Our infrastructure, especially our IPC-Link(R) technology, will contribute significantly to HOA's ability to deliver excellent quality patient care, while adding value to its existing clients. We see near-term opportunities to leverage HOA's relationships as well as implement our full-time hospitalist model in select Florida facilities."
