The energy around the acquisition and affiliation game has never been stronger. The impetus stems from the increasing complexity of healthcare, the ability to drive efficiencies in the back office by leveraging technology, and the push to cut costs. It's also about reducing duplication of services.

You’ll learn strategies for success, including investment priorities and best practices from leading organizations, such as:
