Introducing the UHC Research Institute, a groundbreaking program established to provide the knowledge  and insights you need to lead the way in improving the nation’s health care delivery system. As the health care industry undergoes unprecedented transformation, academic medical center (AMC) administrators, physicians, and other clinical and operational leaders must help shape a sustainable health care system that is capable of providing high-quality, accessible, and affordable care. Operating in an increasingly demanding and complex environment, AMCs face a major turning point that calls for courage, foresight, and leadership in order to promote lasting, meaningful change. The UHC Research Institute offers an innovative research and development platform that evaluates opportunities to fundamentally redesign health care processes and provides practical, tested solutions that can immediately be put into action to effect change in your institutions and, ultimately, throughout the industry.
