Revenue Integrity Leadership Exchange
The Revenue Integrity Leadership Exchange is an invitation-only event where approximately 25 of the most forward-thinking revenue integrity leaders from across the country network and learn from each other in peer-to-peer roundtable discussions. The program is crafted to allow a small group of peers—managers, supervisors, and directors of revenue integrity working in the hospital setting—the opportunity to share solutions, discuss common challenges, and begin to map a future course at their organizations.
The Revenue Integrity Leadership Exchange is not a conference. There will be no exhibit hall, no committee meetings, and no formal presentations. The National Association of Healthcare Revenue Integrity (NAHRI) and a select group of sponsors support the program, which will be hosted by NAHRI Director Andrea Kraynak and Associate Director Jaclyn Fitzgerald. There is no fee to attend, and we will cover your hotel accommodations and provide all meals if you choose to join us at the Exchange. You are only responsible for travel costs.
The Revenue Integrity Leadership Exchange is co-located with our annual Revenue Integrity Symposium, which will begin at the conclusion of the Exchange.
If you’d like to be considered for participation in the Revenue Integrity Leadership Exchange, please contact NAHRI Director Andrea Kraynak at firstname.lastname@example.org.
