IC System is proud to announce a new strategic partnership with Rural Health Alliance (RHA). The partnership makes IC System a preferred vendor for debt collection and patient account receivables, giving RHA members the opportunity to access low collection costs and high agency service levels well beyond what would otherwise be accessible.
“We are excited to partner with IC System on this much-needed service. Their track record of success and quality service delivery is definitely in alignment with the goals of Rural Health Alliance,” said Erik Malchow, President, at RHA.
IC System will provide members-only pricing for all RHA member organizations as a preferred vendor. The partnership aligns with RHA’s vision of supplying exclusive value and cost reductions for providers and, in turn, patients. In addition, the relationship between IC System and RHA means members can save on debt collection costs without sacrificing quality or the patient experience.
RHA’s mission is to provide a platform for “ongoing communication, coordination, cooperation, integration, and unity of purpose for member healthcare entities.” RHA also seeks to “improve patient care while containing healthcare costs.” Their alliance grants members access to healthcare resources that might not be accessible to individual providers.
RHA is a member-owned and completely member-focused group purchasing organization with a national footprint in healthcare sectors of Hospitals, Ambulatory Surgery Centers, Assisted Living/Long Term Care Centers, Clinics, Medical Groups, and Hospitality.
IC System works with over 4,000 clients, from health systems to private practices, with an average tenure of 16 years. The healthcare industry represents over 70% of the company’s client mix.
“IC System is committed to providing positive, empathetic experiences for our clients’ patients,” said Kristina Gursky, Director of Healthcare Client Success at IC System. “But now, our partnership with Rural Health means we can provide big hospital pricing for RHA members. That will save RHA members a lot of money and significantly impact their bottom line.”
Kristina added, “Best of all, RHA members will benefit from how IC System provides positive patient experiences and navigates them through the complex world of medical billing and healthcare collections—all with special member pricing.”
