After The Patient Leaves: Best Practices in Collections – Point-of-service collections should be an organization’s focus, but certain factors can cause this critical strategy to fail.

Regardless of where your organization falls on the vulnerability spectrum, post-service collections must be a priority. In this webinar, Elizabeth Woodcock, MBA, FACMPE, CPC, will discuss actions to help drive collections after the encounter.
