The Process

The Identify phase

The Identify phase is first and foremost about finding and understanding important unmet health needs. The participants will discover problems and opportunities by directly observing the entire cycle of care from diagnosis and treatment to recovery and billing. They watch what’s done and how it affects the provider, the patient, and the system while asking pointed questions that challenge the status quo.
