Best Practices in Access and Wait Times at Cincinnati Children’s
April 28, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Jana Bazzoli, Vice President of Clinical Affairs, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. An Institute of Medicine report shows that provider-focused approaches to scheduling and failure to appropriately use nurse practitioners and physician assistants are among the reasons timely access to care remains a problem. [Read “IOM: The doctor will see you TODAY should be standard”]. The report includes research on access and wait times at facilities from multiple specialties and geographic regions that have developed best practices on this issue, including Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Join Jana as she discusses learning how to increase access to subspecialty care in a setting where providers divide their time among patient care, research and teaching. Discover how variation in physician attendance and scheduling can impact access, and understand the measurement of supply and demand as they relate to patient access.
