We have an overwhelming amount of information available to us at any time… about our team, our partners, our customers, our providers, our patients. We try to focus, every day, on understanding what information each of them needs to make better decisions, save money and improve their health and how we can deliver that information to each of them at the right time in a convenient and useful way. That may be high tech, low tech or no tech depending on the needs and preferences of the individual.
