Using the Electronic Health Record to Address LGBT Disparities in Primary Care

Oct 26, 2017 11:00am ‐ Oct 26, 2017 12:30pm

Identification: IThE1

LGBT people face stigma and related health disparities in health care. In spite of the advancements in LGBT acceptance and policy, many LGBT people remain largely invisible to their providers. Meaningful Use Stage 3 includes the requirement that all certified EHR systems have the capacity to record sexual orientation (SO) and gender identity (GI). HRSA now requires that all FQHCs report SOGI data on their annual Uniform Data Systems (UDS) reports. Collecting SOGI data of patients is critical in order for health care organizations to provide a welcoming, inclusive environment and allow HCPs to better understand their LGBT patients. Routine SOGI data collection in the EHR can be used to measure and track health outcomes at the individual and population levels. The EHR is an important tool for managing quality for populations and developing quality and monitoring reports, like a Transgender Dashboard, that can help reduce health disparities. Experiences and processes of implementing changes within the EHR and workflows will be shared. Training all staff, including non-clinical staff, are key to the successful implementation of SOGI data collection and creating a LGBT inclusive environment in primary care.

Innovative Data Mining and Analytics: Population Health 2.0

Oct 26, 2017 11:00am ‐ Oct 26, 2017 12:30pm

Identification: IThD1

Many community health centers have access to a plethora of data that are not fully utilized and analyzed. In collaboration with the University of California at Irvine (UCI) Division of Hematology, we sought to take a closer look at two rare blood disorders-- thrombocytosis and erythrocytosis. The initial screening for these disorders can be easily noted from a CBC with evidence of an elevated platelet count or hemoglobin level. We sought to run a data mining pilot project to delineate how many of our patients could potentially have these rare blood disorders. In our initial data filter, there were about 100 patients who had elevated levels of platelets which will need further investigation. The researcher and hematologist/oncologist at UCI will also address our providers on this topic and our future research collaboration, as approximately 20 percent of these patients may also have an associated co-morbid inflammatory bowel disease and would benefit from genetic testing. This pilot project will demonstrate how partnerships between community health centers and major university research institutions can function in the future models of population health and data analytics/mining.

Analyzing Federal Funding Changes

Oct 26, 2017 11:00am ‐ Oct 26, 2017 12:30pm

Identification: IThC1

There are several threats to health center funding at the federal level – the 330 funding cliff, repeal of the Medicaid expansion, and block grants/per capita caps. This session will present analytical tools to measure the financial impact of each potential change. Presenters will also evaluate strategies that health centers can develop now to address funding changes.

Your Health Center Billing Department: Highly Functioning or Not?

Oct 26, 2017 11:00am ‐ Oct 26, 2017 12:30pm

Identification: IThA1

With ever-shrinking grant funding, billing incomes are the number one source of revenue for community health centers (CHCs). As CHCs add new programs, open new access points, or operate in Medicaid expansion regions, the billing department grows not only in importance but in complications as well. This will become ever more critical with proposed changes to the insurance market in 2017 and beyond.  This high-level overview gives CHC Leadership easy-to-use tools that allow them to measure and benchmark their organizations against similar CHCs in their own states as well as nationally. These tools will allow you to track payments per encounter, denial (nonpayment) rates, proper staffing, and the overall performance of your billing department.

Keeping It Simple: Using Data to Demonstrate the Value of Health Centers on One Page 

Oct 26, 2017 2:00pm ‐ Oct 26, 2017 3:30pm

Identification: IThC2

Demonstrating the value of a health center in a simple format is harder than it looks. The Massachusetts PCA, HCCN, and Capital Link worked together to produce a one-page, easy-to-read handout that highlights the data that presents health centers in a positive light. Figuring out which data to use and which to omit was difficult, but the end result is an easy-to-use, flexible document that can serve a variety of needs for any health center.

  • Diana Erani, HCCN Director, Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers
  • Allison Coleman, Executive Director, Capital Link , Chief Executive Officer, Capital Link

I’m Average at Everything and Not Excellent at Anything, But What If I Wasn’t?

Oct 26, 2017 2:00pm ‐ Oct 26, 2017 3:30pm

Identification: IThB2

This workshop will take the operational results of an average health center and look at the risks of maintaining the status quo. Presently health centers have incentive to analyze their operational results and going forward they will have a need. The presenters will discuss the recent trends related to health center cost of care and model both the operational and financial effects of moving the needle up or down on various cost drivers.

Practical Considerations When Adding a Site

Oct 26, 2017 2:00pm ‐ Oct 26, 2017 3:30pm

Identification: IThA2

Growth is a primary objective of most health center strategic plans and is often accomplished through the addition of new sites. Many organizations focus on the planning and construction, and the excitement of that first day. But there are myriad regulatory steps to perform to ensure you receive appropriate payment for the services delivered at your new site. BPHC, Medicare, and Medicaid each have specific requirements, as do NCQA and other accrediting bodies. Incomplete or missing forms can delay eligibility for payment and result in cash flow challenges. Presenters will discuss these various requirements and provide a tool for tracking needed activities.
