Macroeconomic Forces Shaping Practice Environment
  • The President's Reform Agenda Can Make The Health
    Care System More Efficient While Continuing To
    Lead The World In Cutting Edge Medicine.
    Americans should be able to choose their health
    care based on individual needs and preferences
    and easily obtain understandable information
    about the price and quality of the care they
    receive. Insurance should be portable and
    affordable. The President proposes to improve
    health care through initiatives to provide
    increased stability and peace of mind for working
    families across the country. The President's
    health care agenda includes
  • Expanding Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)
  • Making Health Insurance More Portable
  • Improving Information On Price And Quality To
    Make Health Care More Transparent
  • Leveling The Playing Field For Individuals And
    Small Business Employees
  • Passing Medical Liability Reform
  • Improving Access To Health Information Technology
  • Assisting Vulnerable Americans

Newest reform Consumerism ?
ERA of Managed Care
DRGs Introduced
Patient Bill of Rights
What is behind Pay for Performance Movement?
(Remember DRGs)
  • The payment reduction shows the need for more
    effective ways to pay physicians that help them
    improve quality and avoid unnecessary costs,
    said CMS Administrator Mark B. McClellan, M.D.,
    Ph.D.  CMS is working with members of Congress,
    physician organizations, and other healthcare
    stakeholders on ways to improve physician payment
    without adding to overall Medicare costs, if at
    all possible.  These collaborations build on
    Medicares performance-based payment
    demonstrations, value-based payment reforms
    implemented in the private sector, and especially
    promising measures and reform ideas from leading
    physician organizations.

Why this can workExample of the STENO study
  • 80 Type 2 diabetic patients with microalbuminuria
    randomized to
  • Control
  • Regular care
  • Intensive intervention
  • Step-wise introduction of lifestyle and
    pharmacological interventions aimed at keeping
  • glycated hemoglobin lt6.5
  • blood pressure lt130/80mmHg
  • total cholesterol lt175mg/dl
  • and triglycerides lt150mg/dl.
  • reduction in intake dietary fat regular exercise
    and smoking cessation.

N Engl J Med 348383-393,2003
Results of the STENO study
  • Intermediate Outcomes
  • Event Rate
  • End Points
  • death from CVD, nonfatal MI, nonfatal stroke,
    revascularization, and amputation.

Results of the STENO studyThe business case and
The right thing to do
  • Endpoints after 7.8 years of follow-up
  • 44 of patients in the conventional care arm had
  • 24 of patients in the intensive treatment arm
    had events (significantly lower)
  • In addition to the 53 reduction in CVD events
    the intensive treatment group had a reduction of
    nephropathy, retinopathy, and autonomic
    neuropathy by 61, 58, and 63 respectively

N Engl J Med 348383-393,2003
Return on Investment
  • For every 100 patients treated aggressively
  • Achieving the numbers in this study
  • There are 19 less events over 7.8 years
  • 2.4 less events per year
  • Estimate costs of events
  • Conservative at 10,000
  • Savings in this highly managed population of

What does this mean for CAP?
  • Of the 3,149 diabetic patients in the CAP
    registry 2,176 had screening for albuminuria
    (69) and 831had albuminuria (38)
  • Who do we look compared to the STENO population?

CAP Results compared to STENO Abstract
What does this mean to future practicing
  • Shift in payment from services to product.
  • Issues with locus of control.
  • Shift in focus from seeing patients and doing
    procedures to evidenced based medicine and
    managing populations
  • Rewards for
  • Tools to identify chronic disease populations
  • Implementation of consistent (electronic) methods
    of assuring laboratory and preventive medicine
  • Increased capacity to connect with and educate
    patients over time
  • Use of evidenced based medicine

What does this mean to future practicing
  • Key ingredients
  • Population Perspective
  • We teach patient care very well, how well do we
    teach physicians the population perspective and
    systems of care
  • Evolving but opportunities exist to define
    osteopathic training in this venue
  • Improving resident interest in programs
  • Managing systems of care
  • Increasing efficiency and improving outcomes
    using community or local resources
  • Group patient teaching
  • Developing disease management capabilities locally

What does this mean to future practicing
  • Key ingredients
  • Registry
  • Ability to track populations is a key component
    in managing a practice from a population
  • Key component of most P4P programs executed
  • Identify populations and trends of interest
  • As a function of EMR
  • Moving from a passive to active approach to
    Electronic Medical Record
  • CAP as a training tool in this venue

What does this mean to future practicing
  • Key ingredients
  • Support to break through barriers or understand
    why we can not effect the outcome
  • Physician
  • Perspective and culture
  • Patient
  • Taught and incentivised
  • System
  • What resources do we need to systematically
    achieve good to excellent outcomes

Population management
  • What payers, employers and patients want.
  • NCQA Practice Connections
  • CMS Demonstration Project
  • Medicare 646
  • Realigning health care by changing financial
  • United Health Care
  • Discussions

Research Agenda
  • Results from the STENO study and interest
    expressed by Medicare to develop a budget
    neutral approach to realigning incentives
    suggest that there are opportunities to fill in
    the knowledge gaps in applied health services
  • This is a fertile ground for research dollars and

  • Teaching our osteopathic residents to be part of
    the problem or part of the solution?
  • Practicing osteopathic physicians should welcome
    objective measures of the care we deliver and the
    ability to compete on a level playing field.
  • The foundation of what consumers, employers, and
    payers want is what primary care can provide
    Co-ordinated cognitive care

  • Questions about the environment?
  • Similar dissimilar assessments?
