Baron, MD, MACP, president and CEO of the American Board of Internal Medicine and ABIM Foundation, discussed how loss of trust can put patient safety in jeopardy, why transparency – both when things go right and wrong – is critical to building trust, and how lessons learned from the Building Trust initiative can lead to measurable improvements in quality.
