Becker’s HealthIT + Revenue Cycle 2018

Revenue Cycle ConferenceThis year’s Becker’s HIT + Revenue Cycle Conference is almost here! This event is just what the doctor ordered during these challenging times in healthcare. More than 255 speakers from leading health systems and technology companies are scheduled to present and discuss strategies and ideas about how to make healthcare better in the face of rising costs. Several themes emerge as this year’s hot topics: Leveraging data and analytics, improving security and compliance, transforming consumer experience in revenue cycle, and, finally, leading the charge with strategy.

Given the alignment between our focus at Patientco (delivering happy patients and more payments through smart technology) and key conference themes, our team will also be on hand all week to show revenue cycle leaders how to use machine learning to tailor the financial experience for each patient. Furthermore, our results speak for themselves. When patients have a better experience, they pay more. If you would like to speak with one of our team members, you can schedule a time that works for you, here.
