From Transporter to Thought Leader
Jonathan Wiik has 25 years of healthcare experience in acute care, health IT and insurance settings. He started his career as a hospital transporter and held various roles (clinical operations, patient access, billing, case management and more) at a large, not-for-profit, acute care hospital, before serving as the hospital’s chief revenue officer. He also served in various roles at a prominent commercial payer. His cumulative expertise gives him vast knowledge of — and keen insight into — the inner workings of the revenue cycle across the continuum of care. He currently serves as a Principal of Healthcare Strategy at TransUnion Healthcare.
Wiik is an active advocate of legislative changes that evolve the healthcare industry. He’s the author of Healthcare Revolution: The Patient Is the New Payer and his latest book, Healthcare Evolution: Helping Providers Get Paid in an Era of Uncertainty, and frequently speaks as a thought leader at state and national events and conferences.
