ACP Hospitalist, the American College of Physicians’ industry publication for hospital medicine physicians, has named Honora Englander, M.D., assistant professor of medicine, a 2012 Top Hospitalist in their November issue. This designation is the result of a peer nomination process and recognizes hospitalists “who have truly distinguished themselves in areas including patient safety, community involvement, clinical skills, quality improvement, leadership and teaching.”
Dr. Englander is the co-principal investigator and medical director of the Care Transitions Innovation (C-TraIn), a transitional care quality improvement program. As part of the Health Commons grant awarded to Health Share of Oregon (the coordinated care organization in which OHSU is a partner), she will work with Legacy Emanuel, Legacy Good Samaritan and Legacy Mt. Hood to launch the intervention, which was developed and studied in a randomized controlled trial at OHSU, in each of those hospitals.
She and colleague Devan Kansagara, M.D., assistant professor of medicine, received an outstanding contribution award from the OHSU Professional Staff for C-TraIn earlier this year.
