Perot Systems continues its series of podcasts with a forward-looking discussion about the increasing role Information Technology will play in the transformation of healthcare. In this episode, Dr. Kevin Fickenscher discusses with Dr. William Stead the level of investment in technology by healthcare providers, as well as what changes he sees in the future for the healthcare industry.

The following quotes from Dr. Stead are highlights of the podcast:

On how technology should be used to improve quality and lower costs: "I think that we need to use approaches to using the technology that work at a macro system level. It's using data mining statistical approaches if you will to identify information about patients that we need to use in decision support," stated Dr. Stead.
