Episode Sponsorship

This episode is sponsored by REVA Global Medical, who specialize in placing medical virtual assistants with practices in healthcare – medical, dental, and others. Medical virtual assistants are a great option for tasks in your office that are important, repetitive, and a bit lower on the skill level. Think insurance verifications, prior authorizations, database management, scheduling patient appointments, and the like. A medical virtual assistant is a legitimate option instead of hiring someone new, which is especially hard these days. REVA Global Medical trains their virtual assistants in healthcare, HIPAA, insurance, customer service, and other skills necessary to support each client assignment. REVA assigns each client their own virtual assistants, manages those virtual assistants, and delivers weekly productivity reporting to clients.
