Change isn’t easy for any healthcare organization, especially one with 16,000 employees and 1,400 clinical staff members who treat more than 83,000 patients annually, including 28,000 new patients each year. But with its billing department handling 1.2 million annual claims and generating more than 842,000 patient statements annually, The University of Texas M. D.
