Freeman Jenkins Joins The Wilshire Group as Manager of Patient Access

Los Angeles (PRWEB) September 4, 2018 -- The Wilshire Group, a leading healthcare consulting firm, is proud to announce and welcome Freeman Jenkins to its team as a Manager of Patient Access. In this role, Freeman will focus on engagements with healthcare organizations with a goal of increasing efficiency and ease of use within patient access.

"In today's highly-complex integrated healthcare organizations, it is vital to have perspective that considers the entire scope of revenue cycle activity, not just a single function or workflow," said Hank Smither, Managing Partner of The Wilshire Group. "Freeman will join Matt Perron as we continue to recruit the "best of the best" to build the top Patient Access team in the industry. Freeman brings the knowledge and experience needed to ensure our clients continue to receive the high-level, hands-on support they expect from The Wilshire Group team."

Previously, Freeman was a Managing Consultant with Sagacious Consultants and Accenture where he focused on maximizing value for his clients across the front end of their revenue cycle. Freeman developed assessment methodologies to quantify the value of operational and information technology optimization, designed innovative programs to capture that value, and oversaw their delivery and success. Some key areas of focus for Freeman was improving ease of use and automation for authorization processes, developing strategies for increasing accountability and reporting transparency, and optimizing referral patterns and schedule utilization. 

Prior to joining Sagacious Consultants, Freeman worked at Epic on the patient access implementation team. Freeman worked with numerous clients of all sizes managing enterprise installs as an implementation executive and implementing scheduling, registration, referrals, and ADT modules.

Freeman received his BA in Economics and Philosophy from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and he now resides in Corvallis, OR. Outside of work, Freeman loves to spend time exploring the coast and mountains of Oregon.
