The SSI Group, a health care financial technology company based in Mobile, has named Diana Allen its new president and chief executive officer.
Allen most recently served as an executive consultant for Culbert Healthcare Solutions in Massachusetts. Previously, she served as CEO of Physicians Professional Services. She also is former vice president of revenue cycle for Somnia Anesthesia Inc.
The SSI has been under the leadership of James Lyons, who has served as president and chief executive officer since 2012 and who has been with SSI for 23 years.
“We are pleased to welcome Diana to The SSI Group, and are fortunate to have found someone with such a depth of expertise and a track record of success in revenue cycle leadership,” Lyons said. “Diana brings a wide range of revenue cycle experience on the provider, health plan and vendor fronts to the role of president and CEO.”
The SSI Group partners with health systems and health plans to optimize revenue, reduce costs and increase visibility into enterprise operations. The company works closely with its clients to establish benchmarks and goals based on industry standards.
“I am excited to continue the extraordinary success The SSI Group has achieved in putting actionable revenue cycle data into the hands of healthcare revenue cycle executives across the country,” Allen said. “I respect the work SSI has done, especially around its claims analytics solution, which uses artificial intelligence to predict, down to the hour, when claim payment will be received from payers. In an era of transformation in healthcare, access to actionable insight is key to helping revenue cycle leaders establish an informed approach to managing their organizations’ financial operations.”
