About The Training

This training is designed for those who understand and work with the revenue cycle management issues that are a daily reality in the community health center world. More experienced attendees will be challenged to reconsider things they believe they know about revenue cycle management, but all levels of experience are welcome. Frequently we manage as we were taught and may not have had the time to challenge existing processes. As we enter into a “New Era of Accountability”, revenue management and compliance are at the forefront of organization sustainability. We will address current revenue cycle topics in a practical, but detailed manner and put them in context with the current compliance environment.
