What’s more, the FUGs—Fear, Uncertainty, Greed—get in the way of you “seeing, feeling, thinking and doing” in new ways. As well as presenting ways to successfully innovate to respond to the dramatic changes confronting your organization, the co-hosts shared practical tools for getting rid of the “FUGs” so businesses can get moving again.

Created to help healthcare executives, physicians and administrators better understand the enormous changes occurring in the healthcare industry today, this webinar series promises to help healthcare institutions, staff, physicians and even patients adapt to changing times. Dr. Simon and an outstanding panel of experts will share what they see happening out in the field as they address key issues that are emerging to transform the way we access and deliver healthcare in the U.S.
