OrthoNOW Co-Founder and CFO, Justin Irizarry to Present Workshop on Disruptive Healthcare Delivery Models

Justin Irizarry, Co-Founder and CFO of OrthoNOW , the nation's first and only orthopedic urgent care network, will be leading a workshop on disruptive healthcare delivery model at the annual FIME Conference  on August 4, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. The FIME trade exhibition and conference is held at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Registration to the conference and the workshop is FREE to the public before July 19.   
Mr. Irizarry, a Cornell University and Wharton School of Business graduate, was recently recognized with the prestigious 2016 South Florida Business Journal "40 Under 40" award for his pioneering entrepreneurial work with the OrthoNOW franchise and developing and activating a business model that changes how patients can access expert orthopedic care on-demand and at a cost-effective rate. In 2014, OrthoNOW was named by Entrepreneur as a "Top Ten Franchise Opportunity" in healthcare.
The workshop will be an excellent opportunity for healthcare professionals to learn how Irizarry has navigated the healthcare economy by breaking through old models of healthcare delivery and creating a bold new way to reshape the system.  He will share valuable insights including key healthcare franchising tenets. Part of the workshop will be dedicated to the OrthoNOW orthopedic urgent care center model which offers a turn-key solution with a comprehensive support system.  
FIME is the largest and most attended annual medical trade exhibition and conference in the Western Hemisphere. FIME's primary focus is four areas of the medical industry: technology, products and supplies, services, and equipment.
