Conifer Health Announces Multi-Year Contract Extension with NorthShore University HealthSystem
FRISCO, TEXAS – March 9, 2021 – Conifer Health Solutions, a subsidiary of Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE: THC), announced today a multi-year contract extension with NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore). Building on a relationship of more than 20 years, Conifer will continue to provide physician revenue cycle services to NorthShore through 2024.
Conifer’s comprehensive accounts receivable (AR) services, coupled with enhanced revenue cycle performance insights, equips NorthShore with valuable data for optimizing systems and processes. This high-touch support is designed to accelerate cash collections and drive operational efficiencies.
“Over the many years of our relationship, Conifer continuously demonstrates its expertise as a service provider and its support as a strategic partner,” said Debbie Kirkorsky, NorthShore’s senior vice president of physician revenue cycle. “The team has proven its value to our strong performance time and time again through their extensive revenue cycle knowledge, insightful analytics and innovative leadership.”
In addition to continuing services, the extended contract included the integration of Swedish Hospital (formerly Swedish Covenant Health) which joined the NorthShore system in January 2020. Conifer’s supporting role in the integration and transition of Swedish Hospital’s physician revenue cycle to the new operating environment successfully concluded late last year.
“We are extremely proud of all we have accomplished with NorthShore over the past two decades and look forward to many more successful years to come,” said Matthew Bayley, M.D., Conifer’s chief commercial operations officer.
