Work on clinical content projects Terminologies? CCD?

25 AAP Council on Clinical Information Technology Beki Marshall

26 AAP Council on Clinical Information Technology (COCIT) Serves as the home for health information technology initiatives within the AAP About 600 members with special interest or training in applying information technology to pediatric practice An 11-member volunteer Executive Committee oversees COCIT activities

27

28 COCIT Strategic Plan Developed June 2007-April 2008 Will guide COCIT activities in

29 COCIT Mission The mission of COCIT is to provide strategic direction and leadership to promote affordable, child-friendly health information technology (HIT) and health information exchange (HIE) solutions that support quality care; and to drive the creation and successful deployment of systems which have these characteristics.

30 COCIT Vision Every infant, child and adolescent would be cared for in every venue with the necessary health information technology that is both cost effective and improves the quality of health care, regardless of socio-economic status.

31 Goal #1: Ensure Health IT solutions are child-friendly, affordable, cost effective, and support quality care. Advising the Certification Commission on Health Information Technology on Requirements for Child Health Develop an implementation strategy based on the results of the AAP Periodic Survey of Fellows addressing pediatrician adoption of electronic health records

32 Goal #2: Support the usage of pediatric HIT and HIE in actual practice, with a particular focus on addressing the Child Health Priorities identified in the AAP Strategic Plan. Develop two electronic health passport test cases for children and youth in foster care Establish a work plan to address the intersection between electronic health records and immunization information systems Develop a plan for continuously improving the following COCIT offerings: Pediatric Office of the Future (Exhibit at AAP National Conference & Exhibition) Pediatric Documentation Challenge (At NCE and TEPR) Council Program for Council Members (At NCE, includes scientific abstract program) Technology Learning Center (At NCE) EMR Review Web Site (including Buddy List)

33 Goal #3: Increase the visibility and effectiveness of the efforts of COCIT and the AAP in providing HIT and HIE direction and leadership. Establish a schedule of topics and authors to write a monthly article on health information technology for a non-COCIT AAP publication Develop a policy statement on the role of HIT and HIE in pediatrics Create a 1-2 page concept paper on COCIT s activities to inform the work of the AAP Chief Quality Officer Develop a concept and/or grant proposal to develop an institute for HIT within the AAP whose mission would be to provide strategic direction and leadership in promoting affordable, child-friendly health IT and HIE solutions that support quality care and drive the creation and successful deployment of these solutions

34 Goal #4: Provide high value for COCIT members. Establish a COCIT mentoring program to assist the general membership in getting involved with COCIT initiatives and HIT/HIE projects Develop a welcome kit for new members Develop a two-page checklist for COCIT members that summarizes recommendations from the Special Requirements for Electronic Health Records Systems in Pediatrics clinical report, the Implementing an Electronic Health Record toolkit, and other resources for pediatricians to use in the vendor selection process

35 Next Steps Recruit volunteers from COCIT membership to form teams to address objectives To establish a work plan and concrete tasks to address objectives To recruit additional volunteers from COCIT membership to complete specific tasks within the work plan To review the Strategic Plan annually and update as objectives are completed

36 Childrens Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) $5 million/year for 5 years to develop a model electronic health record format for children in Medicaid and CHIP Funding to be distributed through Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality

37 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) $19 Billion in incentives through Medicare and Medicaid for meaningful use of HIT Established Health IT Policy and Standards Committees Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT

38 AAP Vision The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) views the implementation of the Medical Home (MH), the deployment of health information technology (HIT), and the reform of healthcare as parallel and intertwined processes. To achieve this potential, HIT must be designed, deployed, implemented, and managed effectively, not only as a simple documentation tool for payment, but as the ongoing, organized source of information for future evidence-based medicine.

39 Meaningful Use Potential for each state Medicaid agency to develop its own definition Legislation requires e-prescribing, quality reporting, and health information exchange Meaningful use in pediatrics may be different than for adults Fewer meaningful quality measures ADHD meds cannot be e-prescribed Various state laws/policies on adolescent privacy limit health information exchange opportunities

40 HL7 Child Health Linkages Potential opportunities to explore Standards for electronic health passports for children in foster care Standards for model electronic health record format for children Supporting state and regional immunization information systems in adopting HL7 immunization transactional standards Others?

