Center of Excellence

We understand that today's healthcare providers are challenged with meeting the demands of an ever-changing healthcare landscape, especially with the implementation of ICD-10 and major components of the Affordable Care Act. The Center for Revenue Cycle Excellence was established to be your premier training provider so that staff is prepared to handle forthcoming regulatory and policy changes affecting all healthcare providers since the inception of the Medicare and Medicaid programs.

Our Mission

HBS Center of Revenue Cycle Excellence is an academic community composed of students, faculty, and professional staff. The mission of the school is to prepare capable women and men for all positions in Revenue Cycle Operations; to provide individuals with the background necessary to pursue advanced study; and to provide the larger community with opportunities for professional and organizational growth in the business of healthcare.

Students can also receive system training on various Patient Accounting applications so that they become as proficient as any PFS employee with multiple years on the job. We customize our curriculum to cover your specific workflows and software and provide classroom training and testing on-site at your facility for unparalleled convenience.
