Comparison of clinical and administrative data sources for hospital coronary artery bypass graft surgery report cards. (1/20)

BACKGROUND: Regardless of statistical methodology, public performance report cards must use the highest-quality validated data, preferably from a prospectively maintained clinical database. Using logistic regression and hierarchical models, we compared hospital cardiac surgery profiling results based on clinical data with those derived from contemporaneous administrative data. METHODS AND RESULTS: Fiscal year 2003 isolated coronary artery bypass grafting surgery results based on an audited and validated Massachusetts clinical registry were compared with those derived from a contemporaneous state administrative database, the latter using the inclusion/exclusion criteria and risk model of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. There was a 27.4% disparity in isolated coronary artery bypass grafting surgery volume (4440 clinical, 5657 administrative), a 0.83% difference in observed in-hospital mortality (2.05% versus 2.88%), corresponding differences in risk-adjusted mortality calculated by various statistical methodologies, and 1 hospital classified as an outlier only with the administrative data-based approach. The discrepancies in volumes and risk-adjusted mortality were most notable for higher-volume programs that presumably perform a higher proportion of combined procedures that were misclassified as isolated coronary artery bypass grafting surgery in the administrative cohort. Subsequent analyses of a patient cohort common to both databases revealed the smoothing effect of hierarchical models, a 9% relative difference in mortality (2.21% versus 2.03%) resulting from nonstandardized mortality end points, and 1 hospital classified as an outlier using logistic regression but not using hierarchical regression. CONCLUSIONS: Cardiac surgery report cards using administrative data are problematic compared with those derived from audited and validated clinical data, primarily because of case misclassification and nonstandardized end points.  (+info)

Bridging the gap between evidence and practice in venous thromboembolism prophylaxis: the quality improvement process. (2/20)

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is considered to be the most common preventable cause of hospital-related death. Hospitalized patients undergoing major Surgery and hospitalized patients with acute medical illness have an increased risk of VTE. Although there is overwhelming evidence for the need and efficacy of VTE prophylaxis in patients at risk, only about a third of those who are at risk of VTE receive appropriate prophylaxis. To address the shortfall in VTE prophylaxis, the US Joint Commission and the National Quality Forum (NQF) endorse standardized VTE prophylaxis practices, and are identifying and testing measures to monitor these standards. Hospitals in the USA accredited by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to receive medicare patients will need VTE prophylaxis programs in place to conform to these national consensus standards. This review aims to give background information on initiatives to improve the prevention of VTE and to identify key features of a successful quality improvement strategy for prevention of VTE in the hospital. A literature review shows that the key features of effective quality improvement strategies includes an active strategy, a multifaceted approach, and a continuous iterative process of audit and feedback. Risk assessment models may be helpful for deciding which patients should receive prophylaxis and for matching VTE risk with the appropriate intensity of prophylaxis. This approach should assist in implementing the NQF/Joint Commission-endorsed standards, as well as increase the use of appropriate VTE prophylaxis.  (+info)

The impact of a citywide audit with educational intervention on the care of patients with epilepsy. (3/20)

The care of patients with epilepsy historically has been well documented to be poor. Previous attempts to improve care through education have been unsuccessful. The New GP Contract in the UK introduced epilepsy as a core quality indicator from April 2004. This prospective audit assesses the impact of an audit with educational intervention on the process of care of patients with epilepsy. The case notes of 610 patients, of all ages, with epilepsy on treatment, in 13 general practices serving Chester and surrounding area were reviewed before and 2 years after an intervention, comprising (a) the provision of a comprehensive template, (b) individualised categorisation for each patient and (c) an educational session led by a Neurologist. The overall review rate increased in the first year from 41 to 49% (p<0.0001) and by 2 years to 63% (p<0.0001). Documented remission rate increased from 29 to 43% (p<0.0001). Admissions to accident and emergency fell significantly (p=0.0026). There was no fall in the non-compliance rate. Forty five percent of patients with documented poor control were not under shared care. Issues highlighted in the audit generated 77 referrals. There were clear health gains in 62 (13%) individuals from referrals and practice interventions related to the audit. This original audit identified significant improvements in review rate, documented remission rate and beneficial outcomes in individual patients. The changes were attributable to both the educational intervention and the coincidental acceptance of the New GP Contract. Remaining problems include lack of shared care for patients with active epilepsy.  (+info)

Use of a registry-generated audit, feedback, and patient reminder intervention in an internal medicine resident clinic--a randomized trial. (4/20)

