Oncology Practice Education Series offered by McKesson Specialty Health
The Woodlands, Texas (July 16, 2012) —Given the challenging environment facing community oncology practices – such as rising costs, declining reimbursement and ever-changing regulatory and insurance requirements – it is more important than ever to focus on managing the business side of a practice with a particular emphasis on revenue cycle management. McKesson Specialty Health invites community oncologists and practice administrators interested in learning more about taking control of their financial performance to attend a free webinar at 1:00 p.m. EST (10:00 a.m. PDT) on Thursday, July 26, 2012.

“In order to thrive, community oncology practices must be proactive,” said Ryan Ciarrocchi, associate director of Innovative Practice Services for McKesson Specialty Health. “Practices must strategically and continuously monitor their business and ensure accurate reimbursement for their services.”
Drawing from his current experience with McKesson Specialty Health, as well as his former position as a community practice CFO, Ciarrocchi will present specific strategies intended to help practices gain greater visibility into practice operations and drive decision making. Topics include: monitoring and benchmarking practice performance; utilizing technology and reporting to identify trends and glean insights into revenue cycle performance; engaging the support of objective third-party analysis to realize more value from technology investments; and leveraging professional expertise to optimize business operations. At the conclusion of the presentation, Ciarrocchi will host an open discussion to address questions.
Through the Oncology Practice Education Series, McKesson Specialty Health offers a series of complimentary webinars designed to provide community oncology practices with information and education to help successfully negotiate today’s cancer care environment. These webinars are open to oncologists, practice administrators and clinical staff.
