The Revenue Cycle Management Bootcamp for Emerging DSOs

Sponsored Content: Zentist

Zentist, the automated dental insurance claims processing platform, launched the dental industry’s first revenue cycle management (RCM) bootcamp designed specifically for professionals working at or building dental support organizations (DSOs), especially dentist entrepreneurs.

The purpose of the bootcamp is to bring together DSO industry professionals and RCM subject matter experts in an interactive learning environment. Attendees will participate in educational and networking sessions. They will gain exposure to the strategies of leading organizations in such processes as eligibility and benefits verification, claims submission, payment posting, denial management, accounts receivable (A/R) follow up, as well as RCM data analytics.

“Unlike the U.S. medical industry where I’ve previously worked with hospitals and health systems, there is a lack of dental industry specific curriculum for professionals working within or overseeing the RCM function at DSOs,” said Sina S. Amiri, the co-organizer of the bootcamp. “Most existing dental industry conferences covering topics related to dental insurance billing attract attendees working at solo practices and are often taught by those who have not had the benefit of gaining operations leadership experience at a DSO.”

In addition to Mr. Amiri who ran the national operations of a private equity backed DSO prior to building industry partnerships at Zentist, instructors teaching at the bootcamp will include:

Dr. Tarek Aly – Co-founder & COO of OrthoDent Management and Modern Smiles 

Teresa Williams – Chief Operations Officer at Dental Express

Ellie Naderi – Operating Partner at Latticework Capital Management 

Jenny Organista – Director of Revenue Cycle Operations at Underbite Management

Dr. Wayne Silverman – Dental Director at Dominion National

Harold Gornbein – Founding Partner of Apex Reimbursement Specialists

Farhad Attaie – TED Resident and Co-founder of hellosmile

Shadan Shamloo – Director of Strategic Accounts at Zentist

“Zentist has recruited subject matter experts who understand the challenges of operational scalability and the complexities of RCM centralization, particularly in a fast-paced, mergers and acquisitions-driven environment. I’m thrilled to be sharing my personal expertise in the DSO industry with the attendees of their bootcamp,” said Dr. Tarek Aly, Co-founder & COO of OrthoDent Management and Modern Smiles. 

Topics that are covered in the RCM bootcamp include:

  • Improving the cash flow and enterprise value of your DSO
  • Tracking and analyzing key performance indicators
  • Developing RCM leaders within your organization
  • Setting up correct fee schedules and insurance profiles 
  • Insurance verification, credentialing and fee negotiations
  • Understanding the applications of robotic process automation, artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, computer vision and advanced technologies 
  • Healthcare law, state regulations and compliance for RCM
  • The role of clearinghouses in the dental industry and how to select the right one for your dental group
