Overall Best Practice Recommendation in implementing Meaningful Use Do not approach as only an IT project Establishing an ARRA executive steering committee. Assigning operational and IT owners to every objective. Focus on Long Term Goals (how to get to Stage 3) Don’t work in silos, establish multidisciplinary project teams Maintain open and constant communication Adopt internal tracking and trending tools Make MU part of department agendas Establish system to improve compliance Monitor metrics and celebrate success Adapted from HIMSS webinar by McKesson on Beyond Meaningful Use Data Driven Clinical Improvement: retrieved January 19, 2012
Best Practice Recommendations Program Management Structure Do not approach as only an IT project Assigning operational and IT owners to every objective. Focus on Long Term Goals
Program Management Structure: Stage 1 Developed Meaningful Use Program Strategy Had a master project, “ARRA Initiative”, in our MS SharePoint Project Management system. Tracking issues as well as progress of each objective was done at the ARRA program level. Each objective was assigned a Operational Business Owner as well as an IT owner. Initial gap analysis for each objective was done completed with these owners
Established PROJECTS within the PROGRAM Some individual objectives in stage 1 were managed as projects within the Program CPOE Problem List Medication Reconciliation Quality Measures Program Management Structure: Stage 1
Maintain clear communication path between PROJECTS and PROGRAM to ensure that work related to objectives: Align MU objectives with MLH goals and strategic initiatives. Continue involvement of objective owners Quality Measures evaluation Program Management Structure: Planning for Stage 2
Program Management Structure: Planning for Stage 2 Projects in progress or proposed for Stage 2 ePrescribe- Medication Reconciliation Patient Portal Health Information Exchange Business Intelligence Workflows Care Plans
Best Practice Recommendations Staffing and Communication Plans Establishing an ARRA executive steering committee. Assigning operational and IT owners to every objective. Don’t work in Silos, establish multidisciplinary project teams Maintain open and constant communication Make MU part of department agendas
Staffing Plan / Communication for Stage 1 Project Management Office
Staffing and Communication Planning for Stage 2 Expand the IT MU workgroup to be a “Multidisciplinary MU workgroup team” Define of MU objective and deliverables. Review all final objective documentation and signoffs for completion. Conduct project quality review to ensure objectives are on target and work is following program guidelines.
Methods of Program Communication Reported progress using a “MU report card” to executive steering groups Used our MS Project Management SharePoint workspace to store and share all documentation and information Provided updates at various department meetings.
Methods of Program Communication Planning for Stage 2 Stage 2 increase communication at department meetings Present MU objectives as they relate to strategic plan and other initiatives taking place in the organization.
Best Practice Recommendations Tracking and Reporting Methods Adopt internal tracking and trending tools Establish system to improve compliance
Tracking and Reporting in Stage 1 Tracked key milestones for each objective Technically available Objective being used in Production Environment Objective Met Threshold Signoff Function Live Hosp 1 Hosp 2 Hosp 3 Hosp 4 Reports Adoption
Tracking and Reporting Planning for Stage 2 Plan to follow similar model as established in Stage 1. Possibly use Business Intelligence software to generate the dashboard of objective thresholds.
Final Objective Summary Reporting Stage 1 and Plan for Stage 2 Summary per objective to capture key information about how we met the objective Description of what was done Links to any training materials or policy/procedures that may have been created or updated Signoff from owners Copies of final reports Screen prints of any new fields Reference materials
Best Practice Recommendations Monitor Metrics and Celebrate success!
Celebrate your Success Recognize that implementing Stage 1 was a result of the great efforts of many different individuals, project teams, workgroups and leadership committees working together. Take time to acknowledge this achievement and build your team relationships. These teams will be working together for a long time.

Final thoughts on recommendations we will follow again for Stage 2 Know the regulations Utilize CMS and ONC websites Work with your vendors Network- MU user group View each objective with not only “Technology in mind but People and Process” Educate and Communicate Help “connect the dots” how does MU objectives benefit and support other initiatives being worked on in the hospitals
