Presenters: Change Healthcare

Natalie Lawrence, Director, Business Development, Connected Consumer Health
Description: Biological and regulatory issues have converged in 2020, creating action items for providers, particularly those in the patient access function.  The CMS price transparency rule goes into effect January 1 and the impact of COVID-19 is ongoing, driving providers to look at new patient intake processes to help prevent contagious disease spread.  But rather than approaching these issues as compliance burdens, providers can use these events as an opportunity.  During this session, we'll review the CMS price transparency rule and what it means to your organization...and how you can leverage it to your benefit.  We'll also look at how providers nationwide are implementing touchless processes and how technology can help enable touchless patient intake while helping your organization acquire new patients.
