  • Applying the Value Transformation Framework in Federally Qualified Health
           Centers to Increase Clinical Measures Performance

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Modica; Cheryl; Bay, Curt; Lewis, Joy H.; Silva, Camila
      Abstract: imageIntroduction: The transition in health care from a volume-based to value-based model of care, combined with pressures brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, makes the need for efficiency and coordination of the health center system imperative. The Value Transformation Framework (VTF), developed with health centers in mind, provides an organizing framework to support transformation of infrastructure, care delivery, and people systems.Methods: NACHC applied the VTF within a cohort of health centers across the country to drive systems change and improve performance on measures of clinical care.Results: A comparison of health centers “participating” in application of the VTF relative to “nonparticipating” health centers nationally showed improvement during 3 years of program implementation. Significant differences (p < .05) favoring health centers who participated were noted for screening of colorectal cancer (p < .001), depression (p < .001), hypertension (p < .001), obesity (p = .001), and cervical cancer (p = .011). Performance for diabetes control also favored participating programs, although the difference did not quite reach significance (p = .45).Conclusions: Applying a systems approach, organized by the VTF, with evidence-based interventions and deployed in a learning community, can result in improved performance across multiple measures of clinical care.

  • Impact of Discharge Medication Reconciliation Across a Five-Hospital
           Health System

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lee; Veronica; Kowalski, Jaclyn; Liu, Michael; Thayer, Bailey
      Abstract: imagePurpose: Hospital readmission of a primary diagnosis can have a substantial financial impact via reductions in reimbursement rates up to 3%, and have a negative impact on the lives of patients. Discharge medication reconciliation (DMR) can reduce medication errors that play a role in readmission. The objective of this study is to evaluate the impact of expanding pharmacist-led DMR across a four hospital health system on 30-day readmission rate for high risk of readmission disease groups.Methods: During the 3-month period, DMR was performed for patients with at least one of the disease states associated with a high risk for 30-day readmission, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pneumonia, congestive heart failure, or acute myocardial infarction.Results: The 30-day readmission rate for patients with a high risk for readmission disease state significantly decreased from 17.5% to 15.5% in the pre-expansion to postexpansion phase, respectively (p = .003). Discharge medication reconciliation capture rate increased from 28% pre-expansion to 35% postexpansion. After expansion, the number of DMR interventions reported by pharmacists increased 2.93 times.Conclusion: Expansion of pharmacist-led DMR as a form of transitions of care significantly decreased 30-day readmission rate for high risk of readmission disease groups.

  • COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Real-Time Throughput Analysis: Development and
           Implementation of an Innovative Data Collection Tool

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Skaggs; Michael D.; Wendel, Sarah K.; Zane, Richard D.; Resnick-Ault, Daniel
      Abstract: imageBackground: The novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has presented the healthcare system with a plethora of challenges, including implementation of an efficient vaccination strategy. Mass vaccinations have been used during previous pandemics; however, the associated data have largely been limited to theoretical simulations and post hoc analysis.Methods: An innovative data collection tool was created to deliver real-time data analysis during a drive-through mass vaccination. Patients were assigned unique identification numbers at the clinic entrance. Using these identification numbers, and the web-based spreadsheet, patients were tracked throughout the vaccination process. Static timestamps corresponding to the entry and exit at each checkpoint were recorded in real time.Results: Data were collected on a total of 3,744 vehicles over five clinic days. Total time was collected, from entry to exit, on 2,860 vehicles. Registration and vaccination times were collected on 3,111 vehicles. Of the vehicles sampled, 1,588 (42%) had data points associated with all checkpoints.Conclusions: This open-source, innovative data collection tool was successfully implemented in our mass vaccination clinic for tracking patients in real time providing actionable data on overall throughput efficiency. This cost-effective tool can be used on a variety of healthcare-related projects to provide data-driven evaluation on the efficiency of care.

  • Insulin for Hospitalized Patients With Well-Controlled Type 2 Diabetes
           Mellitus: A Quality Improvement Initiative

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Goyal; Noopur; Rose, Richard; Johnson, Stacy A.; Babbel, Danielle; Plugge, Thomas; Hodgkin, Jonathan; Simmons, Debra; Yarbrough, Peter
      Abstract: imageInpatient management of diabetes mellitus (DM) often involves substituting oral medications with insulin which can result in unnecessary insulin use. Attempting to address unnecessary insulin use, a quality improvement initiative implemented a newly developed evidence-based care pathway for inpatient diabetes management focused on patients with recent hemoglobin A1c values < 8% and no prescription of outpatient insulin. This retrospective observational preintervention and postintervention and interrupted time series analysis evaluates this intervention. Over a 21-month time period, there was a significant decrease in mean units of insulin administered per day of hospitalization from 2.7 (2.2–3.3) in the preintervention group to 1.7 (1.2–2.3) in the postintervention group (p = .017). During the initial 72 hours after admission, a significant downward trend in mean glucose values and mean insulin units per day was seen after the intervention. There was no significant change in hypoglycemic or hyperglycemic events between the two groups. The proportion of patients who received zero units of insulin during their admission increased from 27.7% to 52.5% after the intervention (p < .001). An evidence-based pathway for inpatient management of DM was associated with decreased insulin use without significant changes in hypoglycemic or hyperglycemic events.

