Accelerating your accounts payables performance through automation


Many healthcare organizations struggle to navigate a rapidly changing accounts payables landscape to improve their cash and working capital positions as interest rates fluctuate and competition intensifies. The lack of modern AP strategy can contribute to many challenges, including slow back-office invoicing and payment processing, as well as unnecessary diversion of critical resources away from more value-generating activities.

During this webinar we will discuss the path to realize significant efficiencies and business momentum.

Join us to learn:
  • What you could be leaving on the table if you're not leveraging the latest in automated AP solutions
  • Learn how mature your current invoice and payment strategy is, and how to gain efficiencies, as well cost-savings
  • Understand what a "best-in-class" AP roadmap looks like for your organization
  • Hear about a real-life success story (Note for internal reviewers - this will be a blind case study)
Original live webinar date: 8/22/2018
After this program, you'll be able to..
  • Learn ways to overcome the pain of not having timely and efficient invoice processing/payment
  • See how progressive healthcare organizations are realizing additional revenue in their AP operation
  • Learn strategies to shift from the traditional fee-for-service model to a value-based reimbursement one
