To remain one stage in front of the market, sharp brokers can frequently utilize their insight into authentic exchanging designs that happen amid the approach of stock parts, acquisitions, takeovers and reorganizations.

20 Things Changing EM: ACCOUNTABLE CARE ORGANIZATIONS

As explained on the Intro page this is the first in a series that seeks to explore many of the “things” that are (or could) affect the future of emergency medicine. It is part of NJ-ACEPs year-long commitment to exploring the Confusing array of changes to healthcare and identify the Opportunities for our specialty. The goal is to give you three things:

The What
The Why
The Opportunity (for our specialty)
ACO-puzzle

ACCOUNTABLE CARE ORGANIZATIONS

According to the CMS website: Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are groups of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers, who come together voluntarily to give coordinated high quality care to their Medicare patients. The goal of an ACO is to:

ensure that patients, especially the chronically ill, get the right care at the right time
avoid unnecessary duplication of services and preventing medical errors
deliver high-quality care and spending health care dollars more wisely
share in the savings it achieves for the Medicare program.
The essential component of this model is the transfer of financial risk AND responsibility for quality from the 3rd party entity (in this case medicare) to a “provider-led” organization. In some ways it is similar to the 1970s concept of Health Maintenance Organizations except that quality of care is supposed to be as important as cost reduction.

The financial incentive for an ACO is a substantial share of calculated savings in the care of medicare patients through better coordinated and (hoped for) reduced care. However in some cases the ACOs could also be liable for calculated increases in the cost of care provided. Currently there are also “33 quality reporting metrics” for physicians that effect payment under the Shared Savings Program.

Because of the size of beneficiaries required (> 5000 enrollees) and the complex network needed to provide care most ACOs have formed from large, already existing entities. In NJ many are based around hospital-centered health networks though others have formed as well. Currently there are 10 ACOs approved by CMS in our State:

Advocare Wallgreens Well Network
Atlantic Health System ACO
Atlanticare Health Solutions
Barnabas Health ACO – North
Central Jersey ACO
Hackensack Physician-Hospital Alliance
HNMC Hospital\Physician (Holy Name)
Meridian Accountable Care Organization
Optimus Healthcare Partners
Summit Health- Virtua
ACOs and EMERGENCY MEDICINE

As with so many things that will be written about in this series the future of ACOs and its impact on emergency medicine is unknown. Some emergency physicians (particularly those employed by hospitals) are already members of an ACO. Others may end up joining through their group practices or provide services to ACOs through other contracted relationships.

There are more questions than answers currently:

How will the ACOs goals of reducing the cost of care interact with our responsibilities under EMTALA and Prudent Layperson?
How would a group of emergency physicians negotiate fair payment based upon the incentives ACOs have?
And most importantly how do we show our value?
The opportunity I believe lies in that last question. We provide value now. We cost Just 2% of all US healthcare dollars. We provide acute care, safety-net care, and already straddle the link between hospital-based and out-patient care. We coordinate care for many of those same patients already.

But we need to better define that value and show that a trip to the ED is not an expense to be reduced but an important episode of care that can reduce other costs. Because this is a medicare program the patients involved are almost entirely elderly or disabled. Most of these patients present with either acute disease states complicated by chronic conditions or exacerbations of their chronic medical conditions.

So what value can we add beyond the acute episode of care? Clearly improving communication and coordination with their primary providers (most will have more than one) will be key. Others have also talked about the ED expanding its role as a hub that directs patients to the various spokes where the rest of their care is provided.

20 Things Changing EM: THE SILVER TSUNAMI

silver Tsunami

There is a tidal wave that is coming. The baby boomer generation (those born 1946-1964) are now entering retirement age. Combined with increases in life expectancy it is causing an unprecedented “graying” of the United States and most other industrialized countries. Just look at the last census. While the total population only increased by 9.7% those over 62 increased by 21%!

In the State of New Jersey those over 65 with increase from 1.2 Million now to almost 2 Million by 2030.

population over 65 by decade

So how will this impact the ED? Based on CMS data geriatric patients utilize emergency department services at a rate 7 times that of the rest of the population and generally make up 15-20% of ED volume. They account for over 40% of all admissions and nearly half of ICU admissions. While in the hospital their LOS tends to be 1-2 days longer on average. Furthermore these patients are living longer and staying independent despite increasingly complex web of chronic conditions.

