2 recent awards for the DOC

Saturday, July 8, 2017

We are excited to announce the Duke Outpatient Clinic as recipients of two recent awards:


One award was a quarterly 3D It Takes a Team Award presented by Duke University Hospital's Chief Operating Officer, Carolyn Carpenter The DOC was selected for this award because of their "TAGTEAM" service, a "Team Approach Geared Toward Effective Anticoagulation Management".  In 2011, the DOC pharmacy services took over warfarin-anticoagulation management for patients at the DOC. They quickly discovered the challenges in such a highly complex patient population, so they developed a process to review management for each patient during monthly leadership team meetings. 

Carpenter stated in her award announcement:

"Your story was an excellent example of how we Discover, Develop and Deliver [3D] a healthier tomorrow for our patients, their loved ones and each other."


A tribute to their compassionate, thoughtful care coordination that focuses on putting the person who needs their care at the center of everything they do, including how they came together to coordinate comprehensive services for a patient who was homeless.

"I am exceedingly proud of the DOC team and all you have accomplished," says Dr. Ebony Boulware, Chief of General Internal Medicine at Duke. "On behalf of our patients and all of Duke, thank you so much for all of your dedication and commitment to caring for our patients in the best ways possible."
