Highlights: June MAC Meeting

June 16, 2016 by School of Medicine Webmaster

Below are highlights from the Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) meeting held on Tuesday, June 14, 2016:

Patient Friendly Access (PFA)

  • PFA is an initiative to make it easy for patients to schedule one or more outpatient visits on the same day. The goal is to develop a welcoming, efficient, and effective patient and referring provider access experience for outpatient clinical care.
  • Dean David Wilkes apologized for not communicating to faculty better about this initiative and for not getting faculty involved from the beginning.
  • The Deans Office has heard that there are concerns, and therefore is now taking time to get faculty feedback and input.
  • For more information on PFA, visit http://www.medicalcenter.virginia.edu/intranet/pfa/ or contact RPFA@hscmail.mcc.virginia.edu.
