Amy Ruedisueli, the chief financial officer for McKenzie Health System, was recently invited to participate in a discussion on the “Financial Challenges in Rural Healthcare” by CPSI. Advancing community healthcare, CPSI delivers healthcare information solutions for community hospitals, serving more than 900 hospitals in 45 states and the District of Columbia.
The meeting convened several key CFOs from facilities around the country and focused on the question “What keeps rural healthcare leaders up at night?” In addition to discussion on external factors such as payers and systems, new regulatory requirements, technology and community dynamics as well as internal factors including resources, infrastructure, patient satisfaction and retention, finances and more, the session also sought to answer “What has been, or should be, done to address the major influencers to rural healthcare’s financial health?”
“It was an honor to be invited to share my perspective and insights on the challenges and success stories in rural healthcare today,” Ruedisueli said. “We are always stronger when we work together, and the team assembled appreciated how interested CPSI was with our questions and potential solutions.”
