In an era of transformation in healthcare, access to actionable insight is key to helping revenue cycle leaders establish an informed approach to managing their organizations’ financial operations. I am thrilled to lead SSI in the continuation of this journey of excellence, and I look forward to the coming innovations that will further benefit our clients.”
