The 2018 National Patient Financial Services (PFS) Week took place October 14-20, and Hollis Cobb Associates helped clients nationwide celebrate the yearly event. Showing our appreciation to our valued clients, we catered breakfasts and lunches for PFS staffs at provider facilities all over the country.
National PFS Week was started on October 18, 1989 by a proclamation from the U.S. Congress when AAHAM (American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management) petitioned Congress to officially recognize healthcare administrators and their hard work in support of provider facilities and patient populations throughout the nation. It is a tradition for Hollis Cobb to spend this week recognizing our clients and showing our appreciation as they continue to put their trust in us for many of their revenue cycle needs.
According to AAHAM, “This is a special week to honor those special people involved in healthcare administrative management; for managers to honor the individuals on their staffs, for the public to become aware of the profession, and for each of us to recognize our colleagues and ourselves.”
Our clients are creative in the ways they recognize their staffs and celebrate PFS Week. The event is covered in provider newsletters as well as in local newspapers. High achieving provider employees are often recognized as well as departments that work together as a team to improve the Patient Experience. Many of our clients come up with themes for the week and decorate their offices, organizing contests between departments.
The management and staff of Hollis Cobb is always happy to help our clients celebrate PFS Week with much deserved recognition, prizes and treats. We treasure our clients as they are more than business partners – they are our friends.
