Eric Hume, MD, FAAOS, FACS
Medical Director of the Quality and Safety Department of Orthopaedic Surgery , Perelman School of Medicine @Penn Medicine
Dr. Hume is also an Associate Professor of Clinical Orthopaedic Surgery, and Attending Orthopaedic Surgeon at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. As a clinician committed to quality, he has found opportunities to build evidence-based safe processes shared across the service line. He has grown an interdisciplinary group of clinical and non-clinical colleagues focused on lowering perioperative risk for hip and knee arthroplasty patients and managing large hip and knee bundles, BPCI now BPCI-A and IBC, across Penn Medicine campuses. His research and innovation include Home Connect and Quil, both aimed arthroplasty patient preop education and postop discharge to home safely. He manages program-awarded Joint Commission Hip and Knee Certificates. Most satisfying to him is supporting the career growth of members of the outcomes group, and the success that improving quality and safety leads to less expensive care within a bundle structure.
