We're also living in an era where hospital systems, like HCA are doing big stock buy backs, so bring on all the revenue anywhere to help finance those?


Be aware of Optum 360 as their goal is to take over outsourcing all hospital revenue cycling where they can get the contracts, just signed up with Mayo, Dignity Healthcare is 49% owner of this with Optum, aka United is 51%. Very scary.


Mayo and Optum have already become bed partners with Optum Labs and a few other ventures as well. Doing big complex billing means big dollars for Optum and they know it. Don't forget too that Cerner licensed the old Ingenix/Optum revenue cycling there with their EHR, so they look to slide in easier there I would think as 360 fires all the billing folks and rehires them back at cheaper wages and worse benefits. Go read GlassDoor job reviews, lots of them there.
