During her first year at UCSF, Rachel worked with Radiology using lean methodologies to streamline flow and improve patient access within Mammography, helped to implement a new nasal decolonization process for arthroplasty and CT surgery patients, developed a new workflow for CT surgery transfers, supported a variety of projects within Neurosurgery in planning for service line growth, and contributed to a variety of other projects within the health system. For her second year, Rachel will be directing the Spine service line, supporting both inpatient and outpatient operations and strategy.

Avi Tutman, MBA, MPH

Avi was born in Boston to immigrants from the former Soviet Union. His childhood was split between Massachusetts and Northern California. Avi received his B.A. in Economics from the University of California, Santa Cruz. He went on to work for two asset management firms in the SF-Bay Area. His interest in healthcare emerged when he provided end-of-life care for his paternal grandfather. He then enrolled in the MBA/MPH joint-degree program at Yale University. While completing his graduate education, Avi spent his first summer at the Cleveland Clinic, working to reduce avoidable readmissions in the Urology service line. Avi spent his second summer at McKinsey & Company, a management consultancy, advising a state client on behavioral health integration for their Medicaid program. Outside of work, Avi enjoys piano composition, watching the latest Broadway musical, and traveling.

In his first year at UCSF Health, Avi worked on variety of projects across the health system. He project-managed a pilot program in Langley Porter Psychiatric Hospital & Clinics (LPPHC) for Collaborative Care, a model of integrated behavioral health. Avi also led the newly formed Transitional Operations Group between UCSF and a SNF partner and completed an evaluation of the financial impact of the Office of Population Health & Accountable Care (OPHAC). For his second year, Avi has assumed a dual role as both a Program Manager for Ambulatory Risk Adjustment in Population Health and Operations Lead for Behavioral Health Integration at LPPHC.
