PART 1 OF 5: PRE-REGISTRATION & TELEHEALTH CONSENT STRATEGY

As the health care industry faces historic financial losses and a recession due to the COVID-19 pandemic, hospital leaders must quickly identify value-focused initiatives and seek out the financial resources to fund them. While hospital project budgets are at risk of being cut, we can proactively look back at the last recession for gaps and where to invest.

The poignant words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. give humble guidance on where to reflect on the past to shape the future: “We are not makers of history. We are made by history.”
