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:
