University of California Health
University of California Health (UCH) operates the largest health sciences educational system in the nation with programs in dentistry, medicine, nursing, optometry, pharmacy, public health and veterinary medicine.
The Center for Data-Driven Insights and Innovation (CDI2) supports research, informs and improves UC Health's business and clinical operations, and generates efficiencies through economies of scale.
The Clinical Strategy & Operations (CSO) department serves in a key strategic and integrative role, responsible for driving systemwide development and coordination of clinical care services, quality programs and systemwide working groups, as well as complex, mission-critical initiatives. The CSO department includes UC Cancer Consortium, Long COVID education program, UC Population Health, and Student Health & Counseling.
The UC Health Finance and Administration (F&A) department provides strategic, financial, and administrative direction to support and optimize the overall effectiveness of UC Health. Led by the Associate Vice President, Finance and Administration, F&A teams work closely with the UC Health division, UC Health academic medical centers and UC Office of the President to provide innovative solutions to complex strategic matters and administer inclusive, efficient operational and financial support.
The Health Policy and Regulatory Affairs (HRPA) department monitors state and federal legislative and regulatory activity, engages UC experts to assess the impact of policy proposals and develops strategies to advance UCH’s policy priorities on issues spanning health professions, education and workforce, clinical care, research and health operations. HPRA provides expertise on issues with the greatest impact to UCH and works with the University’s government relations team to help ensure these insights are shared with elected officials, policy makers and external partners.
Within the UC Health Systemwide Operations team one of the main focuses has been the Leveraging Scale for Value (LSfV) program. The LSfV Program reduces cost and improves quality and revenue across UCH academic health centers. This Program has generated a cumulative impact of more than $2 billion since inception. Elsewhere across the Systemwide Operations team there is focus on increasing efficiencies and sharing of operational best practice across the Health enterprise.
