Jeffrey H. Silber, MD, PhD holds the Nancy Abramson Wolfson Endowed Chair in Health Services Research and is Director of the Multidisciplinary Center for Outcomes Research at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and is a Professor of Pediatrics and Anesthesiology and Critical Care at the Perelman School of Medicine and Professor of Health Care Management at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Silber is an internationally known authority on outcomes measurement and severity adjustment for both adults and children. He created the adult quality of care measure, Failure-to-Rescue (FTR) in 1990 that has been adopted as three specific quality measures by the National Quality Forum (NQF). He has developed two length of stay outcome measures: Prolonged Length of Stay and Conditional Length of Stay, now applied to both pediatric and adult populations. With Paul Rosenbaum he developed the Omega measure that evaluates outcome measures by estimating the relative contribution of patient to hospital characteristics associated with a specific outcome and the method of Template Matching to compare hospital cost and quality. Much of his recent work focuses on the use of multivariate matching when comparing outcomes, specifically to problems in both pediatric and adult medicine and surgery, disparities, and cancer.
