Dear Reader –

Spring is finally here and with the new season comes a brand-new issue of The nQuirer. This month's issue includes valuable insights and unique opportunities for you to engage with our expert colleagues at nThrive.

Let me begin by announcing that nThrive is excited to participate in the upcoming ACDIS (Association of Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialists) Annual Conference, which runs from May 20 – 23, 2019 in Kissimmee, FL. I encourage you to visit us at booth #135 to learn more about what your hospital or health care organization can achieve with our robust portfolio of CDI technology and revenue cycle management services. What's more, you can enter for a chance to win a pair of Apple AirPods and play our Spin-the-Wheel game for charity – all proceeds will go to Hire Heroes USA. While at our booth, be sure to ask about tickets to the exclusive nThrive reception on May 21 on the boat at MOOR, a restaurant located in the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center.

Next, I'd like to highlight how effectively our Charge Integrity solutions can integrate with Epic to help health care providers accomplish the seemingly impossible. nThrive Charge Capture Audit and Charge Description Master work seamlessly with Epic solutions to eliminate redundant data entry and simplify overall system management. One major health care provider reported saving significant time after integrating nThrive Charge Capture with Epic. Click here to read more about this remarkable feat and how nThrive can help your health care organization as well.

Let's turn our attention to a fantastic blog featuring 10 Signs You Need a New Claims Management Solution. Here at nThrive, we want you to be absolutely certain that your claims management solution is successfully helping you capture maximum reimbursements quickly. Changes in health information technology and work processes, combined with increasing payor complexities, could prove to be detrimental to your current claims management solution and we're here to help you understand whether it might be time for you to utilize something new and boost your revenue cycle to new heights. I highly recommend looking at this in-depth list and reaching out to us if any of the included items stand out as problem areas for your health care organization's operation.

On a final note, nThrive was honored to be a part of last month's NAHAM event in Orlando, FL, where we presented with our client partner Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center (WFBMC) for a presentation entitled, “The Power of Partnering to Fill Financial Clearance Gaps.” In 2017, WFBMC signed on as one of our first Patient-to-Payment℠ clients. In just two short years, our partnership has thrived and is a prime example of our capacity to better serve patients through the continuum of care and improve our client's revenue cycle performance. I invite you to dive further into this engaging presentation and the impressive outcomes resulting from this incredible partnership.

Once again, I hope you'll take the time to connect with us at ACDIS in May. As always, we stand by with our valuable health information management and technology solutions and continue to seek ways in which we can improve workflow and performance at health care organizations like yours. Let's create quality improvement in healthcare, together.
