I was reading your interview with great interest.The problems facing independent hospitals is going to escalate exponentially in the near future. Large operations with expensive equipment and specialist are going to further try to invade their territory. My company over the years has developed systems to address this issues on a competitive basis and keep independent hospitals in charge of their patient flow. Leverage is the only thing that the giants will understand and independent hospitals have the ability to use this against them. As we speak we are implementing a system in which the local hospital will be able to keep control of their patients and be the ones to decide where this traffic is going to go if there is need for better technical expertise or just retain it if there is no such need.
