Dr. Michael Barry of MGH is New President of Foundation for Informed Medical Decision Making
Date:8/26/2009

ster as well as a fellowship in general medicine at Harvard. He has focused much of his life's work on finding the right way to screen for and treat prostate disease and has served as the Foundation's medical editor for decision aids on these conditions. Barry has also had a long-standing commitment to improving the quality of primary health care.

Barry has created and overseen one of the original demonstration sites for shared decision-making at MGH. That pilot program, which is integrated into the primary care practices at the hospital, prescribes decision aids on a variety of medical conditions as part of a patient's treatment plan. The prescription is entered into the medical record and the decision aid is picked up by or sent to the patient, much like a prescription for a medication.

According to one patient named Don, "I needed multiple opinions, but I also didn't have a lot of time to explore that. And so I think the video for me gave me that experience of getting multiple opinions without necessarily meeting with several doctors. It just gave me a lot more knowledge as I progressed in the treatment to feel like I was doing the right thing."
