The miniVHAN podcast is for healthcare provider organizations who are members of VHAN, a clinically integrated network in Tennessee and surrounding states. In miniVHAN, we highlight clinical transformation strategies, regulatory updates, and industry trends that are key drivers on the road to improved patient health and stronger communities. This podcast is designed to be for VHAN members, by VHAN members, as each 30-minute episode is developed from questions and feedback directly from members like you. Episodes also reference member-only resources and tools available to your organization that support patient care delivery. So hop in the miniVHAN on your commute, during your daily walk, or over lunch.
