Workgroups will tap into the most current research on medical management and create tools and resources for treating a condition, such as hypertension or acute sinusitis. These physician leaders will also communicate with their peers on changing guidelines and recommendations, while spearheading initiatives across the network that create proven methods for treating patients.
