Health Programs Faculty Chair Stephanie Donovan talks outsourcing with Becker’s ASC Review

For those of you studying in one of our healthcare degree programs (or if you simply find the subject matter interesting!), we wanted to share two recent articles that feature Stephanie Donovan, one of our Assistant Professors of Health Information Management who is now the Faculty Chair of Health Programs at Peirce.

Stephanie weighs in on a trend that is very important to the healthcare industry -- outsourcing. She offers Becker’s ASC Review reporter Laura Miller her insight on qualities to look for when outsourcing billing and collections, as well as how to determine if outsourcing or in-house billing is the right approach for ambulatory surgery centers.

Check out Laura’s articles to read about these decisions facing many healthcare administrators. If this subject matter is of interest to you, consider a degree in health information management -- this area of focus offers great opportunities to work in the non-patient-care side of the healthcare field, a rapidly expanding part of the industry.
