Guest: Dr. David Pryor, Chief Medical Officer for Ascension Health

Perot Systems (NYSE: PER) (http://www.perotsystems.com) 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. David Pryor some very effective techniques that have improved the quality of care at Ascension Health.

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

Regarding a team approach to care: "One of the biggest insights, is the statement that medicine is a team sport. Particularly on the in-patient setting, it seems to be about how the team is providing care, and it's no longer an individual sport," commented Dr. Pryor.

On the principle of 'subsidiarity': "We have a principle called subsidiarity, which means that the decisions should be made as close to where the actual process or issue is. It can be made so that decisions are not made at the highest levels of the organization, but at the actual levels of the organization that's most appropriate, where the most knowledgeable people are going to be making the right decision," stated Dr. Pryor.

These highlights along with several other powerful insights from Dr. Pryor can be found at the link below.
