The Nurse Practitioner (NP) role is essential to the Motility Center. This requires an experienced NP who can coordinate care among different providers and across a variety of sub-specialties. The NP performs direct patient care services including evaluating and consulting on patients; following up patients pre and post motility and endoscopic procedures; reviewing and acting on results of blood chemistries, radiographic studies; discussing results with both patients and referring physicians; and scheduling procedures and next steps as needed. Responsibilities also include performing motility studies when needed (e.g. SmartPill or wireless motility studies) and assisting with GI motility research protocols, including consenting and education of patients.
The NP position is responsible for coordinating the care of 30-40 patients per week, consisting of primarily outpatients, but may include inpatients and ED patients as needed. Coordination of patient care will involve the following: outpatient clinics primarily held on campus and other off site practice locations; outpatient motility procedures; motility patients who are admitted to the inpatient medical service when needed. The NP will also work closely with all members of our Motility team (Including motility nurses) to assist with patient care issues. This position Is essential to increasing the efficiency of the clinical service and vital to a well functioning division. The NP activity significantly increases division revenue through increased throughput and overall increased GI attending productivity manifested as increased motility procedural volume and referrals.
