    There is also the Turbo ++ upgrade for large academic medical centers, with modules for:

    Appointing researchers with no clinical interests or skills to run clinical departments, based on grant money accrual

    Mechanisms for safely and swiftly marginalizing and ejecting more traditionally committed practitioners of personal bedside medicine; includes label set with “impaired,” “troubled,” and the surefire “disruptive”

    Cloaking and rationalizing disproportionate remuneration, perks and benefits for senior management, even in the non-profit and community-supported sector

    Foisting grandiose expansion and building projects on the community (includes rose-colored glasses)

    Ready-to-use strategies to crush and displace or absorb independent medical practices.

    All out of beta and ready to rock!
