In a new case study, Saint Anthony Hospital details the challenges it faced in the often risky world of revenue cycle management for an independent community hospital. By forming a key partnership with Accretive Health, however, Saint Anthony was able to overcome many of those challenges with a solid business partner and patient advocate.

“Saint Anthony Hospital needed a revenue cycle partner that would help them advocate for their uninsured patients as well as deliver results through improved processes.”

With a strategic partner in its corner that was fully aligned with the hospital’s mission, Saint Anthony was able to realize cost-savings and increased cash.

This case study details the operational hurdles Saint Anthony Hospital faced and how it began to overcome them with a strategic partner in its corner that was fully aligned with the hospital’s mission.  Together, Accretive Health and Saint Anthony Hospital developed a custom strategy that leveraged skilled and compassionate people, best-in-class processes, and leading-edge technology and analytics.
