University of California Health System (UC Health) Report.
UC Health comprises the University of California’s clinical and health professional education arms. UC Health combines the strength of UC’s patient care, teaching and research. UC has the nation’s largest health sciences instructional program with more than 14,000 students, while its five medical centers form a $11 billion enterprise providing broad access to world-class, specialized care.
UC Health’s six health systems,= include five academic medical centers. The health sciences education system is the country’s largest with more than 14,000 students and 18 health professional schools.
Overall, UC Health generates about 117,000 jobs in the state, $12.5 billion in annual contribution to gross state product and $16.7 billion in economic activity. UC Health is a vital part of California’s safety net, providing those in need with access to quality care.
Working with an Integrated Delivery Network (IDN) has evolved over the years with accounts becoming larger, although fewer in number. Medical device and pharmaceutical sales reps no longer sell directly to pharmacists or physicians as business operations and profit have become as, if not more, important than clinical decisions.
Working successfully with IDNs is dependent upon knowing and understanding which, and how many, types of site of care and decision-makers there are in the organization. This will not include hospitals but also medical groups, long-term care, outpatient centers and clinics, specialty pharmacy, and strategy for bundled payments and population health.
