Engaging Patients in Care: Addressing Quality, Cost and Satisfaction

While healthcare costs are going up, we are seeing little to indicate a good return on our healthcare dollar. The opportunity is ripe for healthcare professionals to take the lead in healthcare transformation! Learn more about a paradigm that can transform health care and bring back both "health" and "care" into your practice.

Notes to user: The speaker makes references to a subsequent presentation that is listed separately as "Evidence-Based Medicine."
