  2. EHRs, Decision Support, and Meaningful Use of HIT Learning Objectives • Objective 1: Discuss the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene partnership with a commercial EHR vendor and how it created a public health – enabled EHR • Objective 2: Describe the EHR "meaningful use" movement and how it could transform existing clinical / public health practices

  3. EHRs, Decision Support, and Meaningful Use of HIT Learning Objectives (Cont’d – 1) • Objective 3: Demonstrate knowledge of public health – oriented clinical decision support including an integrated strategy using multiple tools such as alerts, order sets, smart forms, and quality reporting • Objective 4: Describe the strategies, features, and systems needed for public health agencies to define and build the necessary connections to EHRs as identified by the “meaningful use” legislation • Objective 5: Identify the essential features of four primary public health IT functions including syndromic surveillance, bidirectional immunization registries, public health alerts, ad – hoc reporting, etc.

  7. ECW / PCIP partnership • eClinicalWorks (ECW): • A CCHIT – certified vendor providing one integrated system for practice management / EHR / billing / PHR • 2007 partnership between PCIP and eClinicalWorks to develop public health functionality in response to Department of Health initiative: Take Care New York • This experience helped to shape the criteria for meaningful use as envisioned by PCIP’s founder Dr. FarzadMostashari

  8. Deal for the providers • We give them… • ECW software • 10 days of onsite training • Data migration services • Business analyst services • Discounted ASP services • Onsite technical assistance • They are responsible for… • Hardware • Staff time spent in training • Lost revenue • Self – tutorial and web – based learning • $4,000 per FTE for technical assistance

  10. Additional services (Cont’d – 1) • Post go live • Revenue cycle optimization • EMR consulting • QI consulting • PCMH preparation • Privacy and security consulting • Workflow redesign (small practices) • Patient portal training • Interfaces (e.g., labs, registries • Pilots • Meaningful use • Quality measures utilization measures • Health Information Exchange • Interoperability • Patient engagement • Biosurveillance

  11. 2010 goals • Extend EHRs that support prevention to 2,500 Medicaid providers, over 1.5 million patients • Support EHR – enabled providers in a standardized health information exchange • Design and implement a pay – for – performance incentive program that supports and recognizes preventive measures • Prepare providers to meet “Meaningful Use” requirements

  12. NYC REACH Extension Center • The Extension Center must be capable of providing assistance to all providers in a designated region, but priority shall be given to providers that are primary care physicians and / or other health care professionals with prescriptive privileges, such as physician assistants and nurse practitioners

  13. NYC REACH Extension Center (Cont’d – 1) • A few of the primary priorities of NYC REACH are: • Assisting providers to adopt an EHR • Providing assistance to reach “Meaningful Use” of the EHR • Enabling the electronic exchange of health information between EHRs • Reporting of quality measures using the EHR

  14. Meaningful use as a “launch pad” • The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) provides over $40 billion in health IT incentives to assist and reward providers for achieving “meaningful use” • Primary goal of HIT stimulus • Use timely and easily accessible information to improve the delivery and consistency of effective health care • Adoption of technology is not enough • Five key areas to integrate technology to improve overall health and delivery systems

  15. Meaningful Use goals • Goal 1: Improve quality, safety, efficiency, and reduce health disparities • Provide access to comprehensive patient health data for patient’s health care team • Use evidence – based order sets and CPOE e – prescribing • Apply clinical decision support at the point of care • Generate lists of patients who need care and use them to reach out to patients • Report to patient registries for quality improvement, public reporting, etc.

  16. Meaningful Use goals (Cont’d – 1) • Goal 2: Engage patients and families • Provide patients and families with timely access to data, knowledge, and tools to make informed decisions and to manage their health • Goal 3: Improve care coordination • Exchange meaningful clinical information among professional health care team

  17. Meaningful Use goals (Cont’d – 2) • Goal 4: Improve population and public health • Submit data (immunization, syndromic surveillance and reportable disease) to public health agencies • Goal 5: Ensure adequate privacy and security protection for personal health information • Ensure privacy and security protections for confidential information through operating policies, procedures, and technologies and compliance with applicable law • Provide transparency of data sharing to patients

  18. Improve population and public health: 2011 • Capability to submit electronic syndromic surveillance data to public health agencies and actual submission in accordance with applicable law and practice • Capability to submit electronic data to immunization registries or Immunization Information Systems and actual submission in accordance with applicable law and practice

  19. Improve population and public health: 2013 • Receive health alerts from public health agencies • Provide sufficiently anonymized electronic syndrome surveillance data to public health agencies with capacity to link to personal identifiers • Receive immunization histories and recommendations from immunization registries

  20. Improve population and public health: 2015 • Dynamic and ad hoc quality reports • Clinical dashboards • Use of epidemiologic data • Automated real – time surveillance • Adverse events • Near misses • Disease outbreaks • Bioterrorism

  21. Unit 4: EHRs, Decision Support, and Meaningful Use of HIT, Summary – Lecture a • Significant support was given to providers in New York City by the Health Department to adopt a prevention – oriented EHR capable of sending electronic health data, particularly syndromic surveillance, quality measurement, and immunization histories
