Partnership for Patients: Reducing Readmissions and Hospital Acquired Conditions Dennis Wagner & Paul McGann, MD Co-Directors, Partnership for Patients US Department of Health & Human Services and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services AHRQ Annual Conference September 10, 2012
Questions to Run On Why is the Partnership for Patients Different and How will it Make a Difference? How can you benefit from the Partnership? What actions and contributions might you, your organization, AHRQ’s network make? What are your insights and advice about how CMS and AHRQ can be most helpful in achieving these bold aims? …we want your answers too 2
Breakthrough Aims of the Partnership for Patients 40% Reduction in Preventable Hospital Acquired Conditions – 1.8 Million Fewer Injuries – 60,000 Lives Saved 20% Reduction in 30-Day Readmissions – 1.6 Million Patients Recover Without Readmission Up to $35 Billion Dollars Saved
3 Partnership for Patients Engines to Generate Better Health & Better Care at Lower Cost 1.CMS Innovation Center Investments, up to $1 billion – Technical Assistance to Hospitals (Hospital Engagement Networks) – Community Based Care Transitions Program 2.Programs and platforms of the Department of Health & Human Services – AHRQ, CDC, ACL, HRSA, CMS, ONC, OASH, IHS – VA and DoD 3.Programs and platforms of Partners: AMA, ABMS, AFL- CIO, AHA, NAPH, ANA, N4A, many more
If we always do what we’ve always done, we’ll always get what we’ve always got. Partnership for Patients is About All of Us Doing Things Differently We have unprecedented Federal action and coordination. We have an unprecedented CMMI Investment in taking proven practices to scale. We are calling for continued unprecedented action and alignment by CBOs, hospitals, clinicians, private partners and others.

AHA/HRET HEN First Focus Results: Early Elective Delivery (EED) 8
AHA/HRET EED Reduction Initiatives In May 2012, the AHA Board of Trustees approved the position of supporting policies to eliminate early-term non medically necessary deliveries. Physician engagement Patient education March of Dimes toolkit implementation Implementation of hard stop policies. Hospitals submitted Early Elective Delivery baseline and monitoring data to the HRET Comprehensive Data System. 9
AHA/HRET Reducing EED: State Activities Oklahoma Partnered with the Oklahoma State Department of Health-Maternal Services, University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center Office of Perinatal Quality Improvement, Oklahoma March of Dimes, and the Oklahoma Health Care Authority to implement an approach to institute scheduling process changes in birthing hospitals for scheduled cesareans and inductions, asking OB providers to distribute March of Dimes patient education materials and broadcasting a public service announcement on the risks of scheduling a baby’s birth before 39 weeks gestation. Florida Worked with the Florida Perinatal Quality Collaborative (FPQC) and the Lawton and Rhea Chiles Center for Healthy Mothers and Babies at the University of South Florida. Hosted an EED kick-off webinar in July that provided the MoD toolkit, tips for engaging a hospital team, and resources available from the FPQC and FHA. FHA is promoting data submission to the HRET CDS, one-on-one coaching with OB hospitals, and development of OB/EED grand rounds. Louisiana LHA partnered with the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals (LDHH) in a comprehensive birth outcomes initiative. Every birthing hospital, in 2011, pledged to adopt a comprehensive 39-week gestation delivery prohibition policy by the end of 2012. Partnered with the IHI Perinatal Collaborative efforts in which 22 hospital are enrolled and actively participating in the second phase of the collaborative. 10
The Community-Based Care Transitions Program (CCTP, ACA Section 3026) GOALS: Improve transitions of beneficiaries from the inpatient hospital setting to home or other care settings Improve quality of care Reduce readmissions for high risk beneficiaries Document measureable savings to the Medicare program For more information, visit: http://innovations.cms.gov/initiatives/Partnership-for-Patients/CCTP http://innovations.cms.gov/initiatives/Partnership-for-Patients/CCTP

Readmissions Reduction Keys to Success Build on and spread success within and across networks, including CCTP, QIO, HEN, private efforts, and so on Hospitals team with the larger community Work closely with QIOs and align with state/local efforts Target patient-level interventions to highest risk patients Conduct a thorough Root Cause Analysis (RCA) to determine major readmissions drivers, not just top diagnoses Make greater patient engagement and enhanced role of family caregivers a core focus Choose your interventions based RCA findings Target High-Risk but Measure All-Cause Readmissions
Federal Partners and Programs Are Aligned & Generating Results on Partnership for Patients
AHRQ Alignment and Action on Partnership Aims Led team that established the “Science Base” for PFP and developed national goals for reducing HACs and readmissions. Worked with other agencies to establish methods and national baselines for the measured 2010 rates for HACs and readmissions that will be tracked through 2013. Currently providing healthcare organizations with opportunities to implement proven tools and programs (e.g., CUSP for CLABSI, TeamSTEPPS® in partnership with DoD) and to join new projects (e.g., CUSP for CAUTI, for Safe Surgery and for Perinatal Safety). A source for no-cost, stand-alone toolkits and guides, Webinars on available resources and implementation research findings, and related patient safety and quality improvement expertise.
