Title: Information Technology the Best Prescription for Safety and Quality in Healthcare


1
Information Technology the Best Prescription
for Safety and Quality in Healthcare
  • Molly Joel Coye, MD, MPH
  • Founder and CEO, Health Technology Center
  • for the
  • Department of Health Human Services
  • March 21, 2003

2
Information technology must play a central role
in the redesign of the health care system.
  • Institute of Medicine charge to the Committee on
    Quality of Health Care in America
  • develop a strategy that will result in a
    substantial improvement in the quality of
    health care over the next 10 years
  • IOM Report Crossing the Quality Chasm
  • This committee believes information
    technology must play a central role in the
    redesign of the health care system if a
    substantial improvement in quality is to be
    achieved over the coming decade.
  • Automation of clinical, financial, and
    administrative transactions is essential to
    improving quality, preventing errors, enhancing
    consumer confidence in the health system, and
    improving efficiency.

Communication among providers and between
clinicians and patients is critical.
  • Secretary Thompsons request to the Institute of
    Medicine
  • identify possible demonstration projects that
    might be implementedwith the hope of
    yielding models for broader health system reform
    within a few years
  • IOM Report Rapid Advances
  • At every step of the way, communication among
    providers and between clinicians and patients is
    critical, and information and knowledge must be
    made available to users when they need it.
  • The wise use of information and communications
    technologyhas the potential to improve the
    quality and safety of health care while at the
    same time enhancing access and reducing waste,
    unnecessary delays, and administrative costs.

Why leadership is needed
  • The current state of health care and information
    technology
  • A history of underinvestment
  • The lack of data standards the tower of Babel
  • Progress through eHealth Initiative, Connecting
    for Health
  • The limited business case for quality and
    therefore, much of IT
  • Safety and quality consequences
  • The promise of innovative technologies awaiting
    deployment
  • Bar coding VHA, NAHIT, FDA
  • Community and regional data-sharing
  • Successful models need for rapid duplication
    nationally
  • Chronic disease monitoring Health Hero
  • Remote ICU management Visicu, Sentara, UC-Davis
    and Sutter
  • EMR, CPOE
  • The massive task of transforming an industry
  • VHA paperless health systems

IOM Rapid Advances Report Demonstrations of
quality, safety and efficiency
  • Statewide/Regional Data Exchange Platforms
  • Electronic enrollment clearinghouse model exists
    now (New England NEHEN) five years experience
  • No significant capital investment required
  • Immediate efficiencies for consumers, providers
    and plans
  • A platform for rapid extension of protected
    information sharing
  • Laboratory data no longer lost
  • Pharmacy prescriptions and refills accurate,
    records retained and accessible
  • Clinicians get patient information when and where
    they need it
  • Regional demonstrations of IT infrastructure to
    support
  • Communications (patient to provider, and among
    providers)
  • Telemedicine, e-mail, home monitoring
  • Patient access to all records and information
  • Knowledge management give clinicians immediate
    access to up-to-date scientific information that
    is relevant to their specialty and practice
  • Decision support assist clinicians with
    decision-support tools reminders, prompts,
    medication order entry systems and disease
    management systems

6
A unique opportunity for the Department of Health
and Human Services
  • Leading by example extending Department and
    broader federal influence, drawing private sector
    collaboration
  • Fostering demonstrations to share the lessons of
    widespread implementation
  • Providing incentives to drive adoption
    especially tied to quality, safety, and access
    for consumers to their own medical information
  • Supporting private and public investments in
    information technology to support quality and
    safety
