    6. 6. RPMS/EHR/User Relationships
    7. 7. RPMS/EHR/User Relationships
    8. 9. EHR Milestones and Status <ul><li>RPMS EHR was certified January 2005 </li></ul><ul><li>7 test sites participated in 2004 </li></ul><ul><li>Presently 78 facilities use EHR </li></ul><ul><li>Goal for all Federal sites to be using EHR by end of 2008 </li></ul><ul><li>Tribal sites encouraged to use EHR as well </li></ul>
    9. 10. EHR Sites as of 02/21/07 22 Tribal Health Ctr/Stn 5 Tribal Hospital 30 Federal Health Ctr/Stn 21 Federal Hospital
    10. 11. Advantages of RPMS EHR <ul><li>Retains existing RPMS database </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Users have access to all prior RPMS data </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Same data from EHR and non-EHR sites </li></ul><ul><ul><li>No interfacing or reformatting of data for national exports </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Extensive customizability at local level </li></ul><ul><li>Full integration of RPMS applications </li></ul><ul><li>Very low cost compared to commercial </li></ul><ul><li>Future growth/development </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ongoing partnership with VHA, other developers </li></ul></ul>
    11. 12. How Can EHR Improve Care? <ul><li>Access to Information </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Immediately available, no data entry delay </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Service Unit wide, even satellite clinics </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Legible </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Computerized Order Entry </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Much less chance for error </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Order checks for allergies and interactions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Complete, up to date medication lists </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Reminders, Notifications, and Alerts </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Abnormal lab results </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Screening and interventions that are due </li></ul></ul>
    12. 13. Provider Productivity <ul><li>All sites see a transient decrease in provider productivity (pts/day) at first </li></ul><ul><li>Typically takes 1-3 months to recover to pre-EHR levels </li></ul><ul><li>Mitigate by staggering implementation, either by provider or by function, or both </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiencies in other areas (phone calls, chart reviews) can improve productivity </li></ul>
    13. 14. EHR Creates the Potential to Improve Collections: <ul><li>More complete documentation with templates </li></ul><ul><li>Provider notifications for forgotten POVs or codes </li></ul><ul><li>Superbills, ICD/CPT Pick Lists – easier to find correct codes </li></ul><ul><li>Coding Tools and Training with EHR </li></ul>
    14. 15. Patient Care Metrics <ul><li>Principal reason for EHR – improve patient care </li></ul><ul><li>How do we know we have done that? </li></ul><ul><li>Sites should be identifying important metrics and tracking them </li></ul><ul><li>Ready-made patient care metrics: CRS </li></ul><ul><li>EHR can provide the tools for quality improvement but an active QI program is a must </li></ul>

    25. 26. EHR Planning & Implementation Elapsed time (in months) Please note that this is just a general timeline of how long it might take for your site to implement EHR. Every site will be different, and the amount of time it takes to implement EHR depends upon many factors, including size of the facility, services offered at the facility, current state of RPMS and packages installed and utilized.
