Healthstory Project Overview - Dictation To Clinical Data For AHDI

  1. 1. Welcome!The Health Story ProjectDictation to Clinical Data: Automating the Production of Structured and Encoded Documents<br />Kim Stavrinaki<br />s<br />AHDI Conference, July 2009<br />Nick van Terheyden, MD, Chief Medical Officer, M*Modal<br />
  2. 2. Presentation Overview<br />Background: The Current Situation<br />Enabling the EMR with the Missing Link<br />A User Experience (GE/RISL)<br />The Health Story Project<br />Conclusion<br />
  3. 3. Background<br />The Current Situation<br />
  4. 4. Electronic Health Record Universe<br /> Critical to the success of EHRs is to reconcile two opposing needs<br />Enterprise need for structured and coded information capture<br />Physician’s practical need for a fast and easy method for creating clinical notes.<br />
  5. 5. The Current Situation – Structured<br />Tedious manual process<br />Time-consuming<br />Documentation lacks expressiveness of natural language<br />Lack of Flexibility<br />Poor user interface<br />Cost<br />Fails to Meet Individual Physician Time vs. Benefit Test<br />Cultural resistance<br />Oblivious to HIM Requirements<br />Incomplete and Inadequate Semantic Standards<br />Direct Data Entry: Structured and encoded information.<br />
  6. 6. The Current Situation <br />Transcription can be expensive<br />Subject to longer turn-around times<br />Clinical data lost, because documents are neither structured nor encoded<br />Majority of attested information is only in the document<br />Contains the detail and comprehensive scope of patient information<br />Support human decision making<br />Reimbursement is based on narrative documentation<br />Retains current workflow, favored by physicians<br />Interoperable<br />Under utilized source of data for EMR<br />Dictation: Fast and easy, expressive.<br />
  7. 7. The Current Situation<br />High cost of documentation<br />Cost of ownership and physician time vs. transcription cost<br />60% of the data lost to the EHR<br />Care process inefficiencies and impact on quality<br />
  8. 8. Enabling the EMR<br />The Missing Link in <br />Information Capture in Healthcare<br />
  9. 9. Data Entry Time<br />The average physician spends 33 seconds dictating an establish office visit<br />92% of all office visits are established<br />If the average physician sees 40 patients a day, total dictation time of 30 minutes plus time to search for the data.<br />Using a traditional EHR application, the same number of patients would require 140 minutes of data entry time.<br />Physicians are not willing to spend an additional 90 minutes per day for data entry.<br />(40 X 92% x 33 seconds) + (40 x 8% x 125) = &lt; 30 minutes per day <br />Data and Chart courtesy Mark R. Anderson, FHIMSS, CPHIMS, CEO, AC Group<br />
  10. 10. What if you could continue to use narrative and dictation and at the same time increase usage of the EMR and make more records available for the health information exchange?<br />Crossing the Chasm…<br />
  11. 11. Health Story Project Vision<br />Comprehensive electronic clinical records that tell a patient’s complete health story<br />All of the clinical information required for<br />good patient care<br />administration<br />reporting and <br />research <br />will be readily available electronically, including information from narrative documents<br />
  12. 12. Based on HL7 CDA<br />Clinical Document Architecture Requirements<br />Human readable document<br />Must be presentable as a document<br />Rendered version covers clinical information intended by the author <br />Can contain machine-processable data<br />Cross platform and application independent<br />Can be transformed with style sheets<br />
  13. 13. Adoption<br />Incremental adoption overcomes the “not me first” dilemma<br />Not dependent on recipient’s ability to receive or process<br />Reverse adoption (can encode headers of existing documents)<br />Non-proprietary<br />Readable with any browser<br />
  14. 14. Accessible Clinical Data<br />

  16. 16. Key Workflows<br />Self Editing<br />real time – read, proof, sign each exam<br />batch mode - read multiple exams then sign via signature queue<br />VR edits<br />Option to send to Medical Editor during reporting process<br />Batch Option – dynamic combinations of workflow based on confidence models<br />user based thresholds that determines how report is returned/reviewed to signature queue<br />preliminary/draft to signature queue<br />transcriptionist then preliminary to signature queue<br />Transcriptionist – Medical Editor workflow<br />
  17. 17. Results Reporting Workflow <br />Data Center<br />Dictation Report in conversational speaking <br />Edit Mode using local capture tool – can either type to correct or voice commands<br />When dictation is complete and EOL is pushed<br />Report is returned ready for edits<br />Dictating the Procedure<br />
  18. 18. Results Reporting Workflow 2<br />Data Center<br />After final sign the report is processed in the NLP engine for learning <br />Edit Mode using local capture tool – voice in selection between brackets <br />Voice in options for brackets, sign report, add via voice more dictation in the sections, then sign<br />
  19. 19. Results Reporting Batch Mode<br />Report goes to Medical Editor or signature queue, Radiologist moves on to next exam<br />Dictating the Procedure<br />When dictation is complete<br />

  32. 32. Our Advocacy Messages<br />Dictation is the documentation method of choice for 85% of physician providers<br />Standardization of dictated notes is an achievable step for providers; Standards are available today<br />The current EHR systems certification process does not include requirements for integration with dictated notes per available standards<br />The current draft definition of meaningful use focuses on recording clinical documentation in the EHR through data entry<br />
  33. 33. Our Advocacy Requests<br />Actions Requested:<br />Require certified EHR systems to accept interfaced data from dictation/transcription process per available Healthstory standards<br />Modify the definition of meaningful use to recognize use of certified EHR systems with the above capabilities<br />Assist in spreading the word about this avenue for getting important information into the EHR that allows physicians to continue dictating and that provides patients with comprehensive electronic records<br />
  34. 34. Conclusion<br />
  35. 35. Crossing the Chasm…Babel Must Go<br />Medical text “typed” from dictation <br /> has “no meaning”<br />black marks on a page… <br />info must be tagged as discrete data <br /> elements in order to assign meaning <br />Clinical documentation uses wide variety of terms with same meaning….<br />and terms that sound the same that have different meanings…..<br />authors have a wide variety of styles, accents, methods of dictation…<br />
  36. 36. Health Story…<br />Captures meaningful clinical documents<br />Is the bridge between<br />free form narrative and expressive notes, and<br />fully structured clinical data<br />Improves the quality of clinical documentation<br />Generates semantically interoperable clinical data that will<br />solve the fundamental challenges with EMRs - allowingclinical decision support, alerts, decision support, data mining<br />enable interoperability, reporting, patient safety initiatives, PQRI (pay for performance), PSI (patient safety indicators) and improve billing data capture <br />
  37. 37. Impact<br />Allows providers to maintain preferred workflow and documentation methods<br />Increases the value and usability of narrative documents<br />Accelerates the implementation of interoperable electronic health records<br />Allows reuse of information<br />
  38. 38. Getting Involved<br />Become an “Ambassador” <br />We need a grass roots effort to help spread the word; Support our advocacy messages<br />You can help educate your employers, clients, etc. about Health Story <br />Joint the Effort<br />Varying membership levels, including individuals<br />Volunteer for a Project<br />Currently developing data standards for discharge summary<br />Participate in HL7 ballots on project draft standards<br />Encourage Implementation<br />E.g. Include requirements for standards in transcription RFPs<br />
