Emergency Department Efficiencies Training 

Now more than ever, it is critically important for rural hospitals to have a renewed focus on quality and efficiency to stay relevant in this rapidly changing market place. CFOs, business office staff, quality and risk managers will all benefit from learning how both finance and quality can successfully connect in the Emergency Department.

Join us on April 5 in Salina to get up to speed on EMTALA and hear how one hospital built a system of collecting patient responsibility payments in their ED. Also, gather tools and ideas for how your hospital can start to put quality measures and financial initiatives together to decrease ED utilization, make current processes more efficient, and initiate major cost savings.
