Outreach Liaison Services

In tandem with UPMC Physician Services, OPR provides outreach liaison services. Outreach liaisons are health care professionals with extensive knowledge of UPMC's clinical service lines.

They help doctors and other providers in the western Pennsylvania region.

Ways We Can Help Referring Physicians Throughout Western Pa.

Our outreach liaisons can:

  • Talk to you to assess your needs and address your concerns.
  • Work with contacts in certain clinical service areas to solve problems you often face.
  • Help you get follow-up information about patients you've referred.
  • Work with assigned contacts to promote new UPMC doctors and service lines.

Marketing plans

Liaisons can also help those who are working on regional clinical marketing plans.

Because of their experience with clinical services and unique perspective on the needs of referring doctors, they can be a valuable resource.

Continuing medical education (CME)

Outreach liaisons can arrange CME programs within assigned regions.

To do this, they may work with doctors at a regional hospital to:

  • Learn their CME needs.
  • Help schedule a CME event.
  • Arrange transportation for a doctor who will speak at the event.

They may also help recruit UPMC speakers through the University of Pittsburgh Center for Continuing Education in the Health Sciences.
