Aim Statement ACCESS IMPROVEMENT: – Ultimate goal of increasing patient visits – Route to improvement is through streamlining/shortening the patient visit AIM STATEMENT: “ For primary care patients, decrease total patient time at clinic visits (including registration, clinician time, immunizations, and labs) to <90 minutes per patient by January 1, 2012.”
Changes tested or implemented this Quarter PDSA summary and learning points – Huddles need more clinician buy in and MEA supervision/training leadership change/clearer messaging – MEA checklist not completed by MEAs/not valued by clinicians despite group consensus on implementation more training and supervision for MEAS, clearer expectations for clinicians and MEAs – Staff satisfaction survey staff generally happy but different sense of purpose than clinicians work on teambuilding repeat survey in June 2011 – QI training team workshop QI projects for MEAs, refined clinic-wide QI plan (SFHP PIP in summer 2011) REAL TIME CHANGES ON A DAILY BASIS IN THE CHC!
Challenges Morale and buy-in – Role clarification Lack of leadership skills within primary care nursing team – Lack of larger vision “It’s just more work for us.” “That’s not my job.” – Resistance to change “That’s not my job.” Data – Measures difficult to determine – Collection Where is it? How do we do it? – Analysis Time
Action Plan Sustainable data collection – Measuring cycle time for all primary care – No show rates – Monitoring performance of MEA team in patient assessments – i2i and IT services for ongoing measurement Improve morale and buy-in – Customer service training – Create photo board for all staff – Incentives for improved performance – Examples of successful implementation (visits to other model clinics) – Repeat satisfaction survey Longer term “access”-related goals – Revise provider appointment templates – Revise immunization forms – Decrease no-show rates
