2018 Winner: Javeed Siddiqui, MD, MPH
Javeed Siddiqui, MD, MPH, a pioneer in the clinical application of telemedicine to infectious diseases, is the recipient of IDSA’s 2018 Clinical Practice Innovation Award. This award recognizes members who devote the majority of their time to patient care and have, within the last five years, significantly advanced the clinical practice of infectious diseases by making innovations in clinical practice design or management, or by fostering change to better recognize the value of infectious diseases practice.
In less than a decade since co-founding TeleMed2U, a multi-specialty medical practice that is entirely telemedicine based, Dr. Siddiqui has become an authority on telemedicine and its application to the delivery of high quality ID clinical consultation and infection prevention and antimicrobial stewardship programs. His efforts have brought expert ID services to numerous hospitals and locations with no previous ID clinical presence. In 2011, Dr. Siddiqui and his practice deployed the first telemedicine-based infection preventionist program, followed by the first telemedicine-based stewardship program, which was recognized nationally by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. Currently the chief medical officer at TeleMed2U in Roseville, Calif., he serves as the medical director of telemedicine-based stewardship programs at five hospitals in the state. His achievements have demonstrated the great potential of telemedicine at a time when the ID workforce faces challenges and the specialty’s role in stewardship and infection prevention has never been more critical.
In addition to establishing his own clinical practice, Dr. Siddiqui has participated in more than 100 clinical research projects and been a co-investigator for telemedicine studies evaluating outcomes, economics, innovative applications, and new technology development. A member of IDSA’s Clinical Affairs Committee since 2013 and chair of the Society’s Workgroup on Telehealth since 2015, he has presented multiple times at IDWeek and the IDSA Clinical Fellows Meeting on the practical applications of telemedicine to ID, including how to establish a sustainable program. He has lectured at numerous conferences and workshops, and also serves as an advisor to the California Department of Public Health’s Antimicrobial Stewardship Collaborative.
The recipient of a master of public health degree from Tulane University, Dr. Siddiqui earned his medical degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia, followed by an internship and residency at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. He completed his ID fellowship training at the University of California-Davis, where he also served as an associate clinical professor of medicine and associate medical director at the Center for Health and Technology.
Dr. Siddiqui’s innovations have opened a crucial new avenue for ID physicians by allowing them to share their valuable expertise and deliver infection prevention and antimicrobial stewardship services to previously underserved hospitals and patients. The Society is delighted to recognize him with the 2018 Clinical Practice Innovation Award.
