I am amazed at the success that independent practices have had in keeping their operations up and running in an environment that is promoting dependency. As government regulations and payer reimbursement plans are changing, responsibilities continue to rise within these practices and revenue slowly decreases. It concerns me when I think about the frustrations that these practices feel.
I have always had a passion to connect the right people with the right services for the best outcomes. AXIA has given me the opportunity to do something that I feel strongly about and partner with fellow healthcare workers to bring value to both practices and patients.
