This session, co-presented by Cathy Dougherty, Vice President, Revenue Cycle Management at Gwinnett Medical Center, and Steve Levin, CEO of Connance, will examine how Gwinnett Medical Center utilizes new revenue cycle patient relationship management strategies to influence patient satisfaction and loyalty, which are increasingly important for both near-term cash collection and long term revenue generation.
