2022 Stronger - PH343 - Operationalizing Clinical Governance & Continuous Improvement in a Health System - On Demand
In early 2021, UCHealth saw a need to create a governance model for a systemwide approach to care across our 12-hospital system. As a result, we created clinical outcomes governance groups (COGGs). These are groups of clinical and operational leaders that direct our approach to care for defined patient populations in an appropriately standardized, evidence-based manner across the UCHealth system. The COGGs include key regional leaders who are accountable for clinical outcomes, patient and provider experience, operations, and value for their patient populations. COGGs partner with clinical quality, information technology, performance improvement, supply chain and others to achieve their aims.
