Where Do I Put My Damn Data? Patient Portals and PHRs

  1. 1. Where Do I Put My Damn Data? Patient Portals and PHRs Joe Ketcherside, MD President & CEO, Cognovant Inc.Partnership with Patients SummitKansas City MO, September 2012
  2. 2. How do I get my health data? There are different ways to get your data  View of some or all data in a provider’s Electronic Health Record (EHR)  Download a file or printout data from a portal  Paper reports generated by your provider  Copies of paper-based records and reports Challenges exist in getting data from multiple providers It’s difficult to keep up-to-date
  3. 3. Where do I keep my health data? Box in a closet Paper copies in a file Patient portal  Provider keeps the data, but I have access Personal Health Record (PHR)  Key difference between patient portal and PHR – you’re in control, you manage the data  Different kinds of PHRs  Tethered PHR  Web-based independent PHR  Mobile independent PHR
  4. 4. EHR vs. PHR – What’s The Difference? An EHR is a business record a provider uses to deliver care in a hospital, health system or office  Clinical and administrative staff enter the data  Used for billing and all clinical activities  Record of your care in that organization A PHR is used by an individual person to manage their health information  P stands for Personal  You enter your data and manage the content  This is a record of your care across time and place Though there is overlap, these are significantly different
  5. 5. Patient Portals Often a feature of a provider’s Electronic Health Record Lets a patient view some or all of their data in the record  Generally just a subset of the complete record Only contains information in that EHR Most provide additional administrative features  Secure communication with providers  Appointment requests  Refill requests  Access to educational info or care plans Doesn’t let you enter your own data Doesn’t move with you when you change providers
  6. 6. Tethered PHR Tied to a provider’s EHR, employer or insurance company Does let you enter and track your own data Usually populated by the source system Most also provide administrative features Doesn’t contain data from providers outside of the source system Doesn’t go with you when you change provider systems or insurance
  7. 7. Web-based independent PHR PHR system hosted independently  Microsoft HealthVault, Google Health (RIP) Database lives on host’s servers, so they control it Access via browser or mobile device You manage the data yourself Some may link to providers, pharmacies or other sources Less likely to have administrative connection to providers You still have it if you change providers, job, insurance
  8. 8. Mobile independent PHR PHR system runs locally on mobile device Database is locally hosted You control your health data Contains data from multiple sources You can share data with your providers May be able to import data from EHRs Moves with you when you change providers, jobs, etc. Less likely to have administrative features
  9. 9. Value of PHRs All your health information in one place PHRs aggregate data from multiple sources Longitudinal picture of your health, not just one provider Complete and consistent source of truth Tools to track important data like blood pressure, weight, medications, etc. Share patient-sourced data with providers Potential for links to educational resources and communities or care Critical information in an emergency
  10. 10. Barriers to PHRs Number one barrier is the current difficulty of gathering and entering data It’s difficult to keep up-to-date once entered Security and privacy concerns Tethered PHRs usually don’t contain data from other providers Challenges understanding medical terminology How do you share the data with providers?
  11. 11. Impact of Stage 2 Meaningful Use EPs must provide patients the ability to view online, download, and transmit their health information within 4 business days of the information being available to the EP EH and CAH must provide patients the ability to view online, download, and transmit information about a hospital admission within 36 hours of discharge Transmission of health information is to another provider or to a PHR Stage 3 expected to require EHRs to incorporate patient- sourced data This will be the key to reaching the potential of PHRs
