Bruce Lee Hall, MD, PhD, MBA, FACS

American College of Surgeons’ (ACS) nominee Bruce Lee Hall, MD, PhD, MBA, FACS, was recently appointed co-chair of the National Quality Forum’s (NQF) Admissions and Readmissions Standing Committee. The NQF is a multi-stakeholder, not-for-profit organization that builds consensus on national priorities and goals for performance improvement.

The expert panel will review measures addressing length of stay and all-cause admissions and hospital readmissions from applicable settings and will conduct an ad hoc review of the hospital-wide, all-cause, unplanned readmissions measure.

Dr. Hall is professor of surgery at Washington University School of Medicine; professor of health care administration at Washington University’s Olin Business School; vice-president of patient-centered outcomes for BJC Healthcare in St. Louis, MO; and associate director of the ACS National Surgical Quality Improvement Program. He also has served on other NQF committees, including the Hospital-wide Readmission Measure Steering Committee and the Planned Readmissions Measures Technical Expert Review Committee.
