  8. 8. Accountable Care Organizations Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) 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 Source: Berwick DM. N Engl J Med 2011;365:1753-1756.
  9. 9. Accountable Care Organizations 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.

  20. 20. Why Focus on Patient-Centered Strategies that are “Output” or Communication-Oriented”?
  21. 21. Output/CommunicationOriented Strategies “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” George Bernard Shaw
  22. 22. Output/CommunicationOriented Strategies For the first time in 2012 Consumer Reports rated hospitals.
  23. 23. Output/CommunicationOriented Strategies Communication was consistently the most poorly rated category.
  24. 24. Output/CommunicationOriented Strategies Patient Satisfaction  These metrics are moving beyond the government sites to mainstream, consumer sites Source: Kelly T. HIStalk, August 8, 2012 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 patientspecific 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 View, Download and Transmit to Third Party  2 Measures for this Meaningful Use objective  Both must be satisfied in order to meet the objective
  28. 28. “Output-Oriented” MU Objectives View, Download and Transmit to Third Party 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 *This measure was 10% in the Proposed Stage 2 Rule > 50% > 5%*
  29. 29. Best Practices for Patient-Specific Education Materials
  30. 30. Best Practices American College of Surgeons 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. American College of Surgeons Statements on Principles. Revised September 18, 2008. (Accessed 5/10/13.)
  31. 31. Best Practices Argument for Informed Consent  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 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 Argument for Informed Consent  Needs to be electronic  Can’t be a “Medical Miranda Warning”
  33. 33. Best Practices WHO Surgical Safety Checklist
  34. 34. Best Practices Argument for Informed Consent  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 wrongpatient/wrong-procedure/ wrong-site surgery1 1Clarke JR, Johnston J, Finley ED. Ann Surg 2007;246:395-405.
  35. 35. Best Practices Argument for Informed Consent
  36. 36. Best Practices Pre-Procedure Instructions  Reduce the risk of potentially life-threatening perioperative complications. Tea C. Perioperative concepts and nursing management. In: Smeltzer SC, et al, eds. Brunner and Suddarth’s Textbook of Medical-Surgical Nursing. Philadelphia, PA: Wolters Kluwer Health/Lippincott Williams & Wilkins; 2010:422-483. Courtesy of the Baltimore VA Medical Center
  37. 37. Best Practices Pre-Procedure Instructions  Lower the incidence of preventable surgery cancellations. Henderson BA et al. Incidence and causes of ocular surgery cancellations in an ambulatory surgical center. J Catarct Refract Surg. 2006;32(1):95-102 Pletta C et al. Efficiency improvement plan through patient education on thyroid imaging procedures. J Nucl Med. 2008;49(Supp 1):426P Courtesy of the Baltimore VAMC
  38. 38. Best Practices for Viewing, Downloading and Transmitting Patient Information
  39. 39. Best Practices Discharge Instructions  Providing patients with incomplete information at discharge can result in patient harm. Pennsylvania Patient Safety Advisory. 2008. Jun;5[2]:39-43. Courtesy of the Portland VA Medical Center
  40. 40. Best Practices Discharge Instructions  Reduced the 14-day readmission rate three-fold by employing procedurespecific discharge instructions (4.1 per 1,000 outpatient procedures to 1.5 per 1,000). Boast P, Potts C. PS&QH. 2010;7(1):14-16. Courtesy of the Portland VA Medical Center
  41. 41. Best Practices Discharge Instructions  Most valuable if they are sent well prior to the 36hour threshold  Provided prior to admission  Paper as well as electronic
  42. 42. Developing Initiatives in Your Own “Meaningful Care Organization”
  43. 43. The Meaningful Care Organization Resources  Making Good on ACOs’ Promise — The Final Rule for the Medicare Shared Savings Program. N Engl J Med 2011;365(19):1753-1756. November 10, 2011.   Meaningful Use – The Whiteboard Story – Stage 1 Final Rule Meaningful Use Objectives and Measures Compared to Stage 2 Final Objectives and Measures... Created as a reference tool for public use and convenience by The Advisory Board Company.  43
  44. 44. Stage 1 Stage 2
  45. 45. The Meaningful Care Organization “Meaningful Care” Checklist Yes  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? 45   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? Dartmouth Atlas Project  A series of nine reports of elective surgical procedures, released in late 2012, found wide variations in the treatments provided. Improving Patient Decision-Making: Regional Series. The Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care. (Accessed 5/10/13.)
  48. 48. Potential Impact on Efficiency? Dartmouth Atlas Project  Mastectomy rates range from 0.3 per 1,000 female Medicare patients in the San Francisco area, to 2.3 in Grand Forks, ND
  49. 49. Potential Impact on Efficiency? Dartmouth Atlas Project  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. Improving Patient Decision-Making: Regional Series. The Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care. (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 HCAHPS Analysis  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. The Relationship Between HCAHPS Performance and Readmission Penalties. Press Ganey. (Accessed 5/10/13.)
  52. 52. Potential Impact on Readmissions/Satisfaction? Press Ganey HCAHPS Analysis  The relationship between patient satisfaction and readmissions is not causal. Rather it is most likely predictive of an environment stratified by patient-centered communications.
