    Dr. Christopher (Toff) Peabody is the Founder and Director of the UCSF Acute Care Innovation Center, an initiative of the UCSF Department of Emergency Medicine. The Center operationalizes design and engineering principles to improve the acute care system in San Francisco. The Center has several active focus areas and projects, including optimizing teamwork and care coordination, implementing social medicine resources, and streamlining workflows in light of the boarding crisis. Their landmark project, E*Drive, an open-access clinical information hub, received national recognition for making local clinical guidelines accessible to emergency clinicians at the bedside.

    Dr. Peabody serves as the Director of Quality and Performance Improvement at the San Francisco General Hospital Emergency Department, San Francisco’s public hospital and Level-1 Trauma Center. In this role, he leverages his formal training in quality improvement and patient safety to fulfill the SFGH mission of providing high-quality acute, unscheduled care to the citizens of San Francisco.

    Outside of his leadership roles at UCSF, Dr. Peabody also serves as a senior advisor to the Emergency Medicine Innovation Collaborative (EMIC), a national nonprofit group democratizing innovations in acute care. He is a practicing emergency physician at San Francisco General Hospital and has applied his innovative approach to both medical student and resident education.
