By: Elizabeth Lauzon, Public Relations Specialist

As 2015 winds down, everyone here at SCG Health is thankful and proud to have worked with our clients this past year to simplify the business of medicine one patient encounter at a time. While this is the time of year to look forward to goals for 2016, and we’re certainly excited about what we have planned for the upcoming year, it’s also a time to look back at some of the highlights of 2015.

Social media continues to be the main way for us to share information and not surprisingly, there were certain topics that were consistently top hits in 2015.

Top Three Social Media Topics

1. Mobile health and technology in health care: Topics such as mobile health and insurance, and savvy smartphone users were among the most popular. Check out this top read article from AIS Health about the challenges facing health insurers.

2. ICD-10: This article from RCM Answers on ICD-10 and proposed safe harbors was one of the most popular on ICD-10.

3. Electronic Health Records: Knowing how to use them to your advantage were of particular interest. Health Data Management’s article on EHRs and analytics led the trend.

Client Support

The core of our work and mission is helping our clients. Here are a few highlights of client work from 2015:

  Educational programs for clearinghouse customers on a variety of revenue cycle management topics such as the modernization of denial management and Medicare quality reporting  

"SCG Health has brought a fresh new perspective to our webinar program. Jen is a tremendous speaker and industry leader. For over a year now SCG Health has been contributing the industry’s hottest topics and subject matter to our program, we couldn’t be happier with what they have done for TriZetto Provider Solutions." 
-Heidi Budreau, TriZetto Provider Services

   Specialty contract negotiations, integrating care coordination, enhanced community services and value-based payment models  

 "Before Infectious Disease Physicians started working with SCG Health, I asked myself the following three questions. Why am I doing it? What the results might be? And what would I consider successful negotiations? Once I found the answers I was able to convey to Jennifer and her team what IDP was seeking in contract negotiations. Jennifer and her team have been efficient, reliable and relentless in seeking the outcomes we desire. SCG Health has displayed individual commitment to this effort – displayed exceptional team work, within SCG Health and encompassing IDP."
-Patricia Mullins, IDP Physicians

   Compliance support and guidance reinforcing specialty needs while clinicians and administrative staff are still seeing patients  

"SCG Health has been supportive and knowledgeable. A remarkable resource capable of handling our most difficult issues in a timely manner. I feel very fortunate to have the expertise of SCG Health to rely on."
-Dianne Beach, Maryland Pain Specialists


We look forward to continuing the relationships with our clients and navigating the business side of medicine in the upcoming year. And all of us here at SCG Health wish you and your team a happy and healthy New Year!
