    Breaking Down Silos in Your Clinical Revenue Cycle

    February 16, 2022

    Noon Central 

    Join the Rural Health Association of Arkansas for a webinar on February 16 at noon central time. 

    What Will You Learn?  

    Revenue cycle is critical to the success of rural and community hospitals, but this often breaks down with the intentional or unintentional creation of work silos.  An efficient revenue cycle requires the breakdown of these silos into a uniform, streamline process.  Such will result in increased revenue and quality coding, and it will create huge value for the hospital.  This webinar will explain the issue with silo creation and demonstrate opportunities for improvement with use of logistical transformation and software.
