Description

The drive for patient-centered, multidisciplinary care is being fueled by payment model changes. To create an optimal environment for this type of care, we have designed an ambulatory care facility that provides each patient access to their own room on check in, much like a hotel. We have also co-localized within the center the specialists dedicated to treating conditions limiting patient mobility and many of the support services required for rapid diagnosis and treatment. Demonstrating the benefit the center provides to patients and driving care integration across departments requires ready access to robust data and analytics. This session will discuss the structure of our center and the evolving information system backbone that supports its mission. The speakers will focus on the use of a real time location system (RTLS) on providing care, compare a patient visit at a conventional multispecialty clinic with our center and discuss ways forward on care improvement.

Dr. Hoover is a physician scientist. His science background was fostered at the University of California, Berkeley where he earned a BA in Molecular and Cell Biology with Honors. Subsequently in a combined degree program he completed a PhD in Biology and an MD from the University of California, Irvine College of Medicine. He completed his medical training in a diagnostic radiology residency and a clinical fellowship in Musculoskeletal Imaging at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. He was recruited to VCU Health in 2009 as a staff radiologist and professor, and was named Director of the Musculoskeletal Imaging and Intervention Section and Fellowship in 2011. In 2014 he was selected to be Director of Clinical Optimization for the Neuroscience, Orthopaedic and Wellness Center of VCU Health. In this role, he shared the responsibility of designing and building the human, IT and bricks and mortar infrastructure to support a multidisciplinary mission to get and keep people with many different medical challenges moving. In addition to his work at the Center, he is actively involved in multiple radiological societies, including the American College of Radiology, where is program chair for the Virginia Chapter Annual Meeting, and the Society of Skeletal Radiology. He is also active in service to VCU Health on multiple committees. He is actively involved in radiology and drug trial research related to the musculoskeletal system and is currently completing the editing of a textbook on musculoskeletal imaging to be published in 2018.
