Quality Expert Blanton Godfrey Predicts “Big Winners and Losers” After Health Reform
Sacramento Bee

International quality and productivity expert Blanton Godfrey, co-founder with Don Berwick of the National Demonstration Project for Quality Improvement in Healthcare that later evolved into the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), predicts healthcare reform will produce “big winners and big losers” among the nation’s 5,000-plus hospitals.

In a recent keynote address at TeleTracking Technologies 2011 Annual Client Conference, Godfrey told the record crowd in attendance that hospitals should take a page from industrial engineering and plan their workflow better as a way to maintain the quality of care and reduce the cost.
