The solution adds to R1’s existing physician RCM portfolio which services more than 27,000 physicians across more than 80 specialties and accounts for more than 30 million patient and clinician engagements annually. R1 currently provides revenue cycle management for some of the largest physician groups in the country, representing more than $7 billion in contracted net patient revenue.

R1’s physician RCM and practice management solutions complement high-quality clinical care and enable superior financial results by providing a consistent revenue cycle operations strategy across all care settings and reimbursement models. This new slate of provider organizations and patients will also benefit from R1’s recent acquisition of SCI, offering access to the broadest and deepest tech-enabled patient intake solution available.
R1’s investment in the physician RCM space is also demonstrated by the recent announcement of Vijay Kotte as executive vice president, physician services.
