2012-13 Chief's Report | BIDMC Chief's Report 2012-2013 PDF



In summary, there are a lot of exciting things going on at BIDMC and HCORP. The residency program is thriving and at BIDMC we continue to expand our clinical, teaching and research activities. The new world of health care certainly presents challenges, but also opportunities to provide care for the 21st century that is better than we could have imagined in the past. There is a huge focus on patient safety and preventing harm at BIDMC and we were just awarded 2013 AHA-McKesson Quest for Quality Prize for leadership in patient safety and quality issues. All of this makes coming to work each day exciting!
