How do you help healthcare organizations navigate the biggest challenges in healthcare?
At TruBridge, we’ve made it our mission to reduce the pressure, stress and time that healthcare providers spend on administrative and financial management. Like the bridge in our name and logo, we make it easier for healthcare organizations to get where they need to be and focus on the job that matters most: caring for patients.
What advice would you offer to healthcare leaders when choosing among vendors?
First and foremost, the vendor should have a proven track record of improving and/or solving the exact problem or challenge. Second, the vendor should offer a shared-risk contract that ties performance to payment. Third, relationships matter, so the vendor should operate as an extension of the client’s operation.
What is some advice you can give providers for a successful implementation of a new product or service?
First, document the exact metrics or key performance indicators that need to improve prior to contract signing, and tie vendor contract terms to improving those specific metrics. Second, build your implementation around the metrics. Third, assign and empower an internal leader that can hold both parties accountable to achieve the goals set forth in the implementation plan.
“Committing to the CBO solution was a key catalyst in our transition from struggling for survival to flourishing and expanding services. Remembering a time when our primary focus was maintaining cash to cover our next payroll, it is remarkable to finally be in a position of real financial sustainability.”