As this Tsunami is crashing onto our healthcare shores other trends will be eroding the traditional care pillars. First the pool of primary care providers is graying as well and replacements are not anticipated to keep up with demand. Second despite rising demand EDs are closing along with the hospitals they are based in. Third more healthcare is expected to be provided outside the hospital setting.

So now we know we have a rapidly growing population of very complex patients to look forward to. So what should emergency medicine do? Where is our opportunity to improve care?

We in emergency medicine are in the right place and have many of the tools that this population needs. We are already experts in evaluation of acute conditions (which many of these patients will have); we have spent decades honing our system responses to critical patients (which many of these patients will be); and we are the masters of collaboration (which these patients will really need).

photoIt is in that last category that we can show the value of our care. Elderly patients and the desire to keep those with chronic, complex conditions at home will need considerable coordination of care at times of acute illness or decompensation. We are positioned to be the hub of that care by providing:

white space

Coordination of hospital resources
Coordination of community resources
Services such as extended observation (in and out of the hospital)
Palliative care
Because of our unique position and availability emergency medicine has always excelled at related tasks (observation medicine, hyperbarics, travel medicine, urgent care). While more service intensive we have the same opportunity for geriatrics. Some of these could include:

Comprehensive Geriatric Screening
Emergent/Urgent at-home evaluations through community paramedicine
Telemedicine for urgent evaluations of nursing home patients
Palliative medicine

In the ER: Too Much or Too Little Pain Medication?

  • Posted on: 16 February 2017

Do we as physicians prescribe too many narcotics? Specifically do we emergency physicians prescribe more than we should? As with much else in medicine the evidence is complex and at times contradictory. Some examples of the argument that we are not aggressive enough in the treatment of pain are the following:

Racial and ethnic disparities in pain management
Under treatment of acute pain in the emergency department
Under treatment of pain in elderly leads to opioid misuse
CMS to measure timing of ED pain medication in long bone fractures
If you have spent any time looking at the news or proposed state legislation the answer would clearly be yes. There is an epidemic of deaths related to prescription drug use and misuse. The problem is stark both in terms of the individual tragedies and sheer numbers.

The CDC has some great graphics that show the scope of the problem:

drug deaths

narcotic graph

where drugs come from

Line-Break-graphic

So where does emergency medicine come in? How big of a source of narcotics and other controlled substances are we? During a meeting with officials involved in the PMP they stated that 340,000,000 tablets of narcotics are prescribed in the State every year. That seems like a lot but how much knowingly (more on that later) comes from emergency physicians?There really is no good published data. But I have my own….

CaptureAccording to the Practitioner Self-Lookup (See Tip Box below) in the last 12 months my patients have filled approximately 300 prescriptions (4,599 tablets) for narcotics in pharmacies in the State of NJ. The average was for 15 pills of a 5mg oxycodone compound. During that time period I treated about 3,000 patients over 1200 clinical hours (almost exclusively adults).

If emergency physicians throughout the state have similar experiences than we account for 2-4% of narcotics prescribed. Hardly the likely source of most diverted or abused narcotics. From my own personal experience non-selective use of the PMP (checking everyone) is low yield (less than 8%) in terms of identifying at-risk patients. But that does not mean we don’t have a role in reducing abuse.

emergency signNJ-ACEP is actively involved through both the Board of Directors and also an ad-hoc Opiate Task Force. As mentioned earlier we met with officials from the Division of Consumer Affairs to give our constructive suggestions on how to improve the NJ PMP (njrxreport.com). This included:

Automatic enrollment
More frequent updating of information (currently twice a month)
Ability to communicate with other prescribers about at-risk patients
Significant improvements to the user interface.
We are also advocating for our physicians and our patients as legislation regarding opioid prescribing and mandatory use of the PMP are brought forward. While our formal position has not completely coalesced here are some major elements:

As emergency physicians we are on the front lines of treating the devastating effects of drug abuse (including prescription medications).
Selected use of the NJ PMP can be effective in identifying patients at risk of prescription drug abuse and diversion.
Mandatory use in the acute care setting would be cumbersome, low yield and targeted at only a small percentage of narcotics prescribed.
Increased resources to treat both addiction and pseudoaddiction are needed in our State.
Programs that remove unused controlled substances from medicine cabinets (in NJ Project Medicine Drop) are vital and need to be expanded.
As with many of our patients lack of access to appropriate care (primary care, pain management, palliative services) causes those with chronic pain to seek piecemeal treatment in the emergency department.
We will continue to update you throughout the year as more information becomes available. As always we want to hear your thoughts.
