Idea Board


NAME(S): Staff   Area: Interventional Radiology

What is the problem/waste? Staff felt that they wanted more opportunities to learn about Interventional Radiology

Idea: Monthly Educational Sessions - Approval from Chief MDs to have a once-a-month late start (9a first case) so that staff members (RTs, RNs, and anyone else available and interested) can come to an Education Session.
The sessions will be put on by vendors (i.e. Stryker presentation done today on stroke treatment, providing CEUs), as well as local staff giving sessions (i.e. on Venous Sampling or less-common procedures).

Date the idea was implemented: 8/2/2017

What is the problem/waste?  Referring medical staff having difficulty with new / incorrect exam code list for ordering , exams being ordered wrong or delayed

Idea: Wrote up a  "cheat sheet" with trimmed but complete list of exams with matching most common diagnoses associated.  Sent this to out-patient services until final more accurate edits are completed.  Seems to be helping!
