1 Understanding Meaningful Use Presented by: Allison Bryan MS, CHES December 7, 2012 Purdue Research Foundation 2012 Review of Stage 1 and Stage 2

2 Meaningful Use Financial incentives for the “meaningful use” of certified EHR technology to improve patient care Providers have to meet thresholds for certain objectives – Required core objectives – Choice of menu objectives Meaningful use must be demonstrated for all patients, not just Medicare or Medicaid subscribers Purdue Research Foundation 2012

3 Stage 1 Capture Information Stage 2 Report and Exchange Information Stage 3 and Beyond… Leverage Information for Improved Patient Care Meaningful Use Stages Purdue Research Foundation 2012

6 Improving quality, safety, efficiency and reducing health disparities (cont.) Maintain active medication allergy list80%+ of patients Record and chart changes in selected vital signs (height, weight, BP, BMI, growth charts (2-20 yrs.) 50%+ of patients Record smoking status for patients 13 years old or older 50%+ of patients Implement one clinical decision support rule along with the ability to track compliance that rule 1 rule Report ambulatory quality measures to CMS or the States Aggregate numerator/ denominator Policy PriorityStage 1 ObjectivesMeasure Purdue Research Foundation 2012

7 Engage patients and families in their healthcare Provide patients with an electronic copy of their health information (including diagnostic test results, problem list, medication lists, and medication allergies) upon request, within 3 days of request 50%+ of all patients who request Provide clinical summaries to patients for each office visit within 3 days of visit 50%+ of all office visits Improve Care Coordination Capability to exchange key clinical information (for example problem list, medication lists, medication allergies, diagnostic test results) among providers of care and patient authorized entities electronically 1 test of capability Ensure adequate security and privacy provisions for personal health information Protect electronic health information created or maintained by certified EHR technology through the implementation of appropriate technical capabilities. Conduct or review a security risk analysis Policy PriorityStage 1 ObjectivesMeasure Purdue Research Foundation 2012

8 Security Providers fined $100,00 for Internet privacy violations o 2 physician cardiology practice  The physician practice was posting clinical and surgical appointments for its patients on an Internet-based calendar that was publicly accessible  OCR findings :  Few policies and procedures to comply with the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules  Limited safeguards in place to protect ePHI  Outcome:  $100,000 penalty  Required to adopt a Corrective Action Plan Purdue Research Foundation 2012

9 Security Massachusetts provider settles HIPAA case for $1.5 million o 300 Physician Eye and Ear Institute  Result of a theft of an unencrypted personal laptop containing ePHI of patients and research subjects  OCR findings:  No thorough analysis of the risk to the confidentiality of ePHI maintained on portable devices  Did not Implement security measures sufficient to ensure the confidentiality of ePHI  Did not implement policies and procedures to restrict access to ePHI to authorized users of portable devices  Outcome:  $1.5 million penalty  Required to adopt a Corrective Action Plan Purdue Research Foundation 2012

10 Menu Set Policy Priority Stage 1 ObjectivesMeasure Improving quality, safety, efficiency and reducing health disparities Implement drug formulary checks Functionality enabled Incorporate clinical lab test results into certified EHR technology as structured data 40%+ of all clinical lab tests ordered Generate lists of patients by specific conditions to use for quality improvement, reduction of disparities, research or outreach At least 1 report of patients with condition Send reminders to patients 65 years or older of 5 years or younger per patient preference for preventive/ follow up care 20%+ of patients Purdue Research Foundation 2012

11 Policy Priority Stage 1 ObjectivesMeasure Engage patients and families in their healthcare Improve Care Coordination Provide patients with timely electronic access to their health information (including lab results, problem list, medication lists, medication allergies) within four business days of the information being available to the EP 10%+ of patients Use certified EHR technology to identify patient- specific education resources and provide those resources to the patient if appropriate 10%+ of patients Purdue Research Foundation 2012

12 Improve care coordination Perform Medication Reconciliation when the EP or eligible hospital receives a patient from another setting of care or provider of care 50%+ of care transitions to EP Provide summary of care record for each transition of a patient to another setting of care or provider of care or referral to another provider of care 50%+ of care transitions from EP Improve population health Capability to submit electronic data to immunization registries or Immunization Information Systems and actual submission in accordance with applicable law and practice At least 1 test Capability to submit electronic syndromic surveillance data to public health agencies and actual submission in accordance with applicable law and practice At least 1 test Policy Priority Stage 1 ObjectivesMeasure Purdue Research Foundation 2012

13 Progress to Date Incentives according to CMS: – More than 110,000 Eligible Professionals have received incentive payments from the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs – From May 2011 to July 31, 2012, more than $3.6 billion in Medicare payments – From January 2011 to August 31, 2012, more than $3.3 billion in Medicaid payments Release of Stage 2 Meaningful Use – Begins 2014 Purdue Research Foundation 2012

14 Meaningful Use: Stage 2 Secure Messaging (Core) – Use secure electronic messaging to communicate with patients on relevant health information – Threshold: greater than 5% – 2 exclusions apply Timely Online Access: View, Transmit or Download (Core) – 2 portions, must achieve both for Meaningful Use – Timely Online Access Measure: Provide patients the ability to view online, download, and transmit their health information within 4 business days of the information being available to the EP or 36 hours after discharge from an inpatient or emergency department of an EH or CAH Threshold: greater than 50% – View Transmit or Download Measure: Number of unique patients seen by the EP during the reporting period (or authorized representative), who view, download, or transmit health information. Threshold: greater than 5% – 1 exclusion applies to each portion Purdue Research Foundation 2012

15 Meaningful Use: Stage 2 Imaging Results (Menu) – Imaging results consisting of the image itself and any explanation or other accompanying information are accessible through CEHRT. – Threshold: The resulting percentage must be more than 10 percent in order to meet this measure. – 2 exclusions apply Family History (Menu) – More than 20% of all unique patients seen by the EP during the EHR reporting periods have a structured data entry for one or more first-degree relatives – 1 exclusion applies Purdue Research Foundation 2012

16 Meaningful Use: Stage 2 Cancer Registry (Menu) – Successful ongoing submission of cancer case information from CEHRT to a public health central cancer registry for the entire EHR reporting period. – No threshold, pass/fail – 4 exclusions apply Specialized Registr y (Menu) – Successful ongoing submission of specific case information from CEHRT to a specialized registry for the entire EHR reporting period – No threshold, pass/fail – 4 exclusions apply Purdue Research Foundation 2012

17 Summary Meaningful Use is here to stay Advanced stages become more challenging Resources are available – Allison Bryan Purdue Research Foundation 2012
