The Beckwith Institute supports initiatives that innovate and improve the patient/family interface with clinical processes. Grant funds are used to support clinical-process improvements with an emphasis on activities that improve patient outcomes rather than those which solely or principally focus on cost of care.
Assure a commitment in perpetuity to the investigation and deployment of innovative, relevant and paradigm-changing clinical process improvements that significantly improve patient care.
Our mission will remain relevant and accepting of change as health care delivery evolves. To assure our congruence with this evolution, we reserve the ability to adjust areas of organizational focus over time.
The Beckwith Institute is a fully endowed fund of UPMC.
