More patients, greater efficiency

As UF Health’s reputation flourishes and demand for our services continues to rise, a coalition of more than 250 executive leaders, managers and frontline staff are working to help provide efficient, effective care to those we serve.

The Efficiency, Effectiveness and Patient-Centeredness, or EEPC, initiative is directed by David Guzick, M.D., Ph.D., UF senior vice president for health affairs and UF Health president, and a steering committee of executive leaders from across the organization.

The committee oversees 14 interdisciplinary work groups of faculty and staff from diverse service areas. The work groups are assigned to analyze and improve factors that affect the patient experience and length of stay.

A data support group tracks the teams’ efforts in real-time with a quality metrics dashboard to help them stay on track. Each group relies on the others to help advance our big-picture goal: To deliver exceptional service, value and quality to every patient at every encounter.
