All in the Family

Recorded On: 05/17/2018

Topic: The Value of Strong Relationships with the Medical Director and Medical Providers in Achieving Desired Clinical and Performance Outcomes

Medical directors and medical providers are often treated as visitors to a building. In this webinar we will discuss the value of inviting them to “join the family.” We will discuss how this shift in perspective helps break down many of the traditional barriers to achieving excellent clinical outcomes.
