    "Optimizing Revenue Cycle Management for a Thriving Private Practice"

    Speaker:  Annie Alexander,  RN  MBA  CMRM

                     CEO, Co-Founder of CiBR Solutions

    Patients want the highest quality care when they walk into the doctor’s office – But when doctors are tasked with managing their back-office work in addition to providing patient care and are not paid what they’re owed, patient care gets impacted one way or the other. Medical practices leave a lot of money and time on the table when they’re not streamlined.

    As a Registered Nurse it is my passion to ensure patient care is maximized and provider burnout is minimized. Some of the ways this is achieved is by getting reimbursed more and faster and streamlining the process to ensure clinicians have time on hand to do what they love doing.

    Never has there been a more critical time for private practices to focus on getting reimbursed faster and to generate more cash flow. The pandemic has brought with it not only rising costs and billing complexities but has seen a rise in deferment of elective procedures. Telehealth services have become the norm and the process of online scheduling, bill-pay and payment collection have become the requirement to become high tech and easy as other industries. Consolidation of private practices with hospitals has been on the rise but it does not have to be that way!

    In this session we will go over the key steps to generating more cash flow and helping independent medical practices thrive in business. We will also look at some of the outsourcing benefits and myths associated with outsourcing services.

    Please join the session to learn more about helping independent medical practices not only remain in practice but also thrive in business!

    • Independent Medical Practices – current and future state
    • Top challenges faced by independent practices in 2020 & post- pandemic.
    • Solutions to these challenges
    • Strategies to generate more revenue

    Annie Alexander RN,MBA,CMRM

    I am a Registered Nurse by background. I began my nursing career as a pediatric nurse but traversed through adult medical surgical and oncology units. I always had a passion for business and decided to pursue a graduate degree in business administration. After completing my MBA, I joined Cerner Corporation in 2010. I quickly went from a consultant to the Solution Architect and then to a Solution Designer. As a Solution Designer efficiency and simplicity became the focal points for my work. I extensively collaborated with the engineering teams and other functional teams to develop the most viable and efficient products. I enjoyed automating steps and processes, utilizing existing data in algorithms to do the work. This helped clinicians to complete their work in an efficient and satisfying manner. Thereafter I served in the Product Management division as Solution Strategist, Sr. Strategist and Product Group Manager. My focus was to set the vision and direction for Revenue Cycle Management Analytics products. I led teams and navigated the matrix structures to ensure we developed products of highest quality. In 2020, I decided it was time to begin my own business and thus started the CiBR Solutions - a medical practice consulting firm focused on helping small medical practices generate more cash flow and thrive in business. We are part of national network of Revenue Cycle Management offices that have a track-record of making practices more streamlined and profitable. I am grateful for this chapter since it gives me the platform to bring together my educational background and work experience to improve patient care and minimize physician burnout.

    "Stress Relief Techniques
    To Improve Your Daily Life"

    Speaker:  Leah Morgan
    Core Balance Yoga Center owner & KCYTT trainer

    Leah will share techniques to control and relieve your stress level and increase your strength and flexibility in this presentation. These techniques will create an overall improvement of your daily life at work or home.  She will be sharing information she has honed over years of experience and will share excellent techniques to relieve your stress level.  Whether your goal is to begin or grow a daily practice, increase your strength and flexibility, or learn how to control stress, Leah can help attendees with some easy to learn ways to achieve your personal goals. 

    After Leah shares her techniques to control stress in the first portion of the meeting, be prepared to move your chair away from the table to move around a bit. She hope we all are willing to participate in some fun movement. She will lead us through it. She's looking forward to the meeting and sharing with you! 

    Leah began her yoga journey as a student many years ago out of a curiosity. Wondering what all the fuss was about, she rolled out a mat at a local health club and gave it a shot. With that first class she started down a path of yoga that ultimately led to Leah becoming a 200-hour+ trained yoga teacher. Studying with inspiring yoga leaders Leah has honed her unique style, which is a fusion of breathing, alignment, honoring your body, living in the moment and having fun.
