Functional status outcomes for assessment of quality in long-term care. (1/806)

OBJECTIVE: Although decline in functional status has been recommended as a quality indicator in long-term care, studies examining its use provide no consensus on which definition of functional status outcome is the most appropriate to use for quality assessment. We examined whether different definitions of decline in functional status affect judgments of quality of care provided in Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) long-term care facilities. METHODS: Six measures of functional status outcome that are prominent in the literature were considered. The sample consisted of 15 409 individuals who resided in VA long-term care facilities at any time from 4/1/95 to 10/1/95. Activities of daily living variables were used to generate measures of functional status. Differences between residents' baseline and semi-annual assessments were considered and facility performance using the various definitions of functional status were described. RESULTS: The percentage of residents seen as declining in functional status ranged from 7.7% to 31.5%, depending upon the definition applied. The definition of functional status also affected rankings, z-scores, and 'outlier' status for facilities. CONCLUSION: Judgments of facility performance are sensitive to how outcome measures are defined. Careful selection of an appropriate definition of functional status outcome is needed when assessing quality in long-term care.  (+info)

The hospital multistay rate as an indicator of quality of care. (2/806)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the hospital multistay rate to determine if it has the attributes necessary for a performance indicator that can be applied to administrative databases. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: The fiscal year 1994 Veterans Affairs Patient Treatment File (PTF), which contains discharge data on all VA inpatients. STUDY DESIGN: Using a retrospective study design, we assessed cross-hospital variation in (a) the multistay rate and (b) the standardized multistay ratio. A hospital's multistay rate is the observed average number of hospitalizations for patients with one or more hospital stays. A hospital's standardized multistay ratio is the ratio of the geometric mean of the observed number of hospitalizations per patient to the geometric mean of the expected number of hospitalizations per patient, conditional on the types of patients admitted to that hospital. DATA COLLECTION/EXTRACTION METHODS: Discharge data were extracted for the 135,434 VA patients who had one or more admissions in one of seven disease groups. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: We found that 17.3 percent (28,300) of the admissions in the seven disease categories were readmissions. The average number of stays per person (multistay rate) for an average of seven months of follow-up ranged from 1.15 to 1.45 across the disease categories. The maximum standardized multistay ratio ranged from 1.12 to 1.39. CONCLUSIONS: This study has shown that the hospital multistay rate offers sufficient ease of measurement, frequency, and variation to potentially serve as a performance indicator.  (+info)

Positive predictive value of the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction in an administrative database. (3/806)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the positive predictive value of ICD-9-CM coding of acute myocardial infarction and cardiac procedures. METHODS: Using chart-abstracted data as the standard, we examined administrative data from the Veterans Health Administration for a national random sample of 5,151 discharges. MAIN RESULTS: The positive predictive value of acute myocardial infarction coding in the primary position was 96.9%. The sensitivity and specificity of coding were, respectively, 96% and 99% for catheterization, 95.7% and 100% for coronary artery bypass graft surgery, and 90.3% and 99. 7% for percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty. CONCLUSIONS: The positive predictive value of acute myocardial infarction and related procedure coding is comparable to or better than previously reported observations of administrative databases.  (+info)

Relation of surgical volume to outcome in eight common operations: results from the VA National Surgical Quality Improvement Program. (4/806)

OBJECTIVE: To examine, in the Veterans Health Administration (VHA), the relation between surgical volume and outcome in eight commonly performed operations of intermediate complexity. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: In multihospital health care systems such as VHA, consideration is often given to closing low-volume surgical services, with the assumption that better surgical outcomes are achieved in hospitals with larger surgical volumes. Literature data to support this assumption in intermediate-complexity operations are either limited or controversial. METHODS: The VHA National Surgical Quality Improvement Program data on nonruptured abdominal aortic aneurysmectomy, vascular infrainguinal reconstruction, carotid endarterectomy (CEA), lung lobectomy/pneumonectomy, open and laparoscopic cholecystectomy, partial colectomy, and total hip arthroplasty were used. Pearson correlation, analysis of variance, mixed effects hierarchical logistic regression, and automatic interaction detection analysis were used to assess the association of annual procedure/specialty volume with risk-adjusted 30-day death (and stroke in CEA). RESULTS: Eight major surgical procedures (68,631 operations) were analyzed. No statistically significant associations between procedure or specialty volume and 30-day mortality rate (or 30-day stroke rate in CEA) were found. CONCLUSIONS: In VHA hospitals, the procedure and surgical specialty volume in eight prevalent operations of intermediate complexity are not associated with risk-adjusted 30-day mortality rate from these operations, or with the risk-adjusted 30-day stroke rate from CEA. Volume of surgery in these operations should not be used as a surrogate for quality of surgical care.  (+info)

