President David Callender launched his “Pulse” video update series in May to keep the UTMB family up-to-date on issues affecting the organization. In June, those videos covered:
A review of the work being conducted with consultants and a discussion about UTMB’s financial picture.
An explanation about why UTMB is facing financial challenges and the process we’re using to address these issues.
How UTMB is producing more revenue and increasing access to care in its clinics and hospitals
A description of the benchmarking process used by Huron and BRG—the two consulting firms helping UTMB identify opportunities to improve our cost structure or improve revenue.
There are multiple ways to access Dr. Callender’s video updates. In addition to the recap in Weekly Relays, you can watch and listen to the videos from https://www.utmb.edu/president/pulse. Please use a modern web browser for the best experience. If you are at a PC without audio or speakers, closed captioning on the videos can be turned “On” and “Off” by clicking the “CC” symbol in the video player tool bar (the symbol displays once you hit “play,” on the right side of the tool bar). Closed captioning is now on by default.
You can also access the transcripts on the Pulse website to read the messages; a transcript accompanies each video. If you are a social media user, the videos (with subtitles) are posted to the UTMB employee Facebook page, I Am UTMB. Facebook will display captions if you mute the sound.
