    2. 2. Financial disclosure• I have received research funding and salary support from the Informed Medical Decisions Foundation• I serve as a Medical Editor for the Informed Medical Decisions Foundation in the area of bariatric surgery
    3. 3. Outline• Group Health’s pathway to increased demand for shared decision making (SDM)• Infrastructure to support SDM• How did we create a culture of expectation around SDM and begin to build SDM competencies among providers?• Measurable outcomes• Conclusions and next steps
    4. 4. Group Health’s pathway toshared decision making
    5. 5. What is Group Health?• Group Health is a consumer-governed, non-profit health system that integrates care and coverage for over 600,000 residents of Washington state and Northern Idaho (1 in 10 Washington residents)
    6. 6. Group Health rates of surgical procedures rising
    7. 7. Shared decision making – the highest legalstandard in Washington state• 2007 Washington state legislation: – Recognized the use of shared decision making along with high-quality patient decision aids as the highest standard of informed consent – Mandated, but did not fund, the state Health Care Authority (HCA) to implement shared decision making demonstration projects• 2012 Washington state legislation: – Authorized the WA state HCA to certify high-quality decision aids
    8. 8. Infrastructure elements tosupport shared decisionmaking
    9. 9. Twelve preference-sensitive conditions• Orthopedic Surgery • Women’s Health – Hip Osteoarthritis – Uterine Fibroids – Knee Osteoarthritis – Abnormal Uterine Bleeding• Cardiology • Breast Cancer – General Surgery – Coronary Artery Disease – Early Stage Breast Cancer – Breast Reconstruction• Urology – Ductal Carcinoma In Situ – Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia – Prostate Cancer • Neurosurgery – Spinal Stenosis – Herniated Disc
    10. 10. Epic ordering of patient decision aids
    11. 11. EpicCare “smart phrases” for easier documenting ofshared decision making conversations• Before Decision Aid Viewing “The patient and I engaged in a shared decision making conversation. I recommended that the patient review a Health Dialog decision aid and make an appointment with me to finalize a treatment plan.”• After Decision Aid Viewing “The patient and I engaged in a shared decision making conversation. The patient had previously reviewed the Health Dialog patient decision aid. We discussed the content of the decision aid, clarified the patient’s treatment preferences, and I answered the patient’s questions. We agreed to the following treatment/services(s): *** and ***. The patient signed the applicable consent form.”
    12. 12. Appropriate staffing for implementation and ongoing process improvement Project managers with experience implementing practice changes at Group Health were hired to carry out this work14

    14. 14. But I already DO shared decision-making withmy patients… Of course it is totally up to you, but if it was me, I’d choose to have the surgery.
    15. 15. Setting the tone for competency in shared decision making “No patient should undergo a preference sensitive procedure without documented evidence that they“Nice to do got all the informationif you have they needed and thenthe time and Cultural spectrum had a conversation withinclination.” their provider in which their preferences were documented before they made their decision.” GH leaders want to push providers right over here!
    16. 16. Key culture change steps• Required all providers to watch the relevant decision aids• ½-day CME with outside experts trained 90% of our specialty providers and surgeons• Monthly feedback to leaders and providers – Volume of decision aids ordered – Volume of surgical procedures and total costs of surgical procedures – Number and percent of surgical patients in each specialty who had surgery without receiving a decision aid• Patient satisfaction data related to decision aid use
    17. 17. Outcomes
    18. 18. Process measure – “defect measure” showsfewer missed opportunities for DA delivery
