Sierra Madre, Calif., March 15, 2021 – Wound Care Advantage (WCA), the nation’s leading wound care consulting firm, has announced the expansion of its revenue cycle team to help meet the growing financial needs of hospitals affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The revenue cycle team will be led by the newly appointed Vice President of Revenue Cycle Management, Vanessa Ploessel.
“As hospitals transition away from expensive management contracts to bring the wound care and hyperbaric service line inhouse, the need for revenue cycle consulting has significantly increased to ensure hospitals are financially strong in their wound care efforts,” stated Ploessel. “WCA has a very ethical approach to revenue cycle support and I am proud to offer my skills to strengthen WCA network programs,” added Ploessel.
Ploessel received her master’s degree in Healthcare Administration and has been part of the WCA team for over 4 years. Previously, she held the position of Director of Denial Management at WCA where she focused on reducing clinical and technical denials for clinics and facilities.
In her new role as VP of Revenue Cycle Management, Ploessel will assist WCA network facilities in becoming financially profitable programs by providing education, strategies and recommendations to increase revenue cycle optimization while maintaining the highest level of compliance. Ploessel’s forward-thinking initiatives will bring a deep and innovative level of support that allows for customized revenue cycle solutions.
Mike Comer, Founder & CEO of Wound Care Advantage stated, “Vanessa’s passion and dedication to healthcare has been evident since she joined our team many years ago. We are thrilled to have her strategic vision and leadership in assisting our wound care partners with increasing their revenue and overall patient care.”
