WPC Services President Eric Mueller to Speak at CFO Healthcare Summit 2011

BRENTWOOD, TN--(Marketwire - Sep 20, 2011) - WPC Services President Eric Mueller will speak at the CFO Healthcare Summit 2011 this week at the Balboa Bay Club and Resort in Newport Beach, Calif. The annual summit brings together healthcare executives from U.S. hospitals and health systems and international solution providers to discuss alignment of technologies and processes to facilitate success of revenue cycle and operations management.

Mueller is a guest speaker at the invitation of Integrated Revenue Management (IRM), a revenue management best practices industry leader. As part of the opening keynote panel, he, together with Jack Duffy, co-founder of IRM, will co-moderate "Critical Thinking: An Imperative for Today's Healthcare Executive" at 8 a.m. PDT today. Data-driven decision support has become center stage as healthcare organizations navigate regulatory mandates and health reform changes. With this in mind, panelists will question the additional risks absorbed by organizations using disaggregated and incomplete information and discuss the following topics: transition to ICD-10, ACO development, Meaningful Use, HIPAA 5010 migration, Medicare reimbursements, and the importance of analytics in today's information-rich healthcare environment.

"The CFO Summit offers a perfect opportunity for healthcare leaders to empower their peers to make informed decisions. With the new payment models and health reforms holding hospitals fiscally accountable, this international collaboration of CFOs and solution innovators highlights the central issue of healthy financial healthcare," said Mueller. "I look forward to being a part of the CFO Healthcare Summit to help hospitals prepare for the major changes affecting their bottom line. Facilities have the opportunity to differentiate themselves in today's tough economy by taking advantage of the new laws and regulations to lower costs and increase efficiencies."
