    • 3. What are the consequences of such fragmented care?
    • 4. Example 1. Patient Safety • Studies done since the 1970's have shown the high incidences of medical errors and deaths resulting from them. • The Harvard Medical Practice Study (1991) estimated iatrogenic injury contributed to 180,000 deaths in US annually, more recent figures suggest 98,000. • A recent study suggested that 17% of hospitalized patients are the victim of an error • Yet, today only 3% of physicians believe that medical errors are a principal health concern. There is more concern with car accidents!
    • 5. Comparisons
    • 6. Alarming Medical Safety Stats • The total number of medical errors and deaths equals three jumbo jets crashing every 2 days (note in 1998 no domestic airline fatalities) • The error rate of ICU's (Intensive Care Units) 1.7% would be like the post office losing over 16,000 pieces of mail every hour of every day. • Or like our banks wrongly cashing 32,000 checks every hour of every day, every year! • 7,000 patients die each year because of sloppy handwriting. • 7.5 million unnecessary medical and surgical procedures are performed annually. • More than half of the U.S. population has received unnecessary medical treatment.
    • 7. Now for the Good News • There is a way to reform the health system to create a high quality, low cost system that fair and equitable for all citizens. • A proper system of Chronic Disease Management is central to this process. • 2. Principles: 1. Align all funding and payment incentives to encourage integrated care of chronic disease: Centralize when necessary; decentralized when possible. 2. Promote value conscious consumption of HC. Provide quality, cost effective, transparent care backed by evidence and outcomes.
    • 8. Objective of Quality and Clinical Care Directorate & the National Programmes Dr. Barry White
    • 9. What is the mission of the Directorate of Quality & Clinical Care? • Better care and better use of resources • If patients get the right treatment we can save lives and money
    • 10. 2. Why take a programmatic approach to change? •The advantages of developing chronic disease management programs are: – Structured approach – Change is led by experienced clinicians. – Generates clinical buy-in and ownership from the start – Engages Colleges and professional bodies. – Enables greater organisational responsiveness i.e. frontline staff can access the top of the organisation in one step via the national lead. – Sustained focus
    • 11. 4. What are the clinical programs & initiatives? • 2. Chronic disease management programs – Stroke – Acute coronary syndrome – Heart failure – Asthma/COPD – Diabetes – Epilepsy – Mental health • 3. Outpatient management programs – Dermatology – Neurology – Rheumatology – Orthopaedics • 4. Emergency function related programs – Acute Medicine – Elective surgery – Diagnostic Imaging – Care of the elderly • 5. Key Quality Safety and Risk initiatives – Governance – Underperforming clinician process – Patient safety bundles – Incident reporting – Audit • 6. Other Clinical program areas – Obstetrics – Paediatrics – ICU – HCAI – Palliative care – Neurorehab • 7. Enabling programmes – Development of a resource allocation model – Pharma strategy – Implementation of Clinical Directorates – Defining a standard approach to delivering change 1.PrimaryCarePro
    • 12. 4. Overall principles • Set goals that achieve gains in cost, quality, access and compliance • Set goals that are simple and meaningful – e.g. prevent 300 stroke deaths • Target what is achievable • Nationalise existing local good practice - do not reinvent the wheel • Ensure local ownership (authority, accountability and responsibility) • Ensure patient involvement
