Title: The Seven Deadly Sins: Chronic Care and the Future Of American Healthcare

The Seven Deadly Sins Chronic Care and the
Future Of American Healthcare
  • Ian Morrison
The Seven Deadly Sins
  • Pride
  • Anger
  • Envy
  • Greed
  • Gluttony
  • Sloth
  • Lust

Seven Deadly Sins
  • Proud Republicans
  • Angry Democrats
  • Envy The Uninsured and underinsured who are
    envious of people with access to health care that
    adds true value and protects the chronically ill
  • Greed why healthcare is about incomes not
    outcomes (tax policy, provider reimbursement and
    return on investment)
  • Gluttony and Sloth A powerful double act
    fueling the obesity epidemic, the depression
    epidemic, and the failure of the SF Giants
  • Lust Its all we have left

Republicans and Perotians are the Natural
Majority of the United States
Perot cost Bush the Elder in 1992
Nader cost Gore in 2000
Republicans Grow with Income
Republican Vote by Family Income
63 of 200K Plus (2 of electorate)
50K Plus is 55 of electorate 75K Plus is 32
Exit Poll Results Most Important Issue
Exit Poll Results Abortion
Moral Values versus Moral Values
  • Moral Values aka Divisive Social Issues that
    appeal to Christian Conservative Voters
  • Abortion
  • Gay Marriage
  • Stem Cell Research
  • Some Other Examples of Moral Values
  • Healthcare is a Right
  • Poverty is bad
  • Dont pollute the environment
  • Dont burden our children with a mountain of debt
  • Dont Shoot Any Living Creature unless they are
    trying to shoot you

Exit Poll Results Availability and Cost of
Health Care
Bush Wins the Unconcerned in a Landslide
What to Expect Under Bush 43 Release 2.0
  • Tax policy as health policy
  • Make the tax cuts permanent
  • Large deficits
  • Pressure on Medicare reimbursement
  • Medicaid no help
  • Health Insurance Market
  • Talk about the uninsured but remember the 7, 14,
    28, 56 Rule
  • HDHPs Shitty coverage for all
  • Medicare Policy
  • Pay for Performance
  • WIPDBS Implementation
  • Reimportation given the Drug Industrys
  • Private Sector Medicare PPOs Say What?
  • HSAs
  • Malpractice Reform?

Continuing Backlash Against Health Care Industries
In 1997 computer companies were rated
together (I.e. hardware and software companies
were not measured separately Because airlines
were not included in 1997, the trend for airlines
is from 1998 - 2002

Medicare Bill The Ten Commandments
  • There shall be competition (Even if it is
    unpopular, doesnt work and there are no willing
    HMOs or congressional districts willing to
    participate in it)
  • There shall be liberty for seniors to be confused
    by a myriad of private health plan and drug
    coverage offerings
  • There shall be skin in the game (consumer
    responsibility for payment through co-payments,
    deductibles and premium sharing) because it is
    good for consumers to pay at the point of care
    (it will stop them overusing the Medicare system
    for recreational purposes and it teaches seniors
    that they should look after themselves in their
    forties and fifties)
  • There shall be no supplementary coverage because
    supplementary coverage nullifies skin in the game
  • There shall be no new taxes for rich people, only
    raised premiums for all
  • There shall be privatization because private is
    better than public (dont argue, this is a
  • There shall be unrestricted free choice of plans
    each of which has a restricted choice of doctors
    because choice is good
  • There shall be no Canadian drugs in the veins of
    Americans even if the drugs are made in America
    and purchased by Americans
  • There shall be big differences in coverage among
    seniors but thou shall not covet thy neighbors
  • There shall be no senior left behind……….. in
    traditional Medicare

Lifestyle Changes that Promote Sedentary Behavior
Obesity Drivers
  • We are eating more (duh!)
  • We are eating out more (In 1970 34 of the food
    budget was consumed outside the home in late
    1990s it was 47)
  • Everything is supersized at home and at McDonalds
  • We stopped smoking
  • We are all working too much especially women
  • We dont exercise enough because we are all
    working too much
  • The only people who are exercising and eating
    right are people who were thin in the first place
    or bulemic celebrities or rich people who dont
    work or French

Whats the National Game Plan for Financing
Chronic Care?
  • Consumer Deflected Healthcare Retail care and
    Catastrophic coverage
  • Discounted fee for service everywhere
  • Siloed delivery systems
  • No incentive for coordination
  • No IT infrastructure
  • All delivered through a pluralistic Gong Show of
    providers intent of maximizing their income under
    the perverse and toxic incentives they face
  • That should work pretty well, eh?

