Dr. Kendall Hall Joins Abt Associates To Help Federal Clients Improve Patient Safety and Care Quality

Rockville, Md.  –  Dr. Kendall K. Hall has joined Abt Associates as a principal associate in its Health & Environment Division. Dr. Hall has nearly 20 years of experience developing and managing patient safety and quality improvement initiatives. This includes serving as a medical officer at the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), where she assisted in the development of their healthcare-associated infections program. Dr. Hall also has led large-scale initiatives in general patient safety, emergency care, and measure development for several HHS agencies.

Leveraging her experience as both a physician and health services researcher, Dr. Hall will be supporting Abt clients such as AHRQ, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to promote quality improvement and patient safety in health care.

“Like Abt, Kendall’s work is both grounded in evidence and patient-centered practices and she has a long history with several of our clients, including AHRQ and CMS,” said Sara Galantowicz, who leads Abt’s Health Policy practice.  “Her experience as a physician will add a valuable perspective to our efforts.” 

Dr. Hall comes to Abt from IMPAQ International, where she was a Managing Director in the Health Division. She provided oversight for a variety of IMPAQ’s projects related to patient safety and quality improvement.
