San Diego, Calif. -- July 25, 2012 -- XIFIN, Inc., the company revolutionizing revenue cycle management for diagnostic service providers, has announced the appointment of David Byrd as VP of Radiology Solutions.

"We look forward to David's leadership role as we continue to build momentum in serving the diagnostic services market."
Byrd commented, "I am very excited to join XIFIN's team. XIFIN's cloud-based interoperable RCM platform is unsurpassed in the industry; it can digitally share vital data, communications, and services among disparate and distributed systems when, where, and how the data is needed. Given current volatile radiology market conditions, radiology practices' success will ride to a large degree on their ability to exchange information. XIFIN really understands this, and I look forward to building upon the company's extraordinary accomplishments and strong vision to further expand this key market sector."
