  8. 8. Accountable Care Organizations Voluntary groups of physicians, hospitals and other healthcare providers:  Responsible for care of a clearly defined Medicare population  Designed to foster patient-centered, coordinated care  If it succeeds in providing high-quality care while reducing cost, it shares in savings achieved for Medicare Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) Source: Berwick DM. N Engl J Med 2011;365:1753-1756.
  9. 9. Three Goals of ACOs  Better care for individuals  Better health for populations  Slower growth in costs through improvements in care Berwick DM. N Engl J Med 2011;364(16):e32. Accountable Care Organizations

  20. 20. Why Focus on Patient-Centered Strategies that are “Output” or Communication-Oriented”?
  21. 21. “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” George Bernard Shaw Output/Communication- Oriented Strategies
  22. 22. For the first time in 2012 Consumer Reports rated hospitals. Output/Communication- Oriented Strategies
  23. 23. Communication was consistently the most poorly rated category. Output/Communication- Oriented Strategies
  24. 24. Output/Communication- Oriented Strategies  These metrics are moving beyond the government sites to mainstream, consumer sites Patient Satisfaction Source: Kelly T. HIStalk, August 8, 2012 http://histalk2.com/2012/08/08/re aders-write-8812/ (Accessed 5/10/13)
  25. 25. “Output-Oriented” Meaningful Use Objectives
  26. 26. “Output-Oriented” MU Objectives Patient-Specific Education Patients who are provided patient- specific education resources Number of unique patients admitted to the hospital’s inpatient or emergency departments during the reporting period > 10%
  27. 27. “Output-Oriented” MU Objectives  2 Measures for this Meaningful Use objective  Both must be satisfied in order to meet the objective View, Download and Transmit to Third Party
  28. 28. “Output-Oriented” MU Objectives Patients whose information is available online within 36 hours of discharge Number of unique patients discharged from the hospital’s inpatient or emergency department during the reporting period Patients who view, download or transmit to a third party the information provided online Number of unique patients discharged from the hospital’s inpatient or emergency department during the reporting period > 50% > 5%* View, Download and Transmit to Third Party *This measure was 10% in the Proposed Stage 2 Rule
  29. 29. Best Practices for Patient-Specific Education Materials
  30. 30. Best Practices The informed consent discussion conducted by the surgeon should include: 1. The nature of the illness and the natural consequences of no treatment. 2. The nature of the proposed operation, including the estimated risks of mortality and morbidity. 3. The more common known complications, which should be described and discussed. The patient should understand the risks as well as the benefits of the proposed operation. The discussion should include a description of what to expect during the hospitalization and post hospital convalescence. 4. Alternative forms of treatment, including nonoperative techniques.

Revised September 18, 2008. http://www.facs.org/fellows_info/statements/stonprin.html#anchor171960 (Accessed 5/10/13.)
  31. 31. Best Practices  Only 39% of 3,269 closed claims against anesthesiologists were judged to have adequate informed consent1  Inadequate informed consent was pursued as a secondary cause in more than 90% of ophthalmologic malpractice cases2  Lack of informed consent is one of the top 10 reasons for hospital malpractice claims3 Argument for Informed Consent 1Caplan RA, Posner KL. ASA Newsletter 1995;59(6):9-12. 2Kiss CG, Richter-Mueksch S, Stifter E, et at. Arch Ophthalmol 2004;122:94-98. 3Glabman M. Trustee 2004;57(2):12-16.
  32. 32. Best Practices  Needs to be electronic  Can’t be a “Medical Miranda Warning” Argument for Informed Consent
  33. 33. Best Practices WHO Surgical Safety Checklist
  34. 34. Best Practices  Need the consent for the Pre-Procedure Verification and/or the Time-Out  Verification of the consent is one of the most effective practices for avoiding wrong- patient/wrong-procedure/ wrong-site surgery1 Argument for Informed Consent 1Clarke JR, Johnston J, Finley ED. Ann Surg 2007;246:395-405.

  39. 39. Best Practices  Providing patients with incomplete information at discharge can result in patient harm. Discharge Instructions Courtesy of the Portland VA Medical Center Pennsylvania Patient Safety Advisory. 2008. Jun;5[2]:39-43.
  40. 40. Best Practices  Reduced the 14-day readmission rate three-fold by employing procedure- specific discharge instructions (4.1 per 1,000 outpatient procedures to 1.5 per 1,000). Discharge Instructions Boast P, Potts C. PS&QH. 2010;7(1):14-16. Courtesy of the Portland VA Medical Center
  41. 41. Best Practices  Most valuable if they are sent well prior to the 36- hour threshold  Provided prior to admission  Paper as well as electronic Discharge Instructions

  45. 45. The Meaningful Care Organization “Meaningful Care” Checklist 45  Is the initiative patient-centered?  Does it reduce risk?  Does it enhance safety?  Does it leverage the patient?  Can you utilize HIT (EHR or other systems)?  Does it support Stage 1 or Stage 2 Meaningful Objectives? Yes No      
  46. 46. Will a Focus on Patient-Centered Communications Impact the Selection of Treatments/Procedures and Potentially the Efficiency of an ACO?
  47. 47. Potential Impact on Efficiency?  A series of nine reports of elective surgical procedures, released in late 2012, found wide variations in the treatments provided. Dartmouth Atlas Project Improving Patient Decision-Making: Regional Series. The Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care. http://www.dartmouthatlas.org/pages/decision_making_series (Accessed 5/10/13.)
  48. 48. Potential Impact on Efficiency?  Mastectomy rates range from 0.3 per 1,000 female Medicare patients in the San Francisco area, to 2.3 in Grand Forks, ND Dartmouth Atlas Project
  49. 49. Potential Impact on Efficiency?  The report authors surmise that patients may not understand their full range of options and choices may be unduly influenced by providers and not patient preferences. Dartmouth Atlas Project Improving Patient Decision-Making: Regional Series. The Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care. http://www.dartmouthatlas.org/pages/decision_making_series (Accessed 5/10/13.)
  50. 50. Will a Focus on Patient-Centered Communications Impact Readmissions or Patient Satisfaction?
  51. 51. Potential Impact on Readmissions/Satisfaction?  Press Ganey analysis of hospital readmission penalty scores vs. patient satisfaction scores.  Positive patient experience correlates well with low readmission rates and high readmission rates correlate well with poor patient experience. Press Ganey HCAHPS Analysis The Relationship Between HCAHPS Performance and Readmission Penalties. Press Ganey. http://healthcare.pressganey.com/content/201211-PIReadmissions (Accessed 5/10/13.)
  52. 52. Potential Impact on Readmissions/Satisfaction?  The relationship between patient satisfaction and readmissions is not causal. Rather it is most likely predictive of an environment stratified by patient-centered communications. Press Ganey HCAHPS Analysis
  53. 53. Health Information Technology Patient-Centered Communications Greater Patient Satisfaction Lower Readmission Rates More Efficient ACOs Patient Education Informed Consent Pre-Procedure Instructions Discharge Instructions Stage 1 Stage 2 MU Objectives Stage 3 The Meaningful Care Organization
