11 Today’s Agenda [to be customized based on event’s start and end time]
12 The Clinical Challenge Diabetes Care in Family Practice CDA Guidelines: Therapeutic Goals and Organization of Care
13 Diabetes Care in Family Practice The challenge: Diabetes is a complicated, growing disease: –More than 9 million Canadians live with diabetes or prediabetes 1 –Risk of CV death is 2-4 times greater than in the general population 2 –25% of patients with diabetes suffer from depression 2 –11% of patients with diabetes have 3 or more co-morbidities 2 1.Canadian Diabetes Association. 2.Canadian Diabetes Association – 2008 Clinical Practice Guidelines. “Despite increasing evidence about the benefits of effective management, little progress has been made in providing effective care” —CDA Guidelines Committee
14 Primary Care Challenge Average practice has between patients with diabetes 1 Patients with diabetes visit their family physician on average 8 times per year 2 Thus, the burden on the clinic is significant (this does not even include the burden of those with cardiometabolic risk) 1 Most recent A1C test results (n = 2,337) DICE: Diabetes in Canada Evaluation study 2 1.Steering Group Communications. 2.Harris SB, et al. Diabetes Res Clin Pract 2005; 70:90-7. Controlled A1C 51% Uncontrolled A1C 49% One in two type 2 diabetes patients in Canada are not at target (< 7%) Mean A1C = 7.3%
15 Chronic disease management for diabetes and vascular disease could result in the avoidance of annually…… 1 8,000 heart attacks 4,000 strokes 8,000 unnecessary deaths 1,200 cardiac bypass and balloon angioplasties 369 amputations 1.Q Monitor, Ontario Health Quality Council 2008 Report On Ontario’s Health System. Few mechanisms exist to implement practical solutions
16 Therapeutic Goals CDA Guidelines: 1 Goal of treatment is to minimize the risks of the macrovascular and microvascular complications of diabetes by aiming for the following metabolic targets Ontario Ministry of Health: Quality Targets for Primary Care Physicians 2 Example: Baseline Diabetes Dataset Initiative Targets 1.The Canadian Diabetes Association 2008 Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Prevention and Management of Diabetes in Canada., Can J Diabetes. 2008;32(suppl 1):S1-S201 2.Ontario Ministry of Health- Quality Targets for Primary Care Physicians:
17 CDA Recommended Diabetes Surveillance 1.Harris S., Lank C. eds. Elsevier Timely screening for complications and aggressive management of risk factors are integral parts of diabetes management.
18 CDA Organization of Care Guidelines 1.Clement M. Organization of Care: Key elements from the CDA 2008 Clinical Practice Guidelines Good Outcomes for people living with diabetes depend on: The “System”….. A Team Based Approach
19 Team Approach Impact on Patient Outcomes: What does the data show us? Team Effectiveness
20 Hollander Report: Primary Care Practices Are the Cornerstone of Effective Chronic Disease Management Health outcomes are a function of continuity of care by the same family physician 1 Attachment, or the frequency that a patient seeks services from the same medical practice, keeps patients healthier and reduces costs 1 Group Patient Visits may facilitate attachment by enhancing patient access, time with the medical team, and supportive services provided 2,3 1.Hollander MJ, et al. Healthcare Quarterly 2009;12(4): Steering Group Communications. 3.Noffsinger EB. The Permanente Journal 1999 ; 3 (3):
21 Increasing Value for Money in the Canadian Health- care System: New Findings on the Contribution of Primary Care Services 1.Hollander MJ, et al. Healthcare Quarterly 2009;12(4): $ (CDN) Percentage of Attachment Diabetes and CHF – RUB 5 ( ) $13,250 Diabetes Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) Proportion of Total Cost Attributable to Hospital Costs 65% Cost Reduction Attributable to Attachment $16,114
22 Primary Care is Essential for Optimal Chronic Disease Management Individuals with a primary care practitioner that they saw on a regular basis had lower rates of hospital use, specialist use and costs 1 1.Hollander MJ. et al. Healthcare Quarterly 2009;12(4): Attachment to a practice was the best predictor of a patient’s overall healthcare costs – more so than other variables such as patient age, gender, income or physician gender and practice span. 1
23 Shared Medical Appointments Based on the Chronic Care Model A Quality Improvement Project to Address the Challenges of Patients with Diabetes with High CV Risk 1 Setting: Primary care clinic High CV risk defined as one or more of the following: –A1C levels >9% –Systolic Blood Pressure (SBP) > 160 mm Hg –Low Density Lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) >3.53 mmol/L Patient characteristics for each group were similar 1.Kirsh S, et al. Qual Saf Health Care 2007;16: AIM: Improve outcomes for patients with diabetes at high cardiovascular risk via Group Patient Visit (GPV) implementation
