Happy St. Patrick's Day - Slainte

For all those who celebrated St. Patrick’s Day, we hope you had a safe and happy time with your family and friends! 

Have you ever wondered where pinching those who are not wearing green on March 17 originated? There seems to be two different opinions surrounding this tradition. 

First belief is that Green is traditionally worn on St. Patrick's Day to honor the Emerald Isle, the Tradition holds that on that day, people are pinched as a reminder to wear green to honor the Emerald Isle. 

The second popular understanding is that St. Patrick’s revelers believe wearing green makes one invisible to leprechauns, fairy creatures who would pinch anyone they could see (anyone not wearing green). People began pinching those who didn’t wear green as a reminder that leprechauns would sneak up and pinch green-abstainers. 

Regardless of your belief, just wearing some green on the 17th each year seems like an easy way to avoid a friendly surprise! 😊  

The 2022 CostFlex User Meeting and Training Seminar

is just around the corner!

In fact, we are now five weeks away from gathering in Ft Walton Beach Florida for our first in person event since before the pandemic struck. 

Some important things to take note of include: 

  • It’s not too late to get registered as discounted room reservations are honored through March 25th.
  • In addition to CPE’s and education, there are many scheduled networking events over the three days to include socials, a dolphin cruise and a hosted beach side dinner. 
  • Prizes will be awarded throughout the meetings for participation and other shared input. 

CostFlex Staff are standing by to assist your travel needs and answer other event questions. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us. 

The team at CostFlex is looking forward to hosting your 2022 User Group Meeting. 

Knowledge sharing with your peers is considered

an invaluable resource among veteran CostFlex clients 

When people analyze what makes a profitable healthcare provider organization tick, they usually find that they have processes in place that they follow and some refer to these as their financial “recipes for success”. 

Its common to see many of these successful processes that are somehow unique to the organization and the managing staff operating them. 

Each year, CostFlex attempts to collect these individual recipes from our client family organizations and combine them into a master cookbook for everyone to share. 

While you may be having great returns from your use of the CostFlex DSS software currently, it cannot hurt to investigate new and additional ways to utilize your toolset to stay ahead in the game! 

We are asking for contributions of success stories and process descriptions from all our users to share with one another. 

These knowledge shares can be in any format and can include supporting report examples as well. 

All submitting authors will earn Amazon gift cards for your efforts!! 

We are sending reminders under separate cover and CostFlex staff will be contacting clients to assist and remind as well. 

Please help each other and participate! 

Deadlines are approaching, do not be left out for this year’s event! 

Just a few important dates to remember as a closing to this month’s news: 

  1. The last chance to register for the event is March 31st (we can assist with late entrie if approval still is in process at that time) and CostFlex staff will be reminding you over the next week to help any last-minute additions to our group. 
  2. Regardless of your registration date, getting room reservations under the group discount is important and is only currently guaranteed through March 25th. After this date, reservations will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis with the venue, and we will still be here to help you. Let us try to avoid the last-minute rush and get our rooms situated ASAP 😊
