The medical director for Progressive Medical, Inc. has been named as a 2013 Best Doctors in America®. Robert L. Hall, M.D., advises the pharmacy benefits manager and ancillary services provider on clinical and rehabilitation guidelines to promote recovery for those with work- or auto-related injuries. He also offers counsel on processes to identify and reduce prescription drug misuse and abuse that is a growing concern for the workers’ compensation industry.

Only about 5 percent of physicians in the United States are included in the Best Doctors database. They are chosen through an exhaustive peer-review survey that asks: “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer them?,” as well as additional research conducted by Best Doctors.

“Dr. Hall’s unique blend of experience in physical medicine and injury claims management has allowed us to evolve our clinical services to improve outcomes,” said Tron Emptage, chief clinical officer for Progressive Medical. “We’re honored to share with our clients and our industry the leadership of a physician who has been consistently recognized by his peers as being among the best in his field.”

Hall, who has been a member of this prestigious physician community since 2009, will showcase his expertise at the National RX Drug Abuse Summit in Orlando next week. He will co-present on the value of integrating analytics with robust clinical programs to successfully catch and redirect “at-risk” workers' compensation claims early in their lifecycle.

Hall is board-certified in both physical medicine and rehabilitation and electrodiagnostic medicine and began working with Progressive Medical in 2010. He is also the medical director for the Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Center at Columbus’ Mount Carmel West Hospital and maintains an outpatient practice focused on electromyography, stroke rehabilitation and musculoskeletal medicine.
