Agenda Overview and Introductions Initial Patient Encounter Tools for Encounter Improvement Rethinking Feedback Questions Closing
Initial Patient Encounter What is the Definition of Patient Engagement? Patient Engagement is a hot topic amorphous and appealing enough to mean many things According to Kaiser, Patient Engagement includes things like decreased mortality rates and fewer emergencies From the literature, Patient Engagement fosters a fruitful collaboration in which patients and clinicians work together to help the patient progress towards mutually http://thehealthcareblog.com/blog/2013/09/12/patient-engagement-on-metrics-andagreed-upon
health goals. meaning/ What is Patient Engagement Patient engagement is a process in which patients become invested in their own care. Engagement develops naturally when there is regular, focused communication between patient and provider. It can lead to behaviors that meet or more closely approach treatment guidelines. Patients engaged in their own care may make fewer demands on the health care system and more importantly, they enjoy improved health. Research shows that informed and engaged patients take a more active role in their own care.
Healthcare organizations are discovering how patient engagement contributes to their financial and quality objectives. Fostering Patient Engagement Determine what patient engagement really means and develop metrics or outcomes to demonstrate it Foster collaboration between patients and clinical staff Establish with patients mutually agreed-upon health goals based on their needs, priorities, and preferences Develop strategies to measure the quality patient/provider collaborative processes.

Question to Consider How can we improve initial and ongoing encounters with patients? Tools for Encounter Improvement Tools for Encounter Improvement How can our organization identify areas for organizational improvement to improve quality activities?

common the word was used This type of visualization can assist with exploring and analyzing words It can also be used to communicate the most salient points or themes http://betterevaluation.org/evaluation-options/wordcloud Healthcare Stories Project Activity 1: Word Clouds Raises awareness about patients views on quality of care Facilitates conversations around quality between patients and providers

Touch points are the points of contact with a service and intensely personal Big Moments on the journey where one recalls being
touched emotionally or cognitively that cause deep and lasting memories (Bate and Robert, 2007) Healthcare Stories Project Activity 2: Visit Mapping Healthcare User Visit Experience Mapping A method that asks users to offer reactions to the elements of their healthcare visit Touch points Deeply felt moments, positive or
negative, in healthcare delivery Benefits of Activity 2: Gain relevant information about the service delivery process Identify services that critically shape user experiences of quality of care Fully engage healthcare users in QI processes Editable PDF for Distribution to Consumers http://cdn.hivguidelines.org/wp-content/uploads/20160825082806/hcsp-activity-2-experience-mappingform-editable.pdf
Touch Points/Visit Mapping and Word Clouds Create a touch point map for your organization or clinic to identify key moments in care Brainstorm touch points with your Consumer Advisory Board and compare with your version Use the touch point map to solicit feedback on flow stations to identify what encounters might need improvement Pair touch points with word clouds to further your data on patient experience in your clinic Can help with survey fatigue for providers and

Initial Meeting with Case Manager and Clinician. Questions to Consider How are your patients introduced to your clinic? Is the moment of first contact the receptionist or perhaps it occurs during a separate registration process? Was the patients first encounter with a provider or a visit to have blood drawn at a separate lab? How does the hand-off occur between your
clinic and external community-based organizations conducting HIV screening and/ or referrals? Is your clinic passive or active in shaping how The Secret Shopper Commercially used to report on the quality of services to a corporate headquarters The person doing the evaluation is unknown to the service provider
Useful to see what a potential patient may go through as they try to enroll or access services Encounter improvement also requires Addressing Health Disparities Using your selected measures, identify whether you have disparities present in your patient population Collaborating versus Competing
Working together, sharing ideas, setting goals Implementing Lessons Learned From the Field Example: Engage your patients in the process of improving engagement! Rethinking Feedback What Ernesto Sirolli learned in Zambia How do we avoid the Hippos?
What you do [to provide better aid is] you shut up. You never arrive in a community with any ideas. ~ Ernesto Sirolli Moving to Improvement So you have Assessed your organization Mapped your touch points Solicited feedback via a word cloud Identified an opportunity for improvement

For most patients, a low level of HIV viremia indicates that they are engaged in HIV medical care. Reference: Quinn TC et al.
