Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services Health Information Exchange: HFS Perspective Mary McGinnis HIE Project Manager Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services
In Illinois – On February 4, 2009, Governor Pat Quinn signed Public Act into law, appropriating $3 million to the Department of Healthcare and Family Services to establish a program for health information exchange planning. Across the Country – The American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA), signed into law on February 17th, dedicates more than $20 billion nationwide in federal funding to implement electronic health records and health data exchange by Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services
The ARRA statute includes the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009 (HITECH Act), which sets forth a plan for advancing the appropriate use of health information technology to improve quality of care. The Office of the National Coordinator (ONC), which was funded by the HITECH Act, is the principal federal entity charged with coordinating the effort to implement a nationwide HIT infrastructure that allows for the electronic use and exchange of health information. Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services
The HITECH Act authorizes CMS to administer incentives to eligible professionals and hospitals for meaningful use of electronic health records. These incentives are anticipated to drive the adoption of EHRs. There are three critical prerequisites to qualify for incentives. Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services
1.Clinicians and hospitals must acquire and implement certified EHRs in a way that fully integrates these tools into the care delivery process; 2. Technical, legal, and financial supports are needed to enable information to flow securely to wherever it is needed to support health care and population health; 3. A skilled workforce needs to support the adoption of EHRs, information exchange across health care providers and public health authorities, and the redesign of work-flows within health care settings to gain the quality and efficiency benefits of EHRs, while maintaining individual privacy and security. Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services
Improve healthcare quality and outcomes Reduce medical errors and redundant services Improve patient safety Enhance coordination of patient care among providers Reduce health disparities Deliver healthcare more cost efficiently Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services
With funding from PA , HFS awarded 16 grants across Illinois for HIE planning The goals of HIE Planning Grants are to: establish the governance structures promote provider collaboration develop the social capital necessary to sustain HIE develop an operational framework develop a financially sustainable state-level HIE promote state-level interoperability
Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services Conduct a state-wide survey to determine the level of EHR adoption in Illinois To leverage federal incentives for EHR adoption and health information exchange outlined in ARRA and the HITECH Act Plan for ability to share protected health information from disparate information systems and service providers within their MTA
Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services Grantees must encourage Meaningful Use of HIE within their Medical Trading Areas Meaningful use must be consistent with the requirements set forth by HHS, and include: E-prescribing Active exchange of health information Active electronic reporting of quality measures
Provide access to comprehensive patient health data for the patients health care team Use evidence-based order sets and Computer- based Provider Order Entry (medication, laboratory, procedures, diagnostic imaging, immunization and referral) Apply clinical decision support at the point of care Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services
Capability to exchange key clinical information (e.g., problem list, medication list, allergies, test results) among providers of care electronically Perform medication reconciliation at relevant encounters and each transition of care Communicate with public health agencies Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services
Generate lists of patients who need care, use these lists to reach out to patients (e.g., reminders, care instructions, etc.) Provide patients and families with timely access to data, knowledge, and tools to make informed decisions; manage their health Report to patient registries for quality improvement, public reporting, etc. Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services
HISPC – Illinois; Multi-state collaborative Ensure privacy and security provisions Developing privacy notices, consent forms for disclosure of PHI Analyzing interstate and intrastate legal concerns Testing provider and consumer education materials Its Safe, Its Secure, Its Time Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services

T HE U LTIMATE O BJECTIVE EHRs used interactively at the point of care delivery interoperable with all relevant data sources complimenting the caregiver with a body of knowledge and clinical tools accessible by patients and other providers Enabling the practice of Evidence Based Medicine and Quality Measures
M ANAGING P ATIENT B EHAVIOR & C ARE D ELIVERY Reducing the variation of treatment thru alerts and reminders at the point of care (45% of care is either under or over utilized) Providing Quality measures and reporting against evidence based medicine (EBM) standards Managing and influencing patient behavior by increased communications with caregivers and patient health information
P ROJECT W ORK P LAN AND B UDGET Produce a Project Work Plan and Budget that plans a program for the mass deployment of EHRs and an HIE. This will take advantage of economies of scale and shared services to most efficiently and effectively transform healthcare in Southern Illinois.
