Practical Solutions for the Private Practice
Welcome to the PDS Newsletter Library!  Here you will find past issues of Practical Solutions for the Private Practice.  Each issue contains several brief articles on news, current events, and product offerings of interest to private practice physicians.
The newsletters also include Quick Links to a number of healthcare-related web sites that our clients and colleagues find particularly useful.  If you know of others that help make your job easier, please let us know and we'll add them to the list.
Finally, if you have a suggestion for a topic you'd like to learn more about, please send an email to and we'll do our best to include it in a future edition.  Thank you!
