Dr. Albert Wu, a professor in the department of health policy and management at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, has been selected for the 2019 Patient Reported Outcomes Measures (PROMs) Career Achievement Prize by Health Assessment Lab/Medical Outcomes Trust.
Dr. Wu is director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Services and Outcomes Research (CHSOR), director of the Master of Applied Science in Patient Safety and Healthcare Quality, and editor-in-chief of the Journal of Patient Safety and Risk Management. Dr. Wu has joint appointments in the Bloomberg School’s departments of epidemiology and international health, in medicine and surgery at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and at the Johns Hopkins Carey School of Business.
The award is named in honor of Health Assessment Lab/Medical Outcomes Trust’s founders, Dr. John E. Ware Jr. and Dr. Alvin Tarlov — two of the world’s leading pioneers in the development and use of patient-reported outcome measures.
