The Advanced Level Medical Support Assistant (MSA) position
serves as a Clinic Clerk and is a foundational role within the VHA Patient
Aligned Care Team (PACT) initiative. Patient care is delivered in a team based
model known as the teamlet. Members of the teamlet include the MSA, a
Registered Nurse Care Manager, a Licensed Practical Nurse/Licensed Vocational
Nurse and a Primary Care Provider. The teamlet provides the majority of the
healthcare needs for an assigned panel of patients. The teamlet works
collaboratively with other members of an expanded health care Primary Care Team
including pharmacists, social workers, dieticians, behavioral health staff,
etc. to provide a robust interdisciplinary approach to care. Important
interfaces and collaborations also occur with larger health care system
providers including VA and non VA specialists, hospitals, diagnostic and
treating facilities, and community based programs. The Advanced Level MSA
position can also serve as a Clinic Clerk for a Specialty Clinic area to
include Compensation and Pension (C&P) and will be assigned more specific
duties to that Specialty or C&P Clinic area.
