The alienation of distance and time can fracture collaboration and results. Translating the brand, standards, and shared experience across centers, defying distance through the use of technology, and defined standards can be an enormous undertaking. A spirit of engagement with a well-defined professional practice model to improve patient outcomes and fiscal efficiencies is key. The drive towards sustainable results in volume, quality, service, and engagement is based on consistent structure, process, and technology enhancement.
