Read the full session description below:

In the world of academic medical centers, change can sometimes be challenging. When the University of Minnesota Health began to design their new Clinics and Surgery Center, their objectives were three-fold: elevate an interprofessional care delivery model; provide a patient experience that is centered upon convenience, accessibility and market differentiation; and create operational efficiencies that will reduce the cost of care. This seminar will present the story of an institution that used a capital investment process to make a quantum leap in ambulatory care delivery — one that caught enough attention to be named a Fast Company Most Innovative Spaces and Places of the Year.
