  • David W. Bates, MD, MSc

Policy changes are placing new pressures on primary care, but there’s still lots to learn about safety outside the hospital. David Bates, MD, MSc, a renowned patient safety researcher and practicing PCP, explores which lessons from inpatient care can be transferred to the outpatient setting, and how EHRs can help and hinder PCPs.

Dr. Bates was a featured presenter at Best Medical Practices, a day-long educational program held in October 2018 in Boston and sponsored by CRICO.
