It is no longer sufficient to recruit and onboard physicians in organizations that are moving toward the creation of integrated systems that require significant physician engagement. In this webinar, Dr. Barber will provide the science behind effective physician engagement as well as share his experience of engaging physicians. He will explain the inner workings of the physician social network in a medical community and explore how it can be used to engage physicians.
