My interests at this time are multifaceted . I have a special interest in the outpatient and inpatient coordination of complex patients who often have been my patients for an upwards of 10 to 20 years . I am very passionate about the diligent and accurate coordination of my complex patients . I have been an early champion of transitional care. I perform coordinated care daily and I have felt that I have done it well with 21 plus years experience taking care of my patients in and out of the hospital setting. I believe it is so important to have had that continuity with my patients to facilitate excellent outcomes and prevent untimely readmissions . I am also passionate about preventive care with the prevention of cardiovascular related disease and also cancer . Again working closely with my colleagues in and out of the hospital setting has shown my peers that this interest in preventive medicine has been fruitful for my patients . I have been happy with the use of the Epic EMR system since my start with the CCF in May 2018. I believe it gives added helpful reminders to guide my patients with their preventive care needs at any age. I have a special interest in the treatment and coordination of care of the patient with CHF. I sit as the Chairman of the CHF committee within my predominant hospital in Canton at Mercy Medical Center. I have had that committee really show a real reduction in readmission with the disease process of CHF, I have helped through that committee begin various programs that have fostered better coordination of care with all patients who carry the diagnosis of CHF . The Meds to Beds program is one such program. I have had excellent collegial discussions with our chief of Cardiovascular Services Dr Sabe over my four plus years of leadership on that committee . He and I are passionate about quality within the department and also amongst the various specialties that routinely cardiac patients are entwined with. I am also very interested in leadership, as I have been in many years . I have held numerous positions as I do today. All the interest points towards quality care, patient experience, and economically sound medicine to benefit the patient . I want to explore leadership within the CCF with you in the APR session and further as I move on to finish my first full year as a staff member with the CCF.
