Dear Reader –

In the midst of winter, it can feel like time is ticking much too slowly. Short days and long nights make for a lengthy season; however, here at nThrive we’re keeping things moving. This past month has been delightful in more ways than one – starting with some recent news.

This month, nThrive was named Category Leader for Transcription Services in the 2018 Best in KLAS: Software & Services report. Receiving this recognition is an honor and I am proud of all of the hardworking people throughout our organization who made this possible. To learn more about this award, click here.

When it comes to providing our clients and readers with thought leadership on industry topics, the nThrive team goes above and beyond. This month, we have new content that you don’t want to miss. If you’re focused on the front-end of the revenue cycle, be sure to check out our latest eBook, “Five ways to turn Patient Access into a revenue generator.” Here, you’ll discover key steps health care organizations can take to reinvent their front-end operation. Then, in his most recent blog titled, “The Mid Revenue Cycle: Key to Reducing Denials,” Kevin Smith, vice president of Product Management, explains what you can do now to measure the health of your organization’s mid-revenue cycle operations. Finally, nThrive Education has introduced a new asset that you’ll certainly enjoy. If you’re ready to have some fun and test your knowledge at the same time, click here to learn about “Discharge Me UB-04,” an interactive game.

With our connected world, we are truly lucky that we can learn from anywhere. With that said, nThrive is hosting a webinar on March 22 and we hope you can join us for a deeper dive into the importance of coding audits in today’s increasing scrutiny on accurate reporting and reimbursement. The webinar will be titled “The Value of a Complete Quality Coding Audit Program." Stay up to date on our blog for more information, coming soon.

If you’re interested in learning about Clinically Integrated Networks (CIN), then you’ll want to catch the replay of our recent webinar, “Quality Payment Program: Path to Clinical Integration.” nThrive Senior Consultant Scott Jones discusses what a CIN is, the specific legal prerequisites that come into play and the seven key elements for success.

I hope that you learned something new after reading this month’s edition of The nQuirer. If there is anything else that nThrive can help you achieve, let us know! That’s our job.
