Hello. I’m Sarah Droogsma and have been in Healthcare for over 20 years. Currently, I’m the senior manager of our Advisory Services team. The main role of the Advisory Services team is help you maximize the power of Change Healthcare’s Revenue cycle management solutions.

The products Advisory Services team supports are the following:

  • Clearance Patient Access Suite
  • Assurance Reimbursement Management TM
  • Acuity Revenue Cycle Analytics TM
  • Pulse Revenue Cycle Benchmarking TM

You can view an overview document about the Revenue Cycle Management Advisory Services here. The Advisory Services team helps review your goals and metrics and explain how the product can help you achieve them. Then we help tailor a solution that meets your organization’s goals. Your Advisor reviews metrics with you on an ongoing basis to be sure you are moving toward achievement of your goals.

As a part of that process, a Change Healthcare Advisor educates your team on how to get the most out of our products. Ongoing training is also available through the Change Healthcare Knowledge Center through a variety of learning channels.

Implementing new technology can sometimes be complex and challenging for staff that need to grasp new concepts and workflows quickly. We understand that education is a critical component to your success. We educate our clients in the knowledge and skills necessary to build competency and proficiency with our solutions to maximize your ROI. We have several educational opportunities available for you and your team. A detailed catalog of offerings is available here.
