Dear Health Care Reader – 

Day in and day out, I am extremely proud to lead our growing entity and am honored to help serve you and your organization’s needs. Our recent acquisitions have positioned nThrive to offer more value to more clients. Helping you and your organization thrive, from Patient-to-Payment℠, is our goal. With the combination of our legacy top-rated companies, we are more than capable of doing just that. I encourage you to read this article which explains how we have unified into a holistic entity.

Providers must implement strategies that improve cash flow and increase patient satisfaction.

 “How will the Trump administration affect the Medicare Access and Chip Reauthorization Act of 2015 Quality Payment Program?” is the most frequent question among health care organizations currently as they seek answers about health care’s future. Under a new administration, change is expected, but this administration seems to have ushered in a distinctly different political environment, including a heightened uncertainty concerning health care policy. Read this article to see where the changes are headed. 

In the health care industry, Patient Access is the inception of the revenue cycle and begins the billing process. Errors in Patient Access can lead to serious financial consequences. nThrive Education™ offers more than 100 courses, plus industry-first Patient Access competency assessments, pre-employment tests, and simulation technology for Patient Access professionals. To help Patient Access professionals, nThrive will soon premier a revolutionary, first-of-its-kind Patient Access certification program. Click here to learn more. 

Patient Access also makes linking front office dependencies across the revenue cycle – from Patient-to-Payment℠ – a crucial necessity.
