3 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Barnes-Jewish Hospital, a member of BJC HealthCare, is a 1,315-bed, academic medical center located in the city of St. Louis,. Situated on Washington University Medical Campus, Barnes-Jewish Hospital provides inpatient, outpatient, emergency/trauma and ambulatory clinic services. Barnes-Jewish Hospital was created by the 1996 merger of Barnes Hospital and The Jewish Hospital of St. Louis. What began more than 100 years ago as two separate hospitals has evolved into a nationally recognized medical center delivering high quality health care services to patients across the St. Louis region. Barnes- Jewish Hospital has also established effective partnerships towards the goals of improving the health of the community. (See Appendix A for more information about Barnes-Jewish Hospital) Like all nonprofit hospitals, Barnes-Jewish Hospital is required by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) to conduct a community health needs assessment (CHNA) and create an implementation plan every three years. Barnes-Jewish Hospital completed its first CHNA and implementation plan on Dec. 31, The report was posted to the hospital s website to ensure easy access to the public. As part of the CHNA process, each hospital is required to define its community. Barnes-Jewish Hospital defined its community as St. Louis City. Once the community is defined, input must be solicited from those who represent the broad interests of the community served by the hospital, as well as those who have special knowledge and expertise in the area of public health. Barnes-Jewish Hospital conducted its 2016 assessment in two phases. The first phase consisted of a focus group discussion with key leaders and stakeholders representing the community. This group reviewed the primary data and community health need findings from 2013 and discussed changes that had occurred since Additionally, the focus group reviewed gaps in meeting needs, as well as identified potential community organizations for Barnes-Jewish Hospital to collaborate with in addressing needs. During phase two, findings from the focus group meeting were reviewed and analyzed by a hospital internal work group of clinical and non-clinical staff. Using multiple sources, including but not limited to Healthy Communities Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a secondary data analysis was conducted to further assess the identified needs. This data analysis identified some unique health disparities and trends evident in St. Louis City when compared against data for the state and country. At the conclusion of the comprehensive assessment process, Barnes-Jewish Hospital identified four health needs where focus is most needed to improve the health of the community it serves: 1) Access to Services; 2) Healthy Lifestyles: Obesity; 3) Mental and Behavioral Health: Substance Abuse; and 4) Public Safety: Violence. The analysis and conclusions were presented, reviewed and approved by the Barnes-Jewish Hospital board of directors. 3

4 COMMUNITY DESCRIPTION GEOGRAPHY Barnes-Jewish Hospital is the largest of the 15 BJC HealthCare hospitals that comprise the system. BJC HealthCare hospitals serve urban, suburban and rural community locations primarily in the greater St. Louis, southern Illinois and mid- regions. Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children s Hospital are the two BJC HealthCare hospitals located in St. Louis City. Barnes-Jewish Hospital is the largest hospital in. Seventy-five percent of the hospital s patients come from the hospital s primary service area, including eight counties in and eight counties in Illinois. The remaining 25 percent of patients come from the surrounding 250 miles of St. Louis. As the major safety net provider, Barnes-Jewish Hospital serves a larger community; however, for the purpose of the CHNA, Barnes-Jewish Hospital defined its community as St. Louis City. The shaded area in the map below represents St. Louis City. This area includes the following ZIP codes:

5 POPULATION TREND Population and demographic data is necessary to understand the health of the community and plan for future needs. In 2015, St. Louis City reported a total population estimate of 315,685 compared to the state population of 6,083,672. St. Louis City comprised five percent of s total population.

