  • 3. Cost Considerations in Care Coordination Rainu Kaushal, MD, MPH Center for Healthcare Informatics and Policy, Weill Cornell Medical College With expertise in quality, patient safety, and health information technology, Dr. Kaushal will discuss measuring the effects of health IT on health care quality and costs with a view toward optimizing the value of health care in the current environment. Examples will be presented from recent empirical studies of different technologies and models of healthcare delivery, including EHRs, HIE, and PCMH. Care Coordination in the Era of Value Based Care Delivery Peter N. Bowers, MD Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Connecticut Care coordination is a necessary, but not sufficient element of value based care delivery. Value based care delivery is defined as higher quality at lower cost and is enabled by care coordination, payment redesign, enhanced access and actionable data at the point of care. The future of accountable care delivery will support team based care with real time data that will shape practice transformation. Our quality measures will advance from process to outcomes measures while simultaneous affordability and sustainability pressures will drive lower cost through greater adoption of transparency tools coupled with value based benefit design. Patient- and family-centered, assessment-driven, team-based activity designed to meet the needs of patients and their families or care givers that addresses interrelated medical, social, developmental, behavioral, educational, and financial needs in order to realize the promise of value based care delivery. Improving Care Coordination with Big Data, Analytics and Technology Paul Brian Contino New York City Health and Hospital Corporation As we rapidly move toward a healthcare landscape with increased EHR adoption and interoperability standards for clinical data exchange, how do we leverage technology and data to effectively impact care coordination and patient engagement. Data Quality and Metrics for Care Coordination [tentative] Craig Jones, MD Vermont Blueprint for Health Medical Informatics Update 2013 Abstracts The Role of Health IT in Integrated Care Nirav R. Shah, MD, MPH New York State Department of Health. Health technology plays a significant role in the evolving health care delivery model, which demands more clinical integration for better care. Dr. Shah will discuss Health IT innovations in New York, and how health IT will improve patient care and support the patient-centered medical home. He will also discuss the State Innovation Model Plan and the federal funds that are helping the state test six new models of care. Integration of Care Coordination and IT in a Multi-Specialty Group Practice Scott D. Hayworth, MD, Alan B. Bernstein, MD, MPH Mount Kisco Medical Group, PC The Mount Kisco Medical Group, PC is a multi-specialty group practice with 300 physicians, 25 office sites and 300,000 patients. The Group currently has contracts involving discrete care coordination functions with three carriers. As a result, the Group has built a care coordination department and utilizes multiple sources of information technology. Based on MKMG experience, we will recommend future needs for IT to assist with our care coordination functions. Serving our Veterans Virtually: Perspectives on VA Telehealth Cathy Cruise, MD VISN 3 Virtual Health and Rehabilitation Programs, Veterans Administration Dr. Cruise will explain how the VA Telehealth Services uses health informatics, disease management and telehealth technologies to target care and case management to improve access to care, improving the health of veterans. Telehealth changes the location where health care services are routinely provided. The value VA derives from telehealth is not in implementing telehealth technologies alone, but how VA uses health informatics, disease management and telehealth technologies to coordinate and manage care, facilitate access to care and improve the health of veterans] Abstracts (cont.)
  • 4. Medical Informatics Update 2013 Panel Presentations Care Coordination in the Region: Clinical Organizations Using Technology to Support Better Care Moderator: Jacqueline Merrill, PhD, MPH, RN; Columbia University Four representatives from practice areas will focus on how clinical information systems are being used in their organizations to address coordination: 1) Within care teams 2) Across care teams 3) Between care teams and community resources 4) For continuous familiarity with patient across time 5) For continuous proactive and responsive action between visits 6) For supporting providers consider the needs, preferences, of patient 7) For shared responsibility-between patient and caregivers The panel will comment on how their organization has handled barriers to effective use of technology, data exchange and/or availability of important information. There will also be opportunity for the audience to ask questions.

