Cross ‐ fertilizing Our Team’s Knowledge and Ability to Improve Quality through the PPRNet Model A PPRNet Powered Patient-Centered Family Medicine Home Tim Tobolic MD Byron Center Family Medicine Auigust 22, 2014
PPRNET History Solo > Small group (5 FP, 30+ staff) > paper chart 1999 New EMR designed Office > PPART c PPRNET 4/2009 “Sold out” - “captured” - “sold again”. Raised in captivity - “Epic” diet Secretly making plans to escape
“It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory.”...W. Edwards Deming
PPRNET History 9/2010 “Escaped” captivity > solo > paper chart 12/2010 Chose PPART because of PPRNET 2012 PCMH Designation
PPRNet Early days Champion in our office manager - embraced PPRNet Model. Participation agreed on by Drs, but lackluster participation PPRNET Quality Improvement Team, Project leaders. Office projects focused on HTN, DM, Aspirin, Mammograms Invited PH - a mistake since they stole Office Manager but better for her. Newsletter, QI and Patient satisfaction info for large group. Steve Proposal for “distribution of wealth” (Steve = Obama visionary)
Fertilizing BCFM with PPRNet - TRIP Model Prioritize Performance Involve All Staff Delivery System Redesign Patient Activation Population-based Medicine EMR Tools
Byron Center Family Medicine Strategic Plan MISSION To provide a innovative patient centered family medicine home that exceeds patient expectations and improves the quality of life of our patients and the community. Strategic Plan Incorporates PPRNet model and strategies
Health Maintenance In “Cross Fertilzing” Terms - HM = the ultimate fertilizer spreader. PPRNet gave meaning to Health Maintenance “Get the Red Out” “Need to look at date” Constant updating, tweaking, rule making. Helps with Independent / Team thinking. Chronic Disease (Cross Ferilization) relationships are better understood! 11 months is the new 12 5 months is the new 6 Patient POC Staff Educate patients on the what and why of HM needs in real time.
EMR / HM Tools Multiple simple embedded QT to help push and pull information and identify needed HM PPRNet Site visits & Best Practices Push Result it to HM Here for acute problem, check on HM needed >
EMR Tools Multiple simple QT reminders embedded in Progress Note, PC-Refill, PC-Problem, Lab Result Templates Calling for Refill Open related Lab HM, OV, Lab Needed? Get it done ! “Hi Mr Jones, Rx called in, only gave 30 day supply until you get Bp and A1c checked.”
We should work on our process, not the outcome of our processes....W. Edwards Deming TRIP - PROJECTS
C-TRIP Colorectal Screening Our First experience with TRIP Project Multifaceted - PPRNet TRIP Model Focus on Preventive Screening Staff Involved Engaging patients Meaningful use of PPART Practical use of HM, Dot Codes Cross Fertilize team ability and knowledge -put us ahead of the curve on quality incentives for payors
C-TRIP Colorectal Screening Results of project Power of the Chart
Bring in ALL medications to each visit. Keep medication in original labeled bottle Dispose of outdated, not used meds. Bring All meds to consultants, hospitals, ER, UC MS-TRIP Medication Safety
MS-TRIP Medication Safe Sack Project
CKD-TRIP Chronic Kidney Disease Evaluation group Knowledge base and knowledge need - higher Understand CKD relationships to medication Understand CKD relationship to other chronic disease, labs - HTN, Lipids, CBC, GFR, ACE/ARB, NSAIDS “CKD Tool” - complicated but so far very helpful - (thanks Cara Litvin) Higher level of patient ed. - NKDEP information One of our payors just introduced CKD as a quality measure - fertilizer is working !
COLORECTAL MEDICATION SAFETY CKD Requests for Project Support AAFP TOBACCO AAFP IMMUNIZATION STAY INVOLVED YES DEMANDING BUT NEVER LET UP CROSS FERTILIZE EDUCATION We don’t have time to do it all The Professors from MUSC PPRNet TRIP Projects
PPRNet TRIP Projects Benefits Focus on important Quality Initiatives - Preventive care & Chronic disease management. Staff - Not researchers or statisticians but better idea about research, process. evidence-based care. Skills transferable (cross-fertilize) other projects and office processes PPRNET Projects cross fertilizes many PCMH domains and many payor quality initiatives + incentives Staff better understand the multiple links between chronic diseases -eg: Working on DM “cross-fertilizes quality improvement in HTN, CV disease, Immunizations, Lipids.
PPRNet TRIP Projects Benefits Staff develop desire and refine their ability to provide care that improves quality of life for our patients
PPRNet in Community
It is not enough to do your best; you must know what to do, and then do your best....W. Edwards Deming KNOWLEDGE
TRIP Projects = Value Involvement Investment in PPRNET projects Site Visits Individual and Team project focused training HM tools - enhancements PPRNet Webinars “Best Practices” discussed
PPRNET Meetings = Value Involvement in PPRNET Meetings Educational Networking with “experts” Carry back (“fertilize”) other team members HM tools - enhancements Realize they are not alone !
