A Message to Faculty from Dr. Hoi Ho

Hoi Ho

Faculty are the most valuable asset of any academic institution. Their contributions and   accomplishments are essential not only for the career advancement but also for the organization to achieve its vision and mission. However, documenting and reporting accurately faculty productivity remains a cumbersome task laden with inaccuracy and inefficiency.

Digital Measures (DM) is a user-friendly, customizable web-based data management software designed to help the faculty to organize and generate report on scholarly activities including teaching, clinical productivity, publications, and scientific presentations as well as clinical service and academically-related public service.

The completion of data entry into the Digital Measures is critically important for several essential functions including the annual faculty evaluation, the pre- tenure- promotion, the tenure-promotion, ACGME reports, and the preparation for LCME and SACS accreditation. DM is a continuing process; and August 30th, 2014 is the deadline for completing the first phase of DM data entry (data from July 1st, 2012 to June 30th, 2013)

To minimize interruption of faculty work schedule, the Office of Faculty Affairs & Development has developed multiple tutorials, learning modules and roadmaps to assist faculty members and their assisting staff in completing the Digital Measures. In addition, to enhance efficiency and accuracy of the data entry, we have developed automated tools to import data from other sources into the Digital Measures.

The Office of Faculty Affairs & Development has scheduled several workshops at each department to assist the faculty and supporting staff in populating the DM, and to answer questions related to the DM as well as those that are specific to each faculty member. Even with the help of supporting staff, it's the faculty responsibility to verify accuracy and completeness of the data.

The Office of Faculty Affairs & Development will provide technical support for the training of faculty and supporting staff in completing the DM project. We are looking forward to working with all of you in this important and exciting project. Please do not hesitate to contact us for questions or technical support.

Hoi Ho, M.D.

Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs and Development
