A Second Opinion with Senator Bill Frist, M.D.

Apr 18, 2022

Today, Dr. Peter Pronovost joins us. He is the Chief Clinical Transformation Officer at University Hospitals in Cleveland, Ohio, where he is a champion for innovation as well as patient safety and value improvement. His devotion to value improvement in this role reduced Medicare Annual expenditures by 21% over a two-year period.


Nicknamed “Dr. Checklist,” Peter garnered worldwide recognition for a patient safety checklist that he developed. And, in 2008, he received a MacArthur Foundation “Genius Grant” and was named by Time magazine as one of the “100 Most Influential People.”


In our conversation today, Peter and I talk about what it means to provide high quality care, about the necessary cultural shifts that are taking place in healthcare, about how even seemingly simple innovations can have long-lasting impacts on providing patients with better care, and about the power of our beliefs, human connection, and love in positively impacting others.