Consumer Responsibility for Payment
  • Defined Benefit to Defined Contribution not
    necessarily in pure form
  • Skin in the game no matter what
  • The Ross Perot Effect
  • Transparency in Pricing The End of the
    Hostellerie de Plaisance Model
  • Break the Culture of Entitlement
  • Let Them Eat Choice
  • The political and economic context is crucial
  • Tiering no matter what
  • Ability to pay shapes service, choice, network
    and technology
  • The backlash against coverage erosion

Chronic Care A Long Way to Go
Source Improving the Care of the Chronically
Ill Is it Good Business? Ed Wagner, MD, MPH.
MacColl Institute for Health Innovation, Group
Health Cooperative, 11/03
Source Chronic Disease Management Through
Quality Improvement the Basics. Chris
Rauscher, MD (Canada), 5/04
The Argument For Consumer Responsibility for
  • Consumers have been progressively insulated from
    the cost of care for the last 40 years
  • If they only knew how much healthcare cost and
    had to pay they would use it less
  • If they were responsible for paying they would
    also take more responsibility to become healthy
    and cost the system less
  • Consumers should have the right to choose and to
    trade up to better quality with their own money
  • When they are make rational consumer choices the
    market will be working and whatever is spent will
    be appropriate like any other market or sector of
    the economy

The Argument Against Consumer Responsibility for
  • The 5/50 Problem Most consumers that are heavy
    users have significant co-morbidity or serious
    illness like cancer, they didnt choose this
    health status
  • One day in an American hospital and they are over
    their maximum deductible, so……
  • Catastrophic coverage is a green light for
    excessive care by hospitals and
    procedure-oriented specialists
  • While skin in the game can clearly move people
    around does it save money overall?
  • The equity problems
  • A de facto reallocation of resources from poor to
    rich (my access to the collective social capital
    of health insurance is better because I can come
    up with the economic down payment for physician
    visits and tests)
  • Poor people with chronic illnesses will be
    disproportionately affected by consumer
    responsibility for payment

Consumer-Directed Health Plan Prototype
  • Employer funds only
  • Notional account
  • Section 105 Plan
  • Balance rolls over yr to yr
  • Employer controls growth
  • Employer controls exit rules
  • Vesting
  • Retiree medical
  • Coverage for alternative care

  • Ensures good health
  • Neutralizes hoarding

  • Telephonic support

High Deductible Health Plans for Five Years
  • Consumer Directed Health Plans (CDHP) and HSAs
    are a subset of and a stalking horse for High
    Deductible Health Plans(HDHP)
  • HDHP will grow and CDHPs will grow fast BUT from
    a very small base.
  • The leading edge benefit design CDHPs will
    drag all plan designs toward higher deductibles.
  • 1973 Nixon passed HMO legislation and thought
    hell get Kaiser but instead he got PPOs.
  • 2003 Bush passed MMA thinking hell get
    tax-sheltered HSAs (CDHPs) but instead he will
    get high-deductible plans.
  • The ideology of consumer-driven health care has
    been implemented before the infrastructure to
    make it viable has been built.