24 Better Cardiovascular Risk Reduction was Observed in Patients Attending Group Patient Visits (GPV) 1 1.Kirsh s, et al. Qual Saf Health Care 2007;16: Patients participating in GPV experienced greater benefits in HbA1c, LDL-c and SBP levels compared to usual core patients Mean % GVPControl 2.2 Mean mmol/L % GVPControl Mean mm Hg GVPControl = -0.30= 1.44= 0.14= 0.41= 2.54= HbA1c P= LDL-c P= 0.29 SBP P= 0.04 BaselineFollow-upControl n= 35GPV n=44

52 STEP 3: ORGANIZATION OF PATIENT CARE For more information see the Diabetes Practice Guide Advanced Access –A structured and systematic method which ensures patients access to primary health care team at a convenient time “Diabetes Days” Batching –Organized and coordinated team-based care for DM patients –Utilize a “batching” scheduling strategy to manage populations of patients Group Patient Visits –An expanded medical appointment delivering most elements of an individual visit Coordinated Team Scheduling –MD and RN collaborative patient visits Interdisciplinary Patient Visits- Sample Visit Activities –The right clinician at the right time Step 3C: Scheduling Options
53 STEP 3: ORGANIZATION OF PATIENT CARE A structured and systematic method which ensures patients access to primary healthcare team at a convenient time Same Day Bookings ~80% of all appointments: Patients call and book an appointment “today” Advanced Booking ~20% of all appointments Preventative appointments- e.g. quarterly appointments for DM Labs pre-appointment Self care and goal setting Six elements/conditions: 1.Understand the supply/capacity and demand 2.Balance supply and demand 3.Reduce the number of appointment types 4.Develop contingency plans to sustain the system 5.Reduce and shape the demand for visits 6.Increase effective supply: transfer physicians’ functions that can be done by someone else Advanced Access For more information see the Diabetes Practice Guide
54 STEP 3: ORGANIZATION OF PATIENT CARE Organized and coordinated team-based care for patients with DM: “Diabetes Days” apply a “batching” scheduling strategy for patient with DM, improving patient access to care and improving practice efficiency and effectiveness. Logistics: –Allows for scheduling preventative care during regular and advanced access appointments –Type 2 diabetes “batching” on specific days weekly Labs pre-appointment No long appointments scheduled on “batching” days Strong emphasis on patient’s role as team member Team: –Effective for small or larger teams –MD and team agree on roles –Standardized/consistent team roles and documentation –Exam rooms for each team member and MD moves between rooms –Use of flow sheet or EMR for quick assessment of patient status, outcome tracking and as a teaching tool “Diabetes Days” Batching For more information see the Diabetes Practice Guide
55 STEP 3: ORGANIZATION OF PATIENT CARE Expanded medical appointment delivering most elements of an individual visit, including –Personal examinations (e.g. collection of vital signs, history-taking, physical exam) –Formal and informal education –Social and psychological support Practice effectiveness and efficiency which… – Increases capacity to care for more chronically ill patients in less time – Increases efficiency as a result of staff working in appropriate roles and assuming appropriate responsibilities –Improves job satisfaction among staff –Improves delivery of quality patient care Patient Self- mgmt Group Patient Visits (GPV) For more information see the Diabetes Practice Guide
56 STEP 3: ORGANIZATION OF PATIENT CARE RN Role: Focuses on time-consuming diabetes management appointments MD has dual role: Urgent care needs and typical family practice visits Joins the nurse’s visit (if required) to review the plan and sign prescriptions Coordinated Schedule Example Coordinated Team Scheduling For more information see the Diabetes Practice Guide
57 STEP 3: ORGANIZATION OF PATIENT CARE Sample Visit Activities: Detailed interdisciplinary patient visits checklists/plans are provided in the practice guide for the 5 DM patient groups as follows: Prediabetes New Diagnosis Ongoing Management Insulin Starts Complex DM Patients Checklists are aligned to the CDA Clinical Guideline Surveillance Schedule Interdisciplinary Patient Visits: “Right clinician” at the “Right Time” For more information see the Diabetes Practice Guide