BACKGROUND: Disease registries, audit and feedback, and clinical reminders have been reported to improve care processes. OBJECTIVE: To assess the effects of a registry-generated audit, feedback, and patient reminder intervention on diabetes care. DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial conducted in a resident continuity clinic during the 2003-2004 academic year. PARTICIPANTS: Seventy-eight categorical Internal Medicine residents caring for 483 diabetic patients participated. Residents randomized to the intervention (n = 39) received instruction on diabetes registry use; quarterly performance audit, feedback, and written reports identifying patients needing care; and had letters sent quarterly to patients needing hemoglobin A1c or cholesterol testing. Residents randomized to the control group (n = 39) received usual clinic education. MEASUREMENTS: Hemoglobin A1c and lipid monitoring, and the achievement of intermediate clinical outcomes (hemoglobin A1c <7.0%, LDL cholesterol <100 mg/dL, and blood pressure <130/85 mmHg) were assessed. RESULTS: Patients cared for by residents in the intervention group had higher adherence to guideline recommendations for hemoglobin A1c testing (61.5% vs 48.1%, p = .01) and LDL testing (75.8% vs 64.1%, p = .02). Intermediate clinical outcomes were not different between groups. CONCLUSIONS: Use of a registry-generated audit, feedback, and patient reminder intervention in a resident continuity clinic modestly improved diabetes care processes, but did not influence intermediate clinical outcomes.  (+info)

Quantifying data quality for clinical trials using electronic data capture. (5/20)


Will the NHHRC recommendations drive quality performance? (6/20)

General practice is the heart of the Australian health care system, addressing the health needs of people, in their communities and in diverse locations and contexts across Australia. With over 100 million items of service claimed by general practitioners each year, even small but incremental improvements in quality have the potential to translate into population level gains in the outcomes and safety of general practice care. In recent years, Australian general practice has undertaken significant work in quality improvement, with practice accreditation to The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners standards and the Australian Primary Care Collaboratives Program being examples. Will the recommendations of the National Health and Hospitals Reform Commission (NHRC) enhance this work?  (+info)

Improving GP diabetes management - A PDSA audit cycle in Western Australia. (7/20)

BACKGROUND: Tight glucose, blood pressure and lipid control in patients with diabetes can reduce morbidity and mortality from macro- and micro-vascular complications. However, treatment targets are not being met in a large proportion of patients. Clinical audit involves cycles of evaluation of current activity against standards. It allows problems to be identified and action to be taken to address them. METHODS: Annual retrospective audits over 3 years of random samples of up to 20 patient medical records from 13 general practitioners in the midwest region of Western Australia (n=807). Statistical tests compared the second and third audits with the first in regard to completeness of screening, health indicators, and the proportion of patients within The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners and Diabetes Australia guidelines targets. RESULTS: While there was a significant improvement in lipid monitoring over the study period (p<0.001), monitoring of HbA1c and blood pressure (BP) remained unchanged. Between the first and third audits, a reduction in mean HbA1c (p<0.001), mean total cholesterol (p=0.017), mean LDL cholesterol (p=0.014) and mean systolic BP (p=0.002) was seen. There was an improvement in the proportion of patients achieving cholesterol goals (measured by LDL and reaching a target of HbA1c <7%) between the first and third audits; however the proportion with BP within target declined. In the third audit, 11% of patients on diet alone, 36% on an oral hypoglycaemic agent, 90% on three oral hypoglycaemic agents and 84% of those on insulin were outside the target HbA1c. In the same audit, of those outside target BP, 53% were on no treatment and 65% were only on one type of medication. Eighty-seven percent of patients outside target cholesterol levels had not been prescribed a statin. DISCUSSION: Many of the audited GPs in our study undertreated BP, HbA1c and cholesterol. Improvement in some areas was seen over the study period, which may have been due to the quality assurance activities undertaken. These results reveal a therapeutic opportunity for reducing cardiovascular events in patients with diabetes. More aggressive management of BP and lipids by GPs may see rewards in terms of reducing cardiovascular events in patients with diabetes.  (+info)

The Stroke Practice Improvement Network: a quasiexperimental trial of a multifaceted intervention to improve quality. (8/20)


Electronic data capture systems (EDCs) have the potential to achieve efficiency and quality in collection of multisite data. We quantify the volume, time, accuracy and costs of an EDC using large-scale census data from the STRATAA consortium, a comprehensive programme assessing population dynamics and epidemiology of typhoid fever in Malawi, Nepal and Bangladesh to inform vaccine and public health interventions. A census form was developed through a structured iterative process and implemented using Open Data Kit Collect running on Android-based tablets. Data were uploaded to Open Data Kit Aggregate, then auto-synced to MySQL-defined database nightly. Data were backed-up daily from three sites centrally, and auto-reported weekly. Pre-census materials costs were estimated. Demographics of 308,348 individuals from 80,851 households were recorded within an average of 14.7 weeks range (13-16) using 65 fieldworkers. Overall, 21.7 errors (95% confidence interval: 21.4, 22.0) per 10,000 data points were found

American pharma firm AbbVie is taking NHS England to court over a procurement process aimed to help England become the first country in the world to eradicate the hepatitis C virus (HCV). AbbVie started proceedings in Londons Technology and Construction Court this summer. The Health Service Journal (HSJ) reports that NHS England asked the pharmaceutical industry in January this year to work with us in its drive to eliminate the incidence of hepatitis C by 2025.. AbbVie, it is understood, claims the NHS breached its duty to treat all bidders fairly in what has been dubbed the largest ever drug procurement process, worth hundreds of millions of pounds.. NHS England has denied the allegations.. The NHS wants to buy drugs in bulk to keep costs down in its bid to eliminate hepatitis C five years ahead of the World Health Organisations 2030 target. It had hoped to begin prescribing the lower-cost drugs in October but HSJ says it has learned that the programme will be on the back burner until ...

