The Integrated strategic plan aligns the enterprise and ensures progress on Key strategic efforts. 

The Stanford Medicine Integrated Strategic Plan (ISP) is human centered and discovery led, focused on three overarching strategic pillars: Value Focused, Digitally Driven, and Uniquely Stanford. The ISP informs how each entity at Stanford Medicine - while operationally and financially independent - will develop strategies and make decisions within its respective domain.

ISP 2030 serves as a roadmap to ensure that we are actively identifying new pathways to achieve our goal: To improve human health through discovery and care.
