Hospital CEO’s eager to talk

I have found the data from the Hospital Performance and Post-Acute Flow profiles to be very valuable and relevant with providers. When I have shared data with hospital CEO’s, they are eager and open as they analyzed their own data. Often, the CEO has shared additional information and insights with me explaining their business and why the data varied from year to year. This has helped me understand their business even more and given me additional insights as to how I can best position our organization as a key strategic partner.