Patient factors related to the odds of receiving prevention services in Veterans Health Administration medical centers. (5/806)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the association between patient characteristics and the odds of receiving 13 health promotion/disease prevention services recommended by the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) for average-risk individuals. METHODS: A mail survey was sent to a random sample of 68,422 veterans who obtained primary care from any of the 153 Veterans Health Administration facilities in 1996; 44,304 responded (adjusted response rate was 68%). Multivariate logistic regression models were used. RESULTS: Demographic factors, health risk behaviors, and self-reported health were associated with the odds of receiving prevention services. Current smokers, heavy alcohol drinkers, and females were less likely to receive many health promotion services, whereas regular exercisers, overweight individuals, males, those reporting poorer health, individuals reporting high or controlled blood pressure, and those reporting high or controlled cholesterol levels were more likely to receive USPSTF-recommended prevention services. CONCLUSION: Substantial proportions of veterans were likely to obtain prevention services recommended by the USPSTF for average-risk individuals. Nevertheless, veterans who reported being current smokers, heavy drinkers, or female were less likely to obtain these services. These subgroups may benefit from additional initiatives.  (+info)

US Department of Veterans Affairs medical care system as a resource to epidemiologists. (6/806)

Epidemiologists have utilized several health care systems with large numbers of enrollees and centralized databases to achieve their research aims. Although containing many of the features that have made certain health care systems valuable to the conduct of epidemiologic research, the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical care system has not been well utilized by epidemiologists. This article will describe existing and planned features of this health care system that should be of interest to epidemiologists, including centralized databases that capture hospital discharge and outpatient clinic diagnostic data, a planned enrollment file that would contain all persons eligible for VA medical care, and the size and national dispersion of VA medical care facilities. Also, VA leadership has demonstrated an interest in the promotion of epidemiologic research by initiating several new programs, including the creation of three Epidemiologic Research and Information Centers (ERICs) to foster VA epidemiologic research, and announcing a program to support investigator-initiated epidemiologic research projects with VA funding. Epidemiologists with interests in medical problems that afflict veterans should consider partnerships with VA investigators to achieve their research aims.  (+info)

Outcomes monitoring and the testing of new psychiatric treatments: work therapy in the treatment of chronic post-traumatic stress disorder. (7/806)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of a work therapy intervention, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Compensated Work Therapy program (CWT), in the treatment of patients suffering from chronic war-related post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); and to demonstrate methods for using outcomes monitoring data to screen previously untested treatments. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: Baseline and four-month follow-up questionnaires administered to 3,076 veterans treated in 52 specialized VA inpatient programs for treatment of PTSD at facilities that also had CWT programs. Altogether 78 (2.5 percent) of these patients participated in CWT during the four months after discharge. STUDY DESIGN: The study used a pre-post nonequivalent control group design. DATA COLLECTION/EXTRACTION METHODS: Questionnaires documented PTSD symptoms, violent behavior, alcohol and drug use, employment status, and medical status at the time of program entry and four months after discharge from the hospital to the community. Administrative databases were used to identify participants in the CWT program. Propensity scores were used to match CWT participants and other patients, and hierarchical linear modeling was used to evaluate differences in outcomes between treatment groups on seven outcomes. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: The propensity scaling method created groups that were not significantly different on any measure. No greater improvement was observed among CWT participants than among other patients on any of seven outcome measures. CONCLUSIONS: Substantively this study suggests that work therapy, as currently practiced in VA, is not an effective intervention, at least in the short term, for chronic, war-related PTSD. Methodologically it illustrates the use of outcomes monitoring data to screen previously untested treatments and the use of propensity scoring and hierarchical linear modeling to adjust for selection biases in observational studies.  (+info)

