Interprofessional Clinic Opens in Prince George's County
December 8, 2017
A University of Maryland, Baltimore-led clinic has begun helping patients who are discharged from the University of Maryland Prince George’s County Hospital Center to succeed in their transitions from hospital or the emergency department to home by addressing circumstances that could harm their health and lead to readmissions. The new Interprofessional Care Transitions Clinic (ICTC) in Cheverly, Maryland, is designed to expand access and continuity of care for Medicare, Medicaid, and newly insured patients who lack access to a primary care provider by addressing that gap after their discharge. To facilitate patients’ linkages to providers within the community, the ICTC combines the clinic and two UMB-managed resources: the Governor’s Wellmobile operated by the UM School of Nursing and the e-Health Center operated by the UM School of Pharmacy. The clinic is an interprofessional, team-based program that includes pharmacists, nurse practitioners, social workers, and lawyers.
