“Business, more than any other occupation, is a continual dealing with the future; it is a continual calculation, an instinctive exercise in foresight.””
——HENRY R. LUCE (1898-1967), AMERICAN ENTREPRENEUR,
CREATOR AND PUBLISHER OF TIME MAGAZINE
As our nation’s leaders continue to negotiate the terms of solving the economic crisis, financial downturn and rising unemployment figures continue to affect us all. Business owners are struggling to make ends meet, examining budgets and considering cost-cutting maneuvers that will lower operational costs and remain open in a challenging environment. Physical medicine and rehabilitation professionals and practitioners are among those who are restructuring the finances of their practices, while remaining viable industry competitors who continue to offer optimal client service.
In this economic tempest, there is a perceptible silver lining for the physical rehabilitation industry—and health care professionals, in general. Public demand for medical and preventive care continues to rise. In fact, jobs for physical, occupational, and speech-language therapists are among the most-requested among employment recruiters. Even so, industry practitioners and decision-makers are paying closer attention to their budgets and overall operational costs as a new era of fiscal awareness dawns.
Respectfully acknowledging that its readership of physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists must carefully consider budgetary constraints more than ever before, Rehab Management presents its 2009 Buyer’s Guide, a comprehensive, easy-to-use reference guide, prepared in three alphabetized sections that include a company index, a product directory, and a trade and brand name reference.
We are confident that the information provided in Rehab Management’s 2009 Buyer’s Guide will be an indispensable resource tool during the upcoming year, for all of your practice’s long-term, short-term, fitness, practice management, and rehab products and service purchasing decisions.
