"The first narrative that is holding us back, is that we accept harm as the norm and not preventable." – Peter J. Pronovost, M.D., Ph.D.

The stories we tell are the most potent force for change for they define how we act in the world. Healthcare is telling several stories that are holding us back from improving value. Come hear how we, together, can tell new narratives that success in healthcare evolves from healing in hospital to healthy at home.

Peter J. Pronovost, M.D., Ph.D. is a world-renowned patient safety champion, critical care physician, a prolific researcher, and a global thought leader, informing United States and global health policy. His scientific work leveraging checklists to reduce catheter-related bloodstream infections has saved thousands of lives and earned him high-profile accolades, including being named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by TIME, receiving a coveted MacArthur Foundation “genius grant," and regularly recognized as one of the most influential executives and physician executives in healthcare.

In October of 2018, Dr. Pronovost became the Chief Clinical Transformation Officer at University Hospitals responsible for strategic initiatives to improve value across the health system.
