Health Care Finance Expertise
Health care finance is one of Jeanne’s strengths. She goes far beyond the standard accounting and auditing procedures in establishing excellent financial operations for her clients.  Where the CPA and auditor GAAP analysis ends, Jeanne’s work begins.

At the University of Iowa, during significant managed care growth, Jeanne built the revenue cycle system and achieved excellent rates for all the hospitals and clinical specialties.  This revenue cycle system received perfect scores by outside auditors.

Mentoring, Facilitation, and Collaboration
Jeanne has successfully mentored management teams through periods of instability. She has facilitated the renewal of relationships with Boards and physicians, as well as addressed staff and community concerns.

Collaboration is a hallmark of Jeanne’s approach. So much so that she has been recognized nationally for her work.

She received the Health Resources and Services Administration Award from the United States Department of Health and Human Services for meeting Organ Donation Breakthrough Collaborative goals ahead of schedule. This success involved collaboration with staff across a large academic medical center, as well as external regional organizations.
