The Effective Revenue Cycle - How providers can maximize profits by minimizing inefficiency
In his timeless and ultrapopular self-improvement book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey likens the principle of effectiveness to Aesop's fable about the goose that laid the golden eggs. As we all know, the story concerns a farmer whose goose begins laying one golden egg each day. The eggs provide the farmer with unimaginable wealth, but his greed becomes insatiable. Seeking instant gratification, he kills his goose so as to have all the golden eggs at once. After opening the goose and finding none, the farmer realizes that has destroyed the very source of his prosperity.
