Presentation to Detail Best Practices for Optimizing Revenue Integrity Strategy in a Critical Access Hospital Setting
ATLANTA, Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today more than 62 million rural residents rely on CAHs for access to primary, acute and 24-hour emergency healthcare services, yet more than 41% of CAHs are operating at a financial loss. In order to have financial sustainability, CAHs must implement tools and best practices to make strategic shifts towards a culture of revenue integrity. Craneware, Inc., the healthcare market leader in automated revenue integrity solutions, today announced that its client, Ellenville Regional Hospital, an award-winning critical access hospital located in New York, will present alongside Craneware on best practices for critical access hospitals' financial performance at the National Rural Health Association's Critical Access Hospital Conference (NRHA CAH) 2013.
Ellenville Regional Hospital's Senior Vice President and CFO, Patricia Gavis, CPA, will join Craneware Business Solutions Consultant Marge Gray in a presentation titled, "Leveraging Revenue Integrity Strategy to Optimize Financial Performance." This presentation will take place on Friday, October 4, at 9:30 am, and will describe Ellenville Regional Hospital's successful journey to revenue integrity. During the NRHA CAH event, Ellenville Regional Hospital will also be accepting the "Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals for Quality" award.
"Critical access hospitals face the same challenges as larger healthcare organizations and often have a smaller budget and fewer IT staff to work with," said Keith Neilson, Craneware CEO. "We look forward to presenting alongside Ellenville Regional Hospital at the NRHA CAH 2013 conference and hope that Ellenville's successful journey to revenue integrity will inspire other healthcare leaders to make similar strides to ensure successful financial performance."
