How Effective Partnerships Support Exceptional, Cost-Effective Healthcare

What You’ll Learn from This Whitepaper

American healthcare is undergoing a transformation. Changing demographics, technological developments, and new policy measures have all affected the way we deliver and pay for care. Perhaps nowhere are these changes more evident than in the practice of surgery. Operating rooms have long been a major source of revenue for healthcare providers.
