From his perspective as head of Permanente Medical Group, Robert Pearl is responsible for the health care that is delivered to more than 4 million Kaiser Permanente members in the states of California, Virginia, Maryland and in Washington, D.C. Pearl says he has definitely seen his share of medical errors. He points out that American health care is in the bottom half of all industrialized countries, where every year hundreds of people die from medical errors and thousands die from diseases they did not have to get. Join us for a frank discussion on how to eliminate excessive costs, lack of convenience and poor quality health care and ultimately modernize and save the American health care industry.
