John Scott, MD, associate professor of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the University of Washington, and member of IDSA’s Telemedicine Workgroup, has been awarded the 2015 Warren Featherstone Reid Award for Excellence in Health Care. This award honors health care providers who exhibit exceptional quality and value in the delivery of health services. Dr. Scott is receiving the award for his work with Project ECHO (Extension for Community Health Outcomes), which has brought cost-effective, quality care to many people who would otherwise be unable to access care. He has also worked to make case conferences available to rural areas of the state via videoconferencing, during times when the providers are less likely to be seeing patients.
