The Clinical Innovations Committee’s goal is to enhance the physician/patient experience through innovations in all aspects of the clinical setting.  We collaborate closely with the Quality committee to facilitate value-based care.  Through the implementation of creative ideas, the Division of General Internal Medicine has achieved the following: 

  • Ongoing work to reduce non-face-to-face work for physicians 
  • Improvement of patient access to maximize continuity and patient satisfaction 
  • Pilot project to improve hospital follow-up appointments to help decrease re-admission and monitor outcome.   

Continuous progress is being made in these areas: 

  • Streamlining of Innovation and Quality work 
  • Participation of physicians through input on clinical processes and changes 
  • Collaboration initiatives with other UCSD entities to improve elements of post hospital discharge
