SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Proposed Project System Redesign for Value in Safety Net Hospitals and Delivery Systems This proposed project is a case study of 8 safety net (SN) hospitals. The goals of the project are to: (1) Identify the tools and resources needed to facilitate system redesign in SN hospitals and; (2) Identify any barriers to adoption of these in SN environments, or any gaps that exist in the available resources. These goals are consistent with The National Strategy for Quality Improvement in Health Care, published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in March 2011, which articulated a need for progress toward three goals: (1) Better Care, (2) Healthy People/Healthy Communities and (3) Affordable Care. SN hospitals and systems are critical to achieving all three. SN hospitals are hospitals and health systems which provide a significant portion of their services to vulnerable, uninsured and Medicare patients. While all hospitals face challenges in improving both quality and operating efficiency, safety net (SN) hospitals face even greater challenges due to growing demand for their services and decreasing funding opportunities. PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 24955 Despite these challenging environmental factors, some SN hospitals and health systems have achieved financial stability and implemented broad-ranging efforts to improve the quality of care they deliver. However, while there have been successful quality improvement initiatives for SN providers, most initiatives aim at specific units within large organizations. The improvements introduced into these units have not often been spread throughout the organization. Additionally, these improvements often are hard to sustain. ‘‘System redesign’’ refers to aligned and synergistic quality improvement efforts across a hospital or health system leading to multidimensional changes in the management or delivery of care or strategic alignment of system changes with an organization’s business strategy. System redesign, if done successfully, will allow SN providers to improve their operations, remain afloat financially, and provide better quality healthcare to vulnerable and underserved populations. Resources, as defined here, may include learning materials and environments developed to support, advance, and facilitate quality improvement efforts (e.g., tools, guides, webinars, learning collaboratives, training programs). The term ‘‘resources’’ should not be interpreted here to imply financial support for routine staffing or operations of Safety Net systems, but may include quality improvement grants, fellowships, collaboratives and trainings. Many tools, guides, and other learning environments have been developed to support the implementation of individual quality improvement initiatives. However, the development of resources to support alignment across multiple domains of a health system has been limited. Furthermore, the applicability of existing resources to SN environments is unknown. This study is being conducted by AHRQ through its contractor, Boston University, pursuant to AHRQ’s statutory authority to conduct and support research on healthcare and on systems for the delivery of such care, including activities with respect to the quality, effectiveness, efficiency, appropriateness and value of healthcare services and with respect to quality measurement and improvement. 42 U.S.C. 299a(a)(1) and (2).

These interviews may be conducted one-on-one or in small groups, depending upon the participants’ availability. The purpose of these interviews is to learn directly from hospital leadership and staff about the resources they have used to support and guide their system redesign efforts and what, if any, gaps there are in the resources available to them. (2) Collection of documentation from each SN hospital. The documentation to be collected includes annual reports, performance dashboards, reports on specific system redesign and quality improvement projects and hospital newsletters. The purpose of this task is to provide supplementary information presented as illustrative of the issues facing SN hospitals engaging in system redesign—rather than as representing the quantity or distribution of conditions and practices within SN hospitals. All presentations and publications will state the limitations of our case-study methodology. about the hospitals and their quality improvement and system redesign efforts. Collection of documentation from participating hospitals will allow the research team to collect additional information that is readily available in hospital documents, but may not be known or readily accessible to interview subjects during their interviews. The findings and recommendations developed from this project will be disseminated through AHRQ networks and through our partnership with the National Association of Public Hospitals and its membership group to ensure that findings are reaching administrators at public and SN hospitals directly. In addition, findings will be published in peer-reviewed and trade literature so that they will be available to a wide range of SN delivery system managers and clinicians for use in hospitals and healthcare systems.

Since its launch in 2000, the ClinicalTrials.gov system has registered over 90,500 trials. The large volume of studies currently listed in ClinicalTrials.gov and the high usage numbers suggest that the system has been successful at improving access to information about clinical studies. However, while ClinicalTrials.gov supports the listing of observational studies, such listing is not required. Patient registries are a distinct type of observational study. Patient registries may be designed for many purposes, such as to observe the natural history of disease, examine comparative effectiveness, or fulfill post-approval commitments. Patient registries have specific characteristics that are not PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 currently captured on ClinicalTrials.gov. To date, some registry sponsors have attempted to leverage the observational study model to post patient registry-type records on ClinicalTrials.gov. However, stakeholders have noted that the system does not fully meet their needs. Patient registries have received significant attention and funding in recent years. Similar to controlled interventional studies, patient registries represent some burden to patients (e.g., time to complete patient reported outcome measures, risk of loss of privacy), who often participate voluntarily in hopes of improving knowledge about a disease or condition. Patient registries also represent a substantial investment of health research resources. Despite these factors, registration of patient registries in ClinicalTrials.gov is not currently required, presenting the potential for duplication of efforts and insufficient dissemination of findings that are not published in the peer-reviewed literature. To ensure that resources are used in the most efficient manner, registries need to be listed in a manner similar to that of trials in ClinicalTrials.gov. By creating a central point of collection for information about all patient registries in the United States, the Registry of Patient Registries (RoPR) helps to further AHRQ’s goals by making information regarding quality, appropriateness, and effectiveness of health services (and patient registries in particular) more readily available and centralized. The primary goal of this project is to engage stakeholders in the design and development of a RoPR database system that is compatible with ClinicalTrials.gov and meets the following objectives: (1) Provides a searchable database of patient registries in the United States (to promote collaboration, reduce redundancy, and improve transparency); (2) Facilitates the use of common data fields and definitions in similar health conditions (to improve opportunities for sharing, comparing, and linkage); (3) Provides a public repository of searchable summary results (including E:\FR\FM\26APN1.SGM 26APN1

Method of Collection

    To achieve the goals of this project the following activities and 
data collections will be implemented:

[[Page 24956]]

    (1) In-person interviews will be conducted during a 2-day site 
visit with senior medical center leaders, clinical managers and staff 
involved in system redesign from each of the 8 participating SN 
hospitals. These interviews may be conducted one-on-one or in small 
groups, depending upon the participants' availability. The purpose of 
these interviews is to learn directly from hospital leadership and 
staff about the resources they have used to support and guide their 
system redesign efforts and what, if any, gaps there are in the 
resources available to them.
    (2) Collection of documentation from each SN hospital. The 
documentation to be collected includes annual reports, performance 
dashboards, reports on specific system redesign and quality improvement 
projects and hospital newsletters. The purpose of this task is to 
provide supplementary information about the hospitals and their quality 
improvement and system redesign efforts. Collection of documentation 
from participating hospitals will allow the research team to collect 
additional information that is readily available in hospital documents, 
but may not be known or readily accessible to interview subjects during 
their interviews.
    The findings and recommendations developed from this project will 
be disseminated through AHRQ networks and through our partnership with

to ensure that findings are reaching administrators at public and SN 
hospitals directly. In addition, findings will be published in peer-
reviewed and trade literature so that they will be available to a wide 
range of SN delivery system managers and clinicians for use in 
hospitals and healthcare systems. Findings will be presented as 
illustrative of the issues facing SN hospitals engaging in system 
redesign--rather than as representing the quantity or distribution of 
conditions and practices within SN hospitals. All presentations and 
publications will state the limitations of our case-study methodology.
