As Associate Professor in Medicine-Infectious Diseases at UT Southwestern Medical Center and Chief of Infection Prevention at Parkland, Dr. Sreeramoju has led quality, safety, and process improvement efforts related to healthcare-associated infections and sepsis mortality, and accelerated training and research in infection-related quality and safety. Key accomplishments during her 10-year tenure in the University of Texas system have been reduction in several HAI in hospitals she served, implementation of prevention programs including hand hygiene and healthcare personnel vaccination programs, enhancement of data infrastructures, and establishment of training programs in healthcare epidemiology. She is currently leading the RITE (Reduce Infections Together in Everyone) program, an 1115 waiver initiative at Parkland. Her areas of expertise include implementation science, outcomes evaluation, hospital safety culture, horizontal adaptive interventions such as positive deviance, and quality improvement, patient safety, and epidemiology of healthcare-associated infections.
She chairs the infection prevention and control committee at Parkland and serves on several national and regional quality and safety committees including the education committee of the American College of Medical Quality, the public policy and government affairs committee of the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America, and the Texas Medical Association Council for Quality and Patient Safety. She is a recipient of the Outstanding Infectious Diseases teacher of the Year award in 2011. She has been featured in the Women in Medicine series in 2014 by the Dallas Medical Journal. She has been named as one of the "Top 50 leaders in Patient Safety in 2015" by Becker’s Hospital Review. Her work was instrumental in placing Parkland in the National Honor Roll for Patient Safety. She has mentored several residents, fellows, and students during her career. Her work has been published in peer-reviewed healthcare epidemiology, infection control, and surgery journals.
