Chassin will give a presentation at noon in Health Education Building Room 100 on Health Science Campus about his experience in the field and transforming health care around high reliability, safety and quality. He will discuss how this can be achieved by re-engineering the processes of health-care delivery.
His free, public talk will be followed by an open forum.
Chassin is an internationally known leader in health care and safety. He has served as the health commissioner for New York, led patient care efforts at Mt. Sinai Medical Center, and created the Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare.
The discussion offered by Chassin is a great supplement to UTMC’s goal of improving patient care, according to Dr. Carl Sirio, UT vice president for medical affairs, associate dean for clinical affairs and chief medical information officer.
“The transformation of health care is essential to the success of our academic medical center as a beacon of excellence for the people we serve,” Sirio said.
