Gabriel Ortiz (aka, Gabe) joined the Division of Hospital Medicine at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center (ZSFG) in 2012 in order to apply his clinical and analytic skills to quality improvement work to better the care delivered to the vulnerable communities served by this county hospital. Gabe's primary area of quality improvement work is centered around hospital operations and improving patient flow, which lies at the nexus of patient safety, patient satisfaction, and clinical quality. Gabe is certified in Toyota's LEAN production and LEAN daily management systems, and he is an avid "PDSA-er". He has contributed to the kaizen work of multiple value streams across the ZSFG campus (see featured videos for report-out links located on this profile page, below) including Med/Surg, Emergency Department, Pharmacy, Radiology, and Urgent Care, and he has contributed significantly to the 3P Design Process to lay the foundation for the patient-centered, flexible acuity model that is currently practiced in the new hospital tower of Zuckerberg San Francisco General that was opened in May 2016. Further, Gabe is a member of the ED Leadership Team, the Med/Surg Steering Committee, CPG Committee, and various other important committees at ZSFG. As part of his operational interests and in addition to the application of QI principles to hospital operations, Gabe is the clinical lead for designing and implementing electronic workflows used for delivering clinical care in the inpatient setting in preparation for an enterprise EHR implementation in the future.
Gabe continues to be devoted to improving patient flow and hospital operations with the aim to ensure the highest quality care is delivered to our most vulnerable.
