1 Public sector/stakeholder collaboration - moving beyond “the clenched fist” Strategies for Public Sector Transformation October 16, 2002

2 Agenda  introduction  Physician Office System Program – a case study  challenges & solutions “You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist” - Indira Gandhi

3 Introduction  lessons learned from walking in the other guy’s moccasins  experience is the best teacher or “how I got the scars on my back”  Alberta Wellnet  CYNCH  Western Health Information Collaborative  Alberta “One Window”  Common opportunities  Western Canadian Continuing Care EHR Initiative  Physician Office System Program  the usual disclaimer

4 The Physician Office System Program A case study…

5 Physician Office System Program  joint initiative of the Alberta Medical Association and Alberta Health & Wellness  negotiated under the AMA/AH&W master agreement  a contractual relationship  provides three types of assistance to the physician:  financial assistance to defray the cost of hardware/software  information technology services  change management services  targets improvement in physician office systems, services and business models (e.g., ASP)

6 POSP vision “to establish a physician office information infrastructure that is integrated with the health information system”

7 Electronic health record Physician office system: Electronic medical record Integrated decision support Billing Scheduling Office productivity tools Stand-alone information sources: Labs Pharmacies Radiologists = Interface Regional clinical systems - acute: MPI/ADT Lab Pharmacy ER Radiology Home care Immunization Speech Pathology “ EHR” – a longitudinal record of a patient’s health & healthcare, from cradle to grave… Regional clinical systems – sub- acute and continuing care: Continuing care delivery systems, including case management, care protocols, clinical data and reports Client/patient surveys

10 POSP results to date...  1,212 physician participants to date; target 2,138  standing offers for physician office system vendors developed (1 st in Canada); “2 nd round” of requirements definition underway  physician led; 5 stakeholder groups  national and regional participation  POS to POS interface feasibility study in process  support for electronic reporting of lab results  standing offers for Microsoft and Dell negotiated

11 POSP results to date…  “first of its kind” change management program  web-based tools (POSP Software Lab, electronic “doctors’ lounge”), communication and knowledge products, workshops (computer literacy, decision support, change management, privacy impact assessments…) & on-site consultations  communications strategy and products developed  external evaluation ongoing, first reports issued  operational, change management and groupware IT systems implemented

12 POSP results to date…  cited as the “premier” physician program in Alberta  seen as a successful collaboration by the Program sponsors  proposed for renewal by both sponsors

13  POSP developed “standing offers” with vendors for the delivery of hardware and software that will support achievement of physicians’ program outcomes  standing offers published April, 2002  first time in Canada comprehensive physician office system requirements articulated IT services

14 Learning as we go…  significant learnings through standing offer process  external evaluation conducted and results shared with stakeholders  process was fair  no need to issue another RFP  POSP should develop and maintain standards  independent evaluation agency should evaluate applications against standards

15 Benefits of this approach  consultation with stakeholders will:  ensure requirements carry weight  address vendors’ business issues  result in increased alignment between physicians’ & other stakeholder needs and vendor offerings  allows time for vendors to meet any new requirements  vendors who already meet VCUR can market by reference to these requirements, as soon as requirements published

16 Public sector/stakeholder collaboration Lessons learned…

17 Barriers to successful collaboration  absence of shared vision, commitment  inappropriate governance model  lack of specificity re: outcomes & targets  lack of clarity re: roles & responsibilities  misunderstanding the nature of the relationship  inadequate resourcing of the collaborative effort  positional stereotyping & mistrust  dogmatic adherence to past decisions

18 Strategies that work…  you can’t outsource strategic planning  business owners need to “own” the vision and define/approve key strategies  environmental scan helps clarify the “larger picture”  listen with an “empty teacup”

19 Strategies that work…  give careful thought to your governance structure and respect it once its in place  appropriate to the task  terms of reference  if you’ve delegated authority…don’t meddle! but hold parties accountable with respect to agreed-upon outcomes  consider “orientation” to ensure governance level and operating level are clear on respective roles and responsibilities

20 Strategies that work…  collaboration requires dedicated resources  consider implementing an appropriately resourced program management structure, accountable to the project sponsors  keeping sponsors, stakeholders informed is key

21 Strategies that work…  articulate and communicate expected outcomes, targets…  link to strategies  assign owners to strategies  monitor and report on performance relative to these outcomes  linkage with related initiatives?

22 Outcomes/targets example

23 Linking outcomes to strategies…

24 Strategies that work…  don’t confuse the way you treat people with the nature of the business relationship  partnership?  contractual relationship?  don’t expect a vendor to act like the owner of the initiative…their primary focus is their own bottom line  don’t let suspicion based on different agendas taint the relationship

25 Strategies that work…  do your best not to fall back on stereotypes  encourage a climate of continuous improvement…its okay not to get it perfect the first time!  formal evaluation function or periodic external reviews are just good practice  don’t get trapped “sticking with” decisions that time & circumstances have proven sub-optimal  change what you can on the fly… schedule reviews when more substantive policy changes can be implemented  invite the stakeholders in at the earliest opportunity…doesn’t have to be perfect

26 Getting beyond the clenched fist… The law of “win/win” says “let’s not do it your way or my way…let’s do it the best way” - Greg Anderson The 22 Non-negotiable Ways of Wellness
