“Bill is well deserving of this prestigious recognition for his leadership in helping create a statewide disease event tracking system and the Public Health and Hospital Collaborative,” NCMS EVP, CEO Robert W. Seligson said. “These advancements contribute greatly to the quality of care given our citizens and to the public health of our great state.”
The Collaborative is a public-private partnership between the Division of Public Health, NCHA, the NC Institute for Public Health and the NC Center for Health Quality that has developed standards for community health assessments as required for non-profit hospitals by the federal health care reform law and the Public Health Exchange.
