Jodi R. Bloom

Principal

Jodi Bloom embraces the rare combination of clinical, financial and technical expertise. Jodi focuses on creative and analytical solutions to software implementation, contract coding, and data mining of both patient financial and clinical data.

Jodi provides multiple facility organizations with tools and expertise to show how people plus technology help health care providers receive proper payments. Most have recovered their software investment in the first year and have gone on every year to collect millions of underpayments and denied dollars they would have otherwise lost.

Jodi supports contract building and model building for negotiations in Concuity/PIC, Keane/NTT Optimum and Ascent(R). She writes and teaches Crystal Reports and SQL for Sybase and MS-SQL, particularly on Epic Clarity Resolute HB and PB, Ascent(R) and JDA Parathon.

She enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, snowshoeing, gardening, playing piano and singing.