Cross Fertilizing = Cross Training “Quality is everyone's responsibility.”....W. Edwards Deming
OLD Staff = MA + Front Desk + Billing + Chart people + Office Mgr. Greet Patient Bp, Ht, Wt. - occasionally Put patient in room Call in Refills Answered Problem Calls Give Labs to Doctor Made Next Appointment Arranged Referrals Billed
OLD Office Visit Pre-PPRNet “Why are you here” - “Let me put you in a room and doctor will go over everything.” “I don’t know, you’ll have to ask the doctor” “The Doctor will tell you what you need.” “You better talk to the doctor, he will order the colonoscopy if he thinks you need it” Patient: “Who’s that person working at the front desk” “The doctor will be in to tell you why you need those tests”
NEW (PPRNet Powered) Staff = Team Office Visits Greet / Triage BP, Ht, Wt, BMI - every time Review Medications Review Medication Safety Review all meds each visit Recommend meds - eg. Aspirin Use Better Knowledge of drugs & interactions. Health Maintenance Understand / Explain /Discuss needed HM Better Understanding HM time tables Patient Education Prevention / Chronic Disease Guidelines
Standing Orders Order needed labs Order and Do Immunization Order preventive: Colorectal screen / Pap / Mammogram POC Testing - A1c, Spirometry System Redesign Order Previsit labs Reminder calls (Human vs Electronic) Follow up No Shows Cross Trained Phone Calls Now More Comprehensive Order needed screening Lab Result Discussion and follow up ordered EMR Deal with Interface Order Entry Data Entry, Tracking Previsit Planning Labs, Paperwork TCV Visit WebView (anticipated) NEW (PPRNet Powered) Staff = Team
New (PPRNet Powered) Office Visit When I walk into exam room “Yes I know I need a colonoscopy, Mary already ordered it.” “Jackie already took my urine to check my kidneys” “They wouldn’t give me any more medication till I came in to get my blood pressure (or my A1c, or my lipids, etc) checked.” “Nikki caught me and told me I need to be back here in October for my labs and she scheduled a diabetic eye exam and a colonoscopy“ “I know, I was already told I need to bring in all my medications at the next visit.” “I almost forgot my visit till Shannon called to remind me.” “I’ll just talk to Shannon - “When I Check out” - “When I call in next time” - “If I Need anything” “Don’t worry Doc, They will let me know when I need ” New Office Visit - a different level of patient understanding, empowerment, expectations, complexity and time.
Staff (on PPRNet) has Evolved Intense Involved Aggressive Empowered Persistent Comprehensive LOOK AT THE BIG PICTURE! Confident and Convincing. Knowledgable More Accurate! Better Communicators Caring Patient Experience PPRNET and PCMH savy Better “Team” Culture Better at creative thinking Better and more comfortable patient educators Better at getting needed data. Attitude of Excellence Show Passion for what they do
REWARD “Show Me the Money!” “Defects are not free. Somebody makes them, and gets paid for making them.”...W. Edwards Deming
PPRNet = PCMH = P4P PPRNet Model made PCMH process easier PPRNet Background reduced learning curve
Share the Wealth Ornstein Effect Staff play significant role in meeting quality guidelines. PPRNET education has been significant part of that. I could never do it alone. Team Knowledge + Patient Activation + Quality Improvement = Enhanced Incentive Payments with several payors. Staff should share in those enhanced payments Approx 15-20% of income in 2013 estimated to be incentives. PPRNet “Best Practice” is worth something!
WEP Wage Enhancement Program OLD METHOD Come to work, put individual patient in room, answer physician messages, do refills, go home, get paid. “Bonus” based on personal characteristics and individual performance. NEW METHOD Value in independent thinkers who are team players, innovation, understanding of data, registries, quality parameters, patient education, recommended prevention & community based care. “Wage” based on outcome, team activity, quality incentives.
Employee Incentive Review Review Work in PCMH and PPRNet environment Educational - review PCMH & PPRNet elements Review accomplishments & set goals Team based & Individual
Priority Health Example of Cross Fertilizing Incentives - Motivations One of larger payors Incentives Disease Management Preventive Health Infrastructure Info Shared with staff Received Quality Award
PPRNet = Why It Works Goals - clarify, focus, prioritize Intensity Continue to improve Skill Continue to Improve the Processes Consistency in process Every Encounter, Every Time = Opportunity Teamwork - Challenging / Rewarding Develop a better understanding of the knowledge we gain Yes its hard, time-consuming, but rewarding
“The job can't be finished only improved to please the customer.”...W. Edwards Deming
