Preliminary Medication History Pilot Results
(RRMC)
  • 1 of patients opting out
  • High degree of data accuracy
  • With Vermont Medicaid and BCBSVT participating,
    data available on average for 72 of patients
  • Data availability as high as 85 of patients,
    during some periods

14
Medication History Pilot
  • Benefits
  • Saves time reconciling medications
  • More complete and accurate data
  • Gives practitioners better information to make
    clinical decisions on
  • Less chance for adverse drug events
  • Better quality care
  • A more efficient system

15
VITLs Services to VDHs Blueprint for Health
  • Five-year contract signed in October
  • VITL to provide comprehensive chronic disease
    data services to VDH
  • GE Healthcare is prime contractor
  • Orion Health is subcontractor

16
Blueprint Chronic Care Information System (CCIS)
  • Data on diabetes and other chronic conditions
    sent from physician EMRs and registries to GE
    Healthcare
  • Data is processed and returned for physician
    analysis using Orion Healths disease management
    application
  • Physicians use information to improve treatment

17
Benefits of Blueprint CCIS
  • More comprehensive data for clinical decisions
  • A view of the whole patient, including care
    provided by other physicians and in other
    settings
  • Identify and manage disease before it becomes
    chronic
  • More effective and efficient care

18
Blueprint CCIS Current Status
  • Requirements phase generated more than 1,000
    pages of material to define what the system is
    required to do
  • Requirements work pushed schedule back by about
    two months
  • Design phase to be completed in July
  • First user online by late fall

19
Vermont Health Information Technology Plan
  • Information from the RTI, medication history
    Blueprint projects will help shape the plan.
  • Will contain recommendations for the General
    Assembly and Administration to encourage rapid
    HIT adoption.
  • Being written by a workgroup of more than 30
    volunteers, due July 1

20
Health Information Exchange

VITL Links Different EHRs Together
25
Potential Sources of ROI
  • Time savings in daily operations
  • Reduction of duplicate tests
  • Reduction in adverse drug events
  • Formulary compliance
  • Better compliance with care plans
  • Less administrative work
  • Better disease management

26
Public Values EHRs
  • 51 of consumers are willing to pay for EHRs, if
    the price is reasonable
  • 67 of consumers say EHRs are important in choice
    of physician
  • More than 70 of consumers say EHRs (with patient
    portal) would help them ask more informed
    questions and understand choice of treatment
    options

Source Accenture survey 2/26/07
27
Physicians Value EHRs
  • 90 of physicians say EHRs allow for easier
    sharing and gathering of information
  • 88 of physicians say EHRs provide access to more
    comprehensive patient information
  • 80 of doctors say EHRs reduce clinical errors

Source Accenture survey 2/26/07
28
Physicians Without EHRs
  • There are 634 primary care physicians in Vermont
    and 978 specialists
  • Estimates are 25 of physicians already have EHRs
  • VITL is analyzing our physician EHR inventory to
    determine more precise adoption rate, and to
    identify practices ready to implement

29
Reasons Why Physicians Lack EHRs
  • Cost of software, hardware and implementation
    averages 50,000 per doctor
  • Requires major adjustment to workflow
  • Reduced patient volume while on learning curve
  • Primary care physicians lack the capital to invest

30
Interim Health Information Technology Fund
  • Fund established under H.229, goal is to raise at
    least 1 million
  • Voluntary contributions from insurers,
    self-insured employers, community foundations,
    and others
  • VITL to work with Secretary of Administration on
    fundraising

31
Interim Health Information Technology Fund
  • Vendor RFP by Oct. 1
  • VITL to establish criteria and award conditions
    for pilot sites by Nov. 1
  • Licenses to be awarded by Jan. 1.
  • VITLs annual report will provide assessment on
    interim funds progress, recommendations for
    additional funding and legislation

32
Take-Aways
  • There are many potential benefits to EHRs and
    health information exchange
  • To realize those benefits, further discussion is
    needed on
  • Balancing patient privacy with physician access
  • Financing of EHRs and other physician assistance
  • Investments in other core components

33
Future CollaborationThis can be done, and we are
here to help!
  • Some Ideas
  • Meet regularly to share project ideas, lessons
    learned, etc
  • Share application or support components as they
    are developed
  • Figure out how to enable interstate
    interoperability
  • Team on proposals to the Feds (e.g. CDC
    Biosurveillance)
