Bede helps hospitals and healthcare systems provide better patient care while improving their operations. Taking a broad view of the factors that influence performance, he helps healthcare leaders tackle a range of complex challenges, including improving clinical operations, restructuring struggling hospitals, optimizing healthcare information technology solutions, and integrating new cutting-edge technology.
