Jennifer Beloff, MSN, RN, APN, serves as vice president of Quality in the Department of Quality and Safety.
A nurse practitioner with nearly two decades of experience in health care quality and safety, Beloff is responsible for the operational management, strategic planning and performance on all commercial, state and federally funded pay-for-reporting (P4R) and pay-for-performance (P4P) programs.
Additionally, she oversees management of and performance improvement efforts associated with a growing body of publicly reported metrics included in external quality reporting organizations, local/state government agencies, and medical boards and associations.
Beloff joined the Brigham in 2008, first as a senior consultant in the Center for Clinical Excellence, where she led a number of multidisciplinary teams and collaborated with hospital leadership and clinical staff to identify and eliminate barriers to appropriate care and strategized and implemented hospital-wide interventions to achieve greater compliance with a multitude of clinical quality measures. Four years later, she was promoted to director and, subsequently, executive director of Quality Programs.
In collaboration with the Department of Surgery, the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine, and the Department of Nursing, Beloff helped establish and provided executive oversight of the Clinical Pathways division within the Department of Quality and Safety in 2017. The team successfully developed and implemented Enhanced Recovery after Surgery pathways (ERAS) and one Enhanced Recovery after Delivery (ERAD) pathway throughout the Brigham. The program has not only led to standardization in clinical care but has helped reduce surgical and postoperative complications and reduced length of stay. That same year, Beloff also assumed executive oversight for the Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) Program at the Brigham, a team that ensures that the clinical complexity of patients is accurately and adequately documented in the medical record to ensure optimal reimbursement and risk-adjustment.
Prior to the Brigham, Beloff worked at Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, N.J., as a nurse, nurse practitioner and clinical quality specialist.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in English from Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Penn. She earned her bachelor’s and master’s nursing degrees from Pace University in Pleasantville, N.Y.
