Perfecting Pre-service Processes for a Positive Patient Financial Experience
Sponsored by: Waystar
Presented by: HealthLeaders
11:05 - 12:05 PM EST

About the Session:

It is no secret providers have been plagued by staffing shortages, razor-thin margins, and regulatory burdens—leading to increased pressure to identify and collect all earned revenue. These industry challenges can also profoundly impact the patient financial experience and a healthcare organization’s overall success.

It is now mission-critical to apply proactive strategies that hone in on pre-service processes and streamline the front end to create a more holistic approach to the patient's financial journey.

During this discussion, panelists will review how healthcare organizations can identify and solve pre-service financial clearance processes to improve the patient financial experience, streamline manual workloads and ultimately enhance collection efforts.

December 8 – Demo Day Agenda Overview


Prior Auth - What will it take to fix it?
Sponsored by: Rhyme
10:00 - 10:30 AM EST

About the Session:

Many good companies have tried to solve the prior authorization process that plagues U.S. healthcare. It hasn’t worked yet, but it’s not their fault.

The root cause of this dysfunctional system isn’t any company, software, or group of people, it’s the absence of a real-time network. There are four strategies required to stand up a real-time network. Rhyme will show you these strategies and early results.
