Healthcare IT News - Sebelius heads to Mayo Clinic for news conference

June 2, 2010

ROCHESTER, MN – Health information technology will top the agenda at the Mayo Clinic Thursday morning at a news conference led by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. U.S. Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken; U.S. Reps. Tim Walz, Betty McCollum and Ron Kind; and Mayo Clinic President and CEO, John Noseworthy MD, will join Sebelius to highlight Mayo Clinic's patient-centered, high-value care approach as well as its health information technology efforts.

Mayo Clinic, recognized by The Leapfrog Group as one of the best health systems in the country, is known as a leader on the information technology front. The Mayo Clinic College of Medicine in Rochester, Minn., recently received a $12.2 million Beacon Community grant, one of 15 federal grants awarded to communities and organizations across the country to serve as models for healthcare IT use. Mayo Clinic will use the grant on work to enhance patient management and to reduce costs associated with hospitalization and emergency services for patients with diabetes and childhood asthma. It will also work to reduce health disparities for underserved populations and rural communities.

Mayo Clinic also received $15 million from the federal SHARP program (Strategic Health IT Advanced Research Projects) to study the secondary use of EHR data. It aims to develop strategies to make use of data that will be stored in EHRs to improve the overall quality of healthcare, while maintaining data privacy and security.

Mayo Clinic is partnered with GE Healthcare and Intel on a yearlong study evaluating the benefits of remote monitoring devices for home-based patient care.

Recently Mayo Clinic announced it would integrate Mayo Clinic EmbodyHealth, a personal health management portal, with the Dossia Personal Health Platform.

Modernhealth.com - Friedman sees big potential in SHARP research

In just a couple of years, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology at HHS will be looking for tangible results from the $60 million in public investment that the ONC has made in the Strategic Health IT Advanced Research Projects.

Charles Friedman, chief scientific officer at the ONC, also expects the unanticipated will emerge from the research and development program, called SHARP for short.

“You never know what's going to result from what you fund directly, but I can tell you now, the synergies have an enormous chance of paying dividends above and beyond the funding of these groups,” Friedman said. “The coalitions that are being formed through SHARP will yield these benefits beyond even the work being funded.” READ MORE

HIMSS News - ONC Announces SHARP Awards: A Look at Secondary Use of EHR Data Research By Christopher G. Chute, MD, DrPH

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) awarded $60 million in research grants through the Strategic Health IT Advanced Research Projects (SHARP) Program to the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Harvard University, University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, on behalf of a consortium of several entities, proposed research that will generate a framework of open-source services which can be dynamically configured to transform EHR data into standards-conforming, comparable information suitable for large-scale analyses, inference and integration of disparate health data.

These services will be applied to phenotype recognition (disease, risk factor, eligibility or adverse event) in medical centers and population-based settings. Finally, we examine data quality and repair strategies with real-world evaluations of their behavior in Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSAs), health information exchanges (HIEs) and Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN) connections.

The Mayo-led consortium has assembled a federated informatics research community committed to open-source resources that can industrially scale to address barriers to the broad-based, facile and ethical use of EHR data for secondary purposes. We will collaborate to create, evaluate and refine informatics artifacts that advance the capacity to efficiently leverage EHR data to improve care, generate new knowledge and address population needs. Our goal is to make these artifacts available to the community of secondary EHR data users, manifest as open-source tools, services and scalable software. In addition, we have partnered with industry developers who can make these resources available with commercial deployment.

We propose to assemble modular services and agents from existing open-source software to improve the utilization of EHR data for a spectrum of use-cases and focus on three themes:

  • Normalization
  • Phenotypes
  • Data Quality/Evaluation

Our six projects span one or more of these themes, including:

  • Semantic and Syntactic Normalization
  • Natural Language Processing (NLP)
  • Phenotype Applications
  • Performance Optimization
  • Data Quality Metrics
  • Evaluation Frameworks

Each of these services will have open-source deployments as well as commercially supported implementations.

