The Hollis Cobb team will be manning booth # 48 in the exhibit hall at the Sheraton Hotel – Canal Street with representatives from our sales, client services and operations departments. The team is prepared to discuss Hollis Cobb’s unique customized solutions, particularly services in the area of patient access, and will be offering creative give-aways to providers who visit the booth.
The Region 9 conference organizers have put together a great agenda addressing topics including:
- State specific Medicaid updates

- Multiple revenue cycle case studies
- Price transparency
- Best practices on the hospital and physician sides
- Patient financial experience
- Accounting and auditing

Speakers include industry experts from healthcare systems, business partners, consulting firms and government. The conference will include large key note addresses covering broad topics and smaller concurrent breakout sessions for attendees who want to get into the weeds.
In addition, the conference will include a welcome reception in the exhibit hall on Sunday night, giving business partners the opportunity to showcase their booth give-aways and services and a party on Monday night at the famous House of Blues. The Hollis Cobb team is offering special gifts to providers who are interested in visiting booth # 48 and spending 15 minutes to learn about the company’s patient access service offerings including pre-authorization, pre-certification, pre-registration, scheduling, price estimation and others. What happens on the front end impacts the back end, and Hollis Cobb has developed custom services for our clients to address challenges throughout the entire revenue cycle. The team is excited about networking with established clients and meeting new faces in the industry while at the conference.
