"To deliver better preventative care for an aging population, healthcare systems need to: focus initially on high intensity users of acute services; establish a flexible operational platform for other patient groups;  and develop capability and capacity to impact the entire system." GEORGE MACGINNIS, PA TELEHEALTH expert
