REL maintains a client-centric approach and caters to a broad clientele, including healthcare facilities such as hospitals, hospital systems, private and group medical practices, as well as ancillary services like ambulance, laboratory, and radiology.

“Clients’ revenue cycle operations are often weighed down by staffing challenges and difficulty reaching budgetary requirements to attain necessary technology to do what we do as well as we do. This, combined with ever-increasing compliance demands aimed at creating a fair environment for patients increases pressure and limits the provider’s ability to recover balances,” adds Kris.
