In the immediate wake of a CMS investigation, all aspects of blood administration were evaluated to ensure the safety of patients during the blood transfusion. The Clinical Informatics department developed a multi-phased strategy to address the workflow concerns and implement changes before a full CMS survey. Blood Administration and documentation within an Electronic Medical Record provides a number of safety features including barcode technology and decision support. While there is evidence to support the efficacy of these tools, evidence on the bedside practices and humanistic factors are not well documented.  The event revealed a closer examination of bedside practices which warranted the needs to make modifications of the system. Coupled with leadership support, this yielded an increase in  blood administration documentation compliance.

One of healthcare’s biggest challenges continues to be data exchange. Leveraged correctly, health information technology can help automate efforts, increase transparency, and reduce miscommunication between health plans, providers, and healthcare organizations.
 
Join leaders from health information exchanges and provider organizations as they discuss:
 
  • How leading organizations are exchanging data to provide higher quality and a higher volume of point-of-care information and historical patient data that allows clinicians to improve both outcomes and patient satisfaction
  • How federal policy is impacting data exchange
  • How improving the data sharing infrastructure with tools like FHIR compliant APIs can help physicians jump the hurdles of interoperability in EHRs

After nearly a decade of national and local pressure to advance towards value based payment models focused on care of a population, what have we learned?  While the push to value based care continues, the landscape has not moved as quickly as many expected.     Understanding this landscape requires looking at both the national policy level and exploring the experiences of one of the most successful Medicare ACOs in the country. In this talk, Dr Whitfill will review both of these topics and highlight how new models of technology and care are required to succeed in a value based model.

Panel Discussion
 
EMR usability as well as the efficiencies of a well-built EMR are hugely important for physicians. Join our panelists to discuss how they build a culture of partnership between physician and clinician users, and IT personnel, to drive a quality EMR experience, increase EMR engagement and helping users focus on opportunities for EMR success in their organizations.
 
Discussion topics include:
 
  • Developing a non-bureaucratic governance structure that allows for changes to be made quickly to the EMR when needed
  • How they developed initial training programs, recognizing that the quality and duration of initial training are the top predictors of an individual’s EMR success
  • Building a culture of sharing, continuing education to support mastery of the EMR and helping clinicians become superusers by training them not only to successfully get data into the EMR but also to efficiently get data out of the EMR
  • Building a quality EMR – cutting through the hype and choosing a vendor that work for their organization, based on best practices and feedback from the users
