The HTS Team facilitated two interdisciplinary Day in the Life events in January 2018 to prepare for the activation of the brand new UCSD Outpatient Pavilion (OPP). Over the course of eight hours, the staff worked together in their beautiful workspace to validate planned workflows, test new equipment, and identify issues. Some of the staff who were in this recent Day in the Life participated in all Day in the Life events facilitated by HTS during the last eight years.

OPP is in the last phase of UCSD’s multi-year campus project. HTS began its engagement with UC San Diego Health in 2010 with the activation of the Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center followed by the activation of Jacobs Medical Center in 2016. HTS Project Manager Ali Broders has been involved in all three campus phases.  “It has been an honor working with UC San Diego over the past eight years. Watching the campus evolve and the skyline come to life has been an incredible experience. The UC San Diego team members are some of the most dedicated professionals that I have had the opportunity to work with. Their passion for creating the best possible environment for patient care has continued to build UC San Diego Health as one of the leaders in the healthcare industry.”

The HTS team will be onsite in the weeks leading up to the activation, meeting with leadership, and assisting with the oversight of the command center. The Pavilion is set to open its doors to patients next month.
