Blueprint, Summer 2015

Pursuing broad adoption of “advanced primary care”—team-based, coordinated health services that use information technology and a common set of quality measures to improve access, quality of care, and the patient experience, and reduce avoidable hospital stays and costs—is an ambitious part of New York State’s health agenda, and UHF is helping develop a strategic plan for promoting this model approach in New York City. The summer 2015 Blueprint cover story explores the benefits, and challenges, ahead. Also in this issue: a renewed focus on child health; preventing infections in home care patients; understanding family caregivers’ needs and preferences for learning tools; promoting the safer use of antibiotics; saluting hospital trustees’ service; a new UHF vice president; and a new board of directors vice chairman.
