1 Unleashing the Power of Data, IT, and Innovation to Improve Health Todd Park, Chief Technology Officer U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

2 There Has Never Been a Better Time to Be an Innovator at the Intersection of Health Care & IT New Incentives Information Liberation Rocket Fuel for Innovation + =

3 New Incentives, Part 1: Meaningful Use Medicare/Medicaid incentive payments rewarding “meaningful use” of EHRs (not purchase of EHRs alone) Physicians: $44,000/$63,750 Hospitals: $2M plus bonuses for higher Medicare, Medicaid volume Escalating requirements – 2011, 2013, 2015

5 Payment Reforms Will Motivate and Reward Innovation at a Whole New Level Data Mining/Analytics Timely Clinical Data, Decision Support Care Integration Tools Technology to Extend Physician Reach Consumer Engagement Tools/Platforms/Apps Organized outpatient care, coordination and team-based approaches Patient Centered Medical Homes Shared savings; redesigned care processes for high quality, efficient delivery Accountable Care Organizations Pilot program for episodes of care; incentivizes reduced costs around eight conditions Bundled Payments Motivates hospitals to engage with care coordinators and better organize delivery systems Readmission Reduction Programs Innovations Needed:

6 Information Liberation, Part 1: Rising Health Data Liquidity The Direct Project Collaborative project to develop a simple method for enabling secure transmission of health care information over the Internet Launched 3/10, specs posted 6/10, first production transaction 1/11, now being implemented by 65+ vendors Collaborative project to develop a simple method for enabling secure transmission of health care information over the Internet Launched 3/10, specs posted 6/10, first production transaction 1/11, now being implemented by 65+ vendors “Blue Button” The ability for any veteran or Medicare beneficiary to download an electronic copy of their own personal health or claims information Launched 10/10, utilized by over 200,000 unique users thus far The ability for any veteran or Medicare beneficiary to download an electronic copy of their own personal health or claims information Launched 10/10, utilized by over 200,000 unique users thus far
