Harmony Healthcare was founded on the principals of integrity, character, hard work and discipline
TAMPA, Florida (PRWEB) September 03, 2015
Harmony Healthcare’s astounding three-year revenue growth rate of almost 920 percent lands it on Inc. Magazine’s 2015 list of the 500 fastest-growing private companies in America.
Winning a place on this year’s list is a particular honor because the competition among companies was the fiercest the magazine has seen in its list’s 34-year history. The average three-year growth rate of companies on the list was a healthy 490 percent.
Founder and CEO Christopher H.G. Brown is thrilled his company’s huge success won it a place on Inc.’s latest list -- which in previous years has included well-known names such as Yelp, Pandora and LinkedIn.
Harmony Healthcare provides outsourcing, interim and direct-to-hire services. It also specializes in revenue cycle leadership and health information management professionals. His experts are highly trained, can spot problems and lead the client facility through the best processes, procedures and solutions.
Brown says the breadth of their expertise means they can provide support in areas ranging from clinical documentation improvement to coding and auditing and even with their GSA government compliancy at Veterans Administration hospitals and U.S. military bases.
“Healthcare revenue cycle outsourcing and staffing has been both exciting and challenging as so many mandates and variables are overwhelming our nation’s hospitals, insurance companies and consulting firms,” says Brown.
“Great leadership” is central to the companies that overcame a challenging economic environment, notes Inc. Magazine President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg.
Brown learned some of his best leadership lessons from the well-known, much-loved, and highly successful UCLA Basketball Coach John Wooden. Many of Wooden’s words of wisdom apply both on and off the basketball court.
“It’s not what you do, but how you do it,” is one of Brown’s favorite quotes from Wooden.
“This is our belief system and culture,” points out Brown. “Harmony Healthcare was founded on the principals of integrity, character, hard work and discipline.”
INC Magazine also notes that many of the entrepreneurs leading the listed award-winning companies could spot a trend and jump on it early.
Brown’s career spotlights his sharp entrepreneurial eye and his love of a challenge. He founded Harmony Healthcare in 2010 after recognizing the switch from paper to digital medical record/ HIM, clinical documentation improvement, ICD-10 and a myriad of other revenue cycle/HIM challenges would revolutionize the way hospitals and other healthcare facilities collected patient information, coded it, communicated with multiple insurance companies and collected revenue in a timely manner.
Previously, Brown founded and ran Burlington Wells, a finance, IT and HR contract and placement services company, until it was sold to Monster.com/TMP Worldwide in 2000. Then he started up Insights Search, a Health Information Management contract and placement company, and ran the company until it was acquired by On Assignment in 2006.
