To adapt to and thrive in a rapidly changing health care environment, UC San Diego Health developed a five-year strategic plan in 2013. This plan was accomplished by evaluating previous goals and results, analyzing market data, interviewing key internal and external stakeholders such as competitors, payers and affiliates, and surveying staff and physicians.
Hundreds of physicians, administrators and staff have collaborated to prepare a unified roadmap to help the organization offer the best possible patient care, while also operating as an efficient organization that can succeed in an environment of health care reform.
The plan clarifies the future direction of UC San Diego Health and establishes clear priorities to guide decision-making and resource allocation. The four areas of focus include: Patient Experience, Clinical Excellence, Performance Management and Growth. These themes, especially Patient Experience, will guide UC San Diego Health's clinical expansion plans and activities in the years to come.
