AACC 2019 Booth Presentation: Back to Our Roots: The Healing Power of Ethical Business Strategies

People working in healthcare sometimes find that health goals, such as patient welfare, conflict with the goals of the parent organization, such as financial gain. But when value extraction becomes the priority, ethics suffer. Is it possible for organizations to maintain an ethical environment without sacrificing profitability? Dr. Jackson will explain how the healthcare industry can get back to its ethical roots through organizational transparency and accountability.

Originally presented on August 7, 2019 in Anaheim, California.
