In this episode, Dr. Kevin Fickenscher discusses with Dr. Elliot Sternberg how changes in technology will impact healthcare quality and patient safety.

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

Regarding St. Joseph's 'Perfect Care' initiative: "What we were able to do is realize that the values of the St. Joseph Health system lined up perfectly with the aims identified by the Institute of Medicine...we would strive over the next five to 10 years to attempt to achieve care that is safe, timely, equitable, evidence-based, efficient, patient and family centered, and...Catholic as the spirituality component," stated Dr. Sternberg.

Regarding how technology enables St. Joseph in the pursuit of 'Perfect Care': "We see technology as a tremendous driver, facilitator of this effort...It's going to help us significantly in the capture of data, the analysis of data in terms of computerized physician order entry and the ability to increase owner liability of an organization by utilizing evidence based order sets. So we're counting on technology to help us significantly," stated Dr. Sternberg.

Regarding how technology will contribute to the implementation of best practices in real-time: "I'm hopeful with information technology and the ability to integrate all this (evidence-based) data into a huge clinical data repository across the entire continuum (of care) that we will be able to more quickly identify best practices from both clinical and financial outcomes and use that experiential database to real-time affect how physicians deliver care," commented Dr. Sternberg.
