A Coalition of the Willing: Data-Driven Population Health and Complex Care Innovation in Low-Income Communities

Documentary Overview
With just 5% of patients in the United States accounting for approximately 50% of the total cost of care, health care organizations are struggling to blunt the trend. Many are waiting and watching to see what healthcare reform brings. Others began their efforts a decade ago and continue to boldly innovate with new population health models of care funded by risk-based contracts. While many of the early innovators are struggling to deliver a positive return, others are finding success as they pivot their models, giving more attention to data-driven care management strategies that more predictably suggest the right level of care to the right patients at the right time. And still others are willing to redefine ‘whole person’ care as they look beyond the traditional walls of healthcare.

A Coalition of the Willing explores the successes and struggles among care teams from the Camden Coalition, Partners Healthcare, Health Quality Partners, and others, as they discover new methods to make healthcare sustainable while serving the most complex patients in their communities. In important ways, each of these organizations have discovered positive healthcare outcomes with their most complex patients by addressing solutions to housing, employment, behavioral health and social challenges in addition to their traditional healthcare needs. Critics argue the fixes are short term at best, or the result of skewed reporting, while others fear economic catastrophe still awaits these early innovators after their years of effort to prove these new models successful. Can redefining success per-patient, improving targeted interventions, and actively using care management teams actually have a long-term impact? Join us for a closer look.

Proven by many more than just these three health systems, the healthcare transformation principles are adaptions of W. Edwards Deming’s variation reduction principles applied to healthcare by Dr. David Burton and Health Catalyst co-founder, Tom Burton.

TRANSFORMATIONAL MINDSET PRINCIPLES
1. Analytics – Inform clinical decisions with insight about critical care delivery workflow, and automate the distribution of that insight
2. Best Practices – deliver optimal care at the right time every time using evidence-based guidelines, intervention criteria, referral criteria, diagnostic algorithms, order sets, and workflow checklists.
3. Adoption – Establish widespread use of outcomes improvement care practices through proven team member training critical to results at scale.
4. Adaptive Leadership Culture and Governance – Create C-level outcomes improvement champions empowered with measurement metrics to change culture and establish a data governance process
5. Financial Alignment – Deliver optimal patient results in light of the fluctuating payer and provider payment models

The Story of New Ulm: A Population Health Transformation

Documentary Overview
The town of New Ulm, Minnesota is known as the most German city in the U.S. with a heavy focus on its beer, butter, and bratwurst. Ethnically and geographically isolated in southwest Minnesota, it has become an interesting laboratory, of sorts, to experiment with population health programs focused on changing lifestyles by increasing activity, changing diets, and improving the rate of wellness screenings.
Eight years into a 10-year, $10 Million experiment to eliminate heart disease, the town is reaching its goals with reductions in cholesterol and high blood pressure, and increases in exercise, healthy food consumption, overall activity and a slowing of obesity rates well below the national averages. Key to their success is a cross-community collaboration empowered with insight about improvement opportunities by Allina Health’s data warehouse and analytics infrastructure.

Measured Outcomes: A Future View of Value-Based Healthcare

Documentary Overview
In this documentary, a co-author of Redefining Health Care and Harvard strategy professor, Michael E. Porter, PhD, shares the culmination of more than 20 years of work documenting what happens when organizations use the value-based care model. He makes the case that the healthcare industry should concentrate on quality as measured by patients, even suggesting that organizations who cannot deliver high-quality care in certain areas should redirect their resources toward care delivery where they can be the best in the world. Additionally, Marini-Klinik (a world leader in volume and quality of prostatectomies) shares how a surgeon in the group improved care quality using these patient-reported outcomes. Sahlgrenska University Hospital (Gothenburg, Sweden) and Boston Children’s Hospital add to the success stories that the value-based model is bringing to healthcare. The documentary also includes insightful commentary from Stefan Larsson, MD, PhD, Senior Partner and Managing Director at The Boston Consulting Group and Christina Akerman, CEO of the International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement.

“If today you have improved outcomes without escalating cost, you have succeeded.
If today, you have delivered equally good outcomes more efficiently, you have succeeded.
If today, you didn’t do one of those two things, you have failed.”
– Michael Porter, Co-author of Redefining Health Care and Harvard strategy professor

The Transformational Approach of Value-Based Delivery Models
Practitioners who entered medicine expecting to spend their days working to eliminate human suffering instead find themselves spending a disproportionate amount of time working through the bureaucratic issues of care delivery. Costs continue to increase, quality remains unstable, and health systems desperately seek solutions to overhaul healthcare. A value-based care delivery model, already successfully used by several healthcare organizations, promises to be part of the solution. It’s a transformational approach, requiring difficult short-term decisions in favor of long-term sustainability. And central to this approach is the measurement of patient-reported outcomes, in addition to the traditional process and clinical metrics. The value-based model incorporates what matters most to patients.

From The Heart: Healthcare Transformation From India To The Cayman Islands

low-cost, life saving services
A decade ago, this boy would have surely died because of money, but Mother Teresa’s surgeon saved him and has discovered how to make life-saving surgery affordable. The answer how will surprise you.

proven and scaleable
Mother Teresa’s personal physician saved this boy’s life. You’ll never believe how he is saving thousands of lives just like his.

A hundred years after the first heart surgery, less than 20% of the population can afford it. For 80% of the world’s population, if they ever require a heart operation, they’re going to die. This is unacceptable. Healthcare has to be available to everyone on this planet with dignity and that is what we are trying to do. And it’s going to happen, I’m convinced of that. It’s going to happen in our own lifetime.” – Dr. Devi Shetty Chairman and Founder, Narayana Health
Healthcare executives in the US, take note: A disruptive role model for healthcare is knocking on your back door.  The Health Services Authority of the Cayman Islands has been operating as an accountable care organization and practicing population health management for the past 14 years.  In the spring of 2014, Dr. Devi Shetty of Bangalore, India, in collaboration with business and government leadership of the Cayman Islands, opened the doors to a state-of-the-art hospital on the East End of Grand Cayman Island. This facility, known as Health City Cayman Islands, offers cardiothoracic surgery and other procedures, common to an aging population, at a fraction of the US cost, with better outcomes and higher patient safety. The initial target patient population is the Caribbean and bordering countries.  By the spring of 2015, Health City Cayman Islands will actively market its services to US patients, employers, insurers, and the US government. How does a geographically isolated country with a population of 50,000, with no direct taxation, manage to provide affordable, accessible, high quality, and innovative healthcare?  Can the Cayman Islands model be replicated in similarly sized communities in the US? The answer is yes, and traditional care delivery systems in the US will either feel inspired— or threatened – by this film documentary.
Produced by Health Catalyst, this documentary was originally screened at the Healthcare Analytics Summit in Salt Lake City, UT in September 2014. The glowing reception it received prompted us to share the movie with the world.
