Dr. Holly Oh returns to Dimock after a year as a George W. Merck fellow at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement(IHI) in Cambridge, MA. IHI is an independent, not-for-profit organization that aims to improve the lives of patients, the health of communities, and the joy of the health care workforce. One of three people selected from the United States, Dr. Oh joined an international class of seven fellows for a one year immersion in a program that aims to develop health care leaders with the drive, skills, and experience to spread improvement in the United States and globally.
"It was a transformational year for me. Not only did I have the chance to learn improvement science skills, I also had a chance to delve into what makes high performing health care institutions tick, and learn deeply about truly patient-centered care."
"I visited some high-performing health organizations around the country-some of them are health centers with similar patient populations and resource profiles to ours-and it's tremendous what innovative things they are doing. You also start to see what solid foundations Dimock has, and what amazing possibilities lie ahead."
Dr. Oh rejoins Dimock in our clinical pediatric practice and also as the Director of Quality Improvement. She will work closely with both frontline staff and health center leadership to identify opportunities to help our patients be healthier and happier.
