In a time when healthcare costs continue to rise, Dr. Lance’s contributions will allow React Health to achieve the mission of reducing healthcare costs. At a critical time, React Health continues to take cost out of the equation at each point along the care continuum rather than effect increases. With Dr. Lance as part of the team, we are assured to continue to achieve our goals, serving our customers and patients, offering necessary therapies to achieve the outcomes they desire.”
