University of California grants $2.5 million for health care improvement projects
San Francisco Business Times

The University of California gave $2.5 million total to four projects at its campuses — two of them at UC San Francisco — to improve health care and lower its cost. UC gave $709,900 to Nathaniel Gleason, M.D., at UCSF to improve communication between primary care doctors and specialists, thereby saving time patients wait between appointments, and eliminating unneeded appointments. Doctors can recommend some patients to a specialist without them needing to appear in person at their primary care doctor’s office.
