Primary care providers will be responsible for the delivery of primary care to patients enrolled in their panels at the Fargo VA Healthcare System (Minot CBOC). The provider will manage scheduled and unscheduled patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
Primary care providers in the outpatient setting are typically assigned a panel of patients to manage. Panel size is determined by utilizing VHA PCMM software. Panel size is determined at the National level, through a complex formula which extracts local information regarding acuity of assigned patients, available support staff, number of exam rooms, etc. Each provider's panel size is specific to their practice and setting.
Alternative or collateral duties may include management of a subsection of primary care patients. The subsection may be defined either by a disease status (e.g. spinal cord injury patients), or demographic status (women veterans etc). Typically these duties are designated at the time of joining but occasionally during the course of employment, participation in special projects pertinent to the assigned section may be necessary.
Providers are expected to act as "surrogates" for the patients of their colleagues, when one or more of their colleagues are on leave.
All providers need to follow departmental and VHA policies for leave and attendance and will work within Title 38 appointment guidelines. Leave should be requested in as much advance as possible to minimize disruption to patient care services. All unscheduled absences must be properly communicated.
No emergency services on site.
- Work Schedule: Monday - Friday, 0800 - 1630.
- Financial Discloser Report: Not required.
