Health systems in Maine have contributed to some of the highest vaccination rates in the nation. Around 81% of Mainers are fully vaccinated; 58% of those fully vaccinated have received their first booster dose. More Maine people have received their COVID-19 vaccine from MaineHealth than any other entity - nearly 600,000 doses. In addition, the volume of COVID-19 testing processed through NorDx laboratory (a related organization) is significant-over 1,250,000 COVID-19 tests to date, having reached the one millionth test mark in January of 2022.-Age-Friendly Health System Work Expands Considering Maine and New Hampshire demographics, MaineHealth has been a natural fit for the age-friendly health system model. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Maine is the oldest state in the nation, with roughly one in five Mainers over the age of 65 (New Hampshire's population is approximately 19 percent 65 and over). That number is expected to increase to one in four by 2030. An age-friendly health system adopts four elements of high-quality care, known as the "4Ms." The "4Ms" act as a framework used to focus on the needs of older adults: What Matters, Mentation, Medication, and Mobility. By incorporating a "What Matters" conversation, an evidence-based practice for providing care, care team members can better understand their patient population. Within the past year, a mechanism for documenting "What Matters" was built into the electronic medical record so that the information travels with the patient, no matter which provider accesses their record.
ResearchResearch is a core component of the MaineHealth mission and essential to the delivery of quality health care in the future. MaineHealth Institute for Research (MHIR) is the research arm of MaineHealth. MHIR supports and encourages a broad spectrum of research, ranging from basic laboratory-based research to translational and clinical research, to health services, population, and community-engaged research. The institute has four scientific centers: the Center for Applied Science & Technology, the Center for Clinical & Translational Science, (Continued on Schedule O)(Continued from page 2 of 990, Line 4c) the Center for Interdisciplinary Population & Health Research, and the Center for Molecular Medicine. In 2022, MHIR had more than $20.6M in grant funding and received 39 new grants, allowing the institute's clinical and biomedical researchers to contribute to nationally and internationally recognized scientific research. In addition, over 250 clinical trial studies took place with the top areas of focus in Oncology, Neurology, and Cardiology. Notably in 2022, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) awarded a five-year, $20 million research grant to MHIR and its partnering institutions, the University of Vermont and the University of Southern Maine, to continue and expand the transformative work of the Northern New England Clinical and Translational Research Network in improving community health through biomedical research in rural New England. In 2022, MHIR investigators and physician scientists continued to address COVID with a number of important research efforts including increasing access to COVID testing in high-risk populations in community settings and the study of the long-term effects of COVID investigators from MHIR are among those at more than 70 institutions across the country participating in the "NIH Researching COVID to Enhance Recovery (RECOVER) Initiative" to better understand long-term effects of COVID. Other 2022 highlights included: 275 scientific articles were published and over 3,751 biospecimens were distributed by the institute's BioBank Tissue Repository.
Teaching (Medical and Interprofessional Education Program)Educating and training healthcare professionals is vital to MaineHealth's mission. This is a critical component to the delivery of quality health care. To that end we have established a number of robust training and education programs. MaineHealth's flagship hospital, Maine Medical Center (MMC), has a long history of educating medical students, residents, interprofessional providers and faculty. (Continued on Schedule O)(Continued from page 2 of 990, Line 4b) The Department of Medical Education, with a staff of 80, manages 16 residency programs, 3 rural residency tracks and 14 fellowships, all approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, as well as a residency program in dentistry and a critical care advanced practice provider residency. Currently there are approximately 300 physician residents and fellows. Historically, about one-third of MMC's residency graduates have stayed in Maine to practice. Our graduates also go on to outstanding fellowship programs. Established in 2008, the Tufts University School of Medicine - Maine Medical Center Program, known as the "Maine Track," offers a unique and innovative curriculum, exposing students to rural practices and training in a major tertiary medical center. There are 40 matriculants in each TUSM class dedicated to Maine Track. Much of the curriculum is based in Maine, particularly in the 2nd through 4th years of medical school. Maine Medical Center developed a unique 9-month Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship offered at MMC and in 10 community hospital sites. 63 graduates of the Maine Track who have completed their residency programs are working in Maine as of 2022. Additionally clerkship students from the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine rotate through Maine Medical Center annually. The Hannaford Center for Safety, Innovation and Simulation is a state-of-the-art 15,000 square-foot training center that utilizes the latest in human medical simulator technology to take medical education to the highest level possible. The center provides learners and faculty with extremely realistic scenarios, allowing them to gain significant skills while greatly reducing patient risk. Maine Medical Center is the flagship provider for Continuing Interprofessional Development (CIPD) in Maine, and is now jointly accredited through the major national accrediting bodies including medicine, nursing, pharmacy, and others. The goal of the CIPD program is to provide continuing education of the highest quality for all professions within the state. Launched in 2015, the MMC Institute for Teaching Excellence (MITE) provides faculty development opportunities (e.g., Scholars program) for educators. In addition to offering certificate programs, support for medical education research and a wide variety of high-quality educational opportunities, the Institute hosts a varied menu of high-quality faculty development. By promoting academic medicine excellence at all levels of interprofessional education, the Institute and the MITE Academy (component of MITE) seek to support, nurture and promote all clinician educators in the State of Maine. Significant FY 2022 accomplishments include: -Third year of teaching the second year curriculum of the Maine Track years in Maine -Thirteen of the TUSM-Maine Track medical students who graduated in 2022 remained in Maine to complete their residency-Fourth year of the Interprofessional Partnership to Advance Patient Care and Education (iPACE) grant from the American Medical Association. Efforts have spread to multiple MMC inpatient units, an outpatient practice, and a rural site and are now planned to be extended across the health system over the coming years.-In CloudCME, 511 Joint Accredited Interprofessional Education activities were conducted in FY22. -The Advanced Practice Provider Critical Care Residency program (APP) was initiated in October 2021 and the first class of two APPs graduated in 2022, of which one joined MaineHealth. -The first two rural Psychiatry track residents began in July 2022. -Received a grant from the Association of American Medical Colleges and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to develop the project, Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Learning: A Novel Training Tool for Addressing COVID-19 Health Misinformation in which training videos are developed to support clinicians in learning how to discuss misinformation with patients and colleagues.