A comparative evaluation of polytetrafluoroethylene, umbilical vein, and saphenous vein bypass grafts for femoral-popliteal above-knee revascularization: a prospective randomized Department of Veterans Affairs cooperative study. (8/806)

PURPOSE: Currently, the choice of a vascular prosthesis for a femoral-popliteal above-knee arterial bypass graft is left to the surgeon's preference, because the available information on comparative evaluations is inconclusive. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Cooperative Study 141 was established to identify whether improved patency exists with different bypass graft materials for patients with femoral-popliteal above-knee bypass grafts. METHODS: Between June 1983 and June 1988, 752 patients at 20 VA medical centers were randomized to receive either an externally supported polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE; N = 265), human umbilical vein (HUV; N = 261), or saphenous vein (SV; N = 226) for an above-knee femoral-popliteal bypass graft. The indication for the bypass grafting operation was limb salvage in 67.5% of the patients. Patients were observed every 3 months for the first year and every 6 months thereafter. All patients were instructed to take aspirin (650 mg) daily for the duration of the study.Doppler-derived ankle-brachial indices (ABIs) were determined preoperatively and serially postoperatively. A bypass graft was considered to be patent when the Doppler-derived postoperative ABI remained significantly improved (more than 0.15 units higher than their preoperative value) and additional objective information, such as angiograms or operations, did not contradict these observations. Patency failure also included bypass grafts that were removed because of an infection or aneurysmal degeneration. Patency rates were compared by using the Kaplan-Meier life table analysis. RESULTS: The cumulative assisted primary patency rates were statistically similar among the different conduit types at 2 years (SV, 81%; HUV, 70%; PTFE, 69%). After 5 years, above-knee SV bypass grafts had a significantly (P +info)

We assessed implementation of precision medicine within the Veterans Health Administration. We analyzed the use of interleukin-28B (IL28B) pharmacogenetic test, which predicts interferon-alpha treatment response in patients with hepatitis C. Patients with favorable CC genotype exhibit a two-fold higher response than patients with less favorable genotypes (CT and TT). Linking IL28B tests to Veterans Health Administration clinical data, we analyzed test use, concordance with guidelines, subsequent interferon-a treatment, and site variations.
The National Comprehensive Cancer Network and the American Society of Clinical Oncology have established guidelines for the treatment and surveillance of colorectal cancer (CRC), respectively. Considering these guidelines, an accurate and efficient method is needed to measure receipt of care. The accuracy and completeness of Veterans Health Administration (VA) administrative data were assessed by comparing them with data manually abstracted during the Colorectal Cancer Care Collaborative (C4) quality improvement initiative for 618 patients with stage I-III CRC. The VA administrative data contained gender, marital, and birth information for all patients but race information was missing for 62.1 % of patients. The percent agreement for demographic variables ranged from 98.1-100 %. The kappa statistic for receipt of treatments ranged from 0.21 to 0.60 and there was a 96.9 % agreement for the date of surgical resection. The percentage of post-diagnosis surveillance events in C4 also in VA administrative

BACKGROUND: The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) has introduced an integrated electronic medical record, performance measurement, and other system changes directed at improving care. Recent comparisons with other delivery systems have been limited to a small set of indicators.. OBJECTIVE: To compare the quality of VHA care with that of care in a national sample by using a comprehensive quality-of-care measure.. DESIGN: Cross-sectional comparison.. SETTING: 12 VHA health care systems and 12 communities.. PATIENTS: 596 VHA patients and 992 patients identified through random-digit dialing. All were men older than 35 years of age.. MEASUREMENTS: Between 1997 and 2000, quality was measured by using a chart-based quality instrument consisting of 348 indicators targeting 26 conditions. Results were adjusted for clustering, age, number of visits, and medical conditions.. RESULTS: Patients from the VHA scored significantly higher for adjusted overall quality (67% vs. 51%; difference, 16 percentage ...