AHRQ “CUSP for CLABSI” Project: Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections Reduced in Adult ICUs 40% Reduction (1.91 CLABSIs per 1,000 line-days to 1.13) * CLABSI rate calculated as sum of infections divided by sum of line-days for all reporting ICUs Notes: 1.Data are for six cohorts that started collecting baseline data from May 2008 to April 2009. Q1 varies from May-Jul 2009 to Apr-Jun 2010. Q1 to Q4 covers all six cohorts; Q5 to Q8 covers three to five cohorts. 2.Data are from 44 States, DC and PR; with a total of 1142 participating ICUs. 3.We estimate that 27 percent of hospitals with an adult ICU in the nation are participating in CUSP for CLABSI. See: www.onthecuspstophai.org. www.onthecuspstophai.org 4.The project is led by HRET, Johns Hopkins’ Armstrong Institute, and Michigan’s Keystone Center.
AHRQ-CMS Collaboration on PfP National Results Scorecard AimBaseline2013 Target 40% Reduction in Preventable HACs 145 HACs per 1,000 discharges (2010 est.) 119 HACs per 1,000 discharges 20% Reduction in 30-day Readmissions 14.4 %, based on 32.9 million admissions (2010 est.) 11.5%, based on 32.9 million admissions (or approx. 947,106 readmissions averted, 548,437 of which are Medicare)
26 Adverse Drug Events Measured in the PFP HACs The 1.621M and 34 percent of HACs measured in the PFP 2010 totals are as follows: – – ADE Associated with Digoxin (12,000) – – ADE Associated with Insulin and Hypoglycemic Agents (930,000) – – ADE Associated with IV Heparin (170,000) – – ADE Associated with LMW Heparin and Factor Xa Inhibitor (340,000) – – ADE Associated with Warfarin (170,000) These ADE HACs are 57 percent hypoglycemic agents, 42 percent anticoagulants, and 1 percent Digoxin. – – The most important missing ADE-type is probably opiate-related ADEs. Not counted in the ADE category, but related to ADEs and counted in the “all-other” HACs category: – – Contrast Nephropathy Associated with Catheter Angiography (230,000) – – C. difficile Infection after Inpatient Antibiotics (87,000)
27 Counting the “40% of Preventable (44% of) HACs” Nationwide Goals for 2013
Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) HRSA’s Patient Safety & Clinical Pharmacy Collaborative (PSPC) and CMS’s QIOs partnered to have teams in all 50 states working on preventing medication errors and facilitating care transitions Outreach to small rural hospitals for their participation in PfP, with over 900 CAHs now engaged by the HENs. Providing leadership to the Rural Affinity group with 20 of the HENs participating. Convened representatives of rural hospitals and PfP HENs in a special 2-day working event for the HEN Rural Affinity Group. 28
