The High-Performing Surgical Program
Surgical services are under increasing pressure to be as clinically and operationally efficient as possible. Given a reimbursement model based on outcomes, not volume, only those surgical services that can deliver state-of the-art care, value, and an outstanding patient experience will survive.
