“I believe that one of the things that differentiates StrategyGen is our commitment to research on new health care delivery and financing models and the dissemination of our research in scholarly journals and policy briefs. Our team’s peer-reviewed research provides StrategyGen with the perspective that others don’t see and brings credibility to our work.”
