Presentation at the IOM

Earlier this year we had the privilege to present our ideas to Senior U.S. Healthcare Leaders at the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) Roundtable meeting on Value and Science-Driven Health Care in Washington, DC. The IOM Roundtable meeting brings together leaders from across the healthcare industry that share a common goal of changing the roles for patients, families and the public.
