  2. 2. What are the goals of IU Medical Group’s quality improvement program? What metrics and benchmarks are used to measure progress towards each of these performance goals? How is each goal specifically linked to management accountability? IU Medical Group’s goals for our patients are to: • Decrease Mortality • Decrease Morbidity • Increase Patient Satisfaction • Improve Patient Safety • IU Medical Group utilizes the University Healthcare Consortium for benchmarks in mortality, morbidity and safety. Our patient satisfaction information utilizes the Regenstrief organization, and the Pickar survey. • Each Clinical Chair will be asked to report their departments progress on these goals to the Board at least annually.

  12. 12. Does the IUMG board have a formal orientation and continuing education process that helps members appreciate external quality and patient safety requirements? Does the board include members with expertise in patient safety and quality improvement issues? • The IUMG – SC Medical Director meets with each of the Department Chairs, or their designee to share and review the departments quality and safety data and develop improvement plans when necessary. • The IUMG – SC Board includes members with expertise in patient quality and safety.
  13. 13. Physician Education and Training  Partnership between Medical Education, IUSOM, & Quality  Residents, Faculty, New medical staff, & Medical students. Orientations for all new interns, 3rd year med students, new faculty on staff.  Ongoing training with quality and safety lunches, intersessions for med students, orientation for new faculty mid-year.  Core curriculum  Quality, Safety, Medical Equipment, Cerner, Regulatory Compliance, Infection Control, Medication Safety, etc.  Designed for orientation & on-going information sharing
  14. 14. What information is essential to the board’s ability to understand and evaluate the organization’s quality assessment and performance improvement programs? Once these performance metrics and benchmarks are established, how frequently does the board receive reports about the quality improvement efforts? • The IUMG – SC Board requires each of the Clinical Departments to report at least annually to report on the following: • Mortality • Morbidity • Satisfaction • Safety • CMS Physician Voluntary Reporting Program (PQRI) • EMR implementation • Communication with referring physicians and patients
  15. 15. Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI) • PQRI establishes a financial incentive for eligible professionals to participate in a voluntary quality reporting program. Eligible professionals who successfully reported PQRI quality measures may earn an incentive, of 1.5% of total allowed charges for covered Medicare physician fee schedule services. • If no more than three 2007 PQRI quality measures were applicable, each measure must have been reported in at least 80% of the cases in which the measure was reportable. • 27,811 PQRI measures were reported on from July – December 2007 • 84% of those reported measures were for Medicare patients • Anesthesia, Dermatology, Emergency Medicine, Primary Care, Medicine, Ophthalmology, Orthopaedic Surgery, and Surgery reported measures. These groups met the 30 minimum patient/encounter episode to qualify for participation. • 5% of the reported PQRI measures did not meet the performance requirement.
  16. 16. PQRI Results Example Anesthesia • 19 providers reported: • 819 Total patients were reported on that antibiotics were given w/in 1 hour prior to surgery – 717 Medicare patients (88% of the patients reported on) – 453 Medicare patients had documentation that antibiotics were given w/in 1 hour prior to surgery • 63% of Medicare patients were given antibiotics w/in 1 hour prior to surgery • 36% of Medicare patients did not have the documentation that antibiotics were given, but were successfully reported on.
  17. 17. Case example Otolaryngology wanted to report on the following CMS measures: • Acute Otitis Externa-Topical Therapy (ages 2 and older) • Acute Otitis Externa-Pain Assessment (ages 2 and older) • Acute Otitis Externa-Systemic Antimicrobial Therapy, Avoidance of Inappropriate Use (ages 2 and older)
  18. 18. Case example • How many Medicare patients, age 2 or greater have a diagnosis of Acute Otitis Externa? • How many Medicare patients, age 2 months to 12 years, have Otitis Media with Effusion?

  20. 20. How does IU’s quality assessment and improvement processes coordinated with its corporate compliance program? How are quality of care and patient safety issues addressed in the organization’s risk assessment and corrective action plans? • The IUMG faculty are integral to promoting corporate compliance, as well as to risk management and organizational reputation. All employees and faculty are encouraged to use the confidential hotline numbers to report compliance issues anonymously. The use of the hotline is not limited to compliance, and can be used for quality and safety concerns as well. • IUMG collaborates with each of our hospital partners in their risk assessment and corrective action programs
  21. 21. What processes are in place to promote the reporting of quality concerns and medical errors and to protect those who ask questions and report problems? What guidelines exist for reporting quality and patient safety concerns to the board? • IUMG encourages all employees and faculty to utilize the confidential compliance hotlines to report any issue. This includes the University, Clarian, Wishard, and the VA. All quality and safety issues are investigated by the Medical Director, and are reviewed by the Medical Management Committee, which reports to the IUMG – SC Board. All such reports are handled in a confidential manner.
  22. 22. Are human and other resources adequate to support patient safety and clinical quality? How are proposed changes in resource allocation evaluated from the perspective of clinical quality and patient care? Are systems in place to provide adequate resources to account for differences in patient acuity and care needs? • Resources are assessed at least on an annual basis. Our Board has recently allocated additional resources for quality and safety. • IUMG – SC utilizes the UHC case mix index to benchmark the acuity of our patients.
  23. 23. Does IU’s competency assessment and training, credentialing, and peer review processes adequately recognize the necessary focus on clinical quality and patient safety issues? • IUMG – SC reviews malpractice complaints, the National Practitioner Databank, patient satisfaction, credentialing and physician specific complaints. The Credentialing Committee and the Medical Management Committee review and act on this information and report to the Board.
  24. 24. How are “adverse patient events” and other medical errors identified, analyzed, reported, and incorporated into IU’s performance improvement activities? How do management and the board address quality deficiencies without unnecessarily increasing the organization’s liability exposure? • IUMG – SC is linked to the Risk Management departments of each of our affiliated hospitals. We also assist with the following: • Indiana State Department of Health Reportable Events • JCAHO Sentinal Events • Internal investigations and Reviews of adverse events
