Tracy Goggin has been appointed assistant administrator – clinical operations, pediatrics.
Goggin will oversee the pediatric service line revenue cycle to include non-payor contract negotiations and management, as well as work closely with The University of Arizona Health Network corporate leadership on global corporate projects. Goggin recently was appointed project co-lead for ICD-10 Coder Education, project lead for Outpatient Practice Plan Coding Alignment and Subject Matter Expert for EPIC conversion.
Goggin has worked with the University of Arizona Department of Pediatrics since 1995. She started as reimbursement coordinator and for 14 years served as operations, reimbursement and coding manager, providing oversight of all clinical operations and revenue cycle activities for the department. During her time in this position, the pediatric team increased net collection rates, developed a group code model that eliminated coding backlog, and received high physician, staff and patient satisfaction ratings. She coordinated five major clinic renovations and moves, including planning, construction oversight, operational procedure implementation and change management.
“Tracy takes a great deal of pride in her work and has accomplished much in the department over the past 18 years,” said Heather Hartling, MS, senior administrator for the Department of Pediatrics. “We are very pleased with her promotion and confident in her outstanding abilities and commitment to pediatrics.”
“Seeing the advances in medicine and improved outcomes for our patients and being blessed to watch them grow up over the years and being a part of that success reminds me how important the work we do really is,” said Goggin. “Supporting the mission and faculty of the department and striving to provide continuous improvement in the department and the corporation is a great motivation.”
