Continuous Quality Improvement
David Leach Award
Our multidisciplinary group at University of Washington Medical Center received the ACGME David Leach Award for our coordinated project focusing on enhancing vigilance for post-operative patients through standardized post-operative checklist.

Highest Quality Care

Regardless of where we practice medicine, it is up to us as individual physicians to ensure the highest quality of care that we can deliver to our patients. At each location, the demography and cultural composition of our patients have revealed different approaches to language barriers, self-understanding of disease, and even the perception of pain.

As a physician, I wrote a recent essay that describes the obstacles I believe most significantly impede the adoption of standards of healthcare delivery in these diverse settings.

I have obtained Six Sigma and LEAN certification and patient safety curricula, and published work on outcomes-based research studies and clinical trials on informatics tools in peer-reviewed journals.
