Who we are
SCG Health is a value improvement organization focused on creating value in healthcare through workflow optimization, revenue cycle management and strategic planning in this post-health reform industry. Like the original concept for the Regional Extension Centers, SCG Health stands beside clinicians and office staff to evaluate, implement, support and optimize the implementation and ongoing use of electronic medical record systems, practice management systems and peripheral support systems to optimize value and manage ongoing operations. We operate several websites, most notably SCGhealth.com and MIPSacademy.com, among many others.
