Outreach

Ambulatory 2019-2020

All categorical residents have been assigned a half-day to accomplish proactive outreach during their Ambulatory week.  Each week there will be a specific assigned Temple University Practice Quality Indicator that the resident will be asked to contact their eligible patients in order to have them complete (examples below).

  • Lipid Screening
  • HTN management
  • Colonoscopy
  • Breast Cancer Screening
  • Osteoporosis Screening
  • DM management: A1c, eye, foot exams
  • Statin use in DM
  • Statin use in CAD

The resident may use my chart function of EPIC, US mail, or telephone to contact their patients and work to get them in for their needed care.  For each week the resident will document using the Outreach/Panel management Tracker 2019-2020 document to log their progress.

Throughout the year, the residents will be required to complete the following journal assignments in new innovations to reinforce the educational goals of the activity and provide documentation the resident’s portfolio that they been 1) monitoring their practice with the goal of improvement and 2) learning with the goal of improvement via performance audit.
