UDI (PCOR DATABASE) Recommended Project Governance January 2012
Background HTG was originally developed to accelerate SCM standards adoption and implementation A leadership team was established and made up of the SCM executives at each institution to oversee the efforts. An Adoption and Implementation team was established and made up of those driving these efforts at each institution (within SCM). HTG leadership desires to work ahead of the implementation and would like focus on research and development efforts that make full use of SCM data such as PCOR, CER and Surveillance. Members of HTG recently individually agreed to act as a think tank for contracts awarded to Cornell and Harvard that pertain to UDI. Mercy and Mayo recently agreed to work jointly to develop solutions surrounding the use of SCM information.
Proposed Solution Create a Research and Development Team. This team would focus on developing new ways to use SCM information to drive improved patient care outcomes (both financial as well as well-being). This team would be driven by physician expertise but supplemented with experts from SCM, IT, Revenue Cycle, EMR, etc. They would develop the requirements as well as field test solutions. They would also seek funding for research and development as well as the adoption and implementation.
Proposed HTG Structure HTG Leadership Research and Development Adoption and Implementation Overall mission, objectives and oversight. Lead Adopters and Implementation of industry standards. Solution development and testing.
Research and Development Team Physician led. Staffed with experts that can analyze physician requirements. Develop and test solutions. Clearly document recommendations and short comings in the overall environment. Seek funding for research efforts through grants and awards.
