    HE Mag/May/jun/Finance [How to get the word out and gain Trust?]

    Dear Jason, Reading Magazine and noticing so much of what is going on is in need of one simple place that offers consolidated service, sensitive to needs of CEO's and CFO's.  But, like Health Information Exchanges, no one is moving.  Many factors: what happens if Supreme court makes a surprise decision?  If ACA goes away, does CMS Innovation go and with it, ACO's?  If ACO's go, what happens to Bundled payments and how does that affect Value Based Purchasing?  What happens if congress doesn't act and mandated budget cuts across the board get kicked in, what part of that is healthcare?  As a RHIO organization, we work with NQF to make quality reporting for VBP real and make cash available sooner, we work with CMS to make RAC audits electronic instead of by paper, again, freeing cash.  what does an organization today have to do to A)gain trust of hospital administration, and B) take part in HFMA Value Project?

    Hello Lou -

    Thanks for your question.  As I understand it, it seems that the key point you are looking for information on is what the Supreme Court is going to do.  As you can imagine, this decision has been covered extensively in the press and all of the scenarios have been thoroughly examined and the fact is very few people know what the court is going to rule (although that will probably change this month).  That being said, the consensus point of view is that no matter what the court rules, changes in healthcare are going to march on.  In fact, many of the major carriers and providers have been quoted in the past several weeks stating this very fact.  What this means practically is that if the Supreme Court invalidates either part or the whole law (highly unlikely), then we can expect to see either new federal or state legislation that will be drafted to address the issues raised by the Supreme Court while private industry will continue to move forward.


    The other part of your question is how to gain the trust of hospital administration.  For this, I would recommend you approach it similar to any business relationship and say what you are going to do and do what you say.  Relationships take time and effort to develop and most experienced hospital administrators are going to want to see your track record and results before entering into a relationship with you.  If you have experiences from other customers that you can use to demonstrate your business practices that will certainly help.


    This is a once in a generation chance to make healthcare better and organizations are moving quickly when warranted.
