Dignity Health Key Developments
Dignity Health and Optum Launch Company to Simplify Patient Billing, Modernize Health Care Administration
Oct 14 13
Dignity Health and Optum have formed Optum360, a major new venture that combines the companies' revenue cycle management capabilities. Optum360 is dedicated to transforming the registration, documentation, billing, and payment system so it works better for hospitals, health systems and other care providers, and delivers a better patient experience. Optum360's revenue cycle management services can meet the large-scale needs of major hospitals and health systems, and enable new care delivery and risk-sharing models, such as Accountable Care Organizations. The venture joins Dignity Health's proven revenue cycle operations expertise and scale with Optum's market-leading technology, expertise in ICD-10 readiness, and a client base of thousands of hospitals and physician groups. Optum serves more than 300 commercial and public health plans, and its deep payer operations expertise will be applied to making administrative processes between payers and providers more direct, faster, and simpler. Optum360's patient-centric approach to revenue cycle management has the potential to fundamentally transform both administrative processes and revenue yield and accuracy -- from patient registration to financial resolution of payments -- in ways no other solution can. It is designed to reduce costs and make medical costs more transparent while helping hospitals, health systems, clinics, and physicians modernize administrative processes and ensure appropriate revenue yield. Importantly, the Optum360 solution provides a complete view of the care experience from the patient's perspective, helping providers deliver a simpler, more satisfying experience to their patients. Approximately 1,700 employees from Dignity Health and 1,300 employees from Optum make up the initial workforce of Optum360, which will be the exclusive revenue cycle services provider to Dignity Health's hospitals, clinics, and physicians.
