Strategy 4: Deliver comprehensive clinical services that improve the health status of the communities we serve
In partnership with its clinical affiliates and other colleges, UI COM will strive to meet the different healthcare needs of patients and improve the quality and safety of the clinical experiences for our diverse communities throughout Illinois.
Chicago Campus: Integrate the faculty practice organization to become a high-functioning multispecialty group that can rapidly identify and implement clinical operations best practices.
Rhea Begeman, Travis Romagnoli, Markela Cici, Scott Jones, Priya Patel, Heather Prendergast, Jon Radosta, Terry Vanden Hoek
Chicago Campus: Increase alignment across UI Health (hospital and faculty practice) to enhance quality and enable efficiency by addressing governance, decision-making, physician leadership, and economics while preserving a culture where units and departments are encouraged to be entrepreneurial.
Working with health system, develop a clinical care quality and safety analysis to inform us on areas of challenge and opportunities for correction and establish quality and safety norms/expectations for the health system (with respective outcomes metrics)
Improve opportunities for overlap with business development and faculty practice plan in order to mitigate “pipeline leakage”
Implement Vision & Guide Alignment Committee to further enable collaboration between COM Directors of Operations and Hospital Leadership/Designees on agreed strategic vision
“Develop demand forecasting around site of care for all service lines (diversification of payer mix)”
