Value Cycle Excellence: Chargemaster Review And Communication


Margene Holak, a consultant with Craneware will conduct a presentation and Q&A covering the basic requirements for a CDM, the value of the CDM within a healthcare organization for financial, operational, and clinical leaders, and specific guidance on how to use the CDM for communication to facilitate understanding on the organization’s shared goals for complete and compliant charge capture.
An up-to-date and accurate CDM is vitally important to the financial stability and success of a healthcare organization. Regardless of the payment methodology, the CDM remains the linchpin of the revenue cycle. Healthcare leaders within the financial, clinical, and operational realms benefit from solid understanding of the CDM in the fast-changing value cycle for healthcare.

She has been employed in local public health, specialty physician clinics, Federally Qualified Health Centers, and hospitals.

She holds a Master of Health Administration from St. Francis University and has been a member of the Health Care Financial Management Association for more than 20 years, previously in Illinois and currently in North Carolina.

In her work with Craneware, Margene uses her hands-on knowledge and experience, coupled with a love for teaching, as a Consultant to help customers in securing healthcare operational insights that advance business performance using modern revenue integrity strategy.
