ALPHARETTA, Ga.--()--Today RelayHealth Financial detailed a comprehensive HIMSS16 Conference & Exhibition (Las Vegas, Feb. 29-Mar.4) agenda designed to help healthcare finance leaders tackle the obstacles that may disrupt payment when financial and clinical processes are not considered together.

The agenda features educational sessions and demonstrations designed to help providers capitalize on the inseparable nature of financial and clinical data through seamless technology integration of clinical and financial systems. Highlights include provider best practices and considerations to help maintain revenue during complex EHR-EMR conversions.

Specific sessions, presentations, sponsorships and introductions by RelayHealth Financial and its subject matter experts include:

  • Revenue Cycle Solutions Summit–This event on Feb. 29th brings together thought leaders, experts and financial decision makers for an intense day of problem solving, innovation and education geared toward strategic revenue cycle improvement.

“Healthcare today depends on more collaborative, interconnected systems that foster closer ties between patient health and business health,” said Janet Cutcliff, Vice President & General Manager, Patient Access Solutions for RelayHealth Financial. “As providers focus ahead on the path to value, the need to optimize revenue cycle performance–especially when undergoing increasingly common and potentially disruptive EMR migrations–and work efficiently with payers is more important than ever before. RelayHealth Financial looks forward to the opportunity to engage providers at HIMSS and discuss how we’ve worked closely with dozens of hospitals and health systems to integrate revenue cycle and EMR systems to help keep revenue on track, and support positive financial experiences for patients.”

RelayHealth Financial will be located in the McKesson booth, #4002 in Exhibit Hall C, Level 2, of the Sands Expo Center, Las Vegas, February 29th through March 4th, 2016.
