Clinical Trial of Expanded Advance Care Planning to Address Regimen Intensity in Older Patients at High Risk for Treatment-Induced Hypoglycemia

The goal of this study is to apply the patient-centered advance care planning paradigm of values elicitation and decision-making and communication preparation to hypoglycemia-related adverse outcomes in vulnerable older patients with type 2 diabetes. This will involve a randomized clinical trial comparing a web-based diabetes-specific advanced care planning tool vs. usual care among patients 75 years and older at increased risk for hypoglycemic events.

Impact of the COVID Pandemic on KP Members with Complex Medical and Social Needs

The COVID epidemic has exposed the fragility of the social network that supports our most complex and vulnerable members. We have established an interdisciplinary team of researchers, clinicians, and operational leaders at KPNC, KPCO, KPWA to study socially determined barriers to care among adult members with complex medical & social needs. Among these patients, we propose to: 1) examine the role of self-reported barriers (e.g. financial need, housing instability, social isolation, frailty) on risk of COVID infection; 2) among COVID infected patients, examine the role of these barriers on disease severity; 3) examine the impact of social distancing & KP care re-organization on chronic medical & mental health care, and 4) re-contact previously interviewed complex patients to investigate in the impact of social distancing & KP care re-organization on their health and care. Results will help inform new care strategies for our most vulnerable members with complex medical and social needs.

Reducing Treatment Risk in Older Patients with Diabetes: Comparative Effectiveness of Academic Detailing with and without Pre-Visit Patient Preparation

This pragmatic, randomized clinical trial will compare the effect of primary care physician academic detailing with or without patient pre-visit preparation on insulin de-prescribing rates among older patients with type 2 diabetes at high risk for insulin-related hypoglycemia. We will also examine changes in patient-reported diabetes distress, decisional confidence, and perceived quality of care. In a subset of visits from both study arms, we will also compare the content and quality of patient-provider conversations through analysis of visit audio-recordings.

Care System Analytics to Support Primary Care Patients with Complex Medical and Social Needs

This study will leverage the rich electronic data sources within Kaiser Permanente to create pragmatic tools for improving health and equity among primary care patients with the highest medical and social needs. Aim 1: Use advanced analytic methods to predict actionable nonmedical barriers to care experienced by patients with multiple chronic conditions; Aim 2: Implement a dashboard linked to the electronic health record that will enable care providers to sort and manage registries of patients with multiple chronic conditions; and Aim 3: Pilot the use and implementation of this dashboard tool in 3 geographically distinct, high-need communities served by three Kaiser Permanente regions (Northern California, Washington, Colorado).

CORAL Meaningful Outcomes & Missed Opportunities

​A relatively small proportion of patients with complex needs represent a major source of cost and utilization. The fundamental principle that distinguishes complex needs patients from other high-cost patients with well-defined medical issues is that "complex needs" is a highly heterogeneous category with poorly defined inclusion criteria and treatment goals. To move this field forward, this 18-month, inter-regional research project aims to better define actionable subgroups of patients with complex care needs. A generalizable typology of distinct subgroups of patients with complex care needs will be created using clinical and patient-reported data and care outcomes across three Kaiser Permanente delivery systems (Kaiser Permanente Northern California, Kaiser Permanente of Colorado, and Kaiser Permanente Washington). Important unmet care needs will be identified for patients within each of the main subgroups, and a novel set of meaningful outcomes that reflect complex patients’ clinical and personal needs will be elicited using interviews and focused chart reviews.

T32 Training Program in Diabetes Translational Research

Diabetes remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality, and it is a significant burden to the U.S. health care system, patients, and their families. The knowledge and skills necessary to overcome the final translational block from evidence into practice require unique training in the area of delivery science, which includes health services research, translational research, and dissemination and implementation methods. To meet this need, the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research has created the Diabetes Delivery Science Training Program. This new program will directly address the need to augment the current research workforce by focusing on the skills needed to identify and overcome barriers to effective diabetes care within existing large-scale health care delivery systems. Two post-doctoral scientists will be enrolled per year for a two-year training program.

Pre-Visit Prioritization for Complex Primary Care Patients with Diabetes

Patients with type 2 diabetes are increasingly living with multiple concurrent conditions and complicated medical regimens. For these patients, diabetes management decisions and treatment goals must be addressed within the larger context of other competing health concerns. In parallel, clinical advances have led to a substantial increase in the number of tasks that primary care providers must perform during each visit. These twin trends present a formidable challenge to effective diabetes primary care. This study addresses the hypothesis that among complex patients not meeting diabetes management goals, an approach to help patients explicitly prioritize all health issues (both related and unrelated to diabetes) prior to each primary care visit will result in more effective diabetes management over time. To test this hypothesis, the project will involve design, implementation, and evaluation of a web-based tool linked to electronic health records that will enable complex patients to easily define care priorities from an inclusive list.

Mentored Research to Improve Care for Complex Patients With Diabetes

K24 Midcareer Investigator Awards in Patient-Oriented Research are designed to support established scientists with a track record of mentoring to devote time to research mentorship for junior investigators. The overarching goal of this K24 award is to develop innovative approaches to improving the care of complex patients with type 2 diabetes, including the growing number of Latinos with diabetes, by developing new care models and innovative tools to support patients and providers in achieving more effective diabetes primary care. Specific research aims are to: 1) Examine the relationship between patient visit priorities and PCP care plans; 2) Adapt pre-visit prioritization for Low-English-Proficiency and Spanish-speaking Latinos; and 3) Learn how to effectively implement alternative health IT platforms such as smart phones, interactive voice response, and other novel modalities for pre-visit prioritization. The project will provide ample mentored research opportunities for highly promising mentees with an interest and passion for patient-oriented research to improve the care of patients with type 2 diabetes.

Multi-Component Behavioral Intervention for Complex Patients with CVD Risk

Disease management programs have had success in CVD risk factor control among uncomplicated patients but often fall short in more complex patients. New approaches are needed to address the multiple barriers faced by CVD patients with complex medical and behavioral comorbidity. We propose to develop and implement a multi-component intervention that includes patient activation, patient engagement, broad brush screening for undiagnosed behavioral health conditions, and creation of personal care plans tailored to each individuals unique set of barriers, motivators, and clinical goals. By focusing on core health skills and cross-cutting barriers to care in high risk patients not meeting clinical treatment goals, we are designing this intervention to be widely generalizable to all patients with multiple complex chronic conditions. We will conduct a randomized clinical trial of the intervention vs. usual care to examine effectiveness on proximal outcomes and CVD risk factor control.

Aligning the Visit Priorities of Complex Patients and their Primary Care Providers

The primary care visit is a key opportunity for catalyzing changes in care for complex patients with multiple heath issues. With too many items to address in the time allotted, however, the decision of which items to focus on requires prioritization. Prior studies have shown that: 1) patients and providers often have discordant priorities, 2) this discordance is associated with less effective care (e.g., poor adherence, lack of medication intensification), and, conversely, 3) collaborative interactions with informed, activated patients and prepared providers lead to better clinical outcomes. We hypothesize that a systematic approach that enables patients and providers to align visit priorities will result in more effective, patient-centered care because explicitly negotiated management decisions that address both patient and provider priorities are more likely to be adopted. This project will include focus groups and a pilot clinical trial examining impact on patient-centered outcomes.
