UCSF IT Update

January 2014

Presenter: Joe Bengfort

It consolidation background context
IT Consolidation: Background / Context

  • Market and financial pressures obviate the need for UCSF to act more and more as one institution.

  • UCSF IT needs are rapidly evolving and escalating, e.g.:

    • Data access

    • Analytics

    • Integration of systems and data across missions

    • Mobility (communications; data; applications)

    • Secure / simple movement of large amounts of data

    • High perform. computing / high speed networks / high capacity storage

  • Recent IT leadership changes offer an opportunity to revisit our structure to address these needs.

A unique opportunity to reshape our investment in IT around the evolving needs of the UCSF missions.

Higher level it strategies
Higher Level IT Strategies

  • Reshape our investment in IT to meet the evolving needs of UCSF:

    • Optimize sustaining operations expenses (e.g. maintenance; administration of systems)

    • Shift investment into transformational capabilities. (e.g. Data Warehousing / Analytics; Tele-health; Clinical Communications; High Performance Computing; Population Mgmt Systems, etc…)

  • Establish roles and processes to facilitate close collaboration between IT and UCSF departments:

    • Solutions Architects

    • Customer Engagement Manager

    • IT Program / Project Managers

  • Leverage IT infrastructure across UCSF to meet expanding needs at sustainable cost.

    • Network (wide area network; voice network; video; wireless network; firewalls, etc…)

    • Unified Communications (web meetings; desktop video; instant messaging; etc…)

    • Data Center services (computing servers; storage; backups, etc…)

    • Security technologies and policies

  • Establish and optimize processes to remove waste, increase quality and enhance our ability to execute on project and operational commitments.

    • Utilizing Lean methodology

    • Aimed at increasing productivity, improving customer experience, shortening turn-around times

Topics of interest to research
Topics of Interest to Research

  • Establishing Enterprise Data Warehouse Capability

    • Have establish a central team to create a data warehouse, data governance and analytical support capability.

    • Three dashboards have been produced over the last 6 months including:

      • Flash-dash: Operational Dashboard reflecting key aspect of hospital operations (census, revenue, volumes, visit schedule lag, etc…)

      • Dish-dash: Discharge before noon performance

      • Quality Dashboard: Over 350 quality metrics

    • Two Research related dashboards under development now:

      • Upgrade to Flash-dash to include a view of patients related to Clinical Trials. Targeting February availability.

      • Cohort exploration tool allowing researchers to search ApeX data in a de-identified fashion but with direct, self service access. – Targeting March availability.

    • Data management plan under development

  • Shared Equipment Grant (S-10) submitted for High Performance Computing

    • Collaborative approach between ICHS and IT.

    • UCSF committed matching funds to increase likelihood of success.

    • Expect results in 2nd Q 2014.

Topics of interest to research1
Topics of Interest to Research

  • Academic Research Systems (Doug Berman) – Recent Developments

    • Clinical Data

      • Data from APeX and SFGH available upon request

      • IDR – Provides cohort sizes for UCSF patients

      • UC-ReX - Provides cohort sizes for patients at all five-UC medical campuses. Facilitates collaboration on studies.

    • Research Environment

      • MyResearch – Improved interface, improved and updated statistical software

    • Contact [email protected] for assistance

  • Topics of Lower Interest…but high importance

    • Windows XP support expiration: April 8, 2014

      • Microsoft will no longer provide security patches.

      • This makes any XP computer vulnerable to virus and hacking attacks.

      • Further, this results in increased risk to all other computers and data on the UCSF network.

      • Upgrading Microsoft XP computers to Windows 7 is required by April 8, 2014.

      • The software upgrade to Windows 7 may require you to upgrade or replace computers in your department.

    • Encryption:

      • Recent, high profile losses of PHI due to stolen, unencrypted laptops and desktops.

      • Most have been personally owned devices being used for UCSF purposes.
