Members on the Move
IDSA Board Member, R. Michael Buckley, MD, FIDSA, retired last fall from his position as executive director of Pennsylvania Hospital (PAH) after 37 years of service.  Dr. Buckley was responsible for the clinical, research, and education activities of PAH, overseeing more than 1,000 physicians and 2,700 employees. He became chief medical officer of PAH in 2000 and was named executive director in 2010. Dr. Buckley began his term on the IDSA Board of Directors in 2012 and will serve until this fall.

David Classen, MD, a member of the IDSA Quality Improvement Committee, was recently named to the National Quality Forum’s Health Information Technology (HIT) Safety Committee.  This committee will explore the intersection of HIT and patient safety in order to create a report that will provide a comprehensive framework for assessment of HIT safety measurement efforts, a measure gap analysis and recommendations for gap-filling, and best practices and challenges in measurement of HIT safety issues to-date.
