Why Integration Matters – Our New Healthcare Environment
Today’s patients are more demanding – and rightly so! Thanks to advances in technology and communication, the patient of today wants and expects exceptional customer service, high-quality services, and low-cost care. Healthcare must be centered on the patient’s wants and needs, no longer delivered at the convenience of the provider. With patients paying a larger portion of their healthcare bills they are motivated and empowered to expect results on their terms. Hear more about how interdisciplinary cooperation can you help you deliver in this consumer driven market.
