We’ll be discussing what’s trending in the industry now, including topics on: Understanding leading growth factors in the outpatient surgery market, finding growth opportunities in the outpatient market, and migrating your clinical protocols from an inpatient to an outpatient setting. We’ll get to the heart of these important industry highlights, and dive deeper into strategies for moving forward!
