Enjoin CEO to Speak on Mid Revenue Cycle at HFMA
April 21, 2022
KLAS A+ Rated and Leading CDI Service Provider Attending In-Person Conference
COLLIERVILLE, Tenn., November 1, 2021 —Enjoin, a physician-directed clinical documentation integrity (CDI) services provider, announces that CEO James Fee will present two sessions on Mid-Revenue Cycle at HFMA November 8-10, 2021 in Minneapolis, MN. The KLAS A+ rated clinical documentation integrity consulting company plans to also exhibit at Booth #413.
“We are excited to return to live conferences and celebrate 75 years of HFMA,” said James Fee MD, CCS, CCDS, and CEO of Enjoin. “During the conference, we will present on two important topics focused on financial sustainability and optimizing mid-revenue cycle.”
The first presentation will focus on how Vidant Health, a health system serving eastern North Carolina, aligned a physician advisor program to work with revenue cycle leaders to reduce denials and improve reimbursements during the COVID pandemic and will feature Dr. Fee and Vaughn Matacale, MD, CCDS, Director, Clinical Documentation Advisor Program. The second presentation will feature Dr. Fee in a rapid-fire case study focusing on how a methodical approach to CDI alignment through pre-bill reviews helped an academic health system in North Carolina improve ROI by nearly 1200%.
“Now more than ever, hospital executives see the need to increase revenue accuracy and mitigate risk by aligning CDI with organizational goals,” added Dr. Fee. “Organizations that have not strategically reshaped their approach to CDI in the face of these challenges may find their programs unsustainable.”

Presentation Schedule & Focus:
Empowered Physician Advisors Enhance Mid-Revenue Cycle Performance
Date and time: 11/9/21 2:40 PM – 3:30 PM CT
Location: Revenue Cycle Theatre
Speakers: James Fee, MD, CCS, CCDS, Vaughn Matacale, MD, CCDS (Vidant Health)
Financial sustainability for health systems is a top priority. With shifting payer mixes, reduction of inpatient admissions, increased cost and utilization tied to patient severity, and increased denials, it is critical for revenue cycle leaders to optimize mid-revenue cycle performance with a well-aligned physician advisor program. Dovetailing clinical integration into a patient-centric revenue cycle affords a sustainable return with physician advisors. This session will demonstrate the value of investing in a physician advisor program, identify KPIs that tie to revenue cycle goals and organization strategy, and provide a blueprint for success through the work done at Vidant Health.
Mid-Revenue Cycle Drives Financial Stability During Covid19: How one Academic Medical Center prospered
Date and time: 11/10/21 2:40 PM – 3:30 PM CT
Location: Revenue Cycle Theatre
Speakers: James Fee, MD, CCDS, CCS
Historically the healthcare industry has been largely untouched by financial recessions but much like everything else in 2020 that changed due to the Covid pandemic. Decreased revenue and increased operating costs became the new reality in healthcare. In reaction, many hospitals and health systems cut back programs, including coding and CDI, to the bare minimum.
This Rapid Fire Case study will highlight a different approach taken by a large tertiary academic medical center which proved to be highly successful in revenue recovery and stability in the face of a public health emergency. The process itself along with the key metrics used to monitor, assess, and act will be presented as well as a roadmap for ongoing program success
