Vision: A Focus on Health, Not Just Care
Dell Medical School is committed to making the health care system work better. But it doesn’t stop there. We believe equally in tackling the problems in society that perpetuate inequity, stifle voices and impede progress.
It’s why we talk about improving health, not just health care. And it’s why our experts, alongside others in the community, are as focused on fostering innovation and opportunity and addressing the socioeconomic, behavioral and structural barriers to health as creating new models of person-centered, multidisciplinary care that reward value.
If it can work in Central Texas, it can work anywhere in the country — a model for a nation poised to revolutionize how people get and stay healthy.
Starting with our own practice at UT Health Austin, we’re building a team-based approach to care whose primary mission is helping people meet their goals.
It’s the metric by which we measure performance. It’s also tied to how we pay our doctors, who are rewarded for keeping people healthy — and incentivized for making the changes necessary to do so.
