Over the past several years, the healthcare industry and the inspiring leaders working within it have experienced increased clinical, operational, administrative, and economic strain. And, of course, this collective strain has only been further exacerbated by the global pandemic.
However, because of leaders like our next guest, I remain hopeful and optimistic that we can positively impact and reimagine the health of the healthcare industry.
During this episode, we spent time with Jim Gaffney, the Chief Strategy Officer for Ensemble Health Partners, a leading innovator in revenue cycle management. Jim and his team empower healthcare providers to improve financial outcomes and patient experiences with an unrivaled depth of expertise and best-in-class technologies.
While together, Jim and I discuss his storied career, why he joined Ensemble, and how his company is helping their customers flourish during these times.
Additionally, we discussed the importance of company culture while being socially distant during the pandemic and the mission Ensemble is on with their Voices of Purpose campaign.
Join us for this important, informative, and inspiring episode as we continue to work together to move our healthcare industry forward!
