While at Mount Sinai, DuPree led a range of quality and process-improvement initiatives, including one aimed at boosting the hospital's performance on process-of-care measures included in the CMS' value-based purchasing program, according to a Joint Commission release.
In December 2011, DuPree was among 73 Innovation Advisors chosen by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation to help guide its work in delivery system reform and population health management.
Additionally, she was a physician leader in the Center for Transforming Healthcare's wrong-site surgery project, which culminated in the release in February 2012 of a tool hospitals can use to assess their risk of such surgical events, along with steps to prevent them.
Launched in 2009, the Center works collaboratively with providers to address pressing safety issues, including communication among caregivers and hand hygiene.
