16:45 EDT Tuesday, October 29, 2013

FRISCO, Texas (Business Wire) -- Conifer Health Solutions is the top revenue cycle management outsourcing vendor for ‘Hospitals 150 Beds and More' as ranked by healthcare providers in the 2013 Black Book Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) Outsourcing survey. The rapidly growing healthcare services company achieved No. 1 rankings for both “full service, end-to-end outsourced RCM operations” and “partial, extended business office services outsourcing.”

The survey, which is conducted independently by The Black Book, evaluated 141 RCM outsourcing vendors with insights from more than 3,000 hospital executives at 406 hospitals. Among the reasons cited by respondents for Conifer Health's top-ranking were the company's expertise in accountable care organization (ACO) development and payment reform preparations; analytics and business decision support; seamless electronic health record integration; and demonstrated savings and ROI. The survey emphasized the growing demand for revenue cycle management outsourcing partnerships as hospital leaders increase their focus on improving quality of care and access.

“Conifer Health's performance in this year's Black Book revenue cycle management survey is particularly gratifying,” said Stephen M. Mooney, president and CEO of Conifer Health Solutions. “The results confirm that clients trust our ability to deliver performance-driven, comprehensive revenue cycle management solutions and provide the expertise to help them thrive in the value-based reimbursement environment.”

The company also ranked first in 12 of 18 key performance evaluation criteria suggesting that its ability to deliver integrated, holistic healthcare services that help manage financial risk associated with health reform, enhance the patient experience and successfully align hospitals and clinicians is important to healthcare executives. Among the key indicators where Conifer Health led the field were breadth of offerings and delivery excellence, client satisfaction and propensity to recommend; client relationship and cultural fit; solution scalability and client adaptability; reliability; marginal value adds; data security; client support; and best of breed technology and process improvement.
