Healthcare Org 1, 4.03 (R) [INFO] Topic 1. Synthesize Course Content

Topic 1. What is the synthesized course content required to create the healthcare organization and governance structure for the Lesson Four course assignment? The poster project requires you to synthesize course material to design a healthcare organization and governance structure the way you would have things run in the best of all worlds.
