Aug 04, 2011, 12:04 ET from onFocus Healthcare, Inc.

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- onFocus Healthcare, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise performance management solutions for the healthcare services marketplace, announced today the addition of Susan Vick as senior vice president of financial advisory services.  

Vick brings more than 20 years of experience in forecasting, budgeting and strategic planning, regulatory and management accounting, and profitability measurement methodologies to onFocus. In the new role, Vick will lead a consulting services practice that will focus on full life cycle budgeting, forecasting and long-range plan optimization, from assessing an organization's current state to implementing new processes that leverage leading practices based on each organization's goals and strategies.

Vick's advisory services will provide a framework for optimizing both the framework and information that places these plans in high demand by today's senior financial executives. Many hospitals and health systems face continually reducing reimbursements, deteriorating payer mix and a demand to increase private revenues. The additional benefit is that these plans can be tracked and monitored through onFocus' enterprise performance management solution.

"Susan brings a wealth of experience in financial strategy to the onFocus team," said Steven Mason, Jr., president and CEO of onFocus. "With her expertise, we will be able to expand our existing advisory services and the functionality of the onFocus solution providing even greater performance value to our clients."

Prior to onFocus, Vick led the national healthcare advisory enterprise performance practice as a director for PricewaterhouseCoopers. She also co-founded the firm Acceles, Inc., a consulting practice focused on enterprise performance management solutions, based in Nashville.  

Vick is a graduate of Lipscomb University.
