Step Up Cincinnati Challenge Launching April 2018
Three local nonprofits partner in innovative approach to neighborhood health improvement

CINCINNATI – Three local nonprofits are launching an employer walking challenge designed to accelerate neighborhood health improvement strategies across the region while activating employer wellness programs.

The go Vibrant Step Up Cincinnati Challenge, presented by Gen-H is a 30-day walking challenge coordinated by The Health Collaborative, go Vibrant, and the United Way of Greater Cincinnati.

Building on the success of the Step Up Cincinnati Challenge in 2016, The Health Collaborative once again partnered with United Way to collect “wagers” from employee teams during the fall 2017 campaign.

New this year, The Health Collaborative also partnered with go Vibrant, which coordinates the annual neighborhood Million Step Challenge, to present a user interface that seamlessly integrates step counts from wearable technology to the website. Steps will be tracked and logged via fitness device, free app or smartphone, or company health portal and linked to the go Vibrant portal. The aggregate steps will then be reported on the Challenge website, where a real-time leaderboard will be available during the challenge, as well as news and events, community walking routes, and promotion materials for employers to share with employees before and during the challenge.

The wager, or entry fee, is staked to the challenge based on the size of the participating organization. The teams with the highest average steps per participant rake the pot to have the proceeds donated in their name to Gen-H and go Vibrant to support their neighborhood health improvement strategies.

The winners (organizations with less than 1,000 employees, and those with more than1,000 employees) will then be recognized at the Cincinnati Business Courier’s Healthiest Employers celebration in early May 2018.

The 30-day walking challenge will run from April 1 through April 30, 2018. The list of current Step Up Cincinnati Challengers includes:

Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber
CompMed
The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer
Fifth Third Bank
GBBN Architects
General Electric
The Health Collaborative
London Computer Systems
Mercy Health
Michelman, Inc.
Ohio National Financial Services
TriHealth
USI
YMCA of Greater Cincinnati

Organizations wishing to participate in the 2018 challenge can still do so at genh.healthcollab.org/sign-up or by contacting RCochran@HealthCollab.org.

“The health of our community is a shared asset,” says Craig Brammer, CEO, The Health Collaborative. “Its value is determined by how much we invest in it. This Challenge does just that: investing in the communities while challenging our local employees to step towards healthier behaviors.”

“With engagement from our region’s employers, we become better positioned to achieve our vision for a stronger, healthier community, putting us steps closer to achieving the United Way Bold Goals through the community’s Gen-H health agenda and go Vibrant’s neighborhood health initiatives,” said Rob Reifsnyder, President & CEO, United Way of Greater Cincinnati.

“At go Vibrant our mission is to make active living irresistible in Greater Cincinnati,” said Laura Chrysler, Executive Director, go Vibrant. “We are excited to bring another step challenge to our community – this time, activating our local organizations as leaders in active living while fostering healthy competition amongst area employers.”

THC Participates in SHIEC’s Patient Centered Data Home Initiative

The Health Collaborative Participates in National Launch of SHIEC’s Patient Centered Data Home Initiative

PCDH Launch Lays Foundation for HIEs to Support Better Patient Care by Making It Possible to Deliver Patient Medical Record Alerts Across the Country

CINCINNATI (January 4, 2018) – The Health Collaborative (THC) has announced its participation in the official launch of the Patient Centered Data Home (PCDH) initiative, a nationwide initiative coordinated by the health information exchange (HIE) members of the Strategic Health Information Exchange Collaborative (SHIEC). SHIEC is a collaborative representing health information exchanges (HIEs). The announcement signals that HIEs throughout the country are now actively sharing data with each other to support mobile patient populations. Connecting HIEs ensures that patients’ medical records follow them from one care setting to another regardless of where they receive care regionally, thereby improving care delivery and the patient’s experience of care.

THC participated in a pilot initiative known as the “heartland region” throughout 2016, one of three smaller production implementations created within regions to prove the concept of inter-HIE information sharing and alerting. This network of networks was designed to retrieve data broadly, without the care team knowing where the patient records reside. A patient having a heart attack in Cincinnati, who lives in Indianapolis, spends summers in Michigan, and had an emergency three years ago while on business in Tennessee, should have her complete medical record available to her Cincinnati treatment team.

THC was the recipient of a High-Impact Pilot grant from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) to implement PCDH for the heartland pilot project. 17 HIEs participated across the three production implementations, and based on their successes, the participating HIEs have each agreed to a common, national agreement for participation, which set the stage for connecting the implementations and rolling out the full-scale, national implementation.

The heartland region connects the following HIEs: The Health Collaborative (THC) in Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky; Indiana Health Information Exchange (IHIE) in Indiana; HealthLINC in Bloomington, Indiana; Great Lakes Health Connect (GLHC) and Michigan Health Information Network (MHIN) in Michigan; Kentucky Health Information Exchange (KHIE) in Kentucky; and East Tennessee Health Information Network (etHIN) in eastern Tennessee. The heartland region is currently working to connect to other PCDH pilot sites across the country in the southern and western parts of the country.

“We are proud to be counted among a larger network of technology innovators who strive to advance the exchange of health information,” said Craig Brammer, CEO of The Health Collaborative. “It was the foresight of our local health systems leaders some 15 years ago that led us to this place, where we are viewed as leaders in collaborative digital health solutions.”

What is PCDH?

At its core, PCDH is an inter-HIE notification and data sharing system that allows a patient’s records to follow them wherever they seek care. Because patients are unrestricted by geographic boundaries when they seek care, it is common for a person to be treated by a doctor, clinic or hospital a distance from where they live. Frequently the “away” treatment facility is not a part of the same HIE in which the patient’s “home” doctors participate. As a result, there is a higher risk that the clinician treating them will not have access to the patient’s full medical records to support diagnoses and treatment plans.

To more quickly alert the treating physician that there are medical records available for access from the patient’s doctors at home, and to provide a specific query location to retrieve those records, HIEs worked together to create the technical ability for HIEs to automatically notify each other regarding the existence of a patient’s medical records and to synchronize the patient’s identity among the HIE systems.

The mechanism that makes this work is very straightforward. When a patient presents at a medical facility away from home, that facility will generate an Admission, Discharge, Transfer (ADT) message. This message includes demographics about the patient; information such as the patient’s name, the patient’s location in the hospital, his or her address, phone number, gender, etc. By including ZIP Code information in the ADT, PCDH can automatically detect when a patient is being treated within a ZIP code outside of their normal home area.

When these events occur, the “away” HIE alerts the HIE in the patient’s home area, and that home HIE, known as the patient’s “data home,” automatically lets the treating HIE know they have records for the patient so the treating HIE can generate a query to access those records. Once the treatment encounter concludes, PCDH also makes it possible for the “away” HIE to alert the patient’s home HIE that there are new records for their patient that the home HIE providers can access in order to better care for the patient on an ongoing basis. This new capability makes it possible for a patient’s comprehensive medical history to follow them wherever they seek treatment.

Hospitals Alert Community of Visitation Restrictions

Hospitals Alert Community Of Visitation Restrictions
Greater Cincinnati hospitals implement restrictions to limit spread of flu and other respiratory illnesses this season

CINCINNATI – With the start of a new flu season, local hospitals are beginning to see a significant increase in the number of respiratory illnesses, including flu, throughout the region.

Many hospitals in southwest Ohio, northern Kentucky, southeast Indiana, and Dayton are currently implementing limited visitation policies to minimize the spread of respiratory diseases to hospital patients.

For the hospitals that are limiting visitors, most are initiating the following restrictions:

  • No visitation by anyone who is ill with any respiratory symptoms including coughing, sneezing, runny nose, fever, etc; and
  • No visitation by anyone under the age of 14

Hospitals’ decisions about visiting restrictions vary with the types of patients they serve and the specific services provided. For example, hospitals serving special patient populations such as obstetrics, pediatric, burn, transplant, or ICU patients may institute more restrictive visitation policies.

Also, hospitals that provide obstetrical services may make exceptions to the restrictions for a newborn’s siblings who have received their flu vaccination at least 14 days prior to visiting. Hospitals will consider other exceptions on a case-by-case basis.

In addition to visitation restrictions, area hospitals have made other efforts both independently and collaboratively to protect their patients as much as possible from being exposed to respiratory illnesses including flu. Vaccination of healthcare workers is a primary strategy being used by hospitals in the region to ensure that healthcare workers and others who interact with patients have received vaccines and won’t inadvertently spread flu to their patients.

Hospitals have also put “respiratory etiquette” practices in place. Alcohol hand gel, tissues, and face-masks are available to patients and visitors throughout the hospitals, particularly in emergency departments and waiting rooms, and in some cases a separate area has been established in waiting rooms for individuals with any respiratory illness symptoms.

“Please help to prevent the spread of germs that may make others sick,” said Tonda Francis, VP of Regional Coordination and Clinical Initiatives at The Health Collaborative. “If you have a cold, cough, the flu, or other respiratory illness, don’t visit patients in hospitals or other healthcare facilities. In fact, the best precaution is to stay home. If you must go out, remember to cover your cough and wash your hands frequently.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses. It also recommends careful hand-washing, coughing and sneezing into a sleeve or a tissue, and staying home from work or school when you are sick.

“It is not too late to get a flu shot. Even though flu season is ramping up, there is time to get protected as flu kicks into high gear,” said Francis, adding that there is no anticipated shortage of the vaccine this year.

For more information on flu prevention, go to: http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/preventing.htm. For the most up-to-date information on flu shot availability locally, contact your physician, pharmacist, or local health department.

Most area hospitals will discontinue visiting restrictions when flu activity has declined in the region.
