Urban Health Plan is about community health. We strive to deliver the highest quality of care to all patients who come through our doors. At UHP, we recognize challenges that face primary care; we strive to be at the forefront of innovative practices and building a supportive environment fo-cusing on associate and provider well-being. We value our providers; we value our patients, and we know that happy providers and happy patients bring forth better outcomes. We are always searching for ways to allow providers to focus on patient care and focus on clinical-care innovation through strong, supportive departments, active clinical leadership, and responsive administration.
We are community health.
Providers are not alone; they work as part of a health care team that focuses on optimizing popula-tion management with an emphasis on personalized medicine, explores innovative practices includ-ing the use of state-of-the-art technology, EMR upgrades and improvements, use of telemedicine, and other practices to improve outcomes and decrease provider burnout, and emphasize provider learning and commitment to teamwork. We encourage provider champions for new initiatives and grants, host monthly CME accredited education sessions, foster involvement with professional school students and have a growing community-based research department.
