The Indiana University Student Outreach Clinic Nexus Innovations Interprofessional Team Intervention Project
The main objective of the study is to improve quality of care, increase interprofessional collaboration, and increase efficiency in utilization of resources at the IU Student Outreach Clinic by: 1) increasing knowledge about roles, scope of practice, and training of the professions at the clinic and 2) assembling an interprofessional team to screen patients on admission to the clinic and make recommendations for collaboration across professions.
Project Outcomes with Triple Aim Outcomes:
1. Improved population health-increased percentage of appropriate referrals for the population of patients served at the IU-SOC
2. Improved provider satisfaction with quality of care and with the number and nature of interprofessional collaboration.
3. Reduction in per capita cost: Improved value as indicated by reduction of visits needed to address health care needs.
