5 1.The historical view: The beginning, the middle and the end, and where we are going next Juergen Fritsch

6 Clinical Documentation Challenge Tedious manual process, Time-consuming, Documentation lacks expressiveness of natural language Transcription can be expensive Subject to longer turn-around times Clinical data lost, because documents are neither structured nor encoded. Direct Data Entry: Structured and encoded information. Dictation: Fast and easy, expressive.

7 JAMA 2012; 307 (23):

8 Health Story - Vision Comprehensive Electronic Records that Tell a Patient’s Complete Health Story 1.2B narrative clinical documents produced by US healthcare system annually Constitutes 60% of all clinical data Narrative documents underutilized in today’s EHR systems

9 Health Story - Beginnings Health Story started in 2006 as an alliance of healthcare vendors, providers and associations Pooled resources in a rapid development initiative Produced Health Level 7 (HL7) data standards for the flow of information between common types of healthcare documents, and EHR systems Building on HL7 CDA standard CDA for Common Document Types (CDA4CDT)

10 Health Story - Continued Joining forces with Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise USA (IHE) and The Office of the National Coordinator’s Standards and Interoperability Framework Harmonized work across organizations to produce Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture standard (C-CDA) Now included in Meaningful Use Stage 2

11 Meaningful Clinical Documents Meaningful Clinical Documents are a blend between free form text and fully structured documentation, that allow to –represent the thought process, and –capture the clinical facts

12 Consolidated CDA CCD Consultation Note Diagnostic Imaging Report Discharge Summary H&P Operative Note Procedure Note Progress Note Unstructured Document

13 Health Story – New Umbrella HIMSS takes on management of Health Story project in January 2013 Providing global leadership and greater exposure among healthcare IT community Any HIMSS member can opt-in at no charge Sponsors can continue to promote and expand the project

14 Health Story - Constituency Spanning Clinical Documentation Lifecycle: Electronic Information Capture Dictation/Transcription/Voice Recognition Natural Language Processing Computer Assisted Coding (CAC) Narrative Data Mining & Analytics Document Management

15 Health Story – Mission Moving Forward Establish a strong and effective coalition of members and partners Maintain relevance & adoption in nationally- recognized standards bodies Raise awareness and foster adoption of the Health Story approach to improve information exchange in three areas: Coordinated patient care Payer-provided integration Population health

16 2.The key components of a standard presentation, the key messages Liora Alschuler

17 Key Points Problem Statement The migration from paper to electronic records has to work for everyone Today, clearly not the case Response Standards that integrate narrative, coded elements Align policy with standards, technology

18 “It was so much easier when I could just say what I wanted.” John Spinosa, MD, quoting a colleague Interoperability for Everyone

19 Challenge “I have never seen…a checkbox for apprehension…” “The medical record is not data. It contains data… but it is not data, nor is it simply a repository into which data are poured.” And who does it serve? Clinician & patient or… “... a small army of people who “need” to know what happened in the examination room or at the bedside…” JAMA, Internal Medicine, published online, May 27, 2013

20 Challenge JAMIA, published online, January 12, 2011 Structured data capture can be at odds with the expressivity, workflow, and usability factors preferred by clinicians. Authors recommend choice in data capture and text processing modalities.

21 Key Points: Response We can create an electronic record that ensures value for –Care delivery –Evidence-based medicine –And which endures over time, as technology evolves Vision –Comprehensive electronic records that –Tell a patient’s complete health story.

22 How? Use simple, stable, established formats for information exchange. Mix data and narrative. Go Big This will be: –Less disruptive –More useful

23 Investing in Information CDA can be simple CDA can be complex Simple encoding relatively inexpensive, complex encoding costs more Gall's Law is a rule of thumb from John Gall's Systemantics: How Systems Really Work and How They Fail: –A–A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that worked. –T–The inverse proposition also appears to be true: A complex system designed from scratch never works and cannot be made to work. You have to start over, beginning with a working simple system.

24 CDA Basics A Header + Body CDA Header: metadata CDA Body narrative (free-text) form required and coded (computable) form optional

25 Incremental Approach Narrative Text HL7 CDA Structured Documents Coded Discrete Data Elements Decision Support Meaningful Use! Clinical Applications SNOMED CT Disease, DF Metabolic Disease, D Disorder of glucose metabolism, D Diabetes Mellitus, DB Type 1, DB Insulin dependant type IA, DB Neonatal, DB75110 Carpenter Syndrome, DB Disorder of carbohydrate metabolism, D Quality Reporting 1.Get the data flowing, get the data flowing, get the data flowing. 2.Incrementally add structure, where cost effective to do so.

26 We are looking for a shift in policy Lower the threshold for information exchange so that –all may participate –approach 100% of the records for 100% of patients Incentivize participation at all levels of interoperability Recognize diversity of applications Respect the clinical voice Provide value back to those who incur the costs

27 A health record is the patient’s “health story” The primary purpose of the record is to support care delivery Electronic records must produce a longitudinal record of lasting value: expressive, data conversion-proof Clinical records must be complete, well organized, easy to navigate, concise, logical, adaptable to the needs of the user, sharable, and secure. Electronic records and new technologies –support shared decision-making, –document use of practice guidelines, and –support evidence-based practice. Value Statement

28 Here is how to vary the value statement by audience…

36 4.The basic elements of a Health Story Project elevator pitch Nick Mahurin

37 Goal Create a hook so they want to follow up to learn more.

38 View from Space Risk: Don’t try to accomplish too much. Two pillars: Concept Relevance

39 Concept Started by an industry consortium dedicated to preserving narrative (as the EMR era took hold with it’s emphasis on structured data) by developing templates for common medical report types using a healthcare specific implementation of XML called CDA.

40 Relevance In addition to creating these templates under an associated charter agreement with HL7, the Department of HHS included Consolidated CDA in Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements for EMRs. The powerful implication is that, arguably for the first time ever, we have a common electronic record that all EMRs are required to be able to send and receive. This is a monumental achievement in health information and will support providers sharing information as well as service providers.

41 Vary by Audience Even more essential in a shorter presentation. Examples: XML – Only for IT people you expect already understand the Health Story Project Narrative/ Structured – Need to be spelled out for some audiences.
