The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota
The Mayo Clinic said it has tapped Optum360 to run elements of its revenue cycle in a move the organization hopes will improve patient experience for the famed health system while reducing administrative costs.
Optum said Mayo patients will soon have access to its cost estimator while the provider will benefit from its streamlined system for authorization and pre-certification, enhanced claims editing functions and simplified billing for pre-care packaged pricing.
The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota will first install Optum360 and then roll out the new system later for other Mayo Clinic facilities.
Representatives from Mayo did not return a request for comment.
Optum360, which is owned by UnitedHealth, is the product of a joint venture between Optum and Dignity Health.
