I don’t view this as an individual award,” said David Ruskin, Deputy Program Manager, Health Services for Salient CRGT. “Rather, this recognizes our innovative approach to establishing a culture of process improvement, as well as the notable cost savings and efficiencies our customer achieved as a result.”
