Even before Congress passed the Affordable Care Act, the actual process of reforming our healthcare system was already taking place at locales throughout the country.  In all sectors of American healthcare, we’re seeing innovators who are developing new and better ways of delivering high-quality, cost-effective care to patients.

The publication SmartBusiness spotlighted one of these innovators, Barry Arbuckle, Ph.D., the president and CEO of the MemorialCare Health System in southern California.  In an interview, Dr. Arbuckle discussed how physicians in the MemorialCare system are practicing evidence-based medicine that is bringing about patient outcomes that “frequently exceed state and national averages for most diseases.”

In the interview, Dr. Arbuckle, a member of the Healthcare Leadership Council, also discussed the critical role of electronic patient records and offers advice for employers on the questions they need to ask to ensure the best possible healthcare for their employees.

The theme of best practice, evidence-based medicine is one we’re going to hear about frequently as the nation’s healthcare system continues to transform itself.
