Neuroscience Service Lines Strategies
Webcast on CD or On-Demand
presented on April 22, 2010
The neurosciences cover a vast field of healthcare that addresses a variety of patient needs and requires your hospital to provide a suite of sub-specialty areas of treatment. As innovations allow for increased competition, you need specific strategies to strengthen your position in the market, build brand loyalty, and differentiate yourself from the competition.