The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to increase the proportion of students who graduate high school within four years of their first enrollment in 9th grade to 82.4 percent. Individuals who do not finish high school are more likely than people who finish high school to lack the basic skills required to function in an increasingly complicated job market and society. Adults with limited education levels are more likely to be unemployed, on government assistance, or involved in crime. (Healthy Communities Institute). 10

For many, having a bachelor's degree is the key to a better life. The college experience develops cognitive skills, and allows learning about a wide range of subjects, people, cultures, and communities. Having a degree also opens up career opportunities in a variety of fields, and is often the prerequisite to a higher-paying job. It is estimated that college graduates earn about $1 million more per lifetime than their non-graduate peers. (Healthy Communities Institute). 13

16 PREVIOUS (2013) CHNA MEASUREMENT AND OUTCOMES RESULTS At the completion of the 2013 CHNA, Barnes-Jewish Hospital outlined goals for meeting eight broad categories of health needs in St. Louis City. Mission-core priorities were identified as aligning with the strategic priorities of the hospital in order to ensure dedicated resources. These included Health Literacy and Education and Chronic Conditions. The additional needs were included as supporting priorities: Access to Health Care; Behavioral Health; Financial Barriers; Safety from Violence; Lack of Service Coordination; and Training of Health Care Professionals. Rather than choosing one program on which to focus for each of the priorities in the implementation plan, Barnes-Jewish Hospital included all programs that were being conducted under each category. This was done with the hopes of highlighting all the work being done for the community, even though it was not necessary to do so. Due to the length of the listing of programs, the table below includes a selection of major programs under mission-core priorities that outlines the details results, goals and current status of these community health needs. Table 4A: 2013 CHNA Outcomes, Barnes-Jewish Hospital Health Literacy & Education Goals Provide health education and free screenings to 4,000 community members. Results of program impact evaluation will average a score of 4 on a scale of 1-5 Current Status 2014: 5,644 community members attended health education and screening events. The average impact score for these events was 4.25 out of : 7,870 community members attended health education and screening events. The average impact score for these events was 4.42 out of 5. Chronic Conditions Goals Provide free flu shots to a minimum of 30,000 individuals in the broader Barnes-Jewish Hospital community. Reserve a minimum of 15 percent of free flu shots to be provided in key underserved regions as identified by the CHNA. Current Status 2014: 24,415 free flu shots were administered to members of the community. Of the 22,954 participants who provided ZIP codes, 5,576 (24 percent) were from St. Louis City and another 2,968 (13 percent) were from underserved areas in north St. Louis County as defined by the Christian Hospital CHNA. 2015: The number of shots available to give to the community was reduced because it was determined that Barnes-Jewish Hospital would provide the best vaccine available. The hospital offered quadrivalent doses instead of trivalent doses at an approximate 50 percent cost increase. 19,236 free flu shots were administered to members of the community. Of the 18,904 participants who provided ZIP codes, 4,968 (26 percent) were from St. Louis City and another 2,286 (12 percent) were from underserved areas in north St. Louis County as defined by the Christian Hospital CHNA. 16

17 Table 4B: 2013 CHNA Outcomes, OASIS Chronic Disease & Diabetes Self-Management Goals Increase enrollment in self-management programs by 5% annually. After establishing a baseline, increase knowledge of blood pressure management terms and tools, and positive medication management behaviors by 5%. Current Status 2014: Participation in OASIS self-management programs was inflated due to participation in a research study. 2015: Participation decreased by 41% from 2014 due to the previously inflated participation rates. In 2015, efforts to recruit participants was more evenly distributed among health programs. Physical Activity and Functional Fitness Goals Increase physical activity participation and functional fitness in adults ages 60 and older by 10% annually. At least 50% of participants will see improvement in strength, flexibility, and balance and agility, as measured by the Senior Fitness Test (SFT). Current Status 2015: 1859 participants was 20% increase from % of participants improved aerobic endurance; 61% of participants improved agility and balance; 60% of participants improved lower body strength; 50% of participants improved upper body flexibility. Increased knowledge in blood pressure management increased by 19%. Increased knowledge in medication management increased by 24%. For the 2013 CHNA, Barnes-Jewish Hospital chose to address all needs identified by the stakeholders and confirmed by the secondary data. Regrettably, there was a lack of focus on particular areas. The team was not able to show outcomes in all areas selected. Therefore, the team decided to limit priorities and use resources wisely in order to show outcomes in Barnes-Jewish Hospital will continue with all the programs from the 2013 CHNA and focus the implementation plan on fewer priorities and demonstrate greater impact. 17

