THE WOODLANDS, Texas, May 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cardon Outreach, one of the largest, national providers of integrated revenue cycle management services announced today that the company was selected by Sanford Health to provide financial care services at its healthcare facilities across five states.
Cardon Outreach has delivered Medicaid enrollment and eligibility services for Sanford Bemidji Medical Center over the past eight years and impressed the leadership team. This expanded work together will build upon the combined success of the two organizations, and will make Cardon Outreach's services available across the health system in Sioux Falls, Fargo, Bismarck, Worthington and Aberdeen.
"Our collaborative approach helps us find additional opportunities to fulfill Sanford Health's mission of advocating for those without financial access to health care. We are confident that we can continue to provide successful results across the Sanford Health system," said JoAnna Justiniano, Cardon Outreach's Vice President of Operations for the Greater Midwest region.
Cardon Outreach's services for Sanford Health include the placement of ACA-Certified Application Counselors within the facilities, as well as within the community to engage, educate and enroll patients in eligibility programs. The ability to provide this level of support despite the geographic size of the region requires a well-defined infrastructure of professional field advocates able to screen patients in real time. This is achieved through Cardon Outreach's MPower platform, an industry-leading, proprietary technology built from decades of experience with county, state and federal assistance programs.
"The collaborative approach of Cardon Outreach allowed us to have a seamless transition," said Angela McCarvel, Enterprise Executive Director of Patient Access Management for Sanford Health. "Cardon Outreach's ability to leverage automation at the facility and system level allowed all of us to continue our focus on patients and the communities we serve."
