What is Care Transformation?
The national healthcare landscape is shifting. Changes in reimbursements as well as movement from fee-for-service to value-based care and an increased focus on the health of populations are driving factors. Care transformation is essential in enabling us to adapt to these changes. We will leverage and build on the great work that has been undertaken at UW Medicine in this area over the past several years. Care transformation will help drive the necessary changes across the UW Medicine system to improve our delivery of patient care and support the wise use of healthcare dollars. Care transformation comprises the strategies and tactics to help achieve the “Quadruple Aim”: improving the patient experience, achieving better health outcomes, controlling costs and addressing clinician satisfaction.
UW Medicine Way
We are creating the “UW Medicine Way” – an environment that focuses on reliable excellence, is mission-driven and patient-centered.
It’s the product of America’s brightest minds in healthcare developing best practices and integrating them into all aspects and locations of care.
Reliable excellence happens by bringing together our caring healthcare teams and their collective wisdom to deliver high-value, mission-driven care putting patients at the forefront of everything we do. This aligns with our mission to improve the health of the public.
