Benjamin Wilfond, MD, has been elected Vice President/President of the Association of Bioethics Program Directors.
Dr. Wilfond was also awarded $428,000 for a one year project on Research Bioethics Consultation Standardization and Data Sharing from the NCRR through the Institute of Translational Health Sciences. This project will support the work of four national committees, the creation of a web forum, and the development of a software prototype for data-sharing.
Joel Tieder, MD, MPH, has been awarded $1.14 million as site PI in a three year, $9 million PROSPECT grant from AHRQ. The grant will fund an effort to link clinical data (labs and radiology) from the disparate EMRs from 6 pediatric hospitals to a common administrative database (PHIS, run by CHCA) to create PHIS+. The PHIS+ database will be used to answer pediatric comparative effectiveness research questions (several will be conducted under this award) and could also be used for pediatric quality improvement studies that require clinical data.
Drs. Joel Tieder and Tamara Simon have been awarded a grant for 5% salary support from CHCA to serve on the executive council for the Pediatric Research in Inpatient Settings (PRIS) network. PRIS is an independent entity founded through the Society for Hospital Medicine, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Academic Pediatric Association. It now has over 200 hospitalists from 80 centers participating in the network, representing centers from the United States and Canada.
