Enterprise Registration - Coming Summer 2012

Froedtert and MCW are collaborating on a new structure for “Enterprise Registration” to be fully implemented with the Prelude/EPIC go-live in the Summer 2012 time frame. Both parties recognize the potential for increased efficiency, and enhanced patient experience, improved work flows, increased accuracy and revenue maximization by the adoption of this shared and collaborative structure.

The preliminary draft organizational structure includes a single Director of Enterprise Registration with several units reporting directly to this position. The Director will have a dual reporting relationship to Marion Livingstone, for the MCP Practice and to Mike Malzewski, AVP for Froedtert.

One of the units reporting to the Enterprise Registration Director is “Manager of Pre-authorization”. This will be a combination of a centralized and de-centralized (coordinated) function. The plan is that those departments or clinics that currently manage the pre-authorization process effectively and efficiently will continue to do so.

Again this will be a collaborative process that is still in evolution with the intent of optimizing the infrastructure of our practice.

If you have any questions about this, please contact Lee Biblo or Marion Livingstone. This conversation/planning will continue over the next year as we finalize our strategy for the Summer 2012 rollout of Enterprise Registration.

Dr. Ted MacKinney wins Addis Costello Award from the Wisconsin ACP

Ted MacKinney, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Medicine (General Internal Medicine), has been awarded the Wisconsin ACP’s 2010 Addis Costello prize. The award honors the memory of Dr. Addis Costello, a Milwaukee physician leader who worked tirelessly to address socioeconomic factors affecting the practice of internal medicine.

Dr. MacKinney is a graduate of the Medical College and completed his residency and MPH at Johns Hopkins. He first joined the College as faculty in 1991, but has interrupted his tenure on a few occasions to work in Nepal. Dr. MacKinney’s work to develop health services in resource-poor settings is in the fine tradition of Dr. Addis Costello.

Dr. MacKinney is the founder and director of Living River Health Services, providing care to poor Nepalese. His work in Nepal includes starting a teaching and mission hospital, directing two hospitals, managing hospital staff and establishing the first diabetes specialty clinic in the country.

Here at the College, Dr. MacKinney has been awarded an Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin grant to partner with “Milwaukee Cares,” a charitable organization which coordinates medical care and donations of supplies and services. He sits on the Global Health Pathway council and won the 2007 MCW Marquette Medical Alumni Association Humanitarian award and AOA designation from the 2009 graduating class, specifically for his “excellence in serving the underprivileged and in role modeling sensitivity to patients’ different cultures and beliefs.”

Dr. MacKinney has also received the 2009 SGIM Midwest Award for outstanding community service. He directs the continuity clinic experience for the Internal Medicine Residency Program and practices primary care at the General Internal Medicine Clinic at Froedtert East.

Hunger Task Force Collection Ends

We collected 1,663 pounds of food and $20 for the Food for Families drive. Sadly, that is 347 pounds shy of our goal of 2010 pounds. However, that is 1,663 pounds of food that went out to shelters, food pantries, and soup kitchens to feed people in our community. It wouldn’t have been there without our efforts. While we didn’t reach the goal to have a departmental casual week, I have to call that a success.
