Posted by Chris Comeaux on Sep 2, 2019 2:14:07 PM

As I shared in my last blog, I have come to believe there is a 7th Fundamental that should be part of everyone’s organization system: cause and purpose. Without cause and purpose, the other elements of an organizational system are essentially null. Cause and purpose provide the basis by which the other fundamentals can be built.

Mission-Driven Growth In Hospice: Why Sales Shouldn't Be A Bad Word

Posted by Alyson Cutshall on Jul 26, 2019 12:10:46 PM

The greater these components are exercised by each, the greater the return on investment.

Understanding Credentialing Services

Posted by Dottie Love on Jun 12, 2019 11:38:27 AM

Credentialing is a loaded term.  It means different things to different people.  If 10 different people were asked, "What is credentialing?"  we would get 10 different answers.  It is often used to describe provider credentials verifications, facility privileging and payer enrollment.  And yes, these do describe a portion of what credentialing entails.
