Academic health institutions are moving forward with a new facility and care model based on mission-driven growth, care stream processes, and cross-staff participation -- all fueled by the ACA’s emphasis on lowering cost and increasing acuity of care in ambulatory settings.  Session leaders chart the Care Stream Programming Process used to emphasize interdisciplinary, patient-focused care through the dismantling of office-based faculty silos and development of flexible, collaborative work environments immediately adjacent to patient care.  They detail benefits achieved including operational efficiencies, waste elimination, and improved productivity and space utilization.
