What Hospitals Must Do to Thrive -- Not Just Survive -- on Medicare Margins

"Hospital leaders understand two immutable truths about the decade ahead: No one can repeal the aging of the Boomers onto the Medicare rolls, and caring for this population means tackling the rising costs of chronic medical conditions," says Tom Cassels, Executive Director of Research and Insights for The Advisory Board Company, a research, consulting, and technology services firm serving a membership of more than 2,900 of the world's leading health care organizations.
