CHICAGO, Feb. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — R1 RCM Inc. (NASDAQ:RCM), a leader in technology-enabled revenue cycle management (RCM) services to healthcare providers, today announced plans to build the R1 Technology and Innovation Center in Salt Lake City in collaboration with Intermountain Healthcare, a large healthcare organization in the Mountain West region.
Scheduled to open in May 2019, the 30,000 square foot facility will be used to evaluate patient needs, test product concepts and elevate creativity and design, tackling some of the biggest problems faced by patients and healthcare organizations. R1 expects adoption of technologies such as AI (artificial intelligence) and RPA (robotic process automation) in the revenue cycle to play a significant role in helping healthcare providers improve their operations. Along with the development of enhanced RCM solutions, the Center will also feature a virtual revenue cycle model office, serve as a client experience center and support the growing tech community in Utah.
“We are pleased to partner with Intermountain Healthcare to develop the next wave of innovative revenue cycle management solutions for healthcare providers,” said Joe Flanagan, President and CEO of R1. “This Technology and Innovation Center leverages R1’s technology investments, Intermountain’s leadership role in healthcare, and the rich pool of talent available in the Salt Lake City area. We are committed to investing in technologies that help providers address these and other challenges which may arise as payment models evolve.”
“The Technology and Innovation Center will position Intermountain Healthcare, R1 and Salt Lake City at the forefront of the healthcare industry’s financial transformation,” said Intermountain Healthcare’s Executive Vice President and CFO, Bert Zimmerli.
A grand opening is planned for May, in which R1 customers, partners and members of the media will be invited to see how the Center will be used to help shape the future of the healthcare industry’s financial transformation.
