Healthcare Innovation and Transformation - Dr. Ken Yale


Published on

We are living in the greatest time in human history! People are living their lives on smartphones and apps, measuring themselves with wearable devices like the Apple Watch, and improving their health and care with advanced analytic algorithms. Healthcare is adopting AI, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning at an accelerated pace. “Healthcare is very important for people. We are democratizing it. We are taking what has been with the institutions, and empowering the individual to manage their health.
And we’re just getting started!” - Apple CEO Tim Cook, Jan 2019

  23. 23. @docyale EXAMPLE: READMISSION RISK Nearly 1 in 5 Medicare patients discharged from a hospital (approximately 2.6 million seniors) is readmitted within 30 days, at a cost of more than $26 billion every year - CMS, 2016 Affordable Care Act Section 3026 Community Care Transitions Program “Test models to improve care transitions from hospital to other settings and reduce readmissions for high-risk Medicare beneficiaries.” – CMS, 2011 --- “No statistically significant impacts of the CCTP on readmission rates or Medicare Part A and Part B expenditures” – Mathematica Policy Research, Final Evaluation Report, November 2017 Care Transitions Program § Medication self-management: Patient engaged & medication management system § Patient-centered record: Patient use ”PHR” (communication/continuity) § PCP & Specialist Follow-up: Patient schedules appointments § Knowledge of Red Flags: Patient understands when condition is worsening Care Transitions “Red Flags” § Cardiac § Pulmonary/COPD § Heart Failure § Diabetes § DVT § Peripheral Vascular § Stroke § Other: fever, bleeding, confusion, pain, fatigue
  24. 24. @docyale SOLUTION: DATA SCIENCE PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS One in five hospital patients experienced an adverse event within three weeks of discharge; 60% were medication related and could have been avoided, $60 million loss Risk Assessment Medicare readmission penalty Heart failure, CAD, dysrhythmia Acute myocardial infarction COPD, Pneumonia, Asthma Joint replacements Coronary artery bypass Coronary stents Stroke Diabetes LOS > 7 days (any diagnosis) Home Location Home Discharge Right Care, Right Time & Place Pre-discharge hospital visit RN home visit within 24 hours: § Medication reconciliation/education § Schedule follow-up appointments § Educate self management, “red flags,” doctor visits § “Personal Health Record” Follow-up phone calls to reinforce and ensure appropriate follow up and care Results “Significant” readmissions decline 9% decrease in total cost of ER visits “Population Health Management” or “Personal Health Managed” “Market of One”
