Chicago — May 15, 2018 — The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) recently reviewed R1 RCM’s Technology-Enabled Revenue Cycle Management Service using the Peer Review process. After undergoing the rigorous review, R1 has been awarded the “Peer Reviewed by HFMA®” designation.

R1 offers healthcare providers the means to transform and integrate their revenue cycle operations across settings of care, greatly improving net patient revenue, cash flow and the patient experience while demonstrably reducing the cost to collect. Whether across the enterprise or within specific modular areas of the revenue cycle, the contractual relationship is built to deliver on the client’s goals.

“We are focused on improving the financial performance of health systems, hospitals and physician practices so that they may continue focusing on delivering the highest quality care to the communities they serve,” said Gary Long, EVP and Chief Commercial Officer. “We are honored to have achieved the Peer Reviewed designation and look forward to helping other HFMA members achieve their financial goals.” 

HFMA's Peer Review process provides healthcare financial managers with an objective, third-party evaluation of business solutions used in the healthcare workplace. The rigorous, 11-step process includes a Peer Review panel review comprising current customers, prospects who have not made a purchase, and industry experts. The Peer Review status of the healthcare business solution and its performance claims are based on effectiveness, quality and usability, price, value, and customer and technical support.

“We’re pleased to have R1 RCM achieve their HFMA Peer Reviewed designation,” said HFMA President and CEO Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA. “The HFMA Peer Review process assures our members, through a rigorous evaluation, that the reviewed healthcare business solution meets an objective, third-party assessment of overall effectiveness, quality, and value."
