"Having Chris’ leadership and experience at the table will be invaluable for our clients," - Kevin Ormand, Principal and co-leader of the Revenue Cycle practice, The Chartis Group
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 14, 2016
The Chartis Group, a national advisory services firm dedicated to the healthcare industry, is proud to announce the addition of Christopher Giuliano as a Principal in its Revenue Cycle practice. Mr. Giuliano will be part of the firm’s leadership team advising healthcare providers on best-practice revenue cycle improvements including strategic and end-to-end revenue cycle transformation, and multi-disciplinary, programmatic solution development.
Christopher Giuliano is well known in the healthcare industry for his depth of experience in revenue cycle and operations. He has a proven track record leading end-to-end transformation initiatives that deliver multimillion-dollar net revenue improvements. During his 26 years in the industry, he has served as a strategic advisor to more than 100 provider organizations. These organizations include leading academic medical centers, integrated health systems, ambulatory care providers, physician organizations, home infusion therapy providers and home care agencies.
Prior to joining The Chartis Group, Mr. Giuliano redesigned the intake, pricing, billing, collections and cash posting operations for one of the nation’s largest home infusion therapy providers. His advisory experience also consists of revenue cycle integration planning for hospital mergers and acquisitions to accelerate cost-to-collect improvements, and the development of customer-centric patient access programs.
“Having Chris’ leadership and experience at the table will be invaluable for our clients,” says Kevin Ormand, Principal and co-leader of the Revenue Cycle practice at The Chartis Group. “We are in the midst of unprecedented change and complexity in the healthcare industry with an increasing percentage of provider revenues at risk. Revenue cycle transformation is no longer about optimizing the current state; there must be true integration across the organization, operating revenue cycle as more of a business enterprise and leveraging it as an intelligence engine. There is untapped data in the revenue cycle that can fundamentally drive contracting strategies and financial performance.”
“I find Chartis’ distinctive experience and progressive ideas to be key components to helping healthcare providers achieve their potential in the evolving healthcare environment,” says Christopher Giuliano. “I look forward to continue working with clients to achieve optimal revenue cycle models that will meet the increasingly complex and demanding needs of leading healthcare providers.”
Mr. Giuliano holds a Bachelor of Science in computer studies from Pace University and is a Board Certified Fellow in the Healthcare Financial Management Association. Throughout his career, he has been an active speaker on a variety of revenue cycle topics. His industry presentations at Healthcare Financial Management Association and American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management conferences cover such topics as: Improving Your Bottom Line Through Bad Debt Management; Demystifying ICD-10; and Implementation of the Proposed 501(r) Regulations with a Revenue Cycle Perspective.
