Clinical Corners

With today’s ever evolving standards of care and focus on proper utilization, it is imperative that clinicians have access to the most up to date and relevant clinical information.  Clinical Corners are brief commentary on hot topics such as clinical information on chronic diseases. With this, our second quarterly update, we include our most recent released Clinical Corners topics as well as future topics. Keeping the provider informed yet being respectful of time and work/life balance is a major juggling act.
