Biography

Dr. Stephen E. Prather is a frequent national speaker on the importance of achieving the "Integrative Quality" culture needed to ensure safe care and cooperation between patients, physicians, and staff. Getting professionals to help each other improve across the boundaries that make-up the health care system has become the critical imperative for hospital-based care. Integrative Quality is the new IQ and now defines the intelligent path to the highest quality care.

The author of two complementary books, Behavioral Types and the Art of Patient Management, and The New Health Partners, Renewing the Leadership of Physician Practice, Dr. Prather provides a road map that goes beyond patient satisfaction and efficiency to raise the system's IQ. New information focused on the diversity of the patients and professionals is now a strength that can be used to build a new more powerful integrative performance model.

The financial need for integrative quality to unite competing service lines separating the medical professionals from the rest of the organization has reached a crisis proportion. Patient Safety and error reduction must move from safety nets that catch errors to IQ models that prevent them. It is time to raise the performance IQ through needed communication within a community of Quality.

Dr. Prather is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists and has served as a member of the Medical Advisory Panel for the Pew Health Profession Commission at Duke University. He practiced for 12 years and was the president of his own Medical Quality Improvement consulting company before joining Avatar as the Chief Medical Officer. His primary goal is to help hospitals, physicians, patients, and communities reinvent Healthcare under the unique approach that defines Integrative Quality. Raising the system's IQ has never been more important.
