Our Professionals

Ray Berry

Chief Executive Officer

Ray possesses over 25 years of experience in healthcare revenue cycle management in both the hospital and payer environment. HBS is his third start-up company as a founding executive. In 2002, Ray created HBS with his vision of what defines a true revenue cycle consulting company. He believed that what healthcare providers needed went far beyond a traditional collection agency service. Therefore, Ray developed HBS as a denial management and transitional outsourcing company.

This innovative business model would transcend the simple service of recovering revenue and, instead, bring the healthcare provider and their staff the knowledge and skills that are so critical to “in-house” denial management. Prior to HBS, Ray became well known during his tenure as the State of Florida regional administrator of behavioral healthcare and remains active serving on various boards in the behavioral healthcare arena.
