All growing health care organizations struggle for visibility. Within the vast health care universe, thousands of companies strive to be noticed as better and different than others competing in the same spaces.

The measure has yet to be applied to data from a population receiving the program. The intervention has been shown in published literature to be correlated with the impact.|
