Optum partners with 2nd healthcare system in a matter of days, adding almost 2,000 employees

Eden Prairie, Minn.-based Optum secured its second partnership agreement in a matter of days with a healthcare system to take over its revenue cycle management and information technology operations.

The agreement to take over Owensboro (Ky.) Health's operations will result in 575 of the healthcare system's employees moving over to Optum in April. The move follows a similar partnership agreed to Jan. 5 with Maine's Northern Light Health involving 1,400 of that system's employees.

"Optum is honored to be working with Owensboro Health to reinvent traditional health care models and systems, improve efficiency and address complex social and economic factors,” Dan Schumacher, chief strategy and growth officer of UnitedHealth Group, the parent company of Optum, said in a statement.

Owensboro Health, whose system includes three hospitals, operates in its home state and in Indiana, serving approximately 500,000 people.
