David Zalut, MD, a physician with the Kennedy Health Alliance – Voorhees, was recently recognized by the New Jersey Primary Care Research Network for outstanding contributions to the future of practice-based research at the New Jersey Academy of Family Physicians (NJAFP) conference in Atlantic City, NJ. Dr. Zalut was recognized for his participation in a study by the New Jersey Primary Care Research Network (NJPCRN) about the impact of Electronic Medical Records on patient care. His medical practice is one of only 23 state-wide recognized for their research efforts.
“We are fortunate to have a visionary physician like Dr. Zalut as part of the Kennedy Health Alliance,” said Dr. Carman Ciervo, Senior Vice President for Clinical & Population Health Services. “Dr. Zalut recognized the need for the Electronic Medical Record long before the current mandate.”
The NJPCRN is a practice-based research network of nearly 120 primary care practices in all 21 New Jersey counties, with more than 300 physicians and about 750,000 patients statewide. The Network serves as a “laboratory” for observational and intervention studies led by researches from Family Medicine and other departments at Robert Wood John Medical School and New Jersey Medical School, as well as investigators from Rutgers’ Cancer Institute of New Jersey.
A board-certified Family Medicine physician and a member of the Kennedy Health Alliance since 2011, Dr. Zalut is a 1982 graduate of the Medical College of Philadelphia, and completed his residency at Abington Memorial Hospital in Abington, Pa.
A member of the Kennedy University Hospital Medical Staff, Dr. Zalut is a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Practice and has been named a “Top Doc” by several regional publications, including Philadelphia Magazine (three years, including 2013) South Jersey, and SJ magazines, in both physician and patient polls.
