Objectives for First STEPS, LS 1 Setting the Stage: Why we are focusing on Immunizations, the PCMH, and Bright Futures Reviewing the Model for Improvement Teamwork: Conducting a Gap Analysis, Crafting an Aim Statement, and Developing PDSA cycles Next Steps: Moving Forward over the Next 8 months
Learning Session Ground Rules Be respectful - always Limit side conversations Keep phone conversations out of meeting room Respect confidentiality of conversations Encourage everyone to contribute Respect all opinions Keep patient records confidential (breakout room available in the Carriage House for confidential computer work or taking calls)

What is the Quality Gap? The gap between the care we know is best and our ability to deliver it, every time, to every patient in the way they need it. Maine is 41 st in the nation in immunization rates (Commonwealth Fund, 2010) We need to move from thinking about each patient we immunized in our office last week to managing our entire population of patients
Why Is this Important to Your Practice? Meaningful Use Requirements Universal Childhood Immunization Program–January 2012 Pathways to Excellence Prevent Illness, Save Lives!
Immunizations Save Lives and Money Immunizations are the most cost-effective health prevention activity for children, $1 spent= $6.30 direct medical cost savings and $18.40 of indirect cost savings 95% decline in most vaccine-preventable childhood diseases in 20 th century Currently only 18% of children in the United States receive all vaccinations at the recommended times (Maine Primary Care Association. “LD 1408: An Act to Establish the Universal Childhood Immunization Program – a Winning Combination for patients, providers and health plans in Maine,” 2010., Briss, P., Rodewald, L., Hinman, A., Shefer, A., Strikas, R., Bernier, R.,…Williams, S. “Reviews of Evidence Regarding Interventions to Improve Vaccination Coverage in Children, Adolescents and Adults.” American Journal of Preventive Medicine, 2000, 18(IS), 97-100.

Moving from Specific QI Initiatives to Changing Systems IHI Model for Improvement Lean Six Sigma Dartmouth Clinical Microsystems PCMH (Making Health Care Work: A Microsystems Approach, Nelson, 2006)
Systems are perfectly designed to get the results they achieve” -Paul Batalden “Systems are perfectly designed to get the results they achieve” -Paul Batalden
Current “Systems” Atlanta’s infamous ‘Spaghetti Junction’
What We Have Learned So Far: Measurement is Complicated Data Collection is even more Complicated Practices have a lot of turnover in the summer months Collaboration is a challenge when trying to connect groups across health care systems and independent sites When we work together, we can identify problems and solutions much faster
How Today’s Topics Fit Together Bright Futures PCMH as the Foundation Immunization QI
4 Questions When we meet 8 months from now to discuss immunization rates, what needs to happen in that time period for you to consider this pilot a success? What are the barriers that you have to face and work around to achieve progress? What are the biggest opportunities that you need to focus on and capture to achieve success?
4 Questions What strengths will you need to reinforce and maximize and what skills and resources will you need to develop that you don’t currently have to capture these opportunities?