Mean and median pre-treatment GTV were 146cm3 and 109cm3 (range 3-679cm3). The median overall survival for all patients was 16.0 months (CI 13.0-19.0). We defined two groups based on the median value of the GTV. The overall survival of patients with a GTV < 109cm3 was 24.0 months (CI 15.5-32.5) compared to 11.0 months (CI 9.7-12.3) for those with GTV > 109cm3 (log-rank p=0.002). A simple Cox regression model was constructed entering age, gender, stage, histology, chemotherapy and GTV as covariates. Pre-treatment GTV (p=0.004) and the use of chemotherapy (p=0.03) were significant variables predictive of survival. 53 patients received induction chemotherapy. In 45 patients with retrievable data, mean GTV pre chemotherapy and post chemotherapy were 177 cm3 and 99 cm3 retrospectively with mean shrinkage of 44%.. ...
It can make or break a womans entire look. The truth is, until a husband purposely develops himself so that he can build this sort of partnership with a woman, he will continue to endure in misery and unhappiness in his marriage. A single kind of play is exactly where a man is not just a sex slave, but is forced to dress and act as a woman, probably even in public, and to take the passive sexual role as would a submissive woman. It may well involve the man being physically restrained so that he is unable to resist.. But that is a lengthy, lengthy way from wanting to be a dominant female. The critical distinction is a chastity husband desires to surrender to his need whereas a chastity slave desires to surrender his will. The former is most likely going to be eye-catching to most ladies for the reason that it doesnt mean if she embraces the male chastity life-style her man has to come to be subservient to her..

The findings suggest that while a majority of graduates were entrustable, there was large variability within the graduating class. We also found that the ratings of entrustability based on level of required supervision were associated with the more typical peer-based normative ratings provided by programs directors. It is worth noting that at this time, the CHM curriculum is not competency-based and was not organized specifically around the Core EPAs. It is also noteworthy that the program directors were surveyed on average on Day 216 of the program, in contrast to the Core EPAs, which focus Day 1 ready graduates. Thus, it is difficult to delineate the contribution of the residency program to ratings of entrustability. And for those almost one-in-ten graduates who were generally not entrustable (five or fewer functions), the additional time in the residency program had not helped them achieve a level of entrustability comparable to their peers. The findings, while preliminary and limited to a ...
This post is the first in a three-part series about the transformations that are occurring throughout the clinical research industry and Clinipace Worldwides effort to bring more efficiency and transparency to the process.]. In recent years, most clinical trial stakeholders (Sponsors and CROs) have migrated from paper-based clinical research processes (Clinical Research 1.0) to technology-based tools such as electronic data capture and clinical trial management layered on top of existing (and often inefficient) methods (Clinical Research 2.0). While these technologies have improved many aspects of the research process, they have also reinforced existing silos among clinical trial stakeholders and clinical trial processes.. Therefore, the benefits of technology have not been fully realized.. The independent systems and software make cross talk among functions difficult and integration among functions expensive. The end result is widespread duplication of effort and frequent mis-communication. ...

M Bocan1, J Pokorny2. 1Department of Biomedical Sciences, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia PA.. 2Prevail Infoworks, Inc., Philadelphia PA. Electronic data capture (EDC) systems are a critical clinical trial tool to aggregate data and ensure data integrity. Comfortability and understanding of the EDC system is important in making sure that the results of a trial are clean and trustworthy. Currently, there is no work comparing the training techniques for EDC systems. It is hypothesized that there will be a shorter lag between training and system use for users who utilize an online training (OT) and they will produce less queries in the system than those who attended an investigator meeting (IM). The EDC of a global, multi-site clinical trial with two cohorts was used to collect the length of time between training and system use and the number of queries per subject for each site. Those trained via IM (n=83) acted as control and OT (n=149) as the case as IM is the standard practice. For ...

When my eldest arrived in junior high (7-8), he commented that the grade curve had changed. Many of the kids (mostly girls) who always had As in ES were struggling to get Bs and lots of kids (mostly boys) who had a pattern of Bs and Cs were now getting As. The difference was SUBJECT CONTENT AND WRITING MECHANICS; no longer did artsy-crafty presentation count enough to balance weak content, grammar or spelling. Sadly, by the time my youngest kids arrived at the school, it had become a MS (despite overwhelming community objections), and the former HS-type structure and orientation had been replaced by artsy-crafty, touchy-feely stuff that was just as bad as it had been in ES. Making it pretty was just as important as getting the right answer. Sigh ...
