The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is the most widely used accrediting body of health plans, but no study has explored how differences in health quality affect the accreditation level. Consumers may benefit as they guide health insurance purchasing decisions toward a cost-quality evaluation. The authors conducted a multinomial logistic regression analysis using data from the 2015 NCQA Quality Compass of 351 health plans. This study's outcome variable represented NCQA accreditation at 3 levels: accredited, commendable, and excellent...

This study uses a national multi-payer claims database to test for differences in potentially inappropriate emergency department (ED) visits and ambulatory care sensitive (ACS) admissions in fee-for-service (FFS) Medicare and Medicare Advantage (MA) plans. Rates of ACS admissions for MA enrollees were approximately one third those of FFS beneficiaries, controlling for covariates, which included the beneficiary's health status as represented by their risk score. This study then compared FFS and MA beneficiaries when they moved from one type of health plan to another...

Jaeyong Bae, Kimberly J Rask, Edmund R Becker
The objective was to examine differential impacts between single-source and multiple-source electronic medical record (EMR) systems, as measured by number of vendor products, on hospital-acquired patient safety events. The data source was the 2009-2010 State Inpatient Databases of the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project for California, New York, and Florida, and the Information Technology Supplement to the American Hospital Association's Annual Survey. Multivariable regression analyses were conducted to estimate the differential impacts of EMRs between single-source and multiple-source EMR systems on hospital-acquired patient safety events...

Patients with a chief complaint of chest pain are frequently monitored by telemetry for evaluation of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). However, there is insufficient evidence to support this practice in younger patients without coronary artery disease (CAD). The objective is to assess outcomes of patients younger than 50 years of age and monitored by telemetry. Consecutive medical records of patients admitted for chest pain between January 1, 2009, and June 30, 2010, were reviewed. Patients were excluded who had a CAD history, an abnormal initial troponin, or an abnormal initial electrocardiogram...

Handoffs and rapid response team (RRT) activations have been a focus for quality improvement in hospital medicine. This study aimed to incorporate a previously used scoring system (1-7) for severity of illness on initial encounter as a handoff adjunct and to determine its impact on the number of RRTs and intensive care unit transfers. The Patient Acuity Rating (PAR) scale correlates with subsequent RRTs and transfers to a higher level of care, with higher scores leading to increased rates of RRTs and transfers...

Little is known regarding effectiveness of readmission reduction programs over time. The Heart Failure Management Program (HFMP) of St. John's Physician Group Practice (PGP) Demonstration provided an opportunity to assess outcomes over an extended period. Data from an electronic health record, an inpatient database, a disease registry, and the Social Security Death Master File were analyzed for patients admitted with heart failure (HF) for 5 years before (Period 1) and 5 years after (Period 2) inception of PGP...

Chronic pain is a prevalent chronic condition with significant burden and economic impact in the United States. Chronic pain is particularly abundant in primary care, with an estimated 52% of chronic pain patients obtaining care from primary care physicians (PCPs). However, PCPs often lack adequate training and have limited time and resources to effectively manage chronic pain. Chronic pain management is complex in nature because of high co-occurrence of psychiatric disorders and other medical comorbidities in patients...
