This was a total pleasure. Yesterday I got to spend an hour talking with Dr. Brent James, one of the leaders in the patient safety movement, instituting process change in health care, and the man responsible in large part for InterMountain Healthcare’s status as the health care system known for delivering some of the best quality care in America (and the world). Brent of course was on the IOM Committee responsible for the "To Err is Human" report and is involved in the new IHI "5 Million Lives" campaign. Brent has much to say about all of that and a lot more, and it is fascinating stuff.
So for your year-end enjoyment here’s the podcast of our conversation. (A transcript will be up in a few days).
