Scrubbing and Huddling

Webinar Date: 
Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - 8:00am

Primary care medical home teams thrive on good communication. Daily scrubbing of patient charts and team huddles are two activities that close gaps in care, improve the efficiency of clinic teams, and encourage staff to work at the top of their license. Scrubbing the chart before a patient visit proactively alerts the clinical team to gaps in care that could be addressed during the visit. Brief team huddles help staff get on the same page about patient care needs for the day.

This webinar addresses what it means to scrub and huddle, offer suggestions for launching these processes in your clinic, and explain how scrubbing and huddling relate to PCPCH standards. Break out your cleaning brushes and let the scrubbing begin!


Webinar participants will:

  1. Have an increased understanding of scrub and huddle processes and how these activities improve patient care

  2. Come away with ideas for integrating scrubbing and huddling into your current work

  3. Understand how scrub and huddle processes relate to PCPCH standards
