ALBANY, N.Y., August 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — DataGen, a healthcare analytics company, and Sage Growth Partners, an agency that accelerates commercial success for growth-minded health organizations, released a new market report detailing rising market forces and changes in payment reform that providers must address to stay relevant in the future of healthcare.
