Louisville, KY – January 4, 2018 - MedAssist, a company that hospital leaders rely on to simplify the financial experience for their patients and the people of their organizations, today announced the addition of two senior-level healthcare revenue cycle professionals.
Karen Dewing joins MedAssist as Vice President, Client Development. She brings a wealth of experience and knowledge in Healthcare Revenue Cycle Management, IT and Consulting. Her role will focus on business development and client satisfaction in the MidAtlantic region. Karen achieved success serving in senior and executive level roles with Streamline Health, Optum, McKesson and KPMG. Additionally, she carries experience in roles supporting revenue and clinical initiatives for multiple hospitals and physician practices. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of West Florida, and is also a graduate of their Executive MBA Program.
Karen remains an active student and contributor of industry as evidenced by professional achievements as a Certified Healthcare Financial Professional (CHFP) and as a Fellow (FHFMA), both certifications from the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA).
Bruce Pulver joins MedAssist as Vice President, Strategic Account Development. He comes to MedAssist with 30 years in the healthcare industry. Bruce has demonstrated success in many roles with companies including McKesson, MedeAnalytics and most recently nThrive (formerly MedAssets). His experience include sales of services and technology, sales support as a subject matter expert, client relationship management, implementation, support, education, and product marketing. Bruce graduated from Florida State University receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Business Marketing with a minor in Music.
Recently, Bruce became a published author. His book, “Above the Chatter, Our Words Matter”, is about the power and impact words have on thoughts, intentions, actions and ultimately outcomes in life. He often speaks to groups on the subject sharing his personal journey and how to apply what he’s learned in their life and work. With proceeds from his book, Bruce donates copies of his book to organizations across the country including Family Services departments of hospitals, Ronald McDonald Houses, Homeless Shelters, Orphanages, Schools, and Little Free Libraries.
“Ultimately this investment in talent is an investment in the value our hospital customers want and need to achieve in their pursuit of mission”, said Paul Holland, Executive Vice President of MedAssist. “The addition of Karen and Bruce represents a uniquely high caliber pair of professionals who believe in supporting our continued journey to view the business through the lens of our customers”.
Insured or not, everything that goes into the non-clinical part of the patient experience is a complicated maze of financial traps and hoops… for both patients and hospitals. Hospital leaders can now simplify the financial experience for both patients and the people of their organization. Hospitals achieve a stronger financial foundation, while patients experience clarity and a path to peace of mind about how to pay for their care.
