Academic Health Centers: Leading Healthcare Transformation

As the only healthcare organizations that can align the education of healthcare professionals, biomedical research, and patient care/population health to create a leading health system, academic health centers are uniquely positioned to lead healthcare transformation in the 21st century:

  • They embody the Virtuous Cycle in which the tripartite mission of education, research, and patient care not only inform each other but also make each other better at what they do.
  • They implement leadership strategies toward sustainable, forward-looking approaches that lead to improved health and well-being.
  • They manage operations in integrated and aligned organizational models.
