Delays for $1 million CHIME national patient ID challenge

When it was first conceived, an ambitious project to find a technology answer to one of health IT’s most vexing problems, national patient ID, was introduced with fanfare as a crowdfunded endeavor.

The undertaking was launched in January 2016 by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), which chose the HeroX platform for a global crowdsourcing campaign that was to raise $1 million and crown a winning patient ID technology developer 13 months later.

The issue has drawn a lot of attention because of the health IT industry’s consensus that a unique patient ID would dramatically improve patient safety. However, Congress has perennially blocked any regulation to promote national patient ID.

Keith Fraidenburg, CHIMEKeith Fraidenburg

As for the CHIME challenge, it is more than five months behind the original schedule and hasn’t raised any outside money, through HeroX or elsewhere.

Even so, the project appears to have wide support in health IT, but some critics as well.

The health IT CIO group said it has always been prepared to self-finance the national patient ID prize, drawing on membership donations, major gifts and grants and reserve funds — as well as any contributions from members.

“The CHIME board of trustees from the very beginning saw this as important enough to our members and to the industry, that if it was necessary, the CHIME organization would fully fund the million-dollar prize,” said Keith Fraidenburg, CHIME executive vice president and COO. “It was guaranteed at the start.”

So far, however, the HeroX page hasn’t drawn any contributions, whether from individuals, CHIME healthcare organization provider members or CIOs or member companies, Fraidenburg acknowledged.

If it was necessary, the CHIME organization would fully fund the million-dollar prize.

“The funds are available,” Fraidenburg said. “That being said, we are in active discussions with potential sponsors. We’re in the final stage of the challenge. We’re getting close, and that’s very exciting for potential sponsors.”

Fraidenburg said the newly created CHIME Healthcare Innovation Trust is technically sponsoring the contest and will be the vehicle for funding the cash prize.

The nonprofit organization had revenues of $6.7 million and expenses of $6.4 million in 2015, according to CHIME’s most recent public tax filing. The group also had net assets of $7.8 million that year, according to its IRS Form 990 filing.

Vendor bemoans biometric proposals

Not everyone in health IT is supportive of the CHIME challenge.

Perhaps surprisingly, Andy Aroditis, founder and CEO of NextGate, a patient matching software vendor, is a critic.

Aroditis complained that rather than plunging into a contest, CHIME should have convened existing patient matching vendors, like his company, to collaborate on a project to advance the technology.

“Instead they try to do these gimmicks,” Aroditis said. “I don’t even know if the CIOs and vendors who are paying in all these contributions to CHIME know where their money is going.”

Aroditis also noted that three of the four finalists’ proposals are based on biometric technology. That approach doesn’t appear fully suited to the objective of creating a national patient ID system because all healthcare organizations would need to be equipped with biometric software and, in many cases, hardware.

The fourth finalist’s submission is built around blockchain, a still largely speculative technology.

Fraidenburg responded to one of Aroditis’ arguments by noting that CHIME is focused on a national patient identification system rather than what he said was the narrower focus of patient matching technology available from vendors today.

“I can understand the distinction between a patient ID and patient matching, but yes, they are certainly related and go hand in hand,” Aroditis said.

Two CIOs approve CHIME’s approach

In contrast to Aroditis’ view, two noted health IT CIOs who are CHIME members praised the project.

“What CHIME is doing is actually extraordinary,” said John Halamka, M.D., CIO of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. “It’s bringing together in a very open and transparent way a variety of stakeholders to look at policy and technology options.”

“It’s the best example of how you accelerate in the industry,” Halamka added.

David Chou, vice president and chief information and digital officer at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., said the patient ID challenge is appropriate for CHIME because the group’s members are health IT leaders working toward interoperability.

“I commend CHIME for taking the initiative,” Chou said. “It is needed to have a unique patient identifier, and we have been struggling for a long time to make this happen.”

Meanwhile, CHIME officials said the process of picking a winner from four finalists could stretch past the November 2017 deadline.

In May, CHIME chose four finalists from among 113 submissions. The group hopes to have a winner by the time of its annual fall conference in San Antonio in November, but the competition is in the prototype testing stage now, Fraidenburg said.

Even after a winner emerges, there will likely still be much work left to do to truly bring about a national patient ID system, Fraidenburg said.

“Let’s say we are able to announce a winning solution this November,” Fraidenburg said. “In order to move that solution with scalability, adoption, there’s a long way to go yet.

“This is a very complicated issue,” he said.

For Sale – Late 2014 Mac Mini (2.6GHz I5, 8GB, 500GB SSD)

Selling off as it’s not getting much use other than as a Plex server these days, which is a bit of a waste so it needs to go to a better home.

