Levy on transparency
BIDMC President and CEO Paul Levy had a conversation with WBUR-FM's Robin Young on Here and Now today.
It's been a year since BIDMC announced a plan to eliminate preventable medical errors within four years.
One of the ways it's being done is by talking about those mistakes on his blog and with the media.
Levy says transparency will help control costs, but critics say the information will only upset patients.
