Executive Director, Medical Practice Income Plan
Texas Tech University Health Science Center El Paso (TTUHSCEP) includes the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine (PLFSOM), the Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing and the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. The PLFSOM was established by the Texas State Legislature in May 2007 and the first class was seated in July 2009. In November 2013, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board granted approval to add the Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree to TTUHSCEP’s program inventory. The PLFSOM has been building its culture and capacity on high energy and innovation since then.
Medical Practice Income Plan (MPIP) provides revenue cycle management services to the clinical departments/faculty practice plan of the PLFSOM/Texas Tech Physicians of El Paso. MPIP now seeks an Executive Director to lead a staff of 78 in re-evaluating and re-invigorating billing, collections and financial analytics in support of physician practices and payor contracting. MPIP is currently functioning well; however, we are seeking a seasoned revenue cycle leader to further enhance current efforts to review all department capabilities and organizational structures. The next Executive Director will establish new metrics and best practices. The culture and morale of the department will optimize the impact of a fresh perspective from an inclusive, results-oriented leader.
Successful candidates must bring nine (9) years of director level experience in a physician practice, payor or health system organization. A master’s degree is required. Candidates must also demonstrate well-developed skills in project management, written and verbal communications and data-driven performance improvement. Demonstrable success working collaboratively with clinical departments to impact revenue is requisite. Innovation and enthusiasm for driving results will be essential.
