1 Kelli Clifton-Graduate Administrative Intern Office of the President/Department of Surgical Services 2010 MHA Candidate-The Ohio State University Summer 2009 Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) Patient Satisfaction: Striving for 5’s Through Patient Communication

2 Agenda Problem Identification and Purpose of Project Selection of Pilot Locations Electronic Discharge Instruction Olson Discharge Process Re-design Organizational Impact of Project

3 Problem For the baseline period of Q3 FY 09, the overall ASC patient satisfaction goal was 75.7% (VG). In comparison, the actual overall ASC patient satisfaction score was 71.4%(VG) ( 4.3%).

4 Purpose of Project Develop a perioperative experience that includes timely, consistent and accurate information for Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) patients and families – Directly supports Best Patient Experience (BPE) strategic plan – Specific focus on patient satisfaction, measured by Press Ganey Survey

5 %VG for Questions Within Scope FY 09 (Q1-Q3) -Goal 75.7% (VG) 67.4% 68.3% 71.5%

6 Goal Benefit: Increase ENT and Orthopaedics scope questions by 50% VG. Overview Electronic Discharge Instructions Deliverables: Discharge Phone Call Tracking Discharge Process Re-design within Olson Scope: 12 week pilot focused within Olson ASC Orthopaedics and ENT specialties.

7 Pilot Locations Specialties with “room” to improve PG scores Identifiable physician champion Specialties with n>30 survey response rate

8 Selection of Physician Champion

9 Orthopaedic Procedures within Scope

10 Deliverable 1: Electronic Discharge Instructions (DI)

11 Risks Illegibility Static Lacks patient education Increase in unplanned re-admissions

12 Options for the Improvement of Discharge Instructions

13

14 Surgeon can complete instructions either prior to or after surgery Nurse prints for review with patient

15 Before After

16 Benefits Comprehensive patient education Promotes medication compliance Customized per surgeon/patient Reduces errors due to illegibility Immediate electronic documentation

17 2 3 Recommendations: Strategically Roll-out Electronic DI Completed during 12 week scope 1 Designate specific “go-live” plan for all pavilions Incorporate IS and clinical staff

18 Recommendations: Strategically Roll-out Electronic DI It is recommended that the Department of Surgical Services completely pilot the EDI process within the Orthopedics specialty before moving on to ENT and other departments. Specifically, it is recommended that additional Orthopaedics physicians are added to the template. At the end of the project, the electronic discharge instructions (EDI) were piloted only within the Orthopaedics specialty. Originally, the plan was to pilot among both Orthopaedics and ENT. During the initial roll out phase, logistical issues such as physician training within PowerChart, physician requests for more customization, and concerns regarding the wording of phrases delayed the ability to roll out the process to other specialties such as ENT. In order to complete the goal, the following steps should be taken:

19 Recommendations: Strategically Roll-out Electronic DI Collection of Information 1) Identify surgeons based on case volume and procedure type. For example: include surgeons who perform knee and shoulder arthroscopies since these procedures were not included in the original pilot. 2) If available, collect the current (paper) discharge instructions that the surgeons give to their patients. If pre-printed copies are not available, ask the surgeon to complete the Ambulatory Discharge Instructions Form. 3) Look for similarities among the discharge instructions. If two or more surgeons communicate the same message, this should be a standard prompt within the EDI template. If only one surgeon communicates a unique message, this can be typed into the “what” box or added specifically for the surgeon. 4) Once the discharge instructions are identified, decide under which “domain” they should fall. For example: activity, post-operative medication, diet…. Collaborate with Information Services Documentation Specialist to have the instructions “built” into the PowerChart note.

20 Recommendations: Strategically Roll-out Electronic DI Pilot Phase 1) Once the instructions have been added to PowerChart, select two or three days, where a ‘trainer’ can assist the surgeon in completing the EDI. It is recommended that the sheet entitled Process Map-Generate Discharge Instructions-MD be used for training. 2) During the phase, identify questions or concerns raised by physicians and nursing staff. 3) Using the Request to Amend Ambulatory Discharge Instructions Form, submit any changes to the IS department. 4) Once the changes have been amended, the EDI will be ready for complete use. Pavilion Roll-out Phase 1) Using the above methodology, roll-out the EDI to all pavilions. In addition to the 2G Ambulatory Ortho and ENT notes, there is also a 2G Ambulatory General note. This note can be used as a general template for Ambulatory specialties that lack specific customizations. 2) After physicians begin to become accustomed to the EDI, begin to add specialty specific instructions using the process mentioned above in the “Collection of Information” section.

21 Deliverable 2: Discharge Process Re-design

22 Status board informs PCT/RN of patient arrival Olson Discharge Process Re-Design PCT/RN goes to waiting room to greet patient and escort back to room Patient undresses and collects valuables in preparation for nursing assessment RN conducts H/P, starts IV, informs patient of plan and potential delays RN informs family that they may visit with patient Surgeon and/or anesthesia may consult prior to case start Patient taken to OR RN reviews preliminary discharges instructions/ patient education material Pre-Operative-Recommended Process New Step Post-Operative-Recommended Process Patient taken to recovery room RN visits patient for post-op assessment Status board is updated from “In- OR” to “Post-Op” Surgeon completes discharge instructions via PowerChart Family may visit when called by nurse RN prints discharge instructions and gives to patient in discharge folder RN provides patient education and manages patient expectations RN discharges patient and informs patient of follow-up call/survey Patient remains in Phase 1 until alert New Steps

23 Deliverable 3: Discharge Phone Call Tracking

24 On average 43% of Feinberg patients were called between April and June On average 28% of Olson patients were called between April and June Discharge Phone Call Compliance n=76

25 4. Designate one RN the responsibility of assigning call backs 3. Incorporate scripting at discharge: “Thank you for choosing NMH. We will be following your care with a discharge phone call.” 2. Set a goal of 100% follow-up phone call rate 1. Develop a monthly dashboard to track compliance rates across all pavilions Recommendations for Increasing Discharge Phone Call Compliance

26 Organizational Impact of Project Electronic Discharge Instructions Maximization of current IT investment Promotes provider and staff satisfaction Competitive advantage as a Great AMC Discharge Process Re-design within Olson Allows the inclusion of family members Reinforces patient education Discharge Phone Call Tracking Additional opportunity to increase patient satisfaction Potential reduction of re-admission rates
