Edward D. Rickert quoted in article “‘Nighthawk’ Radiology Services Expand to Hospital Pharmacies: Could Pathology Laboratories Be Next?”Dark Daily 07/06/15

New and innovative ways to provide quality healthcare cost-effectively to more people is needed, and telehealth has emerged to answer the charge.”
