1 Introducing the interRAI Home Care Talking the same language for effective care of older people

2 interRAI has developed an entire range of instruments and screeners to support assessment in a wide array of community and institutional settings INSTRUMENTS Long term care facility Assisted living (hostel) Home care Community health assessment Mental health Community mental health Acute care Post-acute care Palliative care Intellectual disability INSTRUMENTS Long term care facility Assisted living (hostel) Home care Community health assessment Mental health Community mental health Acute care Post-acute care Palliative care Intellectual disability SCREENERS Self-reliance Protocol (community care) Community & Hospital Intake Protocol (CHIP) Emergency room* Acute care* * In development SCREENERS Self-reliance Protocol (community care) Community & Hospital Intake Protocol (CHIP) Emergency room* Acute care* * In development interRAI specialises in aged care, disability and mental health services

3 The interRAI suite includes several instruments designed for application in community care… The interRAI Home Care is the most widely used instrument applied in the community setting interRAI – Community Mental Health Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment & Care Planning for Acute Care Minimum Data Set Test Version 1.04 [Multi-column format] International Copyright interRAI, Washington D.C., 2004 Minimum Data Set Test Version 1.04 [Multi-column format] International Copyright interRAI, Washington D.C., 2004 interRAI – Palliative Care Comprehensive Assessment & Care Planning for Palliative Care Minimum Data Set Test Version 1.04 [Multi-column format] International Copyright interRAI, Washington D.C., 2004 Minimum Data Set Test Version 1.04 [Multi-column format] International Copyright interRAI, Washington D.C., 2004 interRAI – Community Health Assessment Comprehensive Assessment & Care Planning for Acute Care Minimum Data Set Test Version 1.04 [Multi-column format] International Copyright interRAI, Washington D.C., 2004 Minimum Data Set Test Version 1.04 [Multi-column format] International Copyright interRAI, Washington D.C., 2004 interRAI - Home Care Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment & Care Planning for Acute Care Minimum Data Set Test Version 1.04 [Multi-column format] International Copyright interRAI, Washington D.C., 2004 Minimum Data Set Test Version 1.04 [Multi-column format] International Copyright interRAI, Washington D.C., 2004

5 The interRAI Home Care is designed as a general purpose assessment instrument for persons with complex care requirements It is now in its 3 rd version (the interRAI HC) Previous versions were the RAI-HC and RAI-HC 2.0 It is used extensively in many areas of North America and Europe, and is currently being trialled in Australia and New Zealand

7 interRAI instruments support management of entire episodes of care, not only admission assessment Re-assessment as needs change Standard review assessments Admission profiling Discharge profiling … one integrated system reduces duplication, improves documentation & increases care quality. Discharge plans Outcome assessment Quality monitoring Baseline assessment Progress review Establish care plans

8 A successful interRAI HC implementation brings a wide array of benefits … Integrated information systems across care settings Electronic information sharing Improving clinical skills and standards Consistent decision-making among clinicians and agencies Reduced documentation burden Quality monitoring Benchmarking among providers Casemix evaluation

9 Reducing duplication in the Australian setting The interRAI HC contains sufficient information to meet most of the ACAT, HACC and ACCR data reporting requirements Once completed, with appropriate software, it can automatically fulfil this function eliminating much of the duplicate paperwork

10 interRAI assessment instruments are built to specific principles and standards Each assessment creates a minimum data set which provides an entire range of measures to assist in care planning, client monitoring and administration. High quality data is COLLECTED ONCE and then used for multiple purposes. This encourages accuracy and reduces duplication All items are carefully crafted and tested across many countries to ensure good reliability and cultural appropriateness

11 Profiling of cognitive, functional and psycho- social status including: Screening for common geriatric syndromes Risk assessment for adverse events Measuring severity of disability Identifying opportunities for prevention or improvement Assessment of quality of care being delivered Evaluation of case complexity (casemix) The interRAI HC performs many tasks - not just recording observations

12 The interRAI HC is not only a data set It includes… Data collection forms a set of clinical observations and measures A training manual including definitions, case studies and clinical protocols Codesets computer code to enable software to calculate scales, quality indicators, clinical assessment protocols and casemix groupings It is a system to support assessment, care planning, communication, quality monitoring and administration.

13 The interRAI model Assessment Minimum Data Set Minimum Data Set Outcome Measurement Scales Quality Indicators Case Mix Care planning protocols

14 Clinical decision support: interRAI systems help clinicians to… Interpret observations Organise information Plan care Monitor clinical progress

15 Logic systems are applied to assist clinicians to interpret their recorded observations These algorithms calculate scales, screeners, clinical assessment protocols (CAPs), quality indicators and casemix groupings The development of algorithms is based on extensive and ongoing research performed by interRAI… interRAI makes extensive use of clinical databases provided by user organisations to undertake this work

16 The clinical algorithms enable screening for common conditions … Screeners and scales are validated against gold standard clinical assessment or best available existing tools PRESENCE OF: Dementia Delirium Depression Malnutrition Dehydration Elder abuse Social isolation PRESENCE OF: Dementia Delirium Depression Malnutrition Dehydration Elder abuse Social isolation RISK OF: Pressure ulcer Falls Institutionalisation RISK OF: Pressure ulcer Falls Institutionalisation

20 Something for everyone… Clinicians Service administrators Planners and policy makers Caseload profiling Better information for service planning Ability to benchmark within and among service providers Improved productivity Improved clinical information Electronic information sharing Clinical decision support Improved reliability & consistency Reduced paperwork Caseload profiling Ability to allocate resources among services and clients Service quality monitoring Improved productivity

21 Implementation of an interRAI instrument requires careful planning The interRAI Home Care is one important building block to improving performance in community care… Consideration of other aspects of implementation may result in failure Organisations must consider: how the instrument will be used; who will perform assessments; how often they will be repeated; what reports are required – when and for whom; how will training be conducted - for existing and future staff; which software to use.

22 Success Three building blocks to success…. Clinical data systems: interRAI HC Clinical data systems: interRAI HC Work processes Work processes Software

23 Training is important… Good training enables: A broad understanding of the interRAI approach and vision Detailed knowledge of item definitions and scoring leading to improved reliability Interpretation of scales, screeners and quality indicators Application of Clinical Assessment Protocols for care planning Use of software applications

24 How training is best delivered… Small group, interactive format lead by a facilitator with extensive clinical experience Review of all clinical items aided by the HC manual Interpretation of scales, Clinical Assessment Protocols and screeners Software utilisation Interpretation of reports Training requires approximately 3 days, which may be divided into 2 steps (2 + 1 days)

25 The interRAI HC is a powerful clinical tool that will… Support clinical evaluation Enable electronic communication Reduce duplication and paperwork and… IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF CARE
