How Can I Participate in the Stanford Medicine Integrated Strategic Planning Process?

A large portion of our community has already contributed during our assessment and planning phases, providing insights into the state of Stanford Medicine. The following is a link to our diagnostic findings. As we move forward, we are eager to continue engaging the community. These insights informed the development of our key focus areas. The Integrated Strategic Planning (ISP) committee will sponsor the ISP Star Award Program, which recognizes individuals from the Stanford Medicine community whose work puts into action the three strategic priorities of the ISP: being value focused, digitally driven, and uniquely Stanford. By recognizing these important contributions, we hope to further promote the ISP and accelerate its momentum.

What is the Timeframe for the Integrated Strategic Plan? 

Certain components of the ISP will be managed through 2025, though its impact will live on beyond this date. 

How is This Different Than Previous Strategic Plans?

The goal of the ISP is to align decision-making and planning for the Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care, and Stanford Children’s Health | Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, contributing to the overall Stanford Medicine strategy.

How Will the Integrated Strategic Plan Incorporate the Precision Health Vision?

The ISP will help achieve our Precision Health vision by supporting integration and alignment across Stanford Medicine as it builds and leverages strengths in fundamental research, the new field of biomedical data science, and transformative biomedical platforms. The Plan will identify ways to apply advances in these areas throughout the hospitals and health care delivery systems within Stanford Health Care and Stanford Children's Health | Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford.

What is the Connection to the University's Long-Range Planning Process? 

Stanford Medicine has structured its full strategic plan to complement the University’s long-range planning vision. We are participating in the ongoing University Long-Range Planning Process, and we have incorporated this into our own process. 

Who is the Intended Audience? 

Stanford School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care, and Stanford Children’s Health | Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford.
