THE INTEGRATED STRATEGIC PLAN STAR AWARD
As a leading biomedical institution, Stanford Medicine has a duty to all members of the community to think strategically as we advance toward the future. We have created and are delivering an Integrated Strategic Plan (ISP) for the future of Stanford Medicine that is critical to our leadership and vision in Precision Health. Our ISP brings together the three entities that comprise Stanford Medicine: Stanford School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care, and Stanford Children’s Health.
This honor recognizes individuals and teams from the Stanford Medicine community who, through their extraordinary efforts, embody the strategic priorities of our Integrated Strategic Plan (ISP): Value Focused, Digitally Driven, and Uniquely Stanford. By recognizing these important contributions, Stanford Medicine leadership hopes to further promote the ISP and accelerate its momentum.
The submission deadline for the 2021 ISP Star Awards is August 31, 2021.
2020 ISP STAR AWARD WINNERS
Clinical Effectiveness Target Based Care Core Team This team created a method to promote a shared mental model of hospital goals by presenting “achievable benchmarks” from prior like-encounters at the point of care for all stakeholders, including the family. By developing tools that facilitate continuous learning and improvement while preserving safety and patient experience, the Clinical Effectiveness Target Based Care Core team has demonstrated innovative thinking that will streamline and enhance care
Clinical Virology Team By designing and validating an in-house diagnostic test for the novel coronavirus, the Clinical Virology team helped limit the spread of the virus. This effort borne of innovative thinking and strategic collaborations exemplifies how our community’s work has an impact on health locally and globally.
Emergency Department Teams The Emergency Department’s response before and during the COVID-19 pandemic embodies Stanford Medicine’s commitment to high-tech, high-touch care. This model of care puts patients at the center of their care journey, improves outcomes, and creates better experiences for patients and their families.
Kidney Transplant Team The Kidney Transplant (KT) team, under Dr. Busque and Dr. Scandling's leadership, has worked collaboratively and diligently to achieve and deliver excellence in patient care. By continuously identifying opportunities to improve patient care, the Kidney Transplant team has established itself as one of the highest-performing teams in the United States based on several metrics.
MyHealth – Hospital View Team The MyHealth – Hospital View team created a view in which patients can view members of the care team, test results, medications/side effects, progress against goals including pain and mobility & information to prepare for discharge. This provides a personalized care experience that enables patients and their families to focus on health, healing, and recovery.
Network Access Optimization Team The Network Access Optimization team optimized how patients schedule primary care appointments at all Faculty and UHA primary care clinics by creating a common work queue driven by patient preferences, increasing scheduling visibility across system, and enabling self-scheduling and positive user experience.
Stanford Cancer Center’s Tobacco Treatment Service Team The Tobacco Treatment Service team’s ability to bridge the School of Medicine’s expertise in tobacco cessation research with Stanford Health Care’s patient care environment has streamlined critical patient care. The team developed an “opt-out” approach to remove referral requirements, allowing providers to focus on immediate patient needs while ensuring access to evidence-based treatment. Cessation support options for patients include: same-day delivery of cessation medications through a partner pharmacy and counseling.
SURF (System Utilization Research for Stanford Medicine) Team SURF uses advanced technology derived from data science and machine learning to make a concrete difference in how Stanford cares for patients. Their use of data science and machine learning to reduce CLABSI infections, optimize patient flow, predict clinical events, and enhance patient care in myriad other ways exemplifies the profound impact Stanford Medicine has through cross-functional collaboration and innovative thinking.
UHA/SHC Dermatology Team Employing technology, innovation and teamwork, this team has created new and convenient access points to specialty services. By expanding dermatology service options to patients at several UHA locations while pivoting to telehealth, the UHA/SHC Dermatology team exemplifies how a digitally driven approach can streamline and expand access to high-quality care.
