As 2015 comes to a close, we're incredibly grateful for a year of growth, collaboration, innovation, and partnership -- both in ClickCare and in the growing field of telemedicine as a whole.
Our blog is always representative of both these broader dynamics as well as the things that we see in our work and with our colleagues day to do.
So, in the hope that they may inspire or inform, these are ClickCare's 7 most popular posts of the year, ranging from HIPAA and cybersecurity, to telemedicine, to costs and capitation, to healthcare collaboration:
