Midland Lecture

Tuesday, April 2 7:30 am to 9:30 am
The Faculty Club, Grand Lounge
181 Oval Drive South
The Midland Lecture Series brings distinguished commentators on health care issues to OSU. This year's event will feature Brent C. James, MD, MStat, of Intermountain Healthcare System.

Brent James is the recently retired Chief Quality Officer and Executive Director of the Institute for Health Care Delivery at Intermountain Healthcare. Dr. James is known internationally for his work to improve patient care while reducing the cost of treatment. He is a member of the National Academy of Medicine and has received numerous national recognitions, including Modern Healthcare’s “100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare." Dr. James currently holds faculty appointments at the University of Utah, T.H. Chan Harvard School of Public Health and Stanford University School of Medicine.

Dr. James will discuss ways in which quality theory – which demonstrates that waste elimination links directly to better quality outcomes – can be successfully translated into action. He will present examples of value-driving strategies that can link directly to care delivery, and will consider the challenge: “Who makes the investment to improve clinical quality that takes out waste, and who gets the resulting savings?”

Parking will be complimentary and is available at the Ohio Union North and South garages.

This event is part of the College of Public Health’s National Public Health Week.
