Quality at UPMC
Every staff member and provider at UPMC is dedicated to ensuring the highest quality of patient care.
UPMC has advanced patient care through many system wide programs, including positive patient identification, reducing the risk of patient falls, eRecord (electronic patient medical records), and using technology to reduce and eliminate medication errors.
UPMC was a pilot site for Transforming Care at the Bedside(TCAB), a program to move health care operations into a more patient-centered environment. This initiative is a joint project with the Institute for Health Care Improvement and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and has spread across the system.
