============================================
Docs, have all your ducks in a row so that you will be ready when the opportunities arise.  As my mother used to say, “The early bird gets the worm.”  (This seems to be good advice until I got older, then I started thinking about being the “early worm.”)  In any event, this is great advice from Col Frank Yang.

Hot Flash: Opportunity to Help Guide Policy for “Trusted Care.”

Thanks and tip o’ the hat to Col Kimberly Sencindiver for endeavoring to engage Air National Guard Subject Matter Experts in the process to improve access to care, quality, safety and information technology. (Please see ANG Trusted Care SME Volunteer Request) WWP

Col Sencindiver explains, “In the past year the Military Healthcare System (MHS) has undergone a comprehensive review examining the care delivered and comparing it to external healthcare systems. In the end, it determined the MHS delivers good safe care but has significant variability across the system similar to many civilian healthcare systems. The review identified opportunities to improve access to care, quality, safety, and information technology activities to propel the MHS towards becoming a high performing healthcare system.

 The Air Force Surgeon General is committed to move the total Air Force Medical System (AFMS) towards becoming a high performance healthcare system by instilling principles of a high reliability culture of safety with a goal to of zero harm, which exemplifies TRUSTED CARE. Achieving this will involve a renewed focus on continuous process improvement, business re-engineering and the necessary resources to include health information technology to support the staff.

 The HQ AF/SG office recognizes that many of our National Guard members may already have expertise in these areas and would like to obtain a onetime voluntary data call of current guardsmen with any of the skills identified below that may be interested in supporting the AFMS in the transformation to Trusted Care.   The cross-function SMEs on this database will be provided the opportunity to assist as the need arises and their schedules permit.”

Password for the document is the first name of the Air National Guard Surgeon General—4 letters, starts with an “M” and rhymes with “bark.”  (Do not need a high level of security, but enough to keep the web bots and crawlers from extracting the contact information.  Any problems or questions, drop me a note wwpond@aol.com)

=================================

Thanks to Col Desko for making available the 2015 Waiver for USAF FS Primary Aircraft Sortie Requirements which addresses the requirment that flight surgeons log 50% of their  hours in the primary aircraft of the unit, a requirment which may be impossible to meet due to lack or limited availability of dual seats in the primary aircraft.

(Document is filed in the Documents page and is therefore searchable with a search engine and available from a non-military computer for those who do not have ready access to a military computer.)