I bought this from John Lewis in Feb last year, and has the 3 year JL warranty, which will last until Feb 2019. I have the PoP which is all that’s needed to redeem this, should anything go wrong.

This is the middle level Mac Mini, and has had the drive upgrade to a 500GB Samsung SSD (EVO 850).

Any questions, let me know. Pics:

Latest Xbox Update Releases to Insiders Starting Today

It’s an exciting day at Team Xbox as Xbox Insiders in the Alpha Ring will get a first look at the latest Xbox update. This release is the next major update for gaming on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC, and is designed to make the Xbox gaming experience more fun, personalized, and social than ever. We’ve heard feedback from our fans that they want the ability to customize Home the way they want. This new experience on Xbox One gives gamers more choice and delivers fun faster. Updates to Home, Guide and Community are available today, with updates to Avatars, Game Hubs, Profiles and more coming this fall. Windows 10 PCs will also receive updates to the Game bar and Gaming settings menu. Here’s a detailed look at some of the new features that will arrive for Xbox Insiders starting today and continuing throughout the next few months:

.GIF of new content blocks on Xbox One

Customize Your Home: The first thing Insiders will notice is the new Home on Xbox One. This update is all about personalization; we’re putting the control in your hands, so that you can decide what to see when you turn on your console. The new look and feel is part of a design system called Microsoft Fluent Design; the look, feel, and movement of the dashboard has been updated to focus on speed, customization and expression—for you. Now, customize your Home screen to be uniquely yours, and view all the things you love at-a-glance. Have a favorite game or friend? Add them to Home!  Select one, press the Menu button on your controller, and select “Add to Home.”  This now creates an entire block of content that can be moved up or down—or removed altogether, should your interests or habits change. These blocks will evolve over time based on the things you like to do. For example, adding a game to your Home screen may pull in an Activity Feed post from the developer, show when your friends are playing that game online, suggest your next Achievement, and provide a quick shortcut to the Game Hub for that title. We’ll be adding additional types of content blocks in the coming months, so stay tuned for more. The team is always pushing to make the Xbox experience faster and faster. In this release, we’ve eliminated the wait between Home, Social, and My Games and Apps by consolidating them into one dashboard experience. No more splash screens means you get to fun even faster.

UI of New Xbox One Guide

Effortless Guide Navigation: With this update, it’s faster than ever to switch between tabs in the guide so you can join friends, broadcast, switch between apps, and get back Home. New tab flyouts make it easier to see more content quickly, too. The new Guide layout quickly gets you to the stuff you care about, so you never miss a moment. It’s now even easier to switch between apps or get back to Home, and the new layout will enable you to quickly jump to different tabs using the left thumbstick, d-pad, or bumpers on your controller. Sign-in, Achievements, multiplayer (including parties, Looking for Group, and tournaments), People, Home and recent, messages, broadcasts and captures, and a new action center (including settings) each have their own tab in the new Guide.

.GIF of Community UI on Xbox One

A More Immersive Community: Staying connected with Friends and Clubs is now better than ever. The community section has an entirely new Activity Feed layout, showing more content at-a-glance.  When looking at feed items in detail, they are presented in an immersive, full-screen view—sharing the experience just as it was captured.  Reading comments is now much easier since the comment window can be expanded to fill the screen. You’ll now be able to skim the feed quickly or lean back on the couch and walk through it in detail – it’s entirely up to you. This makes it easier than ever to stay current with the games and friends you care about. Game Hubs, Profiles, and Clubs are also refreshed to make them more dynamic and engaging than ever before.  We’re also making Improvements to Club discovery, to quickly display which Clubs you’re already a part of, and easily discover new Clubs to join.  There will also be new titles that will be coming to Arena over the next few months, soon offering even more options for tournaments powered by Xbox Live.

Game bar on Windows 10

Game Bar Gets Even Better: On Windows 10, we’re making it easier than ever to enable or disable Game Mode on a per-game basis by putting a switch directly in the Game bar. Mixer broadcasting with the Game bar will now give you more choices on the audio you broadcast; a new settings option will let you choose to broadcast game-only audio, or system-wide audio.  We’ve also added a new Xbox Live Network Troubleshooting option to the Settings menu in Windows 10, which will help you track down connectivity issues and optimize your online multiplayer experience.

This is just the beginning of some major updates arriving for Xbox gamers later this year.  We’ll be introducing plenty of new features in the coming months across Xbox One, Windows 10 PC, Mixer, and mobile devices designed to make your gaming experiences all about you. As always, we owe some big thanks for all the fan feedback we receive and review from gamers everywhere, as well as to the invaluable members of our Xbox Insider Program for all the feedback they provide regularly. We’ll be sharing more when the update releases to more fans later this year. The team has worked hard, and we hope you enjoy these latest updates to your Xbox One experience! And of course, don’t forget to tell us what you think.
