Dear Reader,

As our enterprise continues to grow, nThrive is developing more opportunities to provide our clients with the best possible services. On December 1, 2016, Adreima joined nThrive in our commitment to expand Patient-to-Payment Solutions. This is a dynamic time for the organization as we prepare to share our expertise and solutions with you and the entire industry. As a matter of fact, one of our first full solutions debuts will be at HIMSS 2017, which you can read more about.

I’m proud to share with you that just a few weeks ago, nThrive Education and Analytics President Tom Ormondroyd was selected to deliver the keynote speech at the U.S. Department of Labor American Apprenticeships Initiative Grantee National Meeting in Washington, D.C. His keynote emphasized the importance of apprenticeships in a rapidly growing industry that is facing a growing shortage of key skilled talent. To read how nThrive addresses the shortage and helps health care organizations to do the same by building a community-sourced workforce through registered apprenticeships, click here.

Here at nThrive, we love to share our expertise and teach our clients all that we can. Moshe Starkman, Senior VBR Consultant at nThrive, will join Michael-Marron Stearns, CPC, CFPC, MD, a physician informaticist, on February 9 for MACRA-focused webcast sponsored through Becker’s Hospital Review. Plan to view this webcast which will break down the barriers to success under value-driven health care and outlines the baseline needs for education, performance analytics and strategic program management, as well as promotion model implementation.

Preventing employed physician practices from losing money requires targeting the underlying causes. In order to construct an effective and immediate improvement plan, you must look to your data for answers. At nThrive, we find many health care organizations don’t know where to begin.

Attending industry events and sharing our knowledge is always of top importance at nThrive.

Also, our team is hosting an excellent, thought-leading Lunch & Learn on Monday, February 20. For more details on nThrive at HIMSS 2017, read our HIMSS17 overview article.