  • 9. Posters (cont.) This study explores the impact of electronic based patient engagement tools (kiosks, portals, mobile phones, and clinical decision support alerts) on decision-making, adherence to care plans, and clinical, and financial outcomes. We explore adoption rates, workflow implications, and analytic approaches to predict which tools work best with various populations. Engaging patients to take action through meaningful use of technology is an integral part of health care transformation, contributing to better health, better healthcare, and lower costs. Ginger: Conquering Complex Industry Models with Dictionary Tooling John Timm, Peter Schwarz, Joshua Hui, Sarah Knoop IBM Research – Almaden Information models used in healthcare IT data standards are often quite complex. This presents a challenge to implementers who need to efficiently build applications that produce and consume data according to these models but are not themselves expert in the specific standard used. In this poster, we discuss an approach to bridge this gap. We combine a methodology with software tooling to facilitate the creation of sets of clinical data abstractions that insulate application developers from the inherent complexities and steep learning curve posed by the standards. IBM Big Data Platform for Wellness Haim Nelken IBM Research The estimated global wellness market is 1.9 trillion. In particular, the workplace wellness market is estimated by 2.7-8.2 billion per year. IBM’s mature Big Data, Cloud and Mobile technologies provide the scale and robustness required by wellness solutions. The proposed Wellness platform combines several IBM Big Data products (Big Insights, Streams, Netezza) and Cognos, with innovative wellness accelerators developed by IBM Research. Aging Well – Speeding the Adoption of Ambient Assisted Living Services Haim Nelken IBM Research The increase in life expectancy reinforces the need for smart and innovative services that help elderly people to be self-sustaining as long as possible and maintain a satisfactory quality of life. This emerging market of smart services, known in Europe as Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) services, offers many solutions for disease management, support in daily life activities, wellness and social interactions. AAL services are usually a non-trivial composition of software, hardware and human resources. One of the impediments to the adoption of AAL services is the lack of an economically viable market place for the provisioning of such services. Medical Informatics Update 2013 Posters Targeting and Refining Health Challenges to Improve Medical Adherence Robert Farrell1 , Catalina Danis1 , Shih Ping (Kerry) Chang2 IBM, TJ Watson Research Center1 and Carnegie Mellon University2 Medical providers are increasingly managing patients with chronic disease by applying risk analysis methods to determine the best course of treatment. However, adherence to long-term treatment plans is low (averaging 50% for prescribed medications and 30% for lifestyle changes.) Our approach is to improve adherence through improved patient engagement in health care processes. We are developing a software solution for mounting engaging Health Challenges that help participants set a goal, track their behavior, monitor their progress towards the goal and evaluate the result. Challenges can be targeted to individuals or to groups in a particular demographic or with a particular risk factor. We will use data analytics to refine the mechanics of the challenge to respond better to each individual’s performance. We present observations from a first deployment of the solution in a wellness setting and describe a planned deployment to chronic patients who have been advised to lose weight. Towards Greater Care Coordination: Automatically Identifying Primary Care Providers Hojjat Salmasian, Rimma Pivovarov, Gregory W. Hruby, Daniel G. Fort, Nancy Chang, and David J. Vawdrey Department of Biomedical Informatics, Columbia University Primary care providers (PCPs) can contribute historical context to the hospital team, enhancing continuity of care, if they are notified when their patients are hospitalized. This notification seldom happens, because the PCP is not often identified in the electronic health record. A medical logic module was created to assign PCP status to the author of a PCP-specific encounter note. We interviewed a 15% subset of providers about accuracy of the PCP status for a sample of patients attributed to them. The intervention increased the percentage of clinic visits where a PCP was assigned from approximately 10% to 90%. Among the 22/34 physicians who agreed to be interviewed, PCP status was correct for 408/414 of their patients. An automated method for identifying PCPs based on clinicians’ electronic documentation is the first step in determining which physician to contact for future automated care coordination efforts. Patient Engagement: Measuring Technology Impact on Care Outcomes CPP (M Minniti, D Freed, S Cashon, T Blue); IBM (C Danis, M Ball, R Farrell); Jefferson School of Nursing (R Kennedy, I Hilghman, B Thomas, C Dolan, S Nevins; NSIM (M Miller, S Ballen, A Crimm, Z Font) IBM, Care Partners Plus (CPP) and NSIM (Ninth Street Internal Medicine Associate) It is estimated that patient adherence to long-term medication therapies is in the 40% to 50% range, while estimated rates of adherence to lifestyle-based prescriptions such as increasing exercise and adopting a low-fat diet, range 20% to 30%. Increasingly technology is being used to engage patients; however, there is a paucity of research showing the impact of such technology on patient engagement, adherence to treatment plans and clinical and financial outcomes.
  • 10. The Health Informatics Research Department at IBM is a multi-disciplinary team of scientists with diverse set of skills conducting research in the broad area of health informatics. Its mission is to provide the scientific underpinnings and thought leadership for IBM’s active presence in the area of health informatics. Main focus areas are: • Analytics and Big Data in Healthcare and Life Sciences • Visualization and Decision Support for Healthcare and Life Sciences • Insights-driven Wellness Management Services • Data Integration and Platforms We conduct our research in collaboration with external organizations and are active participants in the scientific community. Our research in the above areas has applications in Care Coordination (providers, payers, governments) and Real World Evidence (pharma) among many others. In Care Coordination we are interested in using advanced analytics and technologies to enable identification of patients/members at risk, devising management plans, identifying the collaborative team to support the patient/member, addressing adherence and compliance with the suggested plans. In the area of Real World Evidence, we use our advanced analytics tools and visual analytics to better explain variation in the population (responders vs. non-responders), exploring hypotheses, and design of adjacent services (insights-driven services health and wellness service design). There are a number of commercial software and services offerings by IBM based on our research. For example see IBM Patient Care and Insights: http://www-01.ibm.com/software/ecm/patient-care/ Organizational Profiles Center for Advanced Information Management 650 West 168th Street, B-130, New York NY 10032 Telephone: 212 305-2944 www.cat.columbia.edu In 1983, New York State established a Center for Advanced Technology (CAT) Program to promote the collaboration between it’s industry base and it’s major research institutions. The goal was to facilitate technology transfer and commercialization using the expertise and resources in academia to benefit companies economically. Currently, the program continues with 15 CATs at 13 institutions located around the state. Each CAT has a specific technology focus (http://www.nystar.state.ny.us/cats.htm) and approach to helping its partner companies. The CAT program is supported by NYSTAR, the New York State Foundation for Science, Technology and Innovation. NYSTAR currently offers a range of programs to help promote the state’s technology base. Columbia University’s Center for Advanced Information Management has been a participant in the CAT program since its inception.
