Developing a framework for establishing clinical decision support meaningful use objectives for clinical specialties by Cheryl Damberg( )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The federal electronic health record (EHR) incentive program includes clinical decision support (CDS) as a central requirement of improving health outcomes; however, a process for identifying and prioritizing the most promising targets for CDS has not been established. CDS provides those involved in care processes with general and person-specific information, intelligently filtered and organized, at appropriate times, to enhance health and health care. This report describes a protocol for eliciting high-priority targets for electronic CDS for individual clinical specialties, which could serve to inform policymakers' deliberations and establishment of CDS meaningful use objectives. Researchers from the RAND Corporation tested the protocol with four clinical specialties: oncology, orthopedic surgery, interventional cardiology, and pediatrics. A CDS target was defined as a clinical performance gap having one or more CDS opportunities that can be implemented to address the gap. A CDS opportunity is defined as a specific CDS intervention that could be expected to address a clinical performance gap. CDS opportunities include existing CDS tools or interventions that might be developed in the short term. Identification of candidate performance gaps and CDS opportunities was based on a review of the literature and expert clinical input from the members of each of the four clinical specialty panels. High-priority CDS targets were the performance gaps that the panels rated as highly important and as having one or more CDS opportunities that could have a high impact on closing the performance gap and were considered compatible with clinical workflow. This report summarizes lessons learned from testing the protocol

Recommended Infrastructure Standards for Mass Antibiotic Dispensing by Christopher D Nelson( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 2001, the U.S. government has spent more than $7 billion to enhance state and local preparedness for bioterrorism attacks, natural disasters, disease outbreaks, and other large-scale public health emergencies. A central component of this effort involves the ability to dispense antibiotics and other life-saving medical countermeasures to large populations under short timelines. This report presents recommended standards for points of dispensing (or PODs), locations where the public would receive life-saving antibiotics or other medical countermeasures during a large-scale public health emergency. The standards, which are designed to apply to widely divergent jurisdictions, rely on expert panel evaluations, current POD planning practices, and computer-modeled scenarios
The Affordable Care Act and health insurance markets : simulating the effects of regulation by Christine Eibner( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Affordable Care Act changes the rating regulations governing the nongroup and small group markets while simultaneously encouraging enrollment through a combination of subsidies, tax credits, and tax penalties. In this report, the authors estimate the effects of the Affordable Care Act on health insurance enrollment and premiums for ten states (Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Texas) and for the nation overall, with a focus on outcomes in the nongroup and small group markets. The authors also consider the implications of two decisions confronting states: whether to expand their Medicaid programs to cover all adults with incomes below 138 percent of the federal poverty level and whether to merge or combine their small group and nongroup risk pools. The authors conclude that the Affordable Care Act will lead to an increase in insurance coverage and higher enrollment in the nongroup market. However, data limitations and uncertainties about insurer behavior make estimates uncertain, particularly when considering outcomes for the nongroup market. They find that the law has little effect on small group premiums and find large variation in the effects for nongroup premiums across states. The analysis suggests that comparisons of average premiums with and without the Affordable Care Act may overstate the potential for premium increases

A two-step procedure to estimate participation and premiums in multistate health plans by Amado Cordova( )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Multistate plans (MSPs) provide an attractive alternative among the health insurance plans established by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) because they will have to be offered in multiple states. In this study, the authors' first objective was to identify and characterize population groups that would likely be interested in enrolling in MSPs (Phase 1 of the study). The second objective was to develop a methodology to project participation and to estimate premiums for these plans (Phase 2). For this second phase, the authors developed a two-step procedure to estimate the demand for MSPs. In the first step, they used the COMPARE microsimulation model and its utility maximization algorithms to project enrollment, irrespective of whether exchange participants choose an MSP or another exchange plan. The second step consists of calculating MSP premiums by means of a tool written in the R language that separates MSP participants from enrollees in other exchange plans using criteria selectable by the user. In this report, the authors present results from Phase 1 and from the first step of Phase 2 and explain the methodology and challenges associated with the second step. National-level microsimulation results suggest that three target population groups expected to prefer MSPs are also more likely to join the exchanges than the general population by over two percentage points. States with a higher uninsurance rate and lower participation in the nongroup market under current law, such as Texas, are projected to have a larger percentage enrollment in the individual market exchanges after enactment of the ACA. Thus, these states may also have a higher percentage of MSP participants than other states. The main policy recommendation is for the Office of Personnel Management to make use of the findings of this report and to exercise the MSP premium calculator tool to aid in the implementation of the Multistate Plan Program
Compensation for accidental injuries in the United States by Rand Corporation( Book )

11 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One in every six Americans sustains an injury in an accident that results in measurable economic loss, and about one-third of those victims suffer a moderate to very severe injury that imposes significant costs on them and on society. The United States has developed a loose network of public and private programs designed to help alleviate the costs those losses impose by providing compensation to accident victims. This network includes private insurance, publicly subsidized programs like Medicare, work-related programs like workers' compensation, and the fault-based tort liability system. These programs have come under increasing scrutiny, as has the compensation network as a whole. This report evaluates the total system of compensation by examining the role of individual compensation mechanisms; investigating the experience of individual American households; and examining the ways experiences vary by accident, injury, and sociodemographic circumstances. Specifically, it presents the results of the first phase of analysis of data collected in a large, nationally representative survey, the purpose of which was to describe the universe of accidents and injuries the authors studied, develop estimates of costs and compensation, describe the liability claiming process, and examine the correlates of liability claiming
