03/24/11

Wormuth David NewsDavid Wormuth, MD, MPH, is the new Medical Director for ARRA Implementation at Crouse Hospital. ARRA – American Recovery and Reinvestment Act – is federal legislation that all healthcare providers will have to adhere to in order to receive maximum reimbursement for services. A key piece of ARRA is the implementation over time of an electronic medical record (EMR) and computerized provider order entry (CPOE).

 

 In this new role, Dr. Wormuth will be responsible for chairing clinical advisory groups to provide input into the design of a clinical information system; engaging clinical staff in the development and use of the system; and working with the Information Technology team and medical staff in the design of clinical order sets to gain efficacy and support for patient care protocols.

  

A long-time member of the Crouse Hospital medical staff, Dr. Wormuth is a board-certified thoracic surgeon who also has completed a fellowship in medical informatics. “We are extremely fortunate to have his guidance and expertise on this major strategic initiative and we look forward to working with him,” states Chief Medical Officer Ron Stahl, MD.
