Vanderbilt Familiar Faces (VFF) program has a goal to provide care for patients that have established a pattern of increasing healthcare utilization. The goal is to provide and coordinate care within both the inpatient and outpatient settings with a desire to improve the overall value of care that is delivered. By routinely assessing patients’ environmental, behavioral, emotional, physical, and functional needs using standardized tools, the healthcare team will uncover potential barriers to achieving optimal health outcomes. Each patient will have an individualized care plan created by the team that encompasses the outpatient, emergency room, and inpatient settings.

VFF practice will be a multi-disciplinary approach to care. The team will consist of physicians, advanced practice providers, case management, licensed clinical social worker, pharmacy, nursing, and program coordinator. Inpatient care will include daily multi-disciplinary rounds with input from all involved providers. Outpatient care will include post-discharge follow-up and scheduled visits Monday thru Friday. The team will come together in once a week huddles to discuss individualized patient needs or barriers to care within the clinic.

This is our mission: Engendering trusting relationships with chronically ill patients through inter-disciplinary collaborative practice to improve the patient experience and quality of life.
