Why are we implementing CareConnect?

CareConnect will transform the way we deliver care

The leadership of the UCLA Health and David Geffen School of Medicine believes CareConnect is essential to take the organization to the next level of excellence as a worldwide leader in:

  • Patient care
  • Education
  • Research
  • Innovation

CareConnect represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform the way care is delivered by integrating systems across the health system, streamlining processes, and increasing efficiency through such functionality as:

  • One person, one chart
  • One scheduling system
  • Around-the-clock availability of patient records to providers
  • A single database as a source to a data repository for quality improvement and research

CareConnect will enhance our patients' experiences of care across the health system.

  • Similar experience of care wherever patients are seen
  • Patient safety
  • Increased quality of care from improved continuity of care, and better integration of best practices and evidence-based medicine
  • More thoroughly coordinated care planning
  • Easier scheduling and simplified billing
  • Empowered patients who can become directly involved in the management of their own health information and the services they receive from us via a secure online patient portal
