Partner with UHA
In contrast to many medical organizations, UHA is a team where physicians, physician leadership, engagement, and involvement are key to our development as a medical foundation. We deeply respect the entrepreneurial role of local physicians alongside the rich commitment, history and traditions of their practices, and want to ensure they remain closely engaged with practice leadership.
We are People of the Bay
At UHA we provide more than just healthcare at our local clinics; we partner with our communities to inspire change, honor life, and strengthen social awareness of the benefits of health and wellness.
Not only do we value physician leadership, feedback, and collaboration, it is an essential dimension of our community-academic based medical practice model. Physicians affiliated with UHA and Stanford Medicine have a seat at the table where decisions are made and a wealth of resources to support the high quality and innovative care their patients need.
COMPLEX CARE RESOURCES
We put the medical resources of Stanford Health Care and the Stanford School of Medicine behind you to help your practice to function at a higher level and provide your patients with the most advanced care possible.
We shoulder the administrative headaches and logistical side of running a practice (including insurance, human resources, payroll, appointment scheduling) so physicians can focus on putting patients first. This means providers have more time to concentrate on providing quality care, keep up-to-date with the latest medical research – and even teach or participate in that research.
ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS
We provide UHA medical groups with Epic, an electronic medical record (EMR) system used by Stanford Health Care, to give providers a more integrated and data-driven approach to medicine. This leading-edge software expedites access to patient data, improves prescription writing, referral authorization, and ordering of lab work, while supporting quality improvement. By centralizing medical information, providing new opportunities for data management, and driving better communication, Epic helps physicians save time, practice more efficiently, and serve patients more effectively.
Health care is undergoing many changes from a regulatory perspective, making it more important than ever for providers and hospitals to work together. We are preparing for the changing world of health care and committed to delivering value for patients.
Office of The Chief Medical Officer (OCMO)
Our mission is to provide outstanding medical care through exceptional access and service, and to deliver high value care to patients in the rapidly changing world of health care, including coordinated acute care, preventative care, and chronic disease management services.
We closely monitor health care reform requirements and opportunities for improving health care delivery and services to patients, so our health system is positioned to provide outstanding leading edge care and our physicians may focus on their patients.
