Healthcare Trends in 2012: A Strategic Industry Forecast

Excerpt from presentation by Steven Valentine, president of The Camden Group:

"Strategic planners should really be focused on broadening the reach to capture as much population that they intend to manage. If we were doing this conference in 3, 4, or 5 years from now, we would be talking about our market share as a percent of the population we're responsible for, versus the number of discharges we look at."
