Indispensable or Irrelevant: A rugged survival guide for medical specialists who want to stay independent
This powerful white paper was written for large and small medical practices that are determined to stay independent, despite the monumental changes occurring in healthcare today.Make no mistake about it: the road ahead for those who refuse to capitulate won’t be easy.

If you and your colleagues are determined to “fight on” despite these challenges, we applaud your spirit and are here to help you.
