Alpha Systems Hosts 12th Annual Conference
212 Degree’s: The Extra Degree
HUNTINGDON VALLEY, PA, August 15, 2014 — Alpha Systems held its 12th annual healthcare conference, August 7-8th at the Stockton Seaview Resort in Galloway, NJ. The conference hosted over 70 guests from some of America’s leading healthcare providers. Executives and Directors from over 40 hospitals and health systems representing 8 states were in attendance.
The topics for this year’s conference were chosen based on a survey to healthcare executives and directors. Presentations featured documentation improvement (CDI) from the physicians’ perspective, HIPAA Compliance and Revenue Cycle improvements and best practices. All attendee’s received the motivational book “212 Degree’s: The Extra Degree,” by Sam Parker and were encouraged to take the theme back to their organizations and instill the extra degree to improve their hospitals’ operations.
“First time attendee this year and boy, was I impressed,” said Patty Beatty, CIS Supervisor for Abington Health. “The presentations were excellent and you could tell the amount of time and effort that was put into each one. The message I received is evident…the Alpha team is dedicated and passionate about the level of service they provide to their customers. It was great meeting and chatting with the Alpha team.”
Day two of the event featured a healthcare executive break-out session and Introduction to Alphalytics™, a new denials prevention solution that rapidly and automatically uncovers hidden revenue risks that otherwise go undiscovered.
“The challenges in the healthcare industry are not going away and this year we wanted to focus on positive ways to drive success in an organization,” said Scott Griffith, President of Alpha Systems. “Our theme showcased the ways that Alpha Systems goes the extra degree to make a difference for our customers. At 211 degrees, water is simply hot, but at 212 degrees it is boiling and produces steam. With this comes power; so much that it can power a locomotive. By simply listening to their pain and struggles, we work as a team to come up with solutions to make their day-to-day operations run more efficiently. We wanted to share that mentality with our attendees so they can take that positive energy back with them to their departments and organizations.”
