MURRAY, UT – August 25, 2022 – R1 RCM Inc. (NASDAQ: RCM) (“R1”), announced today a 10-year partnership with St. Clair Health to serve as its primary provider of end-to-end revenue cycle management (RCM) services. St. Clair Health is a nationally recognized, integrated health system serving residents of Southwestern Pennsylvania.

The top goals of the partnership include optimizing revenue cycle processes, improving patient access platforms and strengthening workflow standardization.
St. Clair Health chose to partner with R1 because of its proven ability to deliver better outcomes and improve the patient experience. Another key factor was the alignment of culture between the two organizations, as both R1 and St. Clair Health value the contributions of current revenue cycle team members. As such, approximately 150 St. Clair Health revenue cycle employees will be welcomed into the R1 workforce with comparable positions, pay and benefits, as well as additional growth opportunities based on R1’s size, scale and resources.
