Dr. Day is an associate professor of medicine at UCSF, Director of Clinical Gastroenterology at the Zuckerburg San Francisco General Hospital (ZSFG) and the Associate Chief Medical Officer for Specialty Care and Diagnostics at ZSFG. His research interests center on organizational design and development of efficiency models for health care system delivery to vulnerable patient populations. Specifically, his research explores the delivery of healthcare through the endoscopy center. He is currently working on developing key innovations that can be implemented at the ZSFG endoscopy center that focus on maximizing staff and physician efficiency, improving patient access to endoscopic care, and strengthening patient satisfaction. His research has spanned projects that have examined the quality of outpatient GI consultation notes, improving patient access though implementing a set of discharge criteria after endoscopy, studying the informed consent process in endoscopy education classes and improving endoscopy center operational efficiency using time and motion studies and simulation modeling.
