Celebrating Patient Access Week: Setting the stage for an excellent patient experience

In the face of our quickly changing health care environment, there is one constant: the patient access department. The first interaction patients have often begins with patient access, therefore it is extremely important to have a friendly face to connect with – and that’s what we recognize during National Patient Access Week April 2-8.

“We look for positive representatives that will deliver superior customer service with a friendly demeanor when hiring. Our patient access team has goals centered on the exceptional patient experience,” patient access senior manager Sarah Goad said. “It has been proven that skills can be trained, but kindness and warmth must be present for the first impression. Our job is to ease their concerns in a caring and efficient manner.”

Patients sometimes feel apprehensive and need support. “When people aren’t feeling well we need to be fast, accurate and, friendly,” patient access team member Dee McCoury noted. “If we don't do our job right, the problems echo throughout the hospital.”

In an average day, the patient access department handles a variety of requests from many persons including physicians, nurses, patients and ancillary departments. The patient access team is responsible for all admissions and must be familiar with the procedures of various insurance companies, including responsibility to provide financial counseling and point of service cash collections.

Patient access is responsible for the delivery of the critical components of the revenue cycle, as well as keeping the hospital compliant with the many regulatory agencies, maintaining patient safety through correct patient identification practices and responsible for providing extraordinary customer service skills in situations that are often difficult. These dedicated team members fill the roles of receptionists, registration, insurance verification, financial counseling, and scheduling.

During National Patient Access Week, we acknowledge our special goodwill ambassadors in the patient access department for setting the standard of care that all our hospital staff aspires to achieve. To those team members we say, “Thank you for your amazing work!”

Auditions set for 2017’s "Broadway Comes to Greeneville"

Beginning Feb. 7, auditions will take place across the region for this year’s “Broadway Comes to Greeneville.” Youth ages 7 to 17 can audition to be cast in the annual event, which is a production of the Mountain States Foundation and presenting sponsor Consumer Credit Union.

 

Now in its sixth year, “Broadway Comes to Greeneville” raises awareness for Niswonger Children’s Hospital.

 

The cast will have the opportunity to perform alongside Broadway stars, who will be traveling to Greeneville to create a Broadway-style show featuring the selected area youth talent. David Elder (“Guys and Dolls,” “42nd Street”), Gary Mauer (“The Phantom of the Opera,” “Les Miserables”), Elizabeth Southard (“The Phantom of the Opera,” “The Sound of Music”) and Emily Skinner (“Jekyll & Hyde,” “Billy Elliot,” “Side Show”) will be performing at the event on Sunday, April 30, at 3 p.m. at Niswonger Performing Arts Center (NPAC) in Greeneville, Tenn.

 

Any youth interested in auditioning should prepare a classical song, country song or Broadway song to perform for the judges. There will be a one-minute performance time for each vocalist, and for convenience, there will be a wireless speaker, piano and CD player available at each audition. However, if vocalists want to use an accompanist, they will need to bring their own. Vocalists can only audition once.
