Primary Health Care Initiatives Presentation to MNIA Monday September 15 th 2008 Dr. Diamond Kassum – Chief Medical Information Officer, Manitoba eHealth
2 Topics Manitoba eHealth iEHR and Active Clinical Projects Primary Health Care PCISS PIN EMR selection and adoption Infoway initiatives Access Centres, CAR, Carelinks, BGSC
3 Manitoba eHealth – A Provincial Program Was announced by the Minister of Health on April 11, 2007 Develops information management processes, tools, and technology A single organization to ensure alignment with provincial and national objectives Will ensure a long-term province-wide approach Builds and acquires solutions that meet Manitobas health care needs
6 6 6 An electronic health record (EHR) is a secure and private lifetime record of an individuals health and care history, available electronically to authorized health providers. It facilitates the sharing of data – across the continuum of care, across healthcare delivery organizations and across geographies. Electronic Health Record (EHR) 6
8 Manitoba eHealths Terminology Manitobas Electronic Health Record (EHR) A secure and private lifetime record of a patients key health history, available to be viewed electronically by authorized health care providers, anywhere, anytime. Interoperable EHR (iEHR) The project to plan and implement Manitobas EHR. Electronic Medical Records (EMR) – clinic based A patient medical record in digital format that resides within an integrated system that allows authorized medical staff access to patient information. In this context, within a physician clinic. Electronic Patient Records (EPR) – hospital based Is a set of components that comprise the mechanism by which patient records are created, used, stored and retrieved. In this context, within a hospital.

15 In Flight Major Clinical Projects (Provincial) Radiology Information System / Picture Archiving Communications Systems (RIS/PACS) Implementing provincial system in 50 facilities Provincial Laboratory Information System (LIS) Implemented in WRHA facilities Infrastructure renewal and software upgrades 2008 Phase 1 provincial rollout started summer 2008
16 In Flight Major Clinical Projects (WRHA) Hospital Information System – (HISP AC) Phase 1 implementation of Electronic Patient Record (EPR) at SBGH complete (ADT and RR) Phase 2 at SBGH (order entry and clinical documentation) to be implemented in 2008 and 2009 Hospital Information System – Long Term Care (HISP LTC) Momentum MDS 39 WRHA PCH sites activated Emergency Department Information Systems (HISP EDIS) Implemented at HSC and SBGH in 2007 Implementation at Seven Oaks, Grace, Victoria and Concordia Hospitals 2008
17 Clinical Practice Expectations with the EHR Enhanced patient safety and quality of care Access to key demographics Recent encounters (who and why) Pertinent medical/surgical history Medication reconciliation Chronic disease identification and status Recent lab and DI info Reduced wait times (consults, integrated scheduling, information exchange)

21 Primary Care Information System Strategy (PCISS) Steering Committee Reports to DM FPs Mike Omichinski David Ross Chris Burnett Scott Kish Chair CIO Roger Girard
22 PIN: Physician Integrated Network 4 PHC Clinics Morden: Agassiz Medical Centre Winkler: CM Wiebe Clinic Winnipeg: Assiniboine Clinic Steinbach Medical Centre (control) Objectives To improve access to primary care To improve Primary Care Providers access to, and use of information To improve the work life for all primary care providers To demonstrate high quality primary care with a specific focus on Chronic Disease.
PIN Enablers Add ancillary staff (nurses, dietitians) Improve clinical reporting practices re screening and CDM Assess change management requirements Implement Quality Based Incentive Funding
PIN Screening and interventions PAP smears FOBT Flu shots CDM Type 2 diabetes Hypertension CCF 24
PIN evaluations Physician - qualitative Incentives Receptiveness Challenges Impacts Quantitative (Sept 2007 – March 2008 in 2 clinics) All screening tests increased Flu shots: 39% to 77% in one clinic 25
PIN issues EMR vendor compliance Data integrity Data validity Reasons for variations QBIF 26
PIN plan Steinbach conversion to active site 3 year funding to 2011 65 more physicians (4 – 6 more clinics) Activities Data collection and analysis Indicator development Funding and remuneration 27
28 PCISS – EMR selection EMR RFQ - select a set of approved EMRs to be adopted and implemented by physicians ASP and on site version PIN characteristics incorporated Written evaluations completed Demos start this week BC and AB models used for RFQ Down to 5 in AB (EMIS, EPIC, MedAccess, Practice Solutions and Wolf)
29 EMR adoption support PCISS Office – Physician Office Support System Supports the APL Checks compliance Supports change management Manages vendor contracts EMR funding Startup, data collection, benchmarks Not yet approved
30 Infoway initiatives Peer to Peer (P2P) Physicians Nurses Pharmacists Demonstration Sites Active EMR required
31 Physician Peer to Peer Network What is the PP2P Network? A program funded by Canada Health Infoway but operated by Manitoba eHealth, that provides a Physician Peer Leader as a mentor and advisor who will answer questions regarding EMRs and direct the physician to specialized resources if required. Why is the program being offered? Acquiring, implementing an optimizing an EMR into family practice is complex, and it makes sense to learn from others rather than go it alone. The premise of this program is that physicians will learn best from other physicians. Who are the Peer Leaders? The Peer Leaders are practicing Manitoba physicians with years of experience in implementing and using EMRs in a practice setting.
32 EMR Cost calculations An interactive EMR Worksheet has been developed by Dr. Chris Burnett. It includes cost assumptions for basic and optional technology components that reflect Dr. Burnetts own experience and the EMR product he uses. The worksheet allows you to input factors that apply to the clinic (e.g. number of workstations required) to estimate a rough cost.
33 Demonstration Sites Program Visit a clinic that has had an EMR in place for years and learn how they work. Or … visit several clinics to compare and contrast solutions.
Demonstration Site Simulated environment Faculty of Medicine simulation lab (Brodie) FP clinic environment Potential to compare systems Workflow analysis possible
35 Community Health WRHA Access Centres PARIS MH in BC Not an EMR Used for ancillary health May be replaced
36 Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR) DSS (Decision Support System) to help physicians determine which test to order Provides guidelines and best practice information Pilot in Childrens Hospital 2006-2007 FP pilot in Steinbach Family Medical Centre 2008-2009
37 CareLink – Patient Access to Quality Care (PAQC) MHHL initiative, Infoway funded Integration of services with PHC HealthLinks involvement Part 1: Supports self-managed care in between office visits Part 2: Provides access to PHC outside normal clinic hours and connects with FP
38 WTTF - BGSC (Bridging Generalist and Specialist Care) Fed. funded 2 year pilot project involving <150 FPs Develop, implement and test streamlined pathways for referrals to specialists Provides a catalogue of specialists Integrated with a Patient Access Registry Tool (PART) DSS – specialist investigations Web based communication pathways Selected referrals e.g. colorectal, back pain, mental health, orthopedics Planned for activation in March 2009
39 Other Resources Health Canadas EMR Toolkit [emrtoolkit.ca] Provides both a structured approach to acquiring an EMR and a compendium of information and links to other resources. Canadian EMR [canadianemr.ca] Site managed by Dr. Alan Brookstone, provides product comparisons, vendor profiles and personal commentary.
