As organizations transition through this next iteration of the pandemic and think about how to position themselves for 2022, physician and executive leadership continues to be a top priority.

It is imperative to understand what will be expected of those leaders, the requirements they must satisfy, and how they should position themselves and their organizations for success. In this episode of Value-Based Care Insights, Daniel J. Marino speaks to Dr. Cheri Olsen of IPMA and Doug McKinley of the Lumina Leadership Institute to discuss the need for a collaborative leadership model.

Trending White Paper
This month our most popular download resource was HIPAA Compliant Developer Guide by Atlantic.Net

The intended audience of this ebook is those concerned with software development across the entire spectrum. That includes readers who are taking on their first project that involves the need for a federally compliant (i.e., legal) healthcare environment, as well as people who have built medical apps in the past and just need a refresher on core concepts and terminology. It includes developers and those who are managing development teams.
