Over the past two decades, she has developed an impressive career in the health care and revenue cycle industries -- exceling in a range of positions, from sales and marketing to director and executive-level roles. In addition, her entrepreneurial wherewithal enabled her to build and sell two successful revenue cycle consulting businesses.

Wood joins SCI with more than 20 years of experience in the patient access management and revenue cycle space, with demonstrated expertise in process re-design, workflow enhancement, training, project management and system implementation for a range of health system types. She first interacted with SCI Solutions during her time at Erlanger Health System, where she was responsible for the implementation of SCI's Schedule Manager® and Provider Network Manager® solutions, as well as bringing the solutions to multiple provider offices to reduce network leakage and maximize referrals. As a solution consultant, Wood brings her advanced industry and field knowledge to help identify and accelerate growth opportunities, while working with prospective clients to understand how SCI can help them in the areas of patient access and care coordination. 

In addition to their years of health care experience, Pace and Wood both have deep roots in the subject of patient access, which positions them to uniquely represent and serve the company and its clients. Pace was previously a vice president of the health care consulting and patient access services divisions at NCO Group, Inc. She also completed multiple patient access projects, including designing in-take centers for health systems and hospitals, as well as planning, building and managing a patient access call center. Additionally, Wood has been a certified healthcare access manager (CHAM) since 1993, and received the Marian Blankenship Award for significant contributions in access management in 2011. Previously she served as the education chair for the National Association of Healthcare Access Management (NAHAM) education committee.
