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.
