Society of Insurance Research and Fletcher/CSI Create First Forum for Research Professionals in the Health Insurance Industry

INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Research professionals from the health insurance industry now have a dedicated community of practice in which to network, participate in continuing education coursework, and ensure best practice application of research initiatives within their organizations.
