In this episode, we talk with Valerie Barckhoff, MBA and learn about her work as a Principal in the Healthcare Advisory Practice at Windham Brannon. Valerie has deep experience in health care revenue cycle management and optimization and gives a tour-de-force overview of how artificial intelligence is being applied in this area right now and the potential uses in the future. Revenue cycle management is about far more than billing and collecting and Valerie’s insights reveal there’s a lot more “juice in the orange” when it comes to creating processes that are efficient and effective, pleasing to providers and patients and that can actually improve health outcomes. Valerie shares with us a seminal story from her teen years that sparked passion for the business of healthcare that has lasted over a 20-year career. Her pet peeve is laced with good advice and her sage wisdom is evident too.
