Congratulations to Dr. Sacha Bhatia on receiving an Ontario Clinician-Scientist Award from the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.

Dr. Bhatia is the director of Women’s College Hospital Institute for Health System Solutions and Virtual Care (WIHV), a cardiologist at Women’s College Hospital and a scientist at Women’s College Research Institute. The funding will support his study assessing whether or not more echocardiograms result in better cardiovascular health outcomes. The research team will link data from more than 16,000 echocardiograms done in Ontario to data about health outcomes from the Institute for Clinical and Evaluative Sciences, analyzing the quantity and frequency of tests in connection with health outcomes.

Dr. Bhatia is the national Evaluation Lead for Canada’s Choosing Wisely Campaign — an effort to help clinicians and patients engage in conversations about unnecessary tests and treatments to reduce harm and improve care, while saving our healthcare system money.
