CHICAGO, Aug. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ZirMed®, a recognized leader in revenue cycle software and analytics, will host its annual ZirMed User Group Conference (ZUG16) August 22-23 in Chicago, home to ZirMed's Healthcare Analytics Center of Excellence. ZUG16 will address today's unique revenue-cycle challenges as the nation's healthcare system spans the fee-for-service and value-based care worlds.
This year's keynote speaker, Dr. Jonathan Burroughs, CEO of The Burroughs Healthcare Consulting Network, Inc., will discuss the top ten initiatives that successful healthcare organizations are embarking upon to transform their care and business models to optimize their outcomes and their margins. An industry luminary, Dr. Burroughs serves on the national faculty of the American College of Healthcare Executives and the American Association for Physician Leadership.
Attendees will learn to help their organizations work more efficiently and effectively, improve their revenue streams, and reduce reimbursement delays. This year's conference, themed "Taking RCM to New Heights," will also explore how the role of revenue cycle management is changing now that healthcare providers have cleared the initial hurdles and financial investments of implementing and demonstrating meaningful use of electronic health records as mandated by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
"At last year's conference I really benefitted from the continuous customer-to-customer and ZirMed-to-customer interaction," said Adam Priestle, Senior Director of Revenue Cycle at Consolidated Health Services Home Health. "The networking was more meaningful because I went home with strong connections to leaders in organizations similar to ours – from across the nation, and who are all finding success with the same RCM software we count on. It's a deeper understanding of how to improve our revenue cycle processes – we can put the strategies into action immediately."
"Each year, we look forward to bringing our customers and partners together for ZUG – and it's great to be in Chicago for ZUG16," said Tom Butts, ZirMed CEO. "With the sessions we have planned on end-to-end revenue cycle transparency, denial and appeal management and more, as well as Dr. Burroughs' keynote on ensuring success in healthcare, our users are sure to leave the conference with fresh ideas for more streamlined and efficient revenue cycle systems."
The conference will take place in the JW Marriott Chicago, located in the heart of the financial district. Registration is now open. To register and view the full agenda and other conference details, visit zug16.com.
