As an HFMA Enterprise business partner client, Cerner provides benefits that help to greatly expand the expertise of its staff and enhance its professional brand. This is particularly true in all areas of the revenue cycle business unit.
Kelley Love, director of revenue cycle, for Cerner Corporation based in Kansas City, recently shared an inside perspective on the how her organization is enjoying the benefits of Enterprise membership, and how that membership is an intrinsic element in the organization’s overall strategy.
Love indicated that the centerpieces of Cerner’s strategy around Enterprise membership are encouraging its associates to obtain HFMA certifications — particularly the certified revenue cycle representative (CRCR) designation — and offering associates direct access to HFMA’s vast store of revenue cycle knowledge, information and insights. “Cerner became an Enterprise member because we wanted to expand our associates’ knowledge and give them the appropriate tools that HFMA provides to stay up to date with the revenue cycle industry,” she said.
Love emphasized Cerner’s desire to make sure its clients know about the certifications because they validate its associates’ commitment to professional development and their high level of dedication to the industry. “We want them to know that our associates really are passionate about the revenue cycle industry,” Love said.
