NEW YORK, Dec. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- While the healthcare reform discussion continues and incremental changes occur, medical practices must prepare for an eventual significant increase in patients, as more Americans obtain healthcare coverage and seek quality care. Dr. Sharon Fleishman, senior manager, clinical products and research at Phreesia, will share her expertise and recommendations about how to prepare for healthcare reform at "The Changing Business of Healthcare: The What, When's and How's for 2011."
