HAL F. YEE, JR., M.D., PH.D. William and Mary Ann Rice Memorial Distinguished Professor of Medicine; Chief Medical Officer and Chief, Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center; Director, Center for Specialty Access & Quality (CSAQ) UCSF/SFGH Academic Office and Clinic: San Francisco General Hospital 1001 Potrero Avenue, NH 3D7 San Francisco, CA 94110 Phone: 415-206-4808 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Website: http://livercenter.ucsf.edu/members/hyee.html Research: Our research seeks to create, implement, test, and disseminate strategies for improving the quality of and access to specialty healthcare, especially in hepatology and gastroenterology. Our investigations focus in particular on (1) integrating health information technology with specialty care delivery, (2) facilitating communication between primary care and specialty care providers, and (3) enhancing the efficiency of specialty service provision. Much of our work employs San Francisco’s safety net healthcare system, which is distinguished by universal access to primary and specialty care and a horizontally and vertically integrated healthcare system.