Christopher G. Chute, MD, DrPH, established the Division of Biomedical Informatics at Mayo Clinic, overseeing a program of applied research and development focusing upon clinical and genomic data sources, management, standardization and interpretation.

Mayo Clinic and the SHARP grant

April 06, 2010

Mayo Clinic Awarded Major Health Information Technology Grant

ROCHESTER, Minn. — Citing Mayo's ability to translate research and innovation into medical practice, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has named Mayo Clinic as one of four institutions to receive a significant research grant as part of the Strategic Health IT Advanced Research Projects (SHARP) program. Mayo will receive $15 million as part of an overall $60 million awarded. Other awardees include Harvard University, the University of Texas Health Science Center and the University of Illinois.

Mayo's role will be to research and advance methods for using electronic medical records for such additional purposes as medical research, while also "maintaining privacy and security." Mayo has been a pioneer in adopting the electronic medical record (Mayo has had paperless records since 2005) and an innovative leader in using medical records to advance research.

"This is a great recognition of Mayo's leadership in this area and this award will allow us to develop methods so we effectively share this approach with others," says Christopher Chute, M.D., Dr. P.H., Mayo principal investigator.

The government announcement says the research will involve interdisciplinary efforts among researchers, health care providers and the technology industry. The goal is to integrate findings into medical practice quickly across the nation.

"This is not ivory tower research," says David Blumenthal, M.D., national coordinator for Health Information Technology. "Its goal is to quickly infuse the dynamic health IT sector with new thinking, ideas and solutions."

"There's a clear need for progressive and innovative thinking to overcome barriers and ensure the long-term viability of our health care system," says Dr. Blumenthal.

Keeping a SHARP Focus on Innovation

David Blumenthal, M.D., M.P.P. National Coordinator for Health Information Technology U.S. Department of Health & Human Services

Today the Obama administration announced the availability of $60 million in Recovery Act funds to support the development of the Strategic Health IT Advanced Research Projects (SHARP) program. SHARP awards will fund research focused on identifying technology solutions to address well-documented problems impeding broad adoption of health information technology (health IT). By helping to overcome key challenges, the research will also accelerate progress towards achieving nationwide meaningful use of health IT.

As we continue this unprecedented effort towards meaningful use and seamless, secure information exchange, we also must acknowledge that there remains a gap between the promise of health IT and the realization of its full benefits. To achieve the goal of a transformed health care delivery system, it’s critical that we close this gap by enabling a robust research infrastructure that can focus on areas where “breakthrough” advances are needed to help clear obstacles to adoption. Under the SHARP program, four awardees will receive funding to develop multidisciplinary research projects that will identify such breakthrough solutions.

SHARP program awardees will create research programs that draw from many areas of expertise. They will focus on issues of central interest to all health IT stakeholders, fostering considerable discussion and debate. If for example, SHARP research helped identify new methods to create tools that will, through their incorporation into deployed technology, enhance data security, then public trust in the electronic maintenance and exchange of health information would be reinforced and strengthened – which would in turn help encourage broader adoption.

Areas requiring this innovative research approach that will be tackled by the SHARP awardees include the security of health IT, patient-centered cognitive support, application and network platform architectures, and the secondary use of EHR data as a way of measuring and improving quality of care.

Another important aspect of the SHARP program is that the research projects will bring together key stakeholders – researchers, patient groups, health care providers, and others – to work with one another to transform health IT research into applications. This collaborative approach allows us to consider the many voices of health IT stakeholders, and work together towards common goals. With our eyes on the vision of patient-centered, quality health care we can focus research on innovative, pragmatic, and realistic solutions, which can then be implemented across the nation.

I truly look forward to seeing the innovative research that emerges from this program. I know that this research will provide critical insights that will bring us closer every day to a better, more efficient health care delivery system, enabled by health IT and empowered by the seamless and secure exchange of electronic health information.
