1. Review UBP Capitol Region Collaborative Priorities 2. Describe two multisector pilot project ideas: Regional stroke signs /symptoms recognition and early response improvement campaign Improve hypertension control using patient-centered technology and team-based approaches in clinical vs. non-clinical settings. 3. Weigh in on collaborative multisector approaches to reduce heart attacks and strokes in the Capitol Region Agenda
Right Care Sacramento University of Best Practices Collaborative Improvement Priorities 1.Education of highest risk patients and their families (for instance for those who have experienced TIA) about stroke signs and symptom recognition, the 3‐4.5 hour time window of TPA, and the importance of calling 911/arriving at hospital via ambulance. 2.Intensification of provider efforts at CVD risk factor mitigation for highest risk patients (proactive outreach by clinical staff to high risk patients; adherence to protocols; medication management by pharmacists, etc.). 3.Intensive effort on improving regional blood pressure control through home blood pressure monitoring.
Title Key Findings Systematic review of mass media interventions designed to improve public recognition of stroke symptoms, emergency response and early treatment (Lecouturier et al., BMC Public Health 2010, 10: 784) Campaigns aimed at the public may raise awareness of signs/symptoms but have limited impact on behavior Little to no change in intent to call EMS if experiencing/witnessing stroke Television but not newspaper improved awareness of stroke signs Stroke Education Interventions Stroke education in clinical settings (Chan et al., Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases 2010, 19(3):, ) Participants receiving stroke education (video, counseling, & printed materials) consistently demonstrated better knowledge than control group Retention gradually declined over follow- up (after 1 & 3 months), but remained high 97% of intervention group shared info with others Intervention did not result in lifestyle behavior changes
Title Key Findings Home Blood Pressure Monitoring: New Evidence for an Expanded Role. PLoS Med 11(1): e (Caulfield, 2014) Electronic blood pressure measurement (home or ambulatory monitoring) improves the precision of HTN diagnosis and is superior to clinic blood pressure monitoring at predicting prognosis among patients with hypertension. Home Blood Pressure Monitoring Stratification by Self-Measured Home Blood Pressure across Categories of Conventional Blood Pressure: A Participant-Level Meta-Analysis PLoS Med 11(1): e (Asayama etal. PLoS Med; 11(1) 2014) Useful for risk stratification
“...the results of studies to date are promising.. and point to technology, infrastructure, access and reimbursement issues that must be addressed for maximal care quality improvement and cost savings. These are multi-faceted issues that will require careful and coordinated evaluation by payors,... government,... care providers,... and employers, as well as an assessment of technology needs. “ Telehomecare and RemoteMonitoring: An Outcomes Overview
Hospitals and Clinics Inpatient Outpatient Community Services Hospice Respite Care Multiple specialists Individual and Caregivers Many Touch Points Multiple Transitions Silos of Information Unclear Accountability Home Care Care Coordination Challenge
A Potential Solution: Technology-Enabled Community Wide Care Coordination RN-led care coordination with community health workers/health coaches RN-led care coordination with community health workers/health coaches Personalized social network built around a patient Personalized social network built around a patient Collaboration with clinicians, care team members, caregivers, and others designated by the individual Collaboration with clinicians, care team members, caregivers, and others designated by the individual Person-centered health and healthcare activities across a relevant community. Person-centered health and healthcare activities across a relevant community. 11
Guiding Principles Technology-Enabled Community Wide Care Coordination Engage participants, caregivers and families as equal partners Evidence-based care protocols to coordinate care among diverse care team members and settings Care experiences and caring relationships enabled through technology Care experiences and caring relationships enabled through technology Measured outcomes Measured outcomes Evidence and cost transparency for shared decision making Evidence and cost transparency for shared decision making
Personal Health Network (PHN): Key Features (Tiatros, Inc) Scalable Adaptable to different chronic conditions Cloud-based HIPAA Compliant Social-network styled software “Carepod” of PHN members designated by the patient Kim, K.K., Bell, J., Reed, S., Joseph, J.G., Bold, R.,Cerrone, K., Altobello, D., Homchowdhury, J. A “Novel Personal Health Network for Patient-Centered Chemotherapy Care Coordination,” in Proceedings International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems, Minneapolis, MN, 2014, pp
Personal Health Network (PHN): Key Features Patient generated data (e.g., BP), assessments and patient- reported outcomes RN Assessments; Evidence-based protocols Shared Care Plan Appointment Reminders Medication Management Referrals Patient Education Secure Messaging; Video Chat
Primary care providers: Integrate technology enabled team-based approaches for patient education, care coordination and self- management support Hospitals/Health systems: Coordinate with outpatient providers to provide information and training to high risk patients recently discharged from the hospital Health plans/payers: To support the real time monitoring of high risk patients through care coordination reimbursement and support FAST community awareness campaigns. Technical Assistance Organizations: Align work with the regional initiative as a primary objective, eg. Lead pilot improvement projects as part of the regional initiative. Governmental Agencies: Facilitate cooperation among local, state, and federal agencies to support the community-wide campaign. Provide instrumental support to the initiative through existing programs. Universities: Monitor and evaluate the impact of the regional initiative on public awareness, self-management of high risk patients, and timely response. Industry Partners: Instrumental and technical support and many ideas! Multisector Collaboration Could Be Key to Effective Implementation of Improvement Strategies
A. Yes, and I can have ideas about how we can contribute B. Yes, but I need to let think about how we can best contribute C. Maybe, I need more details! D. No My organization would be interested in contributing to a regional multisector campaign to improve CVD outcomes:
A. Improving stroke education and response for high risk patients and families B. Improving CVD risks (hypertension etc.) through patient centered technology and care teams C. Both D. I have a different idea and I want to share it E. No opinion/Other Which comes closest to your preferred focus of the regional multisector initiative to improve CVD outcomes?
Partnered Research to Reduce Heart Attacks and Strokes in the Short vs. Long Term We can start small We can start small To ensure that the project will kick off, the UC Right Care Initiative Research team can support pilot data collection and analysis for a multisector collaborative regional project To ensure that the project will kick off, the UC Right Care Initiative Research team can support pilot data collection and analysis for a multisector collaborative regional project To examine the impact of interventions, external funding would be required (eg. Foundations, private organizations, federal funding, etc.) and pilot data collection would be instrumental to apply for funding.
