12 years in Hospital Revenue Cycle
12 years in Revenue Cycle Software & Technology
My early goals in life were always around helping a patient. Through some luck and a few really good mentors I ended up in the business side of things, better known as the revenue cycle, for hospitals and physicians alike. From early beginnings as an Account Rep II at Cleveland Clinic to today, as a Chief Operating Officer, my push has remained the same, however. How do I help a patient have a better experience via technology, software, and services?
