September 27, 2016 — Free Executive Web Briefing Sponsored By Core Solutions, Inc.

It is no secret that the future of health care delivery is centered on integration and collaboration. To holistically improve the consumer experience and service outcomes and reduce costs through greater efficiency, it is critical that payers and health care providers, centralize consumer access and revenue cycle operations. As with most aspects of today’s turbulent health care system, there are pros and cons to every approach. But as we move from siloed care delivery models to aligned entities that share a common goal to improve patient health outcomes, the case for centralizing scheduling and billing is quite clear and advantageous for enhancing reporting and analytics insights.

Join Sharon Hicks, senior associate at OPEN MINDS and Ravi Ganesan, President of Core Solutions Inc. on September 27 at 2:00pm ET to learn the three key steps for combining your people, process, and technology to successfully streamline your approach to centralized scheduling and billing. Our faculty will also showcase the benefits of both centralized scheduling and billing, as well as how your team can get the most from a centralized electronic health record (EHR) system.


During this 90-minute executive web briefing, attendees will:

  • Learn the three step approach to successfully integrating a centralized scheduling and billing system
  • Understand how a centralized scheduling and billing system can provide benefits to your patients and internal staff
  • Discover strategies to get the most out of your centralized EHR platform
