Learn firsthand from the vendors how we can help you achieve your organizational goals and put our technology to work for you, dispelling the thought that a valuable working partnership cannot be created or maintained if the vendor is not onsite. This session will serve to realign thought processes that vendors do what works for them versus truly supporting their clients in the best manner possible. We all have the same goal in mind…quality health care! Vendors recognize there is no singular way to accomplish this and can reference best practices used nationwide to help determine what will work best for your facility.
- Learn what a vendor can bring to an organization.
- Learn how we use experts in the transcription field to assure fast, accurate documents for your facility.
- Learn why you should not fear using a vendor, understanding that you and your facility uniquely matter to your vendor!
Audience: supervisors, managers, directors, business owners, and senior executive team.
