Anthelio, the leading independent provider of comprehensive healthcare information technology (IT) services and business process solutions for hospitals and other healthcare providers, today announced a partnership with Nevada Rural Hospital Partners (NRHP), an alliance of 14 rural hospitals in Nevada, including 12 critical access hospitals.

Anthelio’s partnership with NRHP is part of a broader focus on providing critical access hospitals across the country with end-to-end services that span IT, financial and clinical areas, and that help them to comply with increasing financial and operational challenges and government mandates.

Anthelio will provide sophisticated business office solutions and coding services to NRHP member hospitals. This will provide critical access hospitals in the NRHP network with valuable tools and resources to drive significant operational efficiencies while building a framework to comply with government mandates.

“We are pleased to provide NRHP hospitals with remote coding and complete business office capabilities,” said Ron Kelley, Executive Vice President of Revenue Cycle Management at Anthelio. “Our solutions give clients access to hundreds of experienced professionals who are skilled in creating, coding and collecting healthcare claims for hospitals. Providers ranging in size from critical access facilities to larger health systems benefit by leveraging Anthelio’s expertise, size and scale. Our focus is on delivering the highest value to clients, helping them ensure realization of appropriate reimbursement and improved receivables.”

“Our partnership with Anthelio will provide member hospitals with access to experienced professionals who specialize in remote coding and business office outsourcing solutions,” said Joan Hall, CEO of NRHP. “Many member hospitals today are resource challenged and we are delighted to partner with Anthelio to provide our members with a resource that not only understands our unique market but will offer services tailored to the needs and challenges of critical access hospitals.”

NRHP recently joined with the Montana Health Network, and the Western Healthcare Alliance (Colorado) to create N2N Strategies, LLC, a regional hospital network comprised of 105 hospitals. This network provides a new platform from which to drive initiatives that support new efficiencies and a higher standard of care. Through its partnership with NRHP and N2N, Anthelio continues to demonstrate its evolving commitment to the critical access hospital market.
