Live From New York…

The CEO of New York Presbyterian Hospital, Dr. Herb Pardes, recently conducted an interview with a New York news/talk program, Digital Age.  It’s well worth watching.

Dr. Pardes, a Healthcare Leadership Council member, does a superb job spelling out the impact health information technology is having on healthcare delivery.  He also lays out a strong case for national medical liability reform, describing the difference between his state and Texas, where legislators have enacted tort reform.  And, he delineates the positive aspects of the new healthcare reform law, while pointing out those provisions, including the creation of an Independent Payment Advisory Board, that need revisiting.
