CHQI, the Center for health Quality and Innovation, was established in 2010 to foster innovations that promote quality, access, and value at UC medical center campuses and hospitals. Since established the center has issued 50 grants. A recently released report projects a return on investment of more than 5 to 1, with at least $25 million in grant-generated cost savings in revenues by the end of 2016.

The report was prepared by the center’s Innovation Evaluation Committee, which includes Michael Ong of UCLA, Patrick Romano of UC Davis, Andrew Auerbach of UCSF, Sheldon Greenfield of UC Irvine, Theodore Ganiats of UC San Diego and Stephen Shortell of UC Berkeley CHOIR, and Karyn DiGiorgio, executive director of the center.
