Episode 9: Homecare Roundtable #3 with Nick & Craig

  •   Podcast
  •   6/15/2016
  •   Tripp Matthews, Craig Mandeville, Nick Seabrook

Craig Mandeville, founder & CEO of Forcura, and Nick Seabrook, co-founder and Principal of BlackTree Healthcare Consulting join Tripp for a discussion about the Homecare industry.

They review their experience at the Post Acute Link conference recently in Chicago; Nick does a decent job of describing what Forcura is all about.  Craig does better however.  Then the two of them dive deep into their joint endeavor of Revenue Cycle Optimization.

Craig & Nick then review their approach to improving the "office" side of running a Healthcare organization, and really do a great job pulling out one main point:  It is about three main things:  People, Process, and Technology. 

Then we (kind of) argue about which of those three are most important to really improving an organization.

We also have a quick hit on the new Prior Authorization ruling from CMS. 

Excited to have them on come August 25th to present this Revenue Cycle Optimization as a webinar on Curaport.
