Flood of new patients forces SF General to innovate

April 11, 2010
For hospital administrator Roland Pickens, Healthy San Francisco offers more than universal health care and coverage for the city’s uninsured. The three-year-old city program also is inspiring new approaches to streamlining medical care. Pickens, chief operating officer of San Francisco General Hospital, said the city health care program has led to innovations that include evening and weekend clinics, better care of patients with chronic conditions, electronic referrals that speed up the appointment process and a teleconferencing system that has doubled the availability of interpreters. The hospital has come up with new ideas out of necessity. Its caseload has mushroomed with Healthy San Francisco; more than 8,000 patients have chosen the public hospital as their medical home.

This employer supports health care mandate

April 4, 2010
The Nibbi Brothers construction company is a big supporter of San Francisco's nearly universal health care program, even though it includes a mandate on employers to provide benefits to their workers. Bib Nibbi, the company's president, says the law levels the playing field with companies that bid against him and win by slashing their labor costs. The city, he says, should avoid a "race to the bottom." Fifth in a series by Healthy Cal contributor Richard Paddock.

Health reform is already here — in San Francisco

March 7, 2010
The overhaul of America’s health care system may be stalled in Washington, but in San Francisco, a new method of delivering health care is already in place.
