New York, NY (PRWEB) July 25, 2014

Dr. Henry H. Ting, a nationally recognized leader and innovator in health care quality, has been appointed senior vice president and chief quality officer at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, effective July 21, 2014. In his new role, he will oversee the hospital's clinical quality and patient safety initiatives.

Dr. Ting has successfully led quality initiatives and interprofessional teams at the local, regional and national levels. Nationally, he led teams for the Door-to-Balloon Alliance, a collaboration of more than 1,000 hospitals to improve treatment and outcomes for patients with severe heart attacks, as well as teams for Hospital-to-Home: Excellence in Transitions of Care, an initiative to reduce 30-day readmission rates for patients hospitalized with congestive heart failure.

Most recently, Dr. Ting was a professor of medicine and served as the associate dean for the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. He also served as the director for the Mayo Clinic Quality Academy, where he was responsible for quality improvement education, training and coaching for all 60,000 Mayo Clinic staff. His prior positions at the Mayo Clinic include clinical practice chair for the division of cardiovascular diseases and chair of regional cardiovascular practices.

"Dr. Ting is one of the top minds in the country in the field of health care quality," said Dr. Steven J. Corwin, chief executive officer of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. "His experience, vision and leadership will help us enhance service across the continuum to deliver the safest, most reliable, and highest-quality care to our patients."

Dr. Ting graduated from Cornell University with a bachelor's degree in chemistry and received his medical degree from Harvard Medical School. He completed his internal medicine residency and fellowship training in cardiovascular diseases and interventional cardiology at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. Dr. Ting also holds a master's degree in business administration from the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He serves on various national committees, including those for the National Quality Forum, American Board of Internal Medicine, American College of Cardiology, and the American Heart Association. Dr. Ting has published over 120 peer-reviewed papers and serves as the principal investigator for an Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality federal grant.

"NewYork-Presbyterian is one of the top academic medical centers for patient-centered care, research and education," said Dr. Ting. "I am honored and excited to work with our dynamic and creative teams to improve outcomes, safety and service that matter to our patients and communities."
