Fierce Healthcare June 28, 2022
“Return” has become a popular word across the globe of late. Return to the office, return to travel, return to going out to eat and sporting events, return to our pre-COVID lives…the list goes on.
As our world adjusts to the new normal, the healthcare industry is moving beyond emergency triage to managing today’s top challenges, including staff shortages, supply chain and cost issues, as well as disruptions in their economic revenue models.
