Consumer-Friendly Healthcare Model

Best-selling Author Og Mandino once said:  “Always seek out the seed of triumph in every adversity.” It appears that a small, yet growing number of America’s front line health providers are doing just that. Instead taking on increased risk, greater healthcare bureaucracy and more administration headaches, these medical mavericks have drawn a philosophical line in […]

This includes effective machine learning and neural networks and a promise of greater pattern recognition, data analysis, “general thinking,” decision-making and efficiency.   Until recently, a large […]

Premiums continue their upward surge. More Americans […]
