  • CCNV awarded 1.4M to defray implementation cost
    for EMRs at all Federally Qualified Health
  • Following a two-year procurement process, CCNV
    unanimously selected eClinicalworks system

Establishing a Policy Framework
In Pursuit of Data Exchange ROI Through
Administrative Systems
Opportunity for Medicaid Reform VHEN
Aligned with a National Strategy CORE
  • Administrative Savings Opportunity
  • 30 providers submit on paper
  • 40 of claims rejected in first pass
  • 40 of rejected claims are eventually paid
  • CAQH Builds on HIPAA
  • CORE rules expand eligibility information
    to include copay rates, network status, etc.
  • Early implementers include nearly 20 national
    organizations covering more than 50 million lives
    in the US
  • Combined with an effective strategy to drive
    increased adoption CORE will improve the quality
    of data available at the point of care
  • NEHEN A Model for Success
  • An insurance plan is saving more than 720K
    annually in transaction fees by switching from
    clearinghouse-based eligibility verification to
    direct verification supported by NEHEN technology

The VHEN Charter
Following an initial summit in Richmond with
Virginia payers and providers discussing scope
and focus for a Virginia Administrative Exchange
modeled on NEHEN, the VHEN workgroup formalized a
charter in October 2007. Charter members include
9 Health Plans and 7 Health Systems including
MCV, UVA, Riverside, Anthem-Wellpoint, Aetna, and
Leveraging Commonwealth Resources for VHEN

MBC Virginias Tobacco Commission approves
750k towards broadband access for rural
clinics Virginia launches Virginia Telehealth
Network to increase services that elevate care

The Opportunity
In 2007, Governor Kaine formalized the Broadband
Roundtable to better understand emerging
technologies, applications, and financial models
to encourage communities to provide broadband
access. Interested parties should encourage HIMSS
to contact Gene Sullivan at the UVA Telemedicine
Represents T-1 Level Service or Above
Opportunity for HIMSS ePrescribing
Two NHIN Awardees Positioned for Clinical
Exchange Leadership
The Opportunity
In 2007, Governor Kaine awarded three Health IT
Innovation Grants two winners, CareSpark and
MedVirginia secured NHIN funding with several
use cases that would involve physician
participation in data exchange. Interested
parties should encourage HIMSS to contact Liesa
Jenkins at CareSpark and Michael Matthews at
Opportunity for HIMSS Web-Based Billing
Medicaid Committed to Low-Cost Web-Based
Transactions Portal
MA-based consortium of payers offer single portal
to conduct HIPAA transactions
The system simplifies existing payer
functionality to minimize overhead costs
The Opportunity
DMAS is considering a proposal to Governor
Kaines Productivity Investment Fund
(applications due November 9th) to build a
low-cost web-based claims application VHEN would
consider an all-payer solution. Interested
parties should encourage HIMSS to write a letter
of support for this initiative to the Governor.
Kaine Leads in Adopting Federal Policy on
Standards, Transparency
Executive Order 42
Accountability and Transparency Executive Order 42
Data Interoperability Standards HB 2198 (Nixon)
HB 2198 requires that all Health Records Systems
purchased by the Commonwealth adhere to accepted
standards of interoperability.
Governor signs Executive Order 42 calling for
standards compliance for all public health IT
procurements and improved transparency on pricing
and quality
Combined with the national effort to certify
Health Records systems and Executive Order 42, it
creates a environment where data can be shared
Virginias Hospitals through the VHHA support
Transparency through open access to charge
information through PricePoint.
A Federal Priority
President Bush signed an Executive Order
directing Federal Agencies that administer or
sponsor health insurance programs to increase
transparency in pricing and quality while
encouraging the adoption of Health IT.

Missing Clinical Information Affects Care
Vision of the Future Data-Driven Medicine
Physicians Increasingly Reluctant to Seek
Supporting the Diagnosis Decision
A Virginia Story
"One of the things I try to model for my
residents is that I'm trying to learn new things
even though I've been doing this for a long
time."  Pediatrician Stephen Borowitz
  • When presented with unusual symptoms that do not
    match the current diagnosis doctors can turn to
    Isabel which is easily accessible on all clinical
    units at UVAHS.
  • Isabel can provide a list of diagnoses, some of
    which might be outside the normal pattern doctors
    can fall into.
  • It does not replace the decision-making of the
    Doctor but it does provide powerful tools to
    augment the memory of each doctor.

Generating a List of Likely Suspects
Hand-washing Mining Data to Save Lives
Identifying the Value of Hand-washing Through
Data Analytics
A 19th Century Super-Cruncher
Institute for Healthcare Improvement
Goal Save 100,000 lives a year Method Look at
how people are dying in hospitals and then
determine if there are any large-scale
statistical evidence that could point the way
towards a solution
As far back as the 1840s, doctors have worked to
analyze data to improve healthcare
interventions. Dr. Semmelweis noticed an
alarmingly high mortality rate for infants born
in his division (18) compared to only 4 in
another OB group.
Results Dr. Berwick found that systematic
hand-washing along with a few other changes could
account for as many as 25,000 lives a year in
just ICU patients.
After careful review, he instituted a mandatory
hand-washing program and observed the mortality
rate fall to 1.8 Unfortunately, his work was
not accepted by his peers, delaying data-driven
medical efforts for over a century
