ATLANTA, Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As 73% of all registered hospitals in the U.S. are community hospitals having 300 beds or less, collectively these hospitals account for the largest sector of the U.S. healthcare system. Providing well-located access to emergency and medical care, the role of community hospitals is vital to the wellbeing of Americans. To sustain community healthcare with quality physicians and equipment, community hospitals must ensure solid financial performance, compliance and operational efficiency. In support of community hospital leaders' initiatives to achieve these requirements, Craneware, Inc., the market leader in automated revenue integrity solutions, announced today its sponsorship of the 2011 Community Hospital 100 Executive Management Conference, to be held October 23-25, 2011 at the Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina.
As a gathering of some of the nation's most ground-breaking, senior-level, community hospital executives, The Community Hospital 100 Executive Management Conference provides a venue for industry thought leaders to collaborate toward strengthening a sector of healthcare that is often considered to be the foundation of the national healthcare system. Limited to 100 community hospitals with 300 or fewer beds, this year's conference agenda will consist of educational sessions, roundtables and workshops with a focus on closing the divide between current challenges and the expected clinical and payment models of the future.
Craneware provides healthcare organizations of all sizes, including community hospitals, with automated revenue integrity solutions that have consistently proven to be essential tools for hospitals' achievement of better financial performance, operational efficiency and minimized compliance risk. In recognition of the support that the Community Hospital 100 provides community hospitals across the country, Craneware has elected to become a "leadership level" sponsor of the organization's Executive Management Conference.
"It is astounding what can be accomplished when passionate industry leaders of this caliber come together to work toward a unified goal of improving community hospital operations," said Craneware CEO, Keith Neilson. "Craneware is proud to support the efforts of the Community Hospital 100 to help advance this category of healthcare organizations that are essential in meeting the clinical needs of millions of Americans."
