  • LEVERAGING LEGACY SYSTEMS: Value Capitalization for Healthcare Today and Tomorrow

    These days, the name of the game in healthcare is value.

    And hospitals are striving to find value within their legacy systems, after investing millions of dollars over the past two decades, in a thin profit-margin industry.
