Webcast Summary

Delivering high-quality care isn't just about having the latest medical technology. Your ability to serve patients also requires modern accounting technology to ensure a strong financial foundation. Yet if you're still relying on manual processes to manage your close, your financial foundation is shaky at best. Keeping up with the need for more care means knowing exactly what you can spend and when. Yet a spreadsheet-driven close hampers visibility and transparency—bad news for growing healthcare systems with ever-expanding patient loads.

Spreadsheets aren't efficiently scalable. Healthcare organizations are merging rapidly. This translates to more patient accounts, but adding more spreadsheets and even more accounting personnel isn't the answer.
Join this Webcast to learn how to:
  • Gain real-time visibility into patient and clinical information;
  • Improve accuracy and avoid formula and formatting errors common to manual data processes; and
  • Dramatically increase efficiency while automatically reconciling millions of transactions.

About the Speakers

Susan Parcells, Senior Director of Finance Transformation and Product Expert
BlackLineSusan Parcells

Susan Parcells, CPA, CGMA, is Senior Director of Finance Transformation and Product Expert for BlackLine. Throughout her career as an auditor and in various management positions within accounting, Susan recognized that the traditional manual processes within the financial close were not only inefficient but often exposed companies to risk. She began to focus on process improvement around the close, helping accounting teams reduce their workloads and instead use their analytical skills to focus on other value-added activities, all while enhancing controls around those processes. She now spends her time attending conferences, trade shows, and other venues to educate companies on ways in which they can optimize their financial close processes along with having great control around them. Her greatest passion is helping others, which makes this role at BlackLine a perfect fit.
