One of the tenets of ‘meaningful use’ is that the EHR has to be used to demonstrate improvement in patients and their care. This applies not only to each individual patient, but also to aggregate groups of patients.
Today, one of the healthcare journals published an article about a new plan developed by Medicare that will provide incentives to providers (read as ‘physician practices’) who use the new system.
Dickerson, V. (2016). Medicare will test population-health approach to stroke and heart disease risk. Retrieved from http://www.modernhealthcare.com/article/20160721/NEWS/160729979/medicare-will-test-population-health-approach-to-stroke-and-heart
Read the article, then answer these questions:
A nurse practitioner – whose practice is confined to cardiac disease – is concerned about this new process. She called IT for help – they referred her to you.
What answers will you give him about:
Will there be a difference in care from the patients’ perspective?
How does ‘predictive modeling’ work? What does the NP have to do to make the predictions work?
Describe any possible changes in the delivery of patient care – for the NP and for the patient.
Detail the process of predictive modeling.
Explain how this fulfills the mandate of the ACA’s ‘Meaningful Use’.
Justify your answers with appropriate research and reasoning, using the library to search for articles to support your opinions. Write in APA format.
