Sg2

Summary
Sg2 is a heavy-duty, provider-oriented information intermediary for healthcare professionals. Michael Sachs, CEO, is a visionary, whose opinions are always worth considering. He does for healthcare what Gideon Gartner did years ago for technology – acts as a trusted intermediary and information broker. As the U.S. system transitions from turning the crank on procedures and office visits ever faster to managing clusters of related symptoms and treatments, Sachs’s views hold out hope that providers will not be skinned alive (the latter phrase is mine, not Sachs’s). Registration is required. But worth it.
