Department of Surgery Grand Rounds
Speaker: Michael W. Mulholland, MD, PhD
Executive Director, University of Michigan Medical Group
Title: "UMMG – Surgery Partnership"
The presentation will focus upon the evolution of Michigan Medicine into an integrated health care system. The role of the University of Michigan Medical Group in this transformation, and the crucial contributions of the Department of Surgery and its faculty will be discussed. Specific initiatives in practice optimization, telehealth adoption, and call center consolidation are underway. These depend crucially on the full participation of all Surgery faculty members. A specific example of that participation, and its link to departmental finance, in the form of OR supply utilization, will be illustrated.
