In the end, all Dr. Prasad’s research prompted him to a create SurgiQuality, a concierge system which helps handhold patients as their records are sent to multiple surgeons within their network. These cases are presented without race and ethnicity demographic information. Using the system, surgeons make decisions more objectively and patients are empowered with tools to make well-informed decisions.
“I want people to realize that we have a serious quality issue in medicine today,” says Dr. Prasad. “The healthcare system must be held accountable. I firmly believe that SurgiQuality plays a key role in helping patients regain control of the healthcare process, empowering them with the tools to make well-informed, health-positive decisions.”
