  2. 2. Diabetes Ischemic Heart Disease
  3. 3.  Trying to adapt acute care model to Chronic Disease care  Reactive, not pro-active  Rushed practitioners not following established practice guidelines  Lack of care coordination and follow-up  Patients inadequately trained to manage their illness
  4. 4. Community Health System Resources and Health Care Organization Policies Clinical Information Self- Delivery Systems Decision Management System Support Support Design Informed, Productive Prepared, Activated Interactions Proactive Patient Practice Team Improved Outcomes Wagner et al, Health Affairs 2001;20(6):64-78.
  5. 5.  Clinical information Systems  Decision Support  Self-management Support  Delivery System Design
  6. 6.  Provide timely reminders for providers and patients  Identify relevant sub-populations for proactive care  Facilitate individual patient care planning  Share information with patients and providers to coordinate care  Monitor performance of practice team and care system
  7. 7. Electronic Medical Record In Maccabi used by all providers for over 15 years, capturing demographic and medical data and providing the clinician with support in caring for his patient.
  8. 8. Medical (Disease) Registries Based on all of the information in the data base, enable tracking individual patients as well as populations to manage chronic illness and preventive care.
  9. 9. Medical History Family Results History Visits & Lab Hospitaliza- tions Demographic Medications parameters Treatments Imaging
  10. 10. 1st year of data n % of MHS collection (2007) population Home Care 1998 5,500 0.3 Infertility 1998 10,000 0.6 Cancer 2000 36,300 2.1 Cardiovascular 1998 72,720 4.0 Diabetes 1998 85,000 4.7 Hypertension 1998 233,000 13.0 All of the above 442,520 25.0
  11. 11.  The Clinical Decision Support System provides an integrated comprehensive view of patients status including data on the patient’s status relative to prevention, disease management , medication management etc.  The system is based on clinical guidelines and alerts the provider, in real time, to the following:  Patient information indicative of aberrations in patient status.  Recommendation for needed tests/treatment based on cumulative data on the patient in the system.  Links to relevant medical knowledge.
  12. 12.  Drug interaction warnings  Prescription prioritization recommendations  Mandatory data fields (BP, smoking)  Recommended laboratory test alerts  Diagnosis-related lab test panels  Organizational alerts  Rules engine based alerts

  23. 23. Eye Examination: this is not a test that can be performed by an optometrist or a test for a driver's license but rather an in-depth eye examination by a qualified ophthalmologist. This test is very important for the early detection of eye problems as a result of diabetes. There are excellent methods for treating these problems if they are detected at the early stages. It is recommended that this test be done once a year Urine protein test: The objective of this test is to identify potential damage to the kidneys as a result of diabetes. If the discharge of protein or albumen in the urine is high, it can be treated by medication. It is recommended to do this test (micro-albumen/creatnine or 24 hour urine collection for micro albumen or protein) once a year. Here are the results over time of the test results in our system
