1 Institute of Medicine: Linking EHRs to Public Health Departments Michael Buck, PhD Director of Biomedical Informatics April 8, 2014

2 Actionable Information in NYC: Primary Care Information Project (PCIP) Mission Improve quality of care in medically underserved areas through health information technology “Clinical Action Arm” bureau of the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Promote new models of care focusing on prevention and public health priorities Develop new tools in population health management Transition providers from paper charts to an EHR Success Over 12,000 providers joined PCIP and the Regional Extension Center (NYC REACH), including more than: 1095 independent practices 63 community health centers 54 hospitals & outpatient clinics Millions of patients 2

3 Data We receive eClinicalWorks EHR data on 3000 providers, caring for ~1.8 M patients per year, ~350,000 encounters per month, data on 5M+ patients since 2009 Using Medicaid claims data – to analyze and create dashboards to reach non- eClinicalWorks providers Commercial claims data Information We turn raw data into usable, targeted, actionable information and use it to drive public health focused interventions Action Dashboards: over 20,000 sent last year On-site QI: over 4,000 site visits last year PCMH: PCIP sites are 439 out of 1051 total sites in NYS (42%) Pay for Quality Programs: Health eHearts, Health eQuits Community Engagement activities Data -> Information -> Action 3

4 Infrastructure to Retrieve EHR Data: The Hub Population Health Network 4 “The Hub” allows secure exchange of aggregate data with PCIP practices on the eClinicalWorks EHR  Send out queries  Receive patient counts overnight The Hub currently covers: 700+ practices ~1.8 M patients per year 5 M+ patients since 2009 Buck MD, Anane S, Taverna J, Amirfar S, Stubbs-Dame R, Singer J.

10 Proposal: Develop and validate best practices for using data from EHRs for population health surveillance. In partnership with CUNY School of Public Health, the NYC Health Department will create EHR-based estimates and compare them to a “gold standard” 2013 local HANES survey. We will select high performing measures as the basis of the NYC Macroscope EHR surveillance system. 10 The NYC Macroscope Project

11 Gold Standard: NYC HANES 2013 Partnership with CUNY SPH Representative sample of 1,500 randomly selected New Yorker adults — Household-based sampling — Citywide estimation Detailed health interviews (CAPI, ACASI) Brief physical exam Biological specimen collection (blood, urine) Mental health screening 11

12 EHR Limitations: Bias and Measurement Error 12

13 National ONC Standard: Query Health Completed federal initiative to build distributed query capabilities across healthcare IT vendors. New York City/State Depts. of Health completed one of the first pilots of this new national standard across HIE and EHR data sources. 13