18 CONDUCTING THE 2016 CHNA PRIMARY DATA COLLECTION: FOCUS GROUP Barnes-Jewish Hospital conducted a focus group to solicit feedback from community stakeholders, public health experts and those with a special interest in the health needs of residents located in St. Louis City. Ten of 16 invited participants representing various St. Louis County organizations participated in the focus group (See Appendix B for Community Focus Group list). The focus group was held March 28, 2015, at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel with the following objectives identified: 1. Determine whether the needs identified in the 2013 CHNA remain the correct focus areas. 2. Explore whether any needs on the list should no longer be a priority. 3. Determine where gaps exist in the plan to address the prioritized needs. 4. Identify other potential organizations for collaboration. 5. Discuss how the community had changed since 2013 when Barnes-Jewish Hospital first identified these needs and whether there are new issues to consider. 6. Evaluate what issues the stakeholders anticipate becoming a greater concern in the future to consider now FOCUS GROUP SUMMARY A general consensus was reached that needs identified in the previous assessment should remain as focus areas for the hospital. A few participants suggested that mental health and behavioral health should be rated higher in priority due to the effect these concerns have on contributing to violence in the community (See Appendix C for complete Focus Group Report). Needs that Should Be Removed There was discussion about why training of health professionals and service coordination was not present in the revised list of needs. The law now requires that any prioritized need must be measured so as to determine the impact of any implementation tactics. These items were removed because there was a lack of measures associated with them. Stakeholders from the Regional Health Commission indicated that they have some metrics for Barnes-Jewish Hospital to consider around these needs. Gaps in Implementation Strategies Financial access to coverage continues to be an issue for St. Louis City residents who are low-income. There was much discussion around the role that technology could play in improving access to services. Other comments around access to services included care coordination. Discussion also took place regarding increasing health provider awareness of trauma (post-traumatic stress disorder) and how recognition can ultimately impact the treatment of chronic conditions along with behavioral health issues. Special Populations The homeless population was identified as one that may require additional consideration, particularly following discharge, as no appropriate place currently exists. Additionally, several points were made in regard to those who are deaf and blind. Potential Partner Organizations Barnes-Jewish Hospital was positively recognized for its numerous collaborative efforts with a variety of organizations on various levels. The hospital was also noted for its excellent work on emergency preparedness and responsiveness as well as for collaborating with the St. Louis Integrated Health 18

19 Network on placing referring coordinators in the facility. There was one suggestion to examine the relationships the hospital has with homeless providers in the city to identify additional ways to address the needs of the homeless upon discharge. Needs of Increasing Importance Safety from Violence Although violence was identified in the 2013 CHNA, with the events that occurred in Ferguson in 2014 and 2015, many see violence as an issue that will continue to exist in St. Louis City. Access: Coverage The lack of Medicaid expansion will continue to affect access, as well as disparities in access related to low-income populations. Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) There continues to be concern about STDs including gonorrhea as well as HIV/AIDs, especially within the African American community. Education is needed on these issues and information should be made available especially at community health fairs. Behavioral Health The spread of heroin and prescription drug abuse is a continued concern. Chronic Conditions Sickle cell anemia continues to be an issue among African Americans. RATING OF NEEDS Participants were given the list of the needs identified in the 2013 assessment and directed to re-rank them on a scale of 1 (low) to 5 (high), based on their perceived level of community concern and the ability of community organizations to address them collaboratively. The table on the following page shows the results of this ranking. Access to Coverage and Access to Services rated highest in terms of level of concern and ability to collaborate. Childbirth and Breastfeeding Education rated lowest on ability to collaborate and the level of concern. 19

