National Recovery Month sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), is observed every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with mental and substance use disorders to live healthy, rewarding lives.
In this podcast, I speak with Dr. William Dailey, a board-certified Family Practice Physician and Chief Medical Information Officer at Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare (Clinton, MO.) about their recent go-live with MEDITECH Expanse.