HDHP Consumer Behavior
  • HDHP are not necessarily young immortals
  • Two populations those that have a choice and
    those forced into HDHP
  • Not sophisticated or confident shoppers
  • Pay more out of pocket (duh!)
  • And have very significant compliance problems
    which are mitigated considerably by first dollar
    coverage of preventive services

Impacts of HDHP Providers
  • Retail care capture the high end and the
    desperate frequent fliers
  • Big impact on pediatrics, internal medicine
  • Scopers and gropers will be impacted by specific
    procedure deductibles but CDHP is a green light
    for the esoterica
  • Overuse by the rich and well, to-do under-use by
    the poor, sick
  • Supplier-induced demand will explode among the
    well insured and well heeled
  • Not brilliant for the chronically ill

Skin in the Game Matters
  • Trading down twice as often as trading up
  • Rapid increase in generic and therapeutic
  • Poor, chronically ill most effected
  • Starting to lead to adverse health outcomes like
    the uninsured
  • Dumb cost shifting without sophisticated chronic
    care management is not the right answer in the

A Market Approach to Costs
Employers believe that consumer pressure is a
powerful, underutilized lever for improving
quality and efficiency. They believe that higher
quality and lower cost will result if consumers
spend more of their own money for services they
believe are high quality, and if providers
respond by improving their performance. For this
strategy to succeed, consumers will have to be
activated to seek more efficient, higher quality
care and physicians will have to be rewarded for
delivering it. Robert Galvin, Sounding
Board NEJM, September 19, 2002
  • Transparency
  • Incentives and Rewards
  • Focus on Quality and Efficiency

Six Purchasing Elements for Value Breakthrough in
Health Care
Plan, Provider Vendor Accountability
  • Count Value Higher value options are identified
    and made available
  • 1. Health Plans are routinely assessed on 6 IOM
    dimensions of performance, starting with risk
    benefit-adjusted total cost PMPY, HEDIS and
    CAHPS and implementation of breakthrough
    elements 2-6
  • 2. Individual Providers and Provider
    Organizations are routinely assessed on 6 IOM
    dimensions of performance, starting with
    (allocative) efficiency, effectiveness, and
    patient centeredness
  • 3. Health Disease Management Programs and
    Treatment Options are routinely assessed on 6 IOM
    dimensions of performance
  • Make Value Count Higher value options are
    reinforced by the market
  • 4. Consumer Support enables consumers to
    recognize higher value plans, providers, health
    and disease management programs, and treatment
    options in a timely and individualized manner
  • 5. Benefit Architecture encourages all consumers
    to select high value options
  • 6. Provider Payment incents high performance
    today and re-engineering to enable higher
    performance tomorrow

What We Have Learned to Date
  • Consumers dont have the tools yet
  • Consumers will discriminate but will likely
    forego, defer or trade down more than trade up
  • Plan Level Story
  • Like choice and are slightly more likely to trade
    down when have to pay
  • Provider Level Story
  • Dont see much difference in quality
  • Tiered Networks West versus East
  • Havent paid to get a better doctor
  • Therapy Level Story
  • Trading down twice as often as trading up

Pay for Performance
  • Common metrics for quality measurement
  • Historic competition in the quality industry
  • Problems of data measures
  • Problems of electronic infrastructure
  • Significant financial incentives for providers
  • Penalty for poor performing providers
  • Disproportionate allocation of premium increases
    to best performers
  • Rewards could be based on objective historical
    measures (IHA), price/positioning (BHCAG),
    patient satisfaction (Wellpoint), medical group
    assessments (Pacificare), or redesign criteria
    (Leapfrog, PBGH)
  • Still very little at risk for highly compensated
    people like doctors compared to private sector
  • Need CMS to lead the charge
  • Need Daughter of Capitation

Examples of Pay for Performance (Arnold Epstein
et al, NEJM, Jan. 22, 2004)
  • United Kingdom has recently adopted a
    payment-for-performance initiative of
    unprecedented size and scope. Nearly a third of
    a G.P.s income will depend on practitioners
    performance as defined by 130 quality
  • GE, Partners Healthcare, Tufts Health Plan, Lahey
    Clinic and other employers in Massachusetts
    Bridges to Excellence program Maximum bonuses
    to physicians 55 per patient per year, with up
    to 100 for diabetes patients.
  • Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA), a
    collaboration of 6 California health plans, which
    cover 8 million lives. Up to 100 million will
    be available for but specific formula not yet
  • Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Hampshire
    reward physicians (very modestly) who provide
    certain preventive measures, based on HEDIS.