21 SECONDARY DATA ANALYSES Based on the primary data reviewed by focus group members (see graph on previous page), key areas were identified by the internal workgroup (see internal workgroup process beginning on page 66) for secondary data analysis. These areas represent the most prevailing issues identified by the focus group. DATA SOURCES Healthy Communities Institute (HCI), an online community dashboard of health indicators for St. Louis County as well as the ability to evaluate and track the information against state and national data and Healthy People 2020 goals. This online dashboard of health indicators for St. Louis County evaluates and tracks information against state and national data and Healthy People 2020 goals. Sources of data include the National Cancer Institute, Environmental Protection Agency, US Census Bureau, US Department of Education, and other national, state, and regional sources. Healthy People 2020 provides science-based, 10-year national objectives for improving the health of all Americans. For three decades, Healthy People has established benchmarks and monitored progress over time in order to encourage collaborations across communities and sectors, empower individuals toward making informed health decisions and measure the impact of prevention activities. Hospital Industries Data Institute (HIDI, 2014) is a data source provides insight into the patterns and frequency of health care utilization in the hospital. Information for Community Assessment (MICA) is an online system that helps to prioritize diseases using publicly available data. The system also provides for the subjective input of experts to rank their perceived seriousness of each issue. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)/State Cancer Profiles is a web site that provide data, maps, and graphs to help guide and prioritize cancer control activities at the state and local levels. It is a collaboration of the National Cancer Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Department of Mental Health provides numerous comprehensive reports and statistics on mental health diseases, alcohol and drug abuse. In addition to the resources listed above, while not directly cited in this report, Barnes-Jewish Hospital utilized information from the following organizations during internal work group discussions: The Commonwealth Fund County Health Rankings and Roadmaps Kaiser Family Foundation Robert Wood Johnson Foundation 21

22 HEALTH NEEDS In order to provide a comprehensive analysis of disparities and trends, the most up-to-date secondary data was included on the following needs determined by the internal work group (see internal workgroup process beginning on page 74): Access: Coverage Access: Services Access: Transportation Cancer Diabetes Healthy Lifestyles Heart Health Maternal & Child Health Mental & Behavioral Health: Mental Illness Mental & Behavioral Health: Substance Abuse Public Safety: Violence Reproductive & Sexual Health Respiratory Disease: Asthma We acknowledge that, like most cities, tremendous variation exists in demographic and health characteristics between neighborhoods in the City of St. Louis. Some areas have multiple, high-risk factors clustered together. However, most data is not available at a more granular level than by county. For this reason, the analysis was completed comparing St. Louis City, and the U.S. When necessary during implementation, more specific data will be used when available. Following the secondary data analysis, a summary is provided that outlines observations noted in the disparities and trends for each of the above needs. (See page 73). 22

23 AGE ACCESS: COVERAGE Individuals without medical insurance are more likely to lack a traditional source of medical care, such as a Primary Care Provider (PCP), and are more likely to skip routine medical care due to costs, therefore, increasing the risk for serious and debilitating health conditions. Those who access health services are often burdened with large medical bills and out-of-pocket expenses. Increasing access to both routine medical care and medical insurance are vital steps in improving the health of the community. (Healthy Communities Institute). Chart 10: Adults with Health Insurance by Age, OVERALL PERCENT St. Louis City Source: Healthy Communities Institute The overall rate of adults in St. Louis City with health insurance in 2014 was 80.3 percent, 4.3 percent lower than. Of the total number of insured adults, the age group had the most adults with health insurance in St. Louis City; the age group and the age group had the second highest percentage of insured adults in St. Louis City. The age group had the lowest number of insured adults in St. Louis City. The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to increase the proportion of people with health insurance to 100 percent. 23

