Imagine Perfect Care

Overview

University of Utah Health Sciences is revolutionizing academic medicine.

At the center of our success is the purpose and inspiration for our work: patients. Yet the unrelenting pace of change and the growing complexity of the health care landscape threatens our ability to satisfy the expanding needs of our patients. In this environment, our organization has an opportunity to further evolve our ability to exceed patient expectations & become a health care system that we are even more proud of, for our friends, our families, & our community.

Building on the remarkable success and engagement of our faculty, providers and staff, we are challenging each to Imagine Perfect Care. How can each individual, team, and unit further improve our health care system by re-imagining the entire clinical care delivery system from the patient’s perspective? From the valet drivers to the billing office, from our ability to respond to unscheduled patient needs to our ability to manage the continuum of rehabilitation, from our ability to respond to unscheduled patient needs to our ability to manage the continuum of rehabilitation, from our coordination of care to patient communication: What can we imagine health care to be if we could reinvent ourselves?
