Internists play a pivotal role in our healthcare system, but it is becoming increasingly difficult for internal medicine practices to stay profitable. Mounting industry pressures like declining reimbursements, escalating costs, ICD-10, and growing administrative burdens are distracting physicians from patient care and causing widespread physician dissatisfaction.

In "5 Tech Trends Driving Success for Internal Medicine Practices," you'll learn about five critical technologies that help internists run their practices more efficiently, profitably, and enjoyably.
