9 Department of Graduate Medical Education (GME) Effectiveness Research A sample of 300 Patients were interviewed prior to Teamcard Distribution and Implementation by GME and Process Excellence Staff

10 Department of Graduate Medical Education (GME) Data Sheet: Teamcard Chief Residents’ Project Data # PRE POST Age: Gender: Dx of Cognitive Impairment: YES No Is yes, DSM Dx: ______________ Do you know the name of your primary resident physician? YES No __________________________________ (Name Given) Additional Comments:

11 Department of Graduate Medical Education (GME) What did our PRE-Initiative Survey Show? 98% of the patients interviewed did not know the name of their resident physician. Many did however know their attendings’ names. Many patients told us they thought it was a “great idea” …I can take home with me and it will help me remember my physicians’ names….. nurses need these, too

12 Department of Graduate Medical Education (GME) Chief Residents QI Project “Teamcards” Goals – To improve communication with patients – To better identify the care team – To improve patient engagement – To better connect with patients

15 Department of Graduate Medical Education (GME) ACGME Requires ( IV.A.5.e) Interpersonal and Communication –Residents must demonstrate interpersonal and communication skills that result in the effective exchange of information and collaboration with patients, their families, and health professionals. –Residents are expected to: communicate effectively with patients, families, and the public, as appropriate, across a broad range of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds;

16 Department of Graduate Medical Education (GME) Teamcards Implementation and Training GME Announced: All residents/fellows (including departing house staff) must take the Teamcards/C-I-CARE (3 minute) module on Healthstream before June 1, 2011 https://www.healthstream.com/HLC/Login/Login.aspx?organizationI D=6a27bcaa-71bd-db11-bf7b d6b5c1&bhcp=0 We required 90% compliance with course completion by ALL house staff to qualify for 1% salary incentive in late June D-E-M-O

18 Department of Graduate Medical Education (GME) What in it for the residents? * INCENTIVE BONUS*

19 Department of Graduate Medical Education (GME) And when will the residents see the $$$? Last paycheck in June or their final paycheck if they are graduating this year! GME is keeping the residents updated on the progress toward the goal of 90% compliance with the training.

20 Department of Graduate Medical Education (GME) Obstacles We Encountered The great LOGO debate… How many pixels are required for a good photo? Aren’t the residents always available for a professional photographer? Can’t visiting residents get their pictures taken, too and get cards? Are visiting residents like community physicians? Once the initiative took off, it was no longer the Chief Residents’ Project Faculty Teamcards, too

21 Department of Graduate Medical Education (GME) Even our Faculty Wanted Teamcards
