumers and providers. http://healthit.hhs.gov/
  • 4. HIT has the potential to •  Improve health care quality •  Prevent medical errors •  Increase the efficiency of care provision and reduce unnecessary health care costs •  Increase administrative efficiencies •  Decrease paperwork •  Expand access to affordable care and •  Improve population health http://healthit.hhs.gov/
  • 5. Interoperable HIT can improve Individual Patient Care •  Complete, accurate, and searchable health information, available at the point of diagnosis and care, allowing for more informed decision making …………. •  More efficient and convenient delivery of care, without having to wait for the exchange of records or ….unnecessary tests …. •  Earlier diagnosis and characterization of disease, with the potential to thereby improve outcomes and reduce costs. •  Reductions in adverse events through an improved understanding of each patient’s particular medical history, ………... •  Increased efficiencies related to administrative tasks, allowing for more interaction with ….. patients, caregivers, and clinical care coordinators, and monitoring of patient care.
  • 6. HHS/Health Information Technology http://healthit.hhs.gov
  • 7. Electronic Record Definitions •  Electronic Medical Record (EMR): An electronic record … on an individual… within one health care organization. •  Electronic Health Record (EHR): An electronic record ……..on an individual ………across more than one health care organization. •  Personal Health Record (PHR): An electronic record …….on an individual… managed, shared, and controlled by the individual. Types: Standalone, Tethered, Integrated The National Alliance for Health Information Technology, Report to the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology on Defining Key Health Information Technology Terms” (April 28, 2008; http://www.hhs.gov/healthit/documents/m20080603/10_2_hit_terms.pdf)

  • 10. Key Element of Information Use •  Privacy (protections and regulatory provisions) and other legal and medical legal issues •  Security and Interoperability of systems (so data can be exchanged among various sources and users) •  Incentives (must bring value in some way) •  Convenient •  Robustness (able to acquire easily from all sources) •  Trust (on the part of clinicians & consumers) HP2020, July 16, 2009, K Bell
  • 11. Part Two
  • 12. PH Opportunities in Health Reform •  Increase prevention & wellness, disease management. Modernize disease surveillance/ registries. •  Expand public engagement, participation, and communication through social media, mobile technology and participatory web applications. •  Reduce health disparities. •  Respond to emergencies.
  • 13. The Personal Health Record (PHRs) “Polynomial Heterogeneous Record systems” •  Patient portals to providers’ legal electronic health records •  Vaults, banks, clouds, platforms that collect and store basic health data on an individual from wherever it is available •  Applications that “translate” health data for specific uses •  Flash drives, CD’s, smart cards, other personal devices •  Future?????? One health database per person accessed, added to, and/or used by anyone with patient permission……. HP2020, July 16, 2009, K Bell
  • 14. Who’s Acting?
  • 15. Rapidly Changing Landscape Government Non-profit/ Profit •  HHS – standards,   RWJ & Project Health coordination; ONC/ Design (open-source NHIN(2), HP2020, application ecosystem) NCVHS, meaningful use   CA Health Foundation •  CMS – large-scale PHR   Health Privacy Project pilot (3rd party PHR   Markle Foundation application)   University research •  AHRQ –demonstration/   Patients Like Me guidelines   Personal Health Technology •  NIH – provider systems Council •  VA – My Healthe Vet   Pew Research •  DOD – MiCare pilot   Standards: CCHIT, HL7 – PHR Functional model
  • 16. American Opinion Preferred medium for PHR: High perception of value Ages 45 and Under 79% or more of the public 3% believe using an online PHR 18% would provide major benefits to 33% individuals in managing their health and health care services. 22% June 2008 24% High interest Almost half of the public --46.5%-- say they would be interested in using an online PHR service. This represents about 106 million adults. June 2008 Source: Connecting for Health, Markle Foundation (http://www.connectingforhealth.org/)
  • 17. Ideal PHR Characteristics: 2009 •  Electronic record of health information •  Drawn from multiple sources •  Controlled by the individual •  Data managed, augmented, used, and shared by the individual at his/her discretion HP2020, July 16, 2009, K Bell
  • 18. Where are we today? •  4% of US population are using some sort of electronic means to access and use their own personal health information •  Dominated by “tethered” systems (patient portals into provider controlled EHRs) and employer/payer based systems populated with claims data •  Primary usage driven by transactional processes with providers •  Dominate user: “CMO” of family – middle aged female HP2020, July 16, 2009, K Bell
  • 19. Areas of Interest Cross-cutting EMRs/EHRs •  Public Health alerts •  Unobtrusive decision support •  Registries (with patient education and referral information) •  Health monitoring/tracking •  De-identified surveillance •  Family health history •  Occupation and employer PHRs history •  Risk identification •  Guidelines for correct 3rd party •  Disease management use of information •  Education/guidelines •  Design standards/data fields •  Personalized tailoring •  Data quality, Privacy, Health •  Pets (exposure) literacy •  Opt-in surveys and longitudinal •  Equity/reducing disparities research

  • 23. Definitions •  Portable/Data Portability-- Being able to move data from one database or repository to another. •  Cross-platform-- Developing software for, or running software on, more than one type of hardware platform. The most universal cross- platform application is the Web browser. •  Interoperable--The ability for one system to communicate or work with another.
  • 24. PHRs & Public Health •  Assessment –  Data Collection –  Investigation –  Monitoring/Sentinel Citizen •  Assurance –  Links to resources and services –  Quality Improvement –  Benchmark Health –  Emergency Preparedness •  Policy Development –  Inform, Educate, Empower –  Design considerations •  Research
  • 25. Opportunities For Consumers Public Health •  Prevention • Health status monitoring •  Health promotion • Community problem solving •  Local service referral • Policies and planning • Service links •  Emergency/outbreak information • Inform, educate, empower • Evaluation •  Individual health monitoring & • Research and development benchmarking • Sentinel citizens •  Integrating health into • Other: Equity, health literacy, daily living health status,…….
  • 26. Standards Considerations for PH –  Ability to •  opt-in to receive (personally tailored) prevention materials/messages •  obtain info from cell phone or submit data from cell phone •  choose to be a sentinel citizen--share data one time or ongoing •  Include psychosocial add-on widgets including health risk assessment, pets, occupation/place of employment/years –  Doesn't encourage employers to change insurance annually
