The Missouri Health Information Technology Assistance Center at the University of Missouri, however, is vendor neutral in its support of the adoption and implementation of EMRs by health care providers in Missouri as they move toward meaningful use.
Team of experienced, Missouri based Health IT professionals Part of a national network designated by HHS to assist providers with modernizing their practices Direct, rapid and reliable access to a pipeline of key information on health IT and meaningful EHR use 5

Brief overview of population management & reporting as it relates to meaningful use What are the benefits and barriers to meeting the standards Why is this important to you How to make sure you're on the right track for meeting the standards
Population management –a method used to identify and target a group of patients with specific health care needs and aims to improve the overall care for the targeted patients HIT can be used to help generate reports Examples of target populations may include Patients with chronic illness; Diabetes, Heart Disease, Asthma Total population in a clinic or hospital A provider panel At risk patients; pregnant women, immunocompromised patients
The use of HIT to improve population based health outcomes Provides more timely access to quality measure reporting Removes the need for manual chart audits to measure quality
Core Measures Examples Maintain an up-to-date problem list of current and active diagnosis Record demographics Menu Set Measures Examples Incorporate clinical lab-test results into EHR as structured data. Generate patient list by specific conditions to use for quality improvements, reduction of disparities, research, or outreach All Clinical Quality Measures Breast Cancer Screenings (US Department of Health & Human Services Agency for Healthcare Research and Policy) (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services)
The goal is to increase the quality of care of all patients seen. This means managing care on the patient level as well as a population. This will help to treat patients in a preventative manner, reducing the number of acute incidences in your patient population.
As with all change the main barrier is the change itself Data collection barriers Ineffective communication One vision
Help to manage a target populations chronic conditions by identifying them through reporting capabilities Implement preventive care and chronic care initiatives to improve care outcomes Reduce the number of “no shows” Increase preventive screenings Increase positive outcome for chronic conditions
Tools used to identify target population EHR Registry Other IT software (MS Excel) Reporting Point-of-care Exception reporting
Value: Improving patients health and reducing health care cost Having accurate and timely data to make informed patient care decisions. Minimize staffing resources Consolidated view of patient population Track progress of goals in a timely and accurate method $$$$ - Receive Meaningful Use Incentive money
Step 1: Make sure you are using a certified EHR Step 2: Know how to pull MU reports from your system Step 3: Document all necessary items for reports in structured fields to for the purpose of capturing usable data
Identify the appropriate patient population Start off with small changes in process Plan out the intervention Know what kind of reporting you are wanting and work towards capturing that data Exception reporting Point-of-care Apply the intervention Review often and make changes as necessary
Get Started PDSA - Accept imperfection initially: process are not perfect instantly Celebrate accomplishments even if they are small Be relentless: Persistence and determination will pay off