Value Purchasing Conclusions
  • Value purchasing is cost shifting in drag (unless
    we have information, build infrastructure, create
  • Value purchasing will grow because employers and
    health plans will push it
  • Because consumers dont see big value differences
    this will mean
  • Pay to stay (with my current doctors)
  • Trading down based on costs for commodities
  • Foregoing care or deferring care
  • Lack of adequate infrastructure will fuel public
  • Cost shifting as a gotcha rather than informed
  • Ideally it will move market but….
  • Will it save total costs? (International)
  • Do the value players have the capacity to absorb
    more patients (drugs its easy, hospitals and
    doctors its hard)
  • A triumph of ideology over infrastructure

HIT and Chronic Care
  • HIT is good thing dont get me wrong
  • EMR is a PET
  • It wont save money quickly
  • Expectations are too high, but ……
  • You gotta spend to save
  • You create a platform for improvement
  • We do not have another idea
  • Strong bi-partisan support conceptually ….. Show
    me the money
  • The power of simple disease registries what can
    you achieve on 3x5 cards and a telephone
  • Enough conferences already, lets get going
  • What about the vast rabble of American doctors?

Four Scenarios for Health Care 2004-2010
Minor Delivery System Reform
Bigger Government
Tiers RUs
National Rational Healthcare
Major Delivery System Reform
Scenario 1 Tiers R Us
  • The SUVing of American Healthcare
  • We pay more for choice and control
  • WIPDBS brings the market to Medicare
  • Chronically ill, low income beware
  • Catastrophic coverage for the very sick
  • The benefits of benefit design save employers
  • Trading down more often than trading up
  • A world of opportunity and risk
  • Private sector celebrated

Scenario 2 Bigger Government
  • Major backlash against cost shifting to consumers
  • 2008 election run on the retirement and health
    security issues of the middle class
  • Protect the baby-boom at all costs
  • Medicare Advantage for All or
  • Pay or Play or
  • Expanded Medicare and FICA tax or
  • Fill the donut holes, stick it to pharma, shore
    up the entitlement
  • Live with the consequences
  • Politicization of healthcare spending
  • Rationing and restriction
  • Lower Innovation
  • Lower profits
  • Equity over efficiency
  • Rising costs and taxes

Scenario 3 Market Nirvana
  • Break the Culture of Entitlement
  • Consumers learn to discriminate and pay
  • We buy care not cars
  • Incentives for health and personal responsibility
  • Catastrophic coverage and retail medicine for all
  • Utilization based on ability to pay
  • The rise of cheapo plans and delivery systems
  • Reaching high end retail customers is key
  • Delivery reform is market-based not
  • Opportunities abound for the entrepreneurial
  • Americas economic base as private sector
  • High quality, high service, low equity

Scenario 4 National Rational Healthcare
  • Universality and Delivery System Redesign
  • Evidence-based floors and ceilings
  • Pay for Performance
  • Daughter of Capitation
  • Reference-pricing and cost-effectiveness criteria
    for new technology
  • Financial rewards for clinical redesign
  • Universal Mandated Coverage
  • Employer and individual mandates or
  • Expanded Medicare Advantage or
  • Expanded Safety Net Delivery Floor
  • Expanded Access and Rational Design
  • Delivery System Innovation rewarded
  • All enabled by a 21st century IT and bioscience

Floors and Ceilings Not Universal Care
  • Tiers no matter what, so pick your poison
  • Tiered Insurance
  • No coverage for many
  • Shitty coverage for most
  • Great coverage for the rich and the lucky
  • Tiered delivery
  • Primary care clinics and adequately supported
    public hospitals
  • Community hospitals and economically restricted
    networks for the middle class
  • Its good to be rich because you get the best
    healthcare in the world
  • Dont be poor, dont get sick. Dont retire

A Closing Thought on Lust Despite Bob Dole as
Consumers who have talked to a doctor about a
drug that is advertised (2000).
Conclusion Republicans would have more sex if
it wasnt for their allergies.
