Paul Levy, CEO of Beth Israel Deaconess (BID) medical center, discusses transparency at BID and across the health sector. He describes the resistance he initially faced when BID began publishing its clinical results, and then argues that the major value of transparency in the health sector is to help the industry get a better view of itself, thereby learning how to give better care to patients.

Particularly for an academic medical center such as BID, Levy explains, transparency around clinical results, balanced with respect for patient privacy, should be a strong part of its mission.  In fact, more data within the industry should be made public, he argues.
