Dr. Marc Dean named new assistant medical director at Harbin Clinic

Harbin Clinic in Rome, Georgia, announced recently it created three new assistant medical director positions, each focusing on an aspect of patient care or health care operations, including Oxford native Dr. Marc M. Dean.

Dean has been named as assistant medical director of clinical informatics.

With Harbin since 2006, Dean is an obstetrician/gynecologist at Harbin Clinic Women’s Center Rome.

Dean graduated from Millsaps College, obtained his medical degree from the University of Mississippi School of Medicine in Jackson, and completed his residency in OB/GYN at Alton Ochsner Medical Foundation in New Orleans, Louisiana.  He is certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Dr. Dean’s responsibilities include advising the information technology services department to ensure that systems work well across medical practices and in other vital areas such as the lab and imaging.

“We live in an age that technology affects all aspects of our lives, including medicine,” Dean said. “It is the lifeblood of any medical group and one of the benefits that Harbin patients experience. With so many new tools becoming available to patients and their providers, such as remote monitoring of diseases, telemedicine, improved electronic health records and improved ways for patients and their providers to communicate with each other, it is an exciting time in the practice of medicine.

“I hope to assist our Harbin providers in using these new and emerging tools to provide the best possible patient care and continually improving patient experience,” Dean added.
