Dee W. Ford, MD, MSCR, is a Professor of Medicine in the Medical University of South Carolina’s Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine.  Her clinical focus is critical care and her research focus includes palliative/end-of-life care, quality improvement, and reducing health disparities in critical care.  Dr. Ford is the Medical Director for MUSC’s Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU) and is a champion of quality improvement and patient safety initiatives. She is widely recognized for her collaborative and multi-disciplinary approach to improving the care of critically ill patients and their families. Her efforts are characterized by novel program and implementation, elevating performance to better meet patient/family needs, and facilitating the professional development of others.

Dr. Ford became active in telehealth in 2009 and was tapped by MUSC leadership in 2013 to develop a strategic plan for accelerating MUSC’s telehealth programs. She serves as the Medical Director of the Tele-ICU and ICU Innovations Critical Care Outreach programs.  MUSC’s Tele-ICU is a cornerstone service that currently supports six South Carolina community hospital ICUs. Collaborating with site champions at South Carolina community hospital ICUs, MUSC’s ICU Innovations is comprised of an interdisciplinary outreach education and quality improvement team who conduct on-site, quarterly seminars for interdisciplinary ICU teams.

Dr. Ford has recently taken on a new role as Program Director for MUSC’s HRSA designation as a national Center of Excellence for telehealth. As a Center of Excellence (COE), MUSC will fill important gaps in the national telehealth landscape through a combination of ongoing regional and national collaborations and proactive dissemination of telehealth resources.  The COE will address the following objectives:
1) the impact of telehealth on federal and local healthcare spending
2) provider and patient engagement in telehealth, and
3) open access network evaluation and best practice dissemination

Dr. Ford is from Anderson, South Carolina, and received her BS in biology from the University of South Carolina where she was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa.  She received her MD from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society.  Dr. Ford completed her internal medicine residency training at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and her pulmonary/critical care fellowship training at the Medical University of South Carolina.
