Listen to Konye's full interview on the MGMA Insights podcast here

Konye Ori is the women’s health service line administrator at IU Health since 2020. In this role, Ori has led DEI changes as well as large strategic changes that improve the experience of staff, clinicians and patients alike. One such change is a shift toward unification amongst IU Health’s women’s health line locations so that the many locations can function as a single entity – necessitating centralization of triage, phones, billing and coding, surgery scheduling, and chart checking. In response to industry-wide issues with retaining MAs, Ori redesigned his service line’s clinical workflows to mitigate MA dependency.

David Comiskey
