Healthcare’s “Copernican” Revolution Upends Strategy and Practices

“In our view, the health care industry is now currently embarking on a radical “Copernican Revolution.” So says an article in MedCity News. You remember Copernicus—he’s the one who proposed a model of the universe that put the sun, not Earth, at its center.
