San Diego, Calif., January 13, 2015 – CHMB announced today that NCH Medical Group has signed an agreement extending their partnership with the nationally recognized leader in revenue cycle management services. NCH Medical Group is affiliated with Northwest Community Healthcare and treats more than 60,000 patients in over 22 specialties from the northwest suburbs of Chicago. CHMB has provided RCM Services and analytics to NCH Medical Group since 2010, working closely with the medical group as they acquire new practices to meet the healthcare needs of their community.
NCH Medical Group will be transitioning all of its locations, providers and healthcare staff to EpicCare and EPIC Resolute Ambulatory to align with NCH as it implements Epic in 2015. In preparation for the transition, the medical group sought a RCM services vendor that would deliver the same performance despite the change to a new platform.
“CHMB has been a valuable partner with NCH Medical Group as we continue to grow and add providers and specialists,” says Susan Nelson, MD, vice president of Physician Operations. “They consistently provide valuable analytics which are important when making strategic business decisions.”
CHMB will participate with the hospital internal billing operations in training and planning for Epic implementation across the medical group’s multiple locations. Once live, CHMB will be responsible for processing more than 600,000 encounters annually, providing onsite director level resources to work hand-in-hand with NCH Medical Group and EPIC representatives.
“We are very excited to have been selected again as an RCM Services partner by NCH Medical Group as they transition to Epic. Our commitment to their success is the cornerstone of our partnership. Strong communication and mutual goals lead the way in keeping focused on our end results,” said Janet Boos, President of CHMB. “Our operational leadership is ready and excited for the challenges ahead while staying focused on the on-going RCM services on their current platform. Our top priority is making the transition over to Epic as seamless as possible for the NCH Medical Group and their patients.“
