I joined Lightning Step to make a difference in the way that treatment centers operate. Within facility operations there are multiple inefficiencies, from spreadsheets that vary wildly with no system in place, to the constant need for re-entering data from one system to another, leading to more errors, and requiring unnecessary extra staffing. Lightning Step is the solution the industry needs. The amount of staff overhead needed to run multiple systems is astounding.
Prior to Lightning Step, I was the Chief Financial Officer of a multi-state treatment company, which is one of the most successful teen and young adult treatment facilities in the country. With over a decade of experience, I want to apply my knowledge of billing software for mental health professionals, automated accrued revenue and business strategy to bring immense value to our customers. Given my experience, I’ve seen again and again that relying on manual processes creates unnecessary staff overhead.
I know your pain, I have been there, as have all of us on the Lightning Step team, who along with our partners have over 100 years of collective experience in the mental health and substance abuse treatment fields. For example, in one of my past experiences, one AR clerk worked on payment plans off of one spreadsheet and another person worked on patient account statements on different spreadsheets, while 2 analysts worked on accruing the revenue weekly and monthly in a completely different spreadsheet. The entire financial organization was operating across multiple spreadsheets, and why? Because there was not a good system for behavioral health that could streamline healthcare reporting and do all of this for them automatically. If Lightning Step had existed at that time, their staffing budget could have been reduced by 50% in the finance department alone.
