65 Regional West Employees Transition to MediRevv in Agreement that Enhances Patient Experience
Coralville, IA – October 22, 2018 — Regional West Health Services, a health system providing award-winning patient care in western Nebraska and neighboring states, and MediRevv, a national revenue cycle management company, are pleased to announce a new, pivotal partnership. Under the agreement, MediRevv will bring new structure to the business office functions of Regional West and will transition 65 Regional West employees to MediRevv, all of whom will remain in Scottsbluff.
For Regional West, the agreement leads to one centralized billing office for the entire health system, which elevates the overall patient experience, builds financial strength into the organization, and ensures continued focus on high standards of care.
“It takes a team approach for effective financial management and we recognize that having a strong revenue cycle enables us to deliver quality patient financial care,” states Michael Ickowski, Chief Financial Officer of Regional West. “Our strategic business fit with MediRevv is based on our shared practice of putting patients first. We believe MediRevv will be an asset to our Regional West team and our patients.”
For MediRevv, the partnership expands its footprint nationally while enabling Regional West to be agile and responsive in the face of increasing regulatory pressures, shifting payment models, and growing consumerism, all the while building patient loyalty by providing an excellent patient financial experience
“This partnership is built on common values of trust and ‘doing what’s right’ — especially for the patient,” says Brad Baldwin, COO of MediRevv. “Effective today, we’re uniting Regional West’s commitment to service excellence and high standards of patient care with MediRevv’s best-practice, patient-centric approach to optimizing and accelerating revenue cycle operational efficiency and financial performance.
