Join author Jonathan Wiik and experts from Ability®, TransUnion, and ZOLL® Data Systems as they share key insights into today’s financial environment. They’ll cover timely topics, such as:
Consumerism, transparency, financial literacy, and AI – are these trends here to stay?
How is the regulatory environment impacting your ability to get paid and the patient’s experience?
What will drive revenue and collections efforts in the near future, and what strategies will help providers get paid?
Relying on aggressive financial policies and collection tactics won't help your organization adapt to the "patient as payer" model, especially after the pandemic. Our industry needs strategies and innovations that will help patients easily navigate the financial responsibilities associated with their care.
Join this expert panel for an insightful conversation around the patient and the future of the patient financial experience. Attendees can request a complimentary copy of Jonathan’s book: “Healthcare Evolution: Helping Providers Get Paid in an Era of Uncertainty."

Tyler Williams is a successful entrepreneur whose experience in healthcare reimbursement, business, and data combine to provide deep industry insight into the challenges faced by medical providers and healthcare professionals. As the RCM Director of a large, pediatric emergency medicine firm in the 1990s, Tyler experienced the challenges of bad payer tactics and obtaining accurate and timely payer information from the patient. His struggles inspired him to pioneer what the industry now knows as insurance discovery and healthcare identity (or demographics verification) and to launch the company, Payor Logic. Under Tyler’s leadership, the company grew into a multi-million-dollar organization serving more than 90% of the ambulatory outpatient market. Payor Logic was acquired by ZOLL Data Systems in 2019. Today, Tyler serves as Director of Strategy, AR Optimization for ZOLL Data Systems and ensures that providers have access to high quality data reflecting the patient’s unique financial characteristics to enable optimal and compliant reimbursement. Tyler is a nationally recognized speaker on AR optimization and innovation.
