Modern Healthcare Magazines 50 Most Influential Physician Executives award honors physician leaders who are influencing the direction of healthcare in the post-reform era. Anyone may vote, and voting is open through February 10, 2012.
Dr. T. Brian Callister has been nominated for Modern Healthcare Magazine’s 2012 50 Most Influential Physician Executives Award. Modern Healthcare Magazine stated it renamed the award program “Most Influential Physician Executives” from the former title of “50 Most Powerful Physician Executives” to “reflect the skills needed to improve the healthcare delivery system in the post-healthcare reform era. It took power to make reform happen; now it will take influence to make reform work.”
Dr. Callister has been a positive influence and physician leader on a national level as national medical director for LifeCare Hospitals for more than a dozen years. A recognized authority on long-term acute care (LTAC) hospitals, he serves on the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services Technical Expert Panels for LTAC hospitals and for inpatient rehabilitation facilities.
Quality measurement and benchmarking are both critical areas for the future of healthcare in which Dr. Callister has taken a leading role. As the Chairman of the Clinical Committee of the Acute Long Term Hospital Association (ALTHA), he pioneered the effort to develop the first LTAC industry outcome benchmark study and helped develop the post acute criteria with the American Hospital Association (AHA).
Dr. Callister has contributed as an active local voice for physicians in northern Nevada. He is the current president of the Nevada State Medical Association as well as president of the northern Nevada district for the American College of Physicians.
