Dear Reader –

Spring is finally here, and as always, I have high hopes for this upcoming season. With each day, the positive culture at nThrive radiates throughout our organization, and it is my goal to continue leading a company where our colleagues are happy and thriving.

By staying focused, united, nimble and accountable as we work on our day-to-day activities, it’s vital that each of our colleagues understands his/her valuable role in our mission to transform health care. And, we also want everyone to have fun as well. We’re pleased that our environment and culture support that as demonstrated by our recent certification as a great workplace by analysts at Great Place to Work ®. I am thrilled with this recognition and I’m so happy to know the colleagues on the nThrive team enjoy going to work every day.

I believe what makes up the nThrive culture stems from our organizational DNA, or as we like to call it, our VMVA – vision, mission, values and approach. I am proud to say that each individual at nThrive brings something special to our company, including each member of the leadership team. Over the past couple of months, we welcomed three new leaders to our growing organization; Bernard Gay as chief information officer, Rhonda Vetere as president of Data and Analytics, and Ellen Zane on the nThrive board of directors. I have no doubt that they will, without exception, aid in leading nThrive to continued success, all while sharing a wealth of knowledge.

Of course, in the midst of these exciting times, we are running business as usual. Over the past month, we hosted several insightful webinars on topics including the challenges of Patient Access, the value of a complete coding quality audit program, and achieving financial improvements through bundled payments. Be sure to catch the replays and even earn CEUs while you’re at it. In addition, on March 29 we’re wrapping up the month with a webinar entitled, “Q1 Theme Demo Day: Patient Access,” presented by nThrive Education partner Susan Gurzynski-Wells, HealthStream senior product manager, Revenue Cycle. We hope you’re able to join us!

Have a happy and healthy start to this Spring season and thank you for taking the time to read our newsletter.
