Kathleen Carberry: Writing the Book on Healthcare Outcomes

Episode Summary

We were joined by Kathleen Carberry, Assistant Professor at the Dell Medical School and Outcomes Program Officer at the Value Institute for Health and Care. She has been a registered nurse for 20 years and was the founder and director of the Texas Children’s Hospital Outcomes & Impact Service that was dedicated to helping patients, families, and clinicians make better healthcare decisions using outcomes information. Our hosts for this episode, Steven Cutbirth (who is also Kathleen’’s former student!) and Stephanie Pawlowski, discuss why measuring healthcare outcomes is so hard, the importance of value-based care, and why she is committed to improving the support system for caregivers.
