All Staff Updates

USU Education Day: June 14th

  • Check out some of our very own at 0810-0840 and 0845-0915!

Peds Travel Clinic

  • Referrals are no longer required for Peds ID Travel Clinic but the travelers must be Tricare-eligible. We request that you screen the patient’s destination to determine if travel clinic is required. Please see the information below:

  • Pediatric Infectious Disease Clinic at WRNMMC offers Travel Clinic appointments for Tricare-eligible families traveling overseas. Due to limited appointment availability, priority is for PCS and high-risk travel. Please note these appointments are NOT for PCS clearance (which should be completed by the PCM).

  1. PCM determines if Travel Clinic is needed. Look at the destination of travel:

2. If Travel Clinic is needed, instruct the parent/guardian to have the following information ready and call Peds Subspecialty Clinic to book.

  1. Destination(s) of travel

  2. Travel Dates

  • Note that patients should be seen at least 2 weeks prior to departure (ideally 4-6 weeks) but also NO earlier than 2 months prior to departure. Peds ID clinic schedule is available 3 months in advance and will be strict with this timeline/window for travel clinic appointments.

  • Families MUST CALL the Peds Subspeciality Clinic to schedule their appointment at 301-319-4959. Please advise families to be patient when calling as the Peds Subspecialty Clinic front desk manage many subspecialities and also check in patients while managing the phone.

PCMH Clinic Updates:

  • Newborn bilirubin orders: Please order BOTH a total and direct bilirubin. The Neobili panel order does not communicate correctly within Genesis that we need both the total and direct.

  • Telemynd is a great resource for virtual Mental Health care as we no longer have an embedded Behavioral Health Psychologist at the moment. Families can self-refer and request care. Active Duty need a referral from their PCM. As discussed at Morning Report today, it may be difficulty for families with young children or adolescents if they are concerned about their families not giving them privacy at home.

  • Audiology:Walter Reed does not currently have any pediatric outpatient audiology services for the next 10 weeks. All patients that need hearing tests will be referred out to the network. Newborns will still get screened in the MICC, but there will be no walk in capabilities.

  • PCM Changes: For future PCM Change Requests please fill out the request form below and send to the email below:

  • CAPS Provider to Provider consult line: Please see the flyer below

    • This is for providers to ask clinical questions/assistance, but not to book any appointments

    • This number is NOT for families/patients

  • Coding: Please ensure you are documenting a problem and coding each encounter before the end of the day. This also includes all our staff, resident, rotator, and student encounters. Please see the coding cheat sheets attached!
