It is critically important, now more than ever, 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, emergency department staff, nursing staff, and registration staff will all benefit from learning how both finance and quality can successfully connect in the Emergency Department. This one-day training was offered in two cities: Hays on Nov. 29 and Wichita on Nov. 30.
Training sessions focused on strategies to connect quality and finance in the emergency department. Topics include: Refresher on EMTALA and strategies for improving revenue cycle practices; How to build relationships with patients, partners and the community is essential to this concept; and Tools and ideas on how your hospital can begin to put quality measures and financial initiatives together to make current processes more efficient and improve patient satisfaction.
