Biographical

Since joining as a faculty member in the department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology (GHN) at The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center I have been focused on strengthening and building our Hepatology division as well as our Liver Transplant program. I have successfully been able to do this through several ways.



The largest contribution that I have made to our GHN division as well as the liver transplant department has been my focus as a clinician. Through my contributions in my clinical practice as well as my dedication to our inpatient Hepatology service and Hepatology consult team, our general Hepatology referrals have increased by, our liver transplant referrals have increased by , and we have met or exceeded the goal of liver transplants done at our medical center every year. In fact, we have done more liver transplants in the 2016 calendar year than in any other previous year at this medical center, while also maintaining nationally recognized graft and patient survival outcomes.



Through this busy clinical schedule I have been able to exceed my wRVU target. In the 2016 Academic Year, I was >3000 wRVUs over my target. This demonstration in excellence in clinical care in our GHN and liver transplant departments has lead to my current appointments as the Medical Director of Liver Transplantation as well as the physician leader of the GHN Practice Management Committee. Since taking on the Practice Management lead, the patients waiting to be seen in our Hepatology clinics has significantly decreased; greater than 1000 patients to a now more manageable less than 50 patients on a consistent basis. Our Hepatology clinic access has also significantly improved from greater than 6 months to less 3 months for general Hepatology patients to less than 2 weeks for liver transplant referrals.



Besides increasing the number of referrals, activations and liver transplantations at our medical center, my role as the Medical Director of Liver Transplantation has also focused on improving the care of these patients pre and post transplant. I serve as the chairman of our Liver Care group that meets monthly to discuss areas of improvement in our pretransplant process including updating our current protocols, which also developing new protocols that align with the current standard of care. I also serve on the Liver Quality committee that also meets monthly and focuses on the improvement of care in our post transplant patients. I also serve as one of the Co-Chairs in our Patient Progress meeting that meets weekly to improve the efficiency of our liver transplant referral process. Since I started this meeting, our time from referral to liver transplant activation has decreased by over 30%. I am also part of the biweekly committee that reviews our higher risk post transplant patients. All of these committees serve the purpose of improving the quality of care that our pre and post liver transplant patients receive at our medical center.



I will continue to strive to help lead our liver transplant program, while also increasing our hepatology referrals with continued outreach and improving upon our clinic access. Our medical center is well on our way in becoming a liver transplant center that is no longer just locally recognized.
