9 Questions

10 A Review of DSHAP’s 2013 Webinars
I would now like to briefly review the TA webinars completed by the division for CY 2013. In November of CY 2012, we solicited feedback from Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part B Grantees on the division’s technical assistance webinars by asking grantees to complete the 2013 Technical Assistance Webinar Content Request which included a series of 10 questions. The results from the content request were presented in a webinar for Part B grantees on February 13, 2013 entitled “The 2013 Technical Assistance Webinars Feedback and Part B Program Updates”.

11 Respondents There were a total of 51 respondents who completed the content request; the majority were State HIV/AIDS RW Part B Program Coordinators

12 Number of Years in Position
Interesting to note that the majority of respondents (34%) had been in their position only one year or less

13 Topics of Interest Healthcare Reform in States 28%
2013 Reauthorization 24% National Monitoring Standards 18% Early Intervention Services and working with CDC/ ADAP Eligibility, Enrollment and recertification 6% National HIV AIDS Strategy/ HAB Performance Measures/Quality Management Plans/Insurance continuation through ADAP 4% Maintenance of Efforts/Pharmacy Benefits Management overview and how to work with PBMs 2% One of the key questions grantees were asked to rank a list of topics from most to least important based on their interests. Healthcare Reform, the 2013 Reauthorization of the Ryan White legislation and the National Monitoring Standards were the highest ranked topics. So how did we do as a division?

HAB Expectations Heather Hauck, MSW, LICSW Director Division of State HIV/ AIDS Programs

22 Objectives HAB expectations for a Quality Management Program
Components of a Quality Management Program Grantee Presentation

23 We know that we provide multiple layers of value within HAB and the RW program. Most obviously, we provide funds for service delivery- that basic public health function of assurance of services.

24 Zero New Infections The Ryan White Program funds comprehensive HIV care systems for low-income individuals and families to reduce new HIV infections, to improve health outcomes for PLWH, and to reduce HIV-related health disparities. HAB ensures the maximum effectiveness of the Ryan White Program by assessing the HIV care and service needs of PLWH, shaping HIV policy, assessing models of care and services required, providing target training of the health care workforce, providing leadership on national HIV/AIDS quality measures. HAB facilitates improvements in HIV care through a continuum of quality HIV care for low-income individuals and families to reduce new HIV infections, to improve health outcomes for PLWH from diagnosis to achieve optimal treatment, and to reduce HIV-related health disparities. HAB leadership and staff continually assess the HIV care and service needs of PLWH via grantee/provider monitoring and oversight, client feedback, implementation of special studies and collaborative activities within HHS OPDVIS and other federal agencies. HAB leadership and staff provide expertise regarding HIV policy and consideration for the medically underserved on Federal care and treatment guidelines. In conjunction with Ryan White grantees and providers, HAB assesses models of care and services required for care completion with insight from the implementation of Special Projects of National Significance. Targeted training of the health care workforce through curriculum development, mini-residency experience to promote the adoption of HIV/AIDS care as a chronic illness. Training, dissemination and replication of effective models of care inclusive of medical homes to Ryan White and other clinical providers HAB staff provides leadership on national HIV/AIDS quality measures by the development, alignment among HHS OPDIVS and other federal agencies and adoption of these measures Ryan White clinical providers.

25 Quality Empower stakeholders to deliver high quality HIV care and treatment across the nation. Establish and monitor key HIV quality measures/indicators to assure high-quality care that address all stages of the care continuum and adhere to DHHS standards. Collect, analyze, and utilize data on health outcomes of PLWHA to improve and advance the treatment of care.

26 Quality HAB advances evidence-based, cost effective HIV care and treatment through the provision of training and capacity development grants and cooperative agreements. HAB provides leadership on national HIV/AIDS quality measures, including the development, alignment among HHS OPDIVS and other federal agencies and adoption of these measures by Ryan White clinical providers. HAB promotes clinical quality improvement by HAB staff and grantees through capacity development, monitoring grant activities and implementing special projects and studies.

27 Components of a Quality Management Program

28 Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act
All Ryan White grantees are required to establish clinical quality management programs to: Develop strategies for ensuring that such services are consistent with the guidelines for improvement in the access to and quality of HIV services Improve Assess the extent to which HIV health services are consistent with the most recent Public Health Service guidelines for the treatment of HIV disease and related opportunistic infections; and Evaluate

29 Programmatic Expectations
Funding Opportunity Announcement provides minimum expectations for grantees. Established and implemented a clinical quality management plan; Established processes for ensuring that Primary Medical Care services are provided in accordance with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) treatment guidelines and standards of care; and Incorporated quality-related expectations into Requests for Proposals (RFP) and contracts.

30 Components of a QM Program
Quality Infrastructure Quality Management Plan Performance Measures Quality Improvement Projects

31 Quality Infrastructure
Infrastructure enhances systematic implementation of improvement activities. Infrastructure The infrastructure is the base on which the QM program is built. A solid base insures that the rest of the program can be built and maintained.

32 Quality Infrastructure
Quality Management Committee Leadership Stakeholders Touch on 3 important parts of the infrastructure: the QM committee, leadership and stakeholders.

33 Quality Management Committee
Builds the HIV program’s capacity and capability for quality improvement Involves program leaders and other key staff to cement their personal commitment to quality In a large organization, links the HIV quality program with the organization’s overall quality program The quality management committee leads the HIV program’s quality improvement activities. Its job is to build the program’s capacity and capability for improvement. The committee should include leaders from different areas of your HIV program and their involvement in the committee’s work will help strengthen their personal commitment to quality as well. If your HIV program is part of a larger organization, you will want to coordinate your quality improvement work with that of your organization as a whole. The quality management committee helps to do this.

