ApolloMD’s growing RCM offering bolstered by new director of client services
The group practice and partners of ApolloMD welcomed Kristen Barfield as Director of Client Services supporting the Revenue Cycle Management with a focus on Coding and Documentation. Barfield brings with her over 15 years of experience in health care that includes vast knowledge of revenue cycle, coding, and practice management. As ApolloMD continues to expand offerings in these service categories, Barfield’s expertise provides valuable insight.
Barfield expresses excitement and enthusiasm for the opportunity saying, “The fact that ApolloMD is owned and operated by physicians was a big point for me. I like that and I also like the broader practice management aspect, too. With the recent coding changes, there’s a learning curve. We’ve got a plan in place… with a huge focus on documentation, education, coding, realignment, and capturing our acuity. That’s my main priority as I settle into my new role.”
Supporting strong leadership, developing collaborative teams, and focusing on the relationship between physician wellness and quality patient care all factor into the corporate culture of ApolloMD, driving the company’s growth and success. Barfield shares a commitment to these priorities as well a dedication to the overall health industry.
