D. Scott Williamson Jr., CAE, has been named the president of Quality Outcomes, a Virginia company specializing in documenting health care outcomes for users of prosthetics, orthotics and durable medical equipment.
Williamson is responsible for Quality Outcomes’ comprehensive performance management program, a process that identifies best practices in patient care and meets the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Performance Management requirements for accreditation.
“Quality Outcomes has been working with health care providers since 2006, but its market focus was creating customized manuals for practitioners to document their policies and procedures to demonstrate compliance with CMS requirements. But we are shifting our emphasis to assisting our clients with maintaining their accreditation through performance management,” Williamson said.
Williamson is an active member of the Healthcare Community Committee of the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) and prior to joining Quality Outcomes, he was the director of facility accreditation at the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics since 2002. He has worked with professional certification programs since 1990 and has been a key liaison between the orthotic and prosthetic profession and CMS during the development of the CMS DMEPOS mandatory accreditation program.
Williamson received his Master’s of Business Administration Degree from the University of Richmond – Robins School of Business, and an undergraduate degree in management economics from Hampden-Sydney (Va.) College. In 2005, he earned his Certified Association Executive credentials from ASAE.
