1. To Care is Human, by The Beryl Institute

 “Let’s say we have the best patient satisfaction… we got the best rankings…None of that matters to the next patient. So, the next patient who shows up doesn’t really care what you did for the last guy. They care ‘what are you going to do for my family?’ And so it’s this constant need to be focused on that very next patient because you’re being tested again.” – Dr. David Feinberg

The Beryl Institute’s To Care Is Human podcast is hosted by President and CEO Jason Wolf, Ph. D.

The first episode features an interview with Dr. David Feinberg, VP Healthcare at Google Health, focusing on the human experience.
