on an outpatient basis


Explanation:
This is not exactly a literal translation, but I think it's what it means. "Ambulatoriamente" suggests once the patient is "walking around". Therefore, he or she is an outpatient, no longer hospitalized. It would also make sense in the context

ambulatorily


Explanation:

Dual Diagnosis

http://psychosocial.com/current/dualdx2.html

(it's quite an interesting report, this is part of it:)
After the diagnostic procedure, which is performed ambulatorily, patients are admitted in the unit, preferably while they are
under influence. This is because most patients are dependent on opiates or alcohol. The withdrawal syndrome from opiates
or alcohol begins some 8 to 12 hours after the last use. Since the patients have to come from different parts of Israel, and
admission hours are in the morning, if the patients were not under influence when they arrive, they would start developing the
withdrawal syndrome upon arrival, and management should be much more difficult.

I hope this helps
nice regards

Ambulatorily


Explanation:
I agree with SAMSI.

We talk about AMBULATORY PATIENTS. Ambulatory describes the situation of patients that can move around while being studied.

Thus: AMBULATORILY. No doubt!

Out patient


Explanation:
In patient= a patient admitted to hospital
Out patient= not admitted to hospital. Followed up in the clinic, or an out patient department. Often you refer patients to the "OPD" (out patient department for follow up.
Ambulatorily is rather odd term in English. This medic is using formal medical languaje and should be tranlsated as OPD.


    this a conventional medical term
