About CDEMS
 

Chronic Disease Electronic Management System Open source, public domain patient registry for disease management and reporting ◦ Developed by the Washington State Dept of Health ◦ Used across the United States
◦ Customizable based on user needs ◦ Exchanges data with other systems ◦ Highly ranked in “Chronic Disease Registries: A Product Review” available at:
http://www.chcf.org/documents/chronicdisease/ChronicDiseaseR egistryReview.pdf

The Care Model – Our Reference Point

Benefits of using CDEMS
1) Monitor patient care
◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ Structure & checklist for standardized approach to care Reminders for patients and providers Facilitates care planning for individual patients Gaps in care can be identified for action

2) Monitor health center / provider performance

◦ Summarizes population level data ◦ Documents outcomes for UDS, PQRI, quality certifications, payfor-performance reimbursements

3) Tool for transitioning to EMRs and/or supplement to EMR reporting
◦ Low-cost alternative for tracking quality of care

National CDEMS Support Group
Designed to facilitate collaboration, sharing, problem solving
• Registry basics; Evaluation; Use of data for QI; Data exchanges; EMR issues

Group Membership (formed July 2007)
April 2008:
• 55 support group members • 18 states • Members included program implementation staff and technical support staff

April 2009:
• 97 support group members • 21 states • Expanding membership to: • More registry users • Health educators • Other chronic disease programs (cardiovascular, asthma)

Stories to Share…
Ways in which CDEMS is being used across the United States

Washington State Department of Health


CDEMS used for 5 conditions in the WA State Collaborative to Improve Health
Diabetes  Asthma  Hypertension  Obesity Prevention and Treatment in Children  Medical Home for Children with Special Health Care Needs


 

Joint Medical Home Collaborative being formed between WA State DOH and WA Academy of Family Physicians CDEMS developments: NCQA / HEDIS / PQRI reporting; increased reporting flexibility; data validation routines

Utah Diabetes Prevention and Control Program



 

Utah DPCP administers State Certification for 18 DSME Programs Offers CDEMS as one way of addressing care improvement 5 of the 18 use CDEMS to manage patient data CDEMS also used for annual outcomes reporting


Example: Pre/Post-program HbA1c results

Kansas Diabetes Prevention and Control Program


Implementing CDEMS in 90 locations across the state
Diverse settings (safety net clinics, farmworker program, home health agencies, local health department, Indian health clinic)  Various conditions (diabetes, diabetes with disabilities, cardiovascular cohort, arthritis)





Applied “push software program” to CDEMS sites to retrieve data to a central repository DPCP has the ability to query aggregate data statewide, regional, or by clinic  Outcomes: 50% improvement (2005-2008) in key diabetes indicators

Detroit Medical Center


Established a pay-for-performance incentive program (12 practices; Blue Cross patients)


Focus: Chronic disease management  Diabetes  Asthma, COPD  CHF, CAD  Well-Child

 CDEMS

helpful in getting private practice physicians to understand population-focused disease management
Helps identify patients that “fall through the cracks”  Benchmarking care against national care standards


Integrated Health Partners
 Using CDEMS to:

received from various EMRs  Create a common taxonomy, which in-turn allows for cross-organization reporting, analysis, and quality improvement


 Standardize data

Developed standard data protocol for use by EMR vendors when writing-out data for import into CDEMS


Built data exchange tools to:  Receive data  Check for validity  Conduct analyses

Akron Children’s Hospital




Using CDEMS for pediatric diabetes and pediatric asthma quality of care Program designed to insure continuity of care across home, school, and community
Tracking educational progress  Tracking goals and outcomes from diagnosis until adulthood




Also using CDEMS for American Diabetes Association program recognition


Potential for registry use to be replicated to main hospital campus

Rhode Island Department of Health


Health Systems Coordinator (within DPCP program) provides all sites with continuity in CDEMS training, updates, and support



In-state collaborative includes:
Asthma  Cardiovascular  Colorectal  Diabetes  Diabetes Prevention


Johns Hopkins University


Implementing CDEMS in the Trinidad and Tobago Health Sciences Initiative


Potential for expansion into the Pan-American Health Organization Caribbean Diabetes Improvement Collaborative





Partnered with WVU OHSR to modify CDEMS for use at point of care  Data entry directly into Progress Note  “Stoplight” reporting for patients and providers  Integration with retinal photography and point-of-care lab equipment JHU School of Nursing: AADE-7 measures

West Virginia Bureau for Public Health & WVU Office of Health Services Research


CDEMS is used by the following WV BPH chronic disease programs:
Diabetes Prevention and Control  Cardiovascular Health  Asthma Education and Prevention




Currently partnering with 51 care sites, and growing




Focusing on quality of care, across various CIS Improved Outcomes: “Electronic Patient Registries Improve Diabetes Care and Clinical Outcomes in Rural Community Health Centers”*

 

Finding registry functions weak/missing in some systems CDEMS developments: Progress Note data entry; flow sheets; additional reporting features; EMR data exchange

Different Stories, but Shared Traits


In each case, Quality Improvement is the driver


Many needs center on reporting, data exchanges, and overall registry functionality




In each case, CDEMS is an applicable solution
National CDEMS Support Group allows for increased collaboration, sharing, and communication
Participants being different needs and perspectives to the group  Created a learning environment

