Frank Corcino, has been in healthcare for the past 38 years. Starting in the healthcare debt collection business, he made a strategic shift into cash acceleration with early-age receivables. Currently Frank serves as a National Market Leader for Financial Operations in OnPoint Healthcare Partners, a boutique consulting firm in Texas. He acknowledged the ongoing struggles of hospitals with expense management, automation, and the need for a hybrid model of operations. As hospital operating incomes are at an all-time low and claim denials are growing, Frank sees technological solutions such as AI and NLP as vital to streamlining processes and reducing issues in revenue cycles. He mentions the successful use of software programs like OnPoint's virtual assistant in transcribing clinical notes for doctors, saving valuable hours each day. The episode ended with Frank discussing how he sees the future of healthcare, the likelihood of more outsourcing in the future.
