Matt Kiefer

Chief Officer of Information, Compliance & Development



Matt started off in a radically different direction having worked in law enforcement and restaurant management before pursuing his MBA and getting into healthcare in the Patient Financial Services Division of Florida Hospital Orlando (now known as AdventHealth) over 20 years ago.


Matt continued to work for 10 years as a volunteer reserve police officer for the city of Kissimmee (Florida) while also working full-time at Florida Hospital. He advanced to become the Director of Adventist Health System's past wholly-owned collection agency before it was sold and he has worked in executive-level positions at other agencies before coming to Preferred CMS. Matt is a past president of the Florida Collectors Association, current President of the FCA, a member of the Healthcare Services Committee for the American Collectors Association International, Education Chair for the FCA, and presents regularly on compliance and industry-related topics.
