Educating Practice Managers at New England MGMA

PRL is Attending NEMGMA on November 16, 2021

The 2021 New England MGMA Regional Conference is approaching quickly. Later this month, from November 15-17, practice managers from across New England will gather in person for the first time since 2019. The New England Regional Conference serves as an important educational opportunity for practice managers to exchange knowledge and resources on how best to move forward in the wake of Covid-19. The theme for this year’s conference is Resilience: Leadership Through Seasons of Change. 

PRL has seen firsthand how quickly healthcare and RevCycle are evolving, especially in the wake of Covid-19. We are attending NE MGMA to educate and support practice managers who are experiencing challenges with their  RevCycle, specifically with patient self-pay. 

Representing PRL at NE MGMA are Tim McNamara, Senior Business Development Advisor, and Stefenie Sappet, Director of RCM. On Tuesday, November 16, Tim McNamara will be leading Workshop 302 and will be leading a presentation about managing patient financial experience and self-pay with Patient Payment Xcelerator (PPX). 

 

Patient self-pay is on the rise and many providers are struggling to maintain collections from the growing number of self-pay patients. PPX is a unique solution developed by PRL that increases your net collections and provides patients with an easy, convenient payment experience. You can learn more about PPX in the video below, as well as here. If you are interested in learning more about patient self-pay and PPX, please attend Tim’s presentation from 1:05-2:05 pm on Tuesday, November 16. Additional information about the event can be found in the NERC Brochure.

Watch the PPX Overview Video to learn about this unique self-pay and patient experience solution.
