Crossroads Health Partners with UEI College to Develop the Next Generation of Medical Billing Professionals

Crossroads Health joins forces with UEI College to facilitate externships for students completing UEI’s Medical Billing program.

Crossroads Health Partners with UEI College to Develop the Next Generation of Medical Billing Professionals

Crossroads Health and UEI College have partnered to aid UEI’s Medical Billing & Insurance Coding students in graduating with entry level knowledge and skills in the field of medical billing. By combining Crossroads Health’s innovative approach to revenue cycle management with UEI's track-record of producing qualified candidates, the medical billing and insurance coding professionals graduating from UEI College will be well-equipped for the dynamic workforce they intend to enter.

By partnering with UEI College, Crossroads Health has the opportunity to work with ambitious medical billing and insurance coding professionals who are passionate about starting their careers on the right foot. Take it from Crossroads Health’s Chief Technology Officer, Bret O’Connor: “We’ve built a company culture that’s passionate about innovation and solving complex problems for healthcare providers. The status quo has often led to financial complications too large for most healthcare providers to tackle alone. We’re exposing our externs to methodologies that eliminate these problems at their source, helping providers improve revenue cycle efficiency and generate more positive patient outcomes.”

By choosing Crossroads Health as a participant in their externship program, UEI College offers their students a unique opportunity to join a remote workforce tackling one of the most pervasive problems in healthcare financial management, credit balances.


The Results of our Partnership

The results of this partnership have been tremendous, numerous UEI graduates have landed full-time positions at Crossroads Health immediately following their externship, and more students are applying to extern at Crossroads Health every month. 

Peter Hinojosa, a UEI graduate, runs the externship program at Crossroads Health in addition to his role as a Senior Credit Balance Analyst. Peter is an avid supporter and advocate of UEI College and credits much of his career advancement to their Medical Billing & Insurance Coding program. In his words, “I get the opportunity to show students the risks of having credit balances on open A/R. While the students are educated on the processes and procedures to work accounts correctly, they also get real-world experience and job opportunities following the program.”

According to Hilda Velarde, Director of Career Services at UEI College, Riverside: “We are very happy to have formed this educational partnership with Crossroads Health. All of our student feedback has been stellar on the externship experience they are receiving.  Our externs rave about how detailed and supportive Peter has been with them and how much he has taught them.  They enjoy his training style and are genuinely excited to be doing their externship. As a result, they have grown more passionate about the medical billing and insurance coding field.  Personally, it has been a pleasure working with Peter and I look forward to a long and successful partnership with Crossroads Health.”
