Awards and Recognition
Dr. Bhavan receives Clinical Excellence Award for S-OPAT Program
Dr. Kavita Bhavan receives the Clinical Excellence Program Development Award. Led by Dr. Bhavan, the Parkland Memorial Hospital Self-Administered Outpatient Parenteral Antibiotic Therapy (S-OPAT) Program was designed to allow uninsured patients who cannot access traditional outpatient intravenous antibiotic delivery services the ability to complete treatment for complex infections in the comfort of their own homes.
Dr. John Warner, Executive Vice President for Health system Affairs presents Dr. Bhavan the 2018 Clinical Excellence Program Development Award. This award celebrates the innovation and collaboration that are foundational to the success of UT Southwestern Medical Center. It recognizes a group of clinical faculty and staff who have partnered to create, develop, and sustain an innovative program that significantly advances our ability to improve the care received by our patients.
In her words: “Our team is honored to be recognized by the leadership of UT Southwestern. Continuous improvement and innovation for better care are not only part of the UTSW mission, but a driving force in the evolution of our clinic, which has reduced existing health disparities for an underserved population in the process. While we developed an innovative approach toward self-care, the patients have demonstrated the greater impact of tapping into human potential with effective engagement, to do something that many didn’t think they could do. I think the S-OPAT team would agree our patients are the true heroes here. We just gave them the opportunity to shine.”
