Patientco is returning to HIMSS 2015 as a member of the Georgia Pavilion, booth 3639. In addition to showing how we can help healthcare providers achieve a more efficient patient revenue cycle, we’ll be contributing to several of the sessions and social events. Here’s where you can find us in Chicago next week:

Best Practices For Vetting Vendors, Boosting Performance, and Driving ROI at the Revenue Cycle Solutions Summit

In this best practices session, Mike Simms, Vice President of Revenue Cycle at Cone Health, will discuss three key strategies Cone Health has leveraged Patientco to build a successful patient revenue cycle program. Then, starting with the vendor/partner selection decision, Simms will offer attendees four criteria for vetting vendors and technology, along with practical tips for preparation, training and go-live processes with a new technology platform.

In addition, he will review the six critical financial metrics – such as total patient payments collected – Cone is measuring to define implementation ROI and patient satisfaction, and ultimately the success of its patient revenue cycle strategy.

Revenue Cycle Improvement Task Force Unveils Revenue Cycle of the Future Infographic

Patientco is a contributing member of the Revenue Cycle Improvement Task Force, a collaboration of industry leaders whose purpose is to model the healthcare revenue cycle of the future for providers.

“We’re unveiling an infographic that shows a typical patient encounter and what the interaction should look like from a financial perspective and what type of information needs to be shared for that experience to take place,” said Stuart Hanson, chairman of the task force and director of Healthcare Solutions, Citi Retail Services in Chicago.

The Task Force is laying the groundwork for next generation revenue cycle management tools and processes, and informing industry innovation.  The new consumer-directed world under the ACA is “driven by the increased number of consumers with high deductible health plans,” Hanson said.
