December was a good month for us in a very up and down year. We will see if market conditions will allow us to string together a few in a row with an eye toward profit sharing. There are some conditions that are out of our control, but we should keep on the ones that we can change. The KPI boards will return next week with updated data.
In fall of 2022, we started the process of implementing CareSight in 50 hospital locations.
Slow going as far as the number of systems turned on at this time. We are in IT evaluation process in over 50 sites at the moment, so there is movement. This will be on the public KPI boards next week..
