Tradeline Facilities Strategies for Academic Medicine and The Health Sciences
A model for the future of patient care in an academic setting: UCSD Health System’s Outpatient Pavilion

Friday, November 20

Gina Chang and Kevin McCausland of CO Architects with Hilary Tarazi, Senior Director of Health Sciences Planning, University of California San Diego 

Academic health institutions are moving forward with a new facility and care model based on mission-driven growth, care stream processes, and cross-staff participation — all fueled by the ACA’s emphasis on lowering cost and increasing acuity of care in ambulatory settings.  Session leaders chart the Care Stream Programming Process used to emphasize interdisciplinary, patient-focused care through the dismantling of office-based faculty silos and development of flexible, collaborative work environments immediately adjacent to patient care.  They detail benefits achieved including operational efficiencies, waste elimination, and improved productivity and space utilization.
