Meaningful Use Stage One, with Certification Meaningful Use Stage One, with Certification Presentation Transcript

  • Meaningful Use Stage One OverviewJessica JacobsDecember 8, 2010
  • (Un)fortunately, It‟s more complicated than pie… Note – I’m not an expert on Meaningful Use – please see http://www.cms.gov/EHRIncentivePrograms for more details!
  • Medicare Clinical CoreHistory v.s. Incentives Certification Quality Summary Objectives Medicaid MeasuresTHE BACK STORY 3
  • It all started with ARRA• The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009 was a part of ARRA Money Talks …• HITECH allocated funds to spur the adoption of electronic health records - approximately $20.8 Billion• While they’re starting with Graph Source: HIMSS Analytics Survey, September 2010, carrots, there will be sticks http://www.himss.org/content/files/vantagepoint/vantagepoin t_201009.asp?pg=1
  • Why “Meaningful Use”?• ARRA gives out money, with some caveats: 1. Use of certified EHR in a meaningful manner 2. Use of certified EHR technology for electronic exchange of health information to improve quality of health care 3. Use of certified EHR technology to submit clinical quality measures (CQM) and other such measures selected by the Secretary [of Health]
  • It‟s more than just the money• Works with other CMS/ONC programs • CMS will distribute funds, ONC will write the rules• Allows for step-wise implementation of EHRs• Will lead to proper use of Health IT and better patient care
  • The Five Pillars of Meaningful Use Ensure Privacy and Security Improve Population Health Improve Safety and Quality Engage Patients and Families Coordinate Care

  • Hospital Incentive Structure• The Money: • Hospitals meeting Medicare MU requirements may be eligible for Medicaid payments• The Timeline: • Medicare: no payments after 2016, Sticks start in 2015 • Medicaid: can’t initiate payments after 2016• The Caveats: – All Medicare Hospitals qualify as Medicaid Hospitals – Hospitals eligible for Medicare dollars may be eligible for Medicaid dollars 17

  • Medicare Clinical CoreHistory v.s. Incentives Certification Quality Summary Objectives Medicaid MeasuresTHE HEART OF IT 21
  • The Core Objectives• You Gotta Have: – Ambulatory Providers = 15 – Hospitals = 14 – All Hospital Criteria Overlap with Ambulatory • the only addition to the ambulatory provider list is e- Prescribing – Most measures must be reported as structured data
  • Core Objectives – Gotta Do „em All Maintain/Record Do/Implement Provide/Report • Maintain an up-to-date • Computerized physician • Report clinical quality problem list of current and order entry (CPOE) (30%) measures to CMS or States active diagnoses (50%) • E-Prescribing (Ambulatory (2011 Attestation, 2012 • Maintain active medication Only, 40%) Electronically) list (80%) • Drug-drug and drug-allergy • Provide Patients with an • Maintain active medication interaction checks (enabled electronic copy of their allergy list (80%) whole period) health information, upon • Record and chart changes • Clinical decision support (1 request (50% within 3 days) in vital signs (50%) rule) • Provide clinical summaries • Record smoking status for • Protect electronic health for patients for each office patients 13 years or older information (whole period) visit/at each discharge (50%) (50% within 3 days) • Record demographics • Capability to exchange key (50%) clinical information among providers of care and patient-authorized entities electronically (perform at least one test)Source: http://healthpolicyandreform.nejm.org/?attachment_id=3742

  • Medicare Clinical CoreHistory v.s. Incentives Certification Quality Summary Objectives Medicaid MeasuresCLINICAL QUALITY MEASURES(CQM) 25
  • Clinical Reporting Measures• Many selected from the Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI) and Pay-for-Performance Initiatives (P4P)* – CMS intends to create an added incentive for EPs to adopt EHRs by leveraging the PQRI measures and eventually integrate both programs. – CMS envisions a single reporting infrastructure for electronic submission in the future, eliminating redundant or duplicative reporting.• The HITECH Act required that in selecting clinical quality measures CMS give preference to those endorsed by the National Quality Forum.* – NQF is a nonprofit organization that ensures clinical quality measures are developed and maintained through a consistent and collaborative process. – All clinical quality measures selected in the final rule are endorsed by NQF.• Number of Measures – EPs – 3 core, 3 pick • If your practice doesn’t have the 3 core to report on (pediatricians don’t have adult weight screenings), then you pick an “alternate” measure to report – Hospitals – 15, all required *Source: http://journal.ahima.org/2010/09/15/clinical-quality-measures-for-providers-3/

  • The Point…• This was only the first stage – Stages Two: expected 2011, menu set becomes core, new parameters, more HIE, device guidelines – Stage Three: expected 2013, likely more patient access• Adjustments are being made by CMS and will be out shortly – Specifically in regard to the controversy surrounding CMS/ONC guidelines (Certification VS Use)• Using Electronic Health Records Meaningfully will (hopefully) lead to: – better clinical outcomes for patients – Less waste – Less fraud and abuse – Better ROI – Reduce health disparities and improve public health – Engage patients and family