By JOEL KUPERSMITH, MD. The waitlist scandals of 2014 opened a broad discussion on the future of the Veterans Health Administration (VHA). The immediate Congressional response was an Act that funded the Choice Program whereby VHA enrollees could obtain care in the community under certain circumstances. The same Act also mandated the blue ribbon Commission on Care Report and VAs Consolidation Plan, both of which had wide-ranging plans to change VHA as have similar documents by veteran service organizations (VSOs).. A central component of these plans and proposals are options for community providers to care for VHA enrollees. Although VA had only 90 days to implement the Choice Program and it has had administrative difficulties, 1 million of the 9 million VHA enrollees have received part of their care in the community via the Choice Program. Scattered programs have outsourced VHA care in the past, but a community care option is now a basic expectation for VHA enrollees, a major reform in the ...

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill mulling legislation to extend a program that lets veterans seek health care in the private sector have revived their longstanding complaints about long wait times for care at the Veterans Health Administration facilities. Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin and Dr. Baligh Yehia, the agencys assistant under secretary, appeared before the House Committee on Veterans Affairs to testify on HR 369, a bill that would allow the Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act to continue past its sunset date of August 2017. In 2014, after revelations of wait-time problems at some Veterans Health Administration (VHA) facilities, Congress created the three-year Choice program allowing eligible veterans to seek care in the private sector if they live 40 miles from a VHA facility or have to wait for more than 30 days for an appointment. The bill would let the VHA spend what remains of the initial $10 billion (about $1 billion) allocated to Choice on care in the private ...

Cost issues. Various options are available for purchasing ATDM services. The automated system used in the current study and the prior county clinic study was a Teleminder Model IV automated telephone-messaging computer produced by Decision Systems (Los Altos, CA). Vendors such as Decision Systems sell computer equipment to health care providers who then develop and manage the ATDM system with occasional technical support from the vendor. The cost for such a system is ∼$15-25 per patient annually, including the costs of computer programming and database management but excluding the services impact on nursing care costs. Other vendors develop Web-based automated telephone-messaging services according to a health systems specifications, manage patient calls, and process patients health data for providers. These services often are priced in units of patient contact time. The cost of an intervention similar to the one evaluated in the current study would be in the range of $17-30 per patient ...
The IAM is calling on top Veterans Affairs officials to ensure that employees and veterans at VA facilities are adequately protected from COVID-19.. IAM International President Robert Martinez Jr. says the agency must provide all workers with personal protective equipment, clean and sanitize workplaces in a timely manner and follow all CDC guidelines.. When it comes to the critical work our members do every day, serving and protecting our nation, the Veterans Administration must ensure that the men and women who do the work are protected from COVID-19, wrote Martinez.. The IAM and the National Federation of Federal Employees Federal District 1 (NFFE-IAM) have sounded the alarm over several VA facilities with a lack of PPE and rising COVID-19 cases. Stories have emerged of inadequate basic safety supplies, such as masks, soap and hand sanitizer.. We will be monitoring the Veterans Administration to ensure that workers are protected and that they are never forced to choose between their job and ...
Our collaborative care intervention resulted in more-rapid improvement in depression symptomatology and a more-rapid and sustained improvement in mental health status compared to a consult-liaison model that resembled the primary care-mental health relationship that exists in many primary care settings. Although there was some variability between the 2 groups in the amount of change in the SCL, SF-36 MCS, and Sheehan scales 3 and 9 months after enrollment, all significant differences favored collaborative care. Analyses adjusting for patient baseline characteristics remained significant with one exception.. To help put our findings into context, we can compare our results with the findings from a study also using the SF-36 MCS as a study outcome.45 This study of a general primary care population aged 18 to 64 compared the effectiveness of nortriptyline or 20 sessions of interpersonal psychotherapy with usual care. They found a mean change of 15 points on the SF-36 MCS in the treatment group and ...
The underlying principle of PCMH is that primary care should strive to be patient-centered-that is, focused on each patients individual needs and characteristics, rather than compelling patients to adapt to the constraints posed by the health system. VA adoption of PCMH reinforces the mission of patient-centered primary care by integrating psychosocial and environmental determinants of health. Implementation was accomplished with enhancements to staff support through new FTEE, but also by optimizing staff productivity through improved team function and interpersonal care. The expansion of primary care efforts to include care coordination and patient and family education included the expectation that a broader range of patient needs would be thereby addressed..
