Opportunities to Enhance Effectiveness of Physician Integration

Has your organization experienced the challenge of effectively aligning with physicians? Given the key role physicians play in your organization’s success, it’s crucial to develop and implement strategies to foster—and capitalize on—effective physician alignment.