34 Who might be on the committee?
For a Teaching Hospital (HIV case load: 700) Chief of Infectious Diseases AIDS Center Administrator Director of Ambulatory Care Director of Quality Improvement Director of Nursing AIDS Center Nurse Practitioner Clinic Coordinator for Case Management Senior Staff Nurse Patient Representative Part D Provider For a Community Health Center (HIV caseload: 100) Medical Director HIV Nurse Case Manager For a Network (State jurisdiction) (HIV case load: 20,000) Ryan White Program Coordinator State AIDS Director Quality Manager/Contractor Medicaid CDC Prevention Part C or Part D contractor Subcontractors (Case Manager, housing, food bank, etc.) Here are examples of what a QM committee may look like. These include the examples of a teaching hospital and a health center to illustrate how a State with small numbers of cases may think about structuring a QM committee.

35 Leadership Clearly articulated mission and vision statement
Ongoing measurement of performance Ongoing assessment by leaders Active coaching by leaders Organizations with strong capabilities in data and measurement have clearly articulated mission and vision statements with ongoing measurement of performance that links to the mission and the vision. They have ongoing assessment by leaders of quantitative performance measures and a clear method for leaders to use to prioritize and select processes on which to focus and improve. It’s also imperative to have active coaching by leaders of performance improvement teams.

36 Stakeholders How will staff, providers, consumers and others be involved in the CQM program? Engage internal and external stakeholders Communicate information about quality improvement activities Provide opportunities for learning about quality A strong QM program involves stakeholders. Stakeholders have different perspectives on improving HIV programs and care. Clinicians focus on technical aspects of quality HIV care, whereas consumers focus is on experience of receiving care. Involvement of all stakeholders builds a strong system of care.

37 Quality Management Plan
A quality management plan is a written document that outlines the grantee-wide HIV quality program, including a clear indication of responsibilities and accountability, performance measurement strategies and goals, and elaboration of processes for ongoing evaluation and assessment of the program. Updated quality management plans are going to be requested from all Part B grantees in FY14 The quality management plan is the written document describing how the quality management program works, what gets done, who does it and how. These are all spelled out, in writing, in the quality management plan.

38 Quality Management Plan of a Quality Management Plan
Quality statement Quality infrastructure Performance measurement Annual quality goals Engagement of stakeholders Evaluation The quality management plan should contain the six elements listed here. Keep in mind that the QM Plan should be viewed as a living document that is evaluated and updated on a regular basis. It is not something that is “checked off the list.”

39 The 10 QM Plan Rules Do not reinvent the wheel, use established frameworks to get started ‘Steal Shamelessly, Share Senselessly’ Size does not matter 80% planning, 20% writing (old software programming rule) A few visionary annual goals are better than plenty of useful ones Sample plans are out there. Use the references at the end of this Tutorial to find them, and begin there. As with so many things in quality, make use of what others have done and be willing to share what you’ve accomplished, to help others. It doesn’t matter how long it is. Substance matters more. Think through what you want to do before you start to write. Don’t obsess over the writing, it’s the planning that matters. Use the plan-writing process to push your organization forward.

40 The 10 QM Plan Rules (cont.)
6. Be inclusive, even if it takes longer to get your final QM plan If you have not touched your plan in the last 6 months, bring it to the next quality committee meeting A perfect plan is never written Plans are only as good as their implementation Get started Involve the people who need to be involved. They will make the plan a living document, rather than something that’s just a hoop to be jumped through. Here’s a tip to make sure your plan stays real – if you’re not using it regularly, haul it out and talk about it. It should be a living guide. Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. If it works for your organization, it’s fine. Plans are only as good as their implementation. To use a popular cliché, just do it! All the planning in the world is for not if you do not take action.

41 Performance Measures Importance of Performance Measures:
Separating what you think is happening from what is really happening Establishing a baseline and allowing for periodic monitoring Determining whether changes lead to improvements Comparing performance with others Linking performance data to quality improvement activities Measuring HIV performance data helps us in many ways. We can separate what we think is happening from what is really happening and then establish a baseline and allow for periodic monitoring. From here, we can determine whether changes lead to improvements or not. It is equally important to compare performance across sites, and finally, link performance data to quality improvement activities.

42 HAB Performance Measures
2007: Started developing and releasing measures under the guidance of Dr. Cheever Currently 46 measures spanning clinical care, oral health care, ADAP, case management, and systems Alignment and streamline measure across federal programs Core measures received National Quality Forum endorsement in February 2013 asures.html WHAT DO WE WANT TO ACHIEVE? Emphasize Priorities- across the HIV Care Continuum Alignment with Other Federal Stakeholders- Parsimony

43 Quality Improvement Projects
Imbalance Balance Many grantees are measuring data but are lacking the next part of the QM program, the quality improvement part. Performance measurement alone is not quality improvement. However, to do quality improvement, you need performance measurement.

44 Quality Improvement Projects
PDSA Cycle There are different methods for developing quality improvement projects. One of the most commonly used is the Plan-Do-Study-Act cycle. The PDSA cycle is an effective model for developing short term quality improvement initiatives. The NQC website has a tutorial on the PDSA cycle.

45 Quality Management Program
QM Program evaluation tool Developed to help project officers and consultants to better evaluate QM Programs during site visits Identify if a program is meeting legislative requirements Identify areas in which a program has established “best practices” Identify areas where a program needs to improve in order to provide a high quality system of care Updated QM plans are going to be requested from all Part B grantees within the next year.