  • Development of Quality Measures for Pediatric Agitation Management in the
           Emergency Department

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hoffmann; Jennifer A.; Johnson, Julie K.; Pergjika, Alba; Alpern, Elizabeth R.; Corboy, Jacqueline B.
      Abstract: imageObjective: Pediatric mental health emergency department (ED) visits that involve restraints for agitation are increasing. Quality measures are used to assess and improve healthcare quality. Our objective was to develop quality measures for pediatric ED agitation management informed by multidisciplinary perspectives.Methods: A multidisciplinary panel developed quality measures for pediatric ED agitation management through the modified Delphi method. Panelists ranked measures in importance and feasibility on a 9-point scale during 2 survey rounds, with a teleconference discussion between surveys. Consensus was defined by>75% of panelists ranking a quality measure highly (≥7) in importance and a median feasibility score of ≥4.Results: Panelists included 36 physicians, nurses, social workers, security, child life specialists, hospital data analysts, and parents. The panel reached consensus on 20 quality measures. Measures with the highest percentage of scores with importance ≥7 were related to adverse medication events, patients restrained, staff/patient injuries, reescalation plans, presence of an algorithm to standardize care, formal staff training on deescalation techniques, time to medication administration, and room safety.Conclusions: Twenty quality measures that incorporate multidisciplinary perspectives were developed for pediatric ED agitation management. Once operationalized and field tested, these measures may be used to assess and improve healthcare quality for pediatric agitation.

  • Patient Characteristics Associated With Missed Appointments in Pediatric
           Subspecialty Clinics

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jones; Michael K.; O'Connell, Nathaniel S.; Skelton, Joseph A.; Halvorson, Elizabeth E.
      Abstract: imageObjectives: Missed appointments negatively affect patients, providers, and health systems. This study aimed to (1) quantify the percentage of missed appointments across 14 pediatric subspecialties in a tertiary-care children's hospital and (2) identify patient characteristics associated with missed appointments in those subspecialties.Methods: We extracted patient characteristics from 267,151 outpatient appointments, between January 1, 2013, and December 31, 2018, across 14 subspecialty clinics. Medical complexity was categorized using the Pediatric Medical Complexity Algorithm. The primary outcome was appointment nonattendance. Cancellations, imaging/laboratory visits, patients older than 18 years, and duplicate visits were excluded. Characteristics associated with nonattendance were analyzed with chi-square tests and included in the multivariable model if p < .1. Missing data were addressed using random forest imputation, and assuming data were “missing at random.” Variables were considered statistically significant if p < .05.Results: Of the 128,117 scheduled appointments analyzed, 23,204 (18.1%) were missed. In the multivariable model, clinical nutrition had the greatest subspecialty odds of missed appointments, whereas cardiology had the lowest. Patient characteristics most strongly associated with missed appointments were public insurance, history of>2 missed appointments, appointment lead time, lesser medical complexity, Black race/ethnicity, and fewer medications.Conclusions: Clinical characteristics including lesser medical complexity and fewer medications are associated with missed appointments in pediatric subspecialties.

  • Cost-Effectiveness Analysis: Personal Systems Approach in Improving
           Medication Adherence in Adult Kidney Transplant Patients

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Whittington; Melanie; Goggin, Kathy; Noel-MacDonnell, Janelle; Hathaway, Donna; Remy, Laura; Aholt, Dana; Clark, Debra; Miller, Courtney; Ashbaugh, Catherine; Wakefield, Mark; Ellis, Rebecca B.; Russell, Cynthia
      Abstract: imageInterventions to improve medication nonadherence in transplantation have recently moved from a focus on motivation and intention, to a focus on person-level quality improvement strategies. These strategies link adherence to established daily routines, environmental cues, and supportive people. The objective of this evaluation was to estimate the cost of implementation and the cost-effectiveness of a person-level intervention shown to increase medication adherence. To estimate the intervention costs, a direct measure microcosting approach was used after key informant interviews with project champions and a review of implementation expenditures. Cost-effectiveness was calculated by comparing the incremental implementation costs and healthcare costs associated with nonadherence to the incremental percent adherent, defined as the percent of patients who took greater or equal to 85% of their medication doses, for each pairwise comparison. The intervention was low-resource to implement, costing approximately $520 to implement per patient, and was associated with significant improvements in medication adherence. These implementation costs were more than outweighed by the expected healthcare savings associated with improvements in adherence. This person-level intervention is a low-cost, efficacious intervention associated with significant statistical and clinical improvements in medication adherence in adult kidney transplant recipients.
