What a Year It’s Been!

This year just seemed to fly by! In the healthcare sector, we’ve continued to experience legislative changes and updates, and with the recent elections we may see even more in the upcoming year. Instead of speculating on what’s to come, today we’re going to review some of the topics we’ve touched on in the past year, for those of you who may have missed some:
