Quality & Safety Improvement Programs
The UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine is dedicated to providing the highest quality inpatient care for patients on the USCF Medical Service and to the promotion of quality improvement and patient safety throughout the medical center. Under the direction Michelle Mourad, the Quality and Safety Program aims to develop data-driven strategies to improve care and to lead the field by disseminating our experiences locally and nationally.
With their diverse interests and backgrounds, members of the group are currently leading a variety of innovative projects. The QI projects being led by UCSF hospitalists are included in our project dashboard with details about selected programs in the pages below:
UCSF hospitalists are also leaders and key participants in many interdisciplinary medical center performance improvement committees including the Patient Safety Committee, Clinical Performance Improvement Committee, Physicians Advisory Group for Clinical Information Systems, Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee, and the Patient Flow Committee.