51 Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel Overview HITSP is an effort to identify existing standards that promote interoperability between health information systems The Players American Health Information Community (AHIC) is now National eHealth Collaborative (NeHC) Nationwide Health Information Network(NHIN) Certification Commission for Healthcare IT (CCHIT)

52 HITSP Previous Process AHIC and its workgroups release Use Cases with priorities for interoperability HITSP and its Technical Committees develop Interoperability Specifications (IS) IS draw upon existing standards from HL7, IHE, others Efforts like NHIN and CCHIT rely on these IS ONC provides staff support

53 HITSP New Process ARRA defined a Policy and Standards Committee which have recently formed with WGs HITSP continues under contract to ONC NIST now has testing role Not clear where HITSP priorities come from Status of NeHC (AHIC Successor) uncertain

54 Link with Alliance Previous Alliance helped recruit volunteer participation in work groups Alliance participated in public comments on behalf of pediatric community Future TBD

55 HL7 Child Health Linkages Previous Minimal formal connection: some participants heavily involved in HITSP work Future TBD

56 CCHIT Child Health Work Group Certification Criteria Aileen Sedman, MD

57 CCHIT Overview CCHIT is an independent, nonprofit organization that has been recognized by the federal government as an official certification body for electronic health record products Its mission is to accelerate the adoption of health information technology by creating a credible, sustainable product certification program More information on CCHIT and CCHIT Certified products is available at

58 CCHIT and Child Health Child Health Expert Panel formed 2007 Asked to create criteria that could be added to ambulatory, inpatient, ED (i.e. a company could ask for this special designation along with foundational requirements) First criteria created 2007 for testing in growth tracking and age specific vital signs First testing and certified products late vendors applied for 2008 child health certification; anticipate completion by June 30, 2009 (41% of ambulatory certification) Certified vendors: Panel completed gap analysis with HL7 Child Health functional profile – gaps as foundation for future criteria development

59 Alliance Link Alliance lobbied CCHIT to form Child Health Work Group Submits letters of endorsement for pediatric work group volunteers Coordinates pediatric community input into public comment periods

60 HL7 Child Health Linkages Previous A number of participants are volunteers on CCHIT work groups Joy, Aileen and Pele performed gap analysis to ensure consideration of HL7 child health functional profile Participants invited to submit comments to Alliance Future More of the same Other?

61 National Quality Forum and Health Information Technology Expert Panel Paul Fu, Jr., MD, MPH

62 HITEP - I Overview In 2007, AHRQ commissioned NQF HITEP - I to address the ability of EHRs to create and aggregate data for quality measurement Recommended a high-priority set of quality measures (84) Identified a set of required data categories (11) and data types (39) to be incorporated into HITSP IS06 Quality Identified gaps AHIC Quality Workgroup recommended further development of these data types into a quality data set (QDS) and an environmental scan of workflows needed to generate data for measures

63 HITEP – II Overview Focus of HITEP - II is on identifying workflows and data sources and making recommendations for a standardized quality data set (QDS) Expert Panel and two workgroups Workflow workgroup (Paul Fu, Jr., MD, MPH; Brian Jacobs, MD) – describe efficient capture of standard data elements from appropriate authoritative sources QDS workgroup (David Stumpf, MD, PhD) – expands on the data categories, types, and elements from HITEP – I and HITSP by adding data concepts, identifying code sets, and describing common value thresholds

64 Current Status HITEP – I final report Recommended Common Data Types and Prioritized Performance Measures for Electronic Healthcare Information Systems HITEP – II draft report Health IT Enablement of Quality Measurement – the Quality Data Set (QDS) and Dataflow Open for public comments until June 30, ments/index.asp Alliance submitting joint pediatric HIT comments (send comments to Joy by June 24)

65 Health Quality Measure Format NQF issued a subcontract to: Create a Health Quality Measure Format (HQMF) for the electronic representation of measure specifications, and Write an HL7 Structured Document to facilitate implementation of the new format, resulting in successful balloting and approval by a standards development organization Awarded to Alschuler Associates in May 2009 Same vendor who worked with HL7 Child Health on HL7 Quality Reporting Document Architecture (QRDA) Alliance lobbying for inclusion of pediatric measure/s

66 HITEP Recommendations for Future Work Ongoing maintenance of the QDS Maintenance of reusable code lists Development of a measure authoring tool Enhanced coordination with SDOs and EHR certification bodies to encourage incorporation of quality data types into EHR data sets

67 HL7 Immunization Messaging Implementation Guide Rob Savage

68 American Immunization Registry Association Information systems are important tools supporting full immunization

69 Overview IIS is population based data source IIS source of complete immunization record IIS support for assessing coverage IIS support for VFC usage and soon ordering of vaccine IIS using HL7 to share data with EHR-S Millions of HL7 transactions in 2008

70 Priorities Improving interoperability through new HL7 Implementation Guide Goals include Accurate, tightly constrained IG Support for better query Support for use of profiles Assuring that functionality provided by IIS is included in any future evolution

71 Challenges Existing implementations are successful but not consistent across vendors Upgrading and aligning will cost money/ effort Landscape is changing (less silos) Version 2.x is where we are. Some want to move to version 3 (messages vs documents)

72 HL7 Child Health Linkages Support in ballot process Work with your EHR-S to interact with IIS Work with your IIS to support upgrading

73 Other Updates, Q&A and Discussion
