1 Problem List and Comorbidity Notices Webex Justine Carr John Unterborn Karen Hughes January

2 Problem List as Efficient New Source of Patient Information The problem list is now a required part of the medical record. –Efficient abstract at discharge –Shared among caregivers for continuity Physicians/LIPs must update and maintain this list. –Enter problems as they appear –Edit status at discharge –If you are going (or have gone) off service, you should still add the problem, if it is accurate Problems should appear in 3 places –On the list AND in the daily note AND in the d/c summary 2

3 Why is the Problem List important? Problem List Alerts all hospital care givers of new problems to modify care plan Alerts care givers post discharge of problems Alerts care givers on subsequent admission Ensures capture of patient complexity for coders (affects risk adjustment and payment) Achieves requirement for Hospital’s Meaningful EHR Use Certification 3

4 When to Add Problems to Problem List? Admission Automated Trigger Notice New clinical issue Transfer service Discharge 4

5 What Problems Should Be Added? Diagnoses –Reason for admission E.g. diabetic ketoacidosis –Chronic problems E.g. atrial fibrillation; hypertension; COPD Comorbid Conditions –Present on admission E.g. urinary tract infection; hypernatremia –Acquired during hospital stay E.g. acute renal failure 5

6 Who adds problems to the problem list? Last year, Nurses added problems to the problem list. This year, Licensed Independent Practitioners ( MD, DO, NP, PA, Midwife) need to add problems to the problem list and manage the problem list to insure completeness as part of the discharge information for the next care giver. Next year, we are asking Meditech to improve information flow between problem list and nurse care plan 6

7 Automated Problem List assistance Lab-driven alerts for selected diagnoses Comorbidity Notice o This is a developing pilot o Initial prompts: renal failure, respiratory failure, DKA o New prompts (1/31/13): acidosis, alkalosis, hypernatremia, hyponatremia, pancytopenia Electronic “Page one” at discharge to review and update the problem list 7

8 Ensuring Documentation Completeness Clin Doc Specialist Review charts periodically Comoribidity Alerts Real time surveillance Coders Final check at discharge 8

9 Automated assistance for Problem List Lab test exceeds threshold Alert sent to Ordering and Attending MD My Notices Comorbidity Report MD views Alert notice Problem added if accurate statement. Discharge review of problem list Problem designated as active, resolved, ruled out, inactive. 9
