The University of Chicago Medicine is committed to bringing best practices to the rest of the world and supporting international partners to improve clinical quality and operational effectiveness through tailored programs.
Consulting and Advisory Services
UChicago Medicine’s team of talented administrators and clinicians actively provide advisory and consultation services around the world in an effort to share knowledge and skills. Examples of advisory projects include, but are not limited to:
- Facility Planning & Development: When UChicago Medicine opened its state-of-the-art hospital, the Center for Care and Discovery, we used the highest industry standards for hospital development, which allowed us to transform how we care for patients by providing innovative technology that delivers the most advanced clinical treatments and improves the safety. Our development team shares this knowledge with our international partners who are building or refining health care facilities.
- Clinical & Research Program Development: With a full range of specialty services — more than 40 institutes and center — and a mission to advance medical innovation through research, UChicago Medicine researchers, health care professionals and administrators can assist international partners with developing and managing clinical and research programs.
- Quality Improvement and Patient Safety: Quality and safety are central to everything we do at UChicago Medicine. We demonstrate our commitment to safety by being one of 42 health care organizations in the United States, and the only academic medical centers in Chicago, with a consistent A grade in hospital safety. We can share UChicago Medicine's expertise and experience in quality management and patient safety with our partners to improve their practices.
- Operational Optimization: UChicago Medicine’s Operational Excellence Transformation is based on the philosophy of E3 Leadership, which includes lean methodology within daily processes, managing daily improvement and Kaisen events for continuous improvement. Our methods have allowed UChicago Medicine to have one of the most highly respected supply chain groups in the industry. We are happy to help hospitals around the globe improve their hospital management and operational optimization.
