Great for medical practices and other healthcare professionals

I’m new to healthcare and medical practices and needed a podcast that could help give me a jumpstart on my education to the industry. This one delivers what I need, helping me gain insight on regulatory issues, leadership strategies, tools to measure and benchmark outcomes, and tips on patient access and engagement, among others. It’s a great listen for my morning commute.
