By 2030, half the U.S. population is projected to be obese, and nearly 25% will be severely obese, according to a Harvard study. For medical practice leaders, this carries risks to your organization’s bottom line. It will be crucial to manage the impact that obesity and related issues — including diabetes and cardiovascular disease — have on the fastest-growing outpatient procedures for spine, orthopedics and cardiology specialists.
