What does Pay for Performance mean to you? Payments for better care coordination between home, hospital and offices for patients with chronic illnesses. A set of hospital quality measures reported to CMS that will increase the payments hospitals receive for each discharge. Hospitals that do not meet a threshold on quality will be subject to reductions in payment. Rewards to physicians for improving health outcomes by the use of health information technology in the care of chronically ill Medicare patients.health information technology
To measure or not to measure… As a disincentive, CMS has proposed eliminating payments for negative consequences of care that result in injury, illness or death. This rule, effective October 2008, would reduce payments for medical complications such as "never events" as defined by the National Quality Forum, including hospital infectionsNational Quality Forum Wish you could know beforehand what challenges lay ahead?
How is performance measured? Current P4P programs rely on a limited set of performance measures. The dimensions of performance vary across P4P programs. For hospitals and physicians, the measure sets focus on: » preventive services (e.g., influenza and childhood vaccines), » a few common clinical conditions (e.g., diabetes, heart attack, congestive heart failure, pregnancy and newborns), and » complications (e.g., surgical infections). Some P4P programs provide financial rewards for investments in health information technology (e.g., computerized provider data entry systems) shown to have a beneficial effect on safety and quality. nter lato
How does Plato assist you? Uses Natural Language Understanding Technology to retrieve information from your transcribed documents, e.g. H&Ps, Operative and DS reports Automatically answers Platos core measure indicator questions for AMI, CHF, PN, and SCIP Via an interface with your core measure vendor product, the two systems are compared, checking for both presence of charts and congruence between charts Data from both Plato and your core measure product is now available for trending, tracking, and predictive analysis through reports, spreadsheets and graphs
Step 1: Natural Language Understanding Plato accepts transcribed documents and processes the document text, creating an understanding of the document in much the same way a human being does Plato then determines whether the document refers to a patient who is a core measure candidate, and if so, passes this information to the P4P module Plato/NLU P4P
Step 2: From NLU to Plato P4P From Platos understanding of the document comes the answers to the core measure indicator questions as seen in this CHF excerpt PAST SURGICAL HISTORY: Significant for coronary artery bypass grafting and hysterectomy. SOCIAL HISTORY: The patient has smoked one pack per day for 30 years. She denies alcohol. She lives with one of her daughters. She reports that her daughter consistently ignores her, does not offer her any help, and make it difficult for her to make her medical appointments… …3) The patient will be scheduled for lower extremity angiograms and follow up in Dr. Two's clinic for possible intervention. 4) Patient was advised to quit smoking and counseled on effective smoking cessation strategies. 5) Consult to Nutritionist for diet counseling for low sodium diet. 6) Consultation to smoking cessation clinic. 7) Prescription for Nicoderm provided. Allopurinol 100 mg p.o. q.d.; digoxin mg p.o. q.d.; isosorbide dinitrate 40 mg p.o. b.i.d.; aspirin 325 mg p.o. b.i.d.; vitamin E 800
Step 3: From Plato P4P - Results Analyzers Charts Reports Plato P4P data and core measure vendor data are merged to create complete picture of organizations status Plato P4P Core Measure Vendor Product