Males in St. Louis City also had a lower health insurance rate than the state. Chart 13: Adults with Health Insurance: Time Series St. Louis City Source: Healthy Communities Institute The graph above shows the rate of adults in St. Louis City with health insurance coverage from 2010 until A decline occurred in the city between 2010 and 2011 followed by an increase from 2012 to This increase could have resulted from the ACA, which mandates that all residents should be covered under some form of health insurance. The rate in was statistically the same from 2010 to 2013, with an increase noted in

26 The ability of an individual to access health services has a profound and direct effect on every aspect of health. Beginning in 2010, nearly 1 in 4 Americans lacked a primary care provider or health center to receive ongoing medical services. Table 5: Access to Health Care, St. Louis City vs. Health Indicators St. Louis City Adults with health insurance, percent of age 18-64, Children with health insurance, percent, Primary care providers rate / 100,000, Dentist rate / 100,000, Mental health providers rate / 100,000, Non-physician primary care provider rate / 100,000, Preventable hospital stays, discharges / 1,000 enrollees, Source: Healthy Communities Institute/County Health Ranking The rate of primary care providers and mental health providers was higher in the city than the rate of providers in the state. Further, the rate of non-physician primary care providers was more than double the rate in the city than in the state. However, the rate of dental providers was lower in the city than the rate of dentists in the state. 26

27 ACCESS: TRANSPORTATION Owning a car has a direct correlation with the ability to travel. Individuals with no car in the household make fewer than half the number of trips compared to those with a car and have limited access to essential local services such as supermarkets, post offices, doctors' offices and hospitals. Most households with above-average income own a car while only half of low-income households have a car. (Healthy Communities Institute).

28 CASES / 100,000 CASES / 100,000 POPULATION CANCER Cancer is a leading cause of death in the United States, with more than 100 different types of the disease. According to the National Cancer Institute, lung, colon and rectal, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancer lead in the greatest number of annual deaths.

30 The age-adjusted death rates of breast, lung and bronchus, prostate, pancreatic, colon and cervical cancer in the city were higher than the rates in the state and the country. The highest death rate of cancer in the city was reported in lung and bronchus cancer and prostate cancer. In, the highest death rate occurred in lung and bronchus cancer and breast cancer. According to Healthy Communities Institute: Breast Cancer Breast cancer is a leading cause of cancer death among women in the United States. According to the American Cancer Society, about 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer and about 1 in 36 women will die from breast cancer. Breast cancer is associated with increased age, hereditary factors, obesity and alcohol use. Since 1990, breast cancer death rates have declined progressively due to advancements in treatment and detection. The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to reduce the breast cancer death rate to 20.7 deaths per 100,000 females. Lung Cancer According to the American Lung Association, more people die from lung cancer annually than any other type of cancer, exceeding the total deaths caused by breast cancer, colorectal cancer, and prostate cancer combined. The greatest risk factor for lung cancer is duration and quantity of smoking. While the mortality rate due to lung cancer among men has reached a plateau, the mortality rate due to lung cancer among women continues to increase. African Americans have the highest risk of developing lung cancer. The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to reduce the lung cancer death rate to 45.5 deaths per 100,000 population. Prostate Cancer Prostate cancer is a leading cause of cancer death among men in the United States. According to the American Cancer Society, about 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. And about 1 in 36 will die from prostate cancer. The two greatest risk factors for prostate cancer are age and race, with men over the age of 65 and men of African descent possessing the highest incidence rates of prostate cancer in the U.S. The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to reduce the prostate cancer death rate to 21.8 deaths per 100,000 males. Colorectal Cancer Colorectal cancer cancer of the colon or rectum is a leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that if all adults aged 50 or older had regular screening tests for colon cancer, as many as 60 percent of the deaths from colorectal cancer could be prevented. While 90 percent of colorectal cancer cases occur in adults aged 50 or older, it is essential for individuals with risk factors (those with a family history of colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, or heavy alcohol use) to seek regular screening earlier. The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to reduce the colorectal cancer death rate to 14.5 deaths per 100,000 population. 30
