By Gay De Hart – If you are a part of an organization that provides healthcare services, you’ve seen big changes in how services are paid. The days are numbered for a simple fee-for-service payment system.
By April Wilson – Are you tired of email spam and annoying internet ads? Well, it might be time to pay closer attention to them. That’s because digital marketers know something about human behavior that you probably don’t.
By Gina McNellis – We’ve already written over the past year about expected changes to the Cancer Registry– and how extensive they are likely to be. No doubt – this is a big deal. Remember the shift from ICD-9 to ICD-10?
By Marty Callahan – The way payer trends are developing, you can expect your 2019 to be a year defined by denials.
