Podcast #245 – Dr. Tom Evans, Improving Healthcare Quality in Iowa

tom evans

Today is the first of two episodes that I'll post here during Patient Safety Awareness Week. I agree with the National Patient Safety Foundation that every day should be patient safety day.

I'm sure my guest for episode #245 would agree with that. He is Tom Evans, MD, FAAFP, the President and CEO of the Iowa Healthcare Collaborative. I've know Dr. Evans for many years, but was prompted to do the podcast by this editorial he wrote in the Des Moines Register: “Iowa hospitals succeed at keeping patients safe.”

In this episode, we talk about the progress being made in Iowa hospitals, what they are doing, and the lessons learned. Dr. Evans talks about his early days as a physician, when he often asked, “How do we do this better?” This led to his efforts to improve healthcare quality and safety and his collaboration with others.
