Reliable and useful information

This podcast touches on all things big picture healthcare. HCR is a great listen for anyone who is looking for content around value-based care and advancing our American health system. With great interview guests and engaging conversations, this pod is a must listen for every Friday morning.

Insightful and informative

Anyone who's interested in learning more about what's going on with the American health care system and what can be done to help improve it will benefit from listening to these podcasts by Darwin Research Group — whether it's the weekly news updates DRG offers or John Marchica's interviews with special guests from within the industry. I particularly enjoyed listening to the one with Dr. Pearl. There's SO much about our health care system that the average person doesn't know about ... but these podcasts are an easy (and enjoyable!) way to be better informed.
