18
Provider Respondents
19
Does your facility currently have an electronic
health record (EHR)?
20
When do you plan to implement an EHR?
21
Providers with no current plans to implement an
EHR
22
What was a driving force in implementing an EHR?
23
What are the major barriers to your plans for
implementation of an EHR?
24
Provider IT Infrastructure
  • 36 have redundancy hardware for information
    systems
  • 51 system provides redundancy (backup) of data
  • 86 facility systems are accessible with
    authentication
  • 87 facilitys employees use a unique user
    identifier to access their information systems
  • 100 main authentication method currently used is
    passwords
  • 60 employee training for password authentication
    and auditing to maintain password security
  • 69 facility-forced password changes

    employees is NOT considered a barrier to
    increasing use of electronic records

Focus Groups
33
Locations
34
Scenarios
  • Treatment/patient care
  • Payment
  • Regional health information organizations
  • Law enforcement
  • Prescription drugs
  • Operations/marketing
  • Public health/bioterrorism
  • Employee health information
  • State government oversight

35
Focus Group Assignment
  • Identify the issues of the scenario
  • Describe how the situation in the scenario was
    handled in their particular work setting
  • Describe the ideal practice standard
  • Identify barriers that could possibly prevent the
    ideal practice standard from occurring

36
Ideal Practice Recommendations
  • Easy, secure access to patient information
  • Interoperability (between computer systems)
  • Medication prescribing
  • Standardized regulations

37
Easy, secure access to patient information
  • Common patient identifier
  • Online patient authorization to release medical
    information
  • Use of a Continuity of Care Record (CCR)
  • Use of an EHR by all healthcare providers with a
    standardized format
  • Use of a Picture Archiving and Communication
    System (PACS) for easy access to all types of
    images
  • Use of a data repository
  • Automatic alert for reportable diseases
  • Access to information by third party payers for
    reimbursement only

38
Interoperability (between computer systems)
  • Universal or standardized formats
  • Use of a Computerized Physician Order Entry
    (CPOE) system by all healthcare practitioners

39
Medication prescribing
  • Online formulary list of all third party payers
  • Computerized alert system when ordering
    medications to prevent interactions, overdosing,
    etc.

40
Standardized regulations
  • Uniformity of laws between states
  • Federal laws do not conflict with state laws

41
Common Barriers Identified
  • Lack of resources
  • Technology issues
  • Legislation
  • Interoperability
  • Consumer issues

42
Lack of resources
  • Cost of
  • staff education and training
  • the need for specific knowledge of HIPAA
    regulations regarding Release of Information
    (ROI) in an emergency such as bioterrorism
  • time to train staff on new policies and
    procedures regarding the use of the EHR system
    and hardware
  • needed hardware
  • upgrading of hardware as technology and
    requirements change
  • needed software
  • maintaining support once implementation is
    complete

43
Technology issues
  • All facilities not utilizing the EHR, CPOE, PACS,
    etc.
  • Physician/staff resistance to new technology
  • Concern for security, confidentiality, and access
  • Password maintenance
  • Network maintenance
  • Planned and unplanned down time of the system
  • Unavailability of broad-band transmission in some
    areas

44
Legislation
  • State-to-state differing regulations
  • Conflict with federal and state laws
  • Ownership of the medical information
  • Legal medical record

45
Interoperability
  • Many EHR vendors and lack of interoperability
    between the systems
  • Lack of universal standards for different systems
    communicating with each other

46
Consumer issues
  • Consumer education
  • Internet availability in rural areas
  • Security and confidentiality concerns
  • Ability to opt out of a Regional Health
    Information Organization (RHIO)

47
Legal Analysis
48
Information Reviewed
  • SDHIMA Legal Manual
  • Focus Group Scenarios
  • Relevant journal and Law Review articles
  • Additional information from related websites

49
Findings
  • Current South Dakota statutes and administrative
    rules governing health information exchange need
    refining to better comply with federal HIPAA
    standards.
  • There is a need for plain English wording or
    interpretation to HIPAA compliance within South
    Dakota. Such a wording will help South Dakota
    physicians, hospitals, clinicians, insurers,
    researchers and managed care organizations limit
    the opportunity for legal and financial risk.
  • South Dakota should implement a system of
    balanced interests between patients and
    providers.

50
Recommendations
51
Recommendations
  • Purpose of study was gathering information.
  • This section represents an effort to analyze,
    interpret, and condense that information.
  • Goal
  • Clear, well-motivated, broad, actionable items
  • address the issues as South Dakota migrates
    toward electronic health information systems
  • Context
  • Electronic Health Information Systems are coming

52
Recommendations
  • Quick Summary
  • Develop a Center
  • Continue Research
  • Develop and Deliver Education
  • Design and Develop Prototype Systems
  • Begin to Address Legal Issues

53
Develop a Center supporting Electronic Health
Information Exchange
  • Develop a center or organization to provide
    united and focused leadership as well as provide
    continuity to the EHR adoption process, along
    with information, support and resources for
    electronic health care in South Dakota.
  • Keys
  • Balance among disparate stakeholders
  • Broad view supporting exchange of electronic
    health information without other agenda

54
Continue Research and Investigation
  • Need to fill gaps
  • Need to increase participation
  • Need to examine resources both internal and
    external which can help to smooth the path to
    effective electronic health information

55
Education and Training
  • An unavoidable issue with new technology
  • understanding and using it effectively
  • Affects consumers and service providers
  • Mitigate this through advance preparation
  • Education and Training
  • From broad and general (What is an EHR?)
  • To focused and specific (e.g., choose a privacy
    option or enter a chosen option for a consumer)

56
Prototype
  • Build systems to provide some of the services to
    some of the stakeholders
  • Focus on opportunities
  • Leverage existing systems -- extending or
    combining
  • Focus on gaps
  • What pieces arent being addressed elsewhere?
  • Where is there a failure to communicate?
  • Champion a complete, balanced solution
  • Focus on standardization

57
Begin to Address Legal Environment
  • Slow process
  • Need leaders, perseverance and constituency
  • Goals Clarity and Balance
  • Uncertainty can be a serious impediment
  • Build on South Dakotas advantage a relatively
    small, agile, cooperative environment for health
    care information systems among the industry,
    consumers, and government

58
Recommendations Review
  • Develop a center to lead the effort.
  • Conduct more research to understand the
    challenges and possibilities.
  • Develop and deliver education to prepare both
    consumers and service providers.
  • Prototype systems to design, combine, and extend
    functionality.
  • Address health care information law to bring
    greater clarity and certainty to the environment.
