Brecksville, OH (June 1, 2018) – MedData, a MEDNAX (NYSE: MD) company and a leading provider of patient-facing financial services for hospitals and health systems, today announced Emily Fisher as President.
Fisher has worked at MedData for over 20 years, progressing from Patient Advocate to Chief Operating Officer, where she has served since fall of 2016. She says she’s excited for the new challenge and honored to lead a company that is consistently at the forefront of the industry.
“I am grateful for this opportunity and eager to lead a truly innovative company that is helping define the future of the entire revenue cycle management industry. It is my privilege to work with such a dedicated team of employees, and together we will continue to honor the great responsibility our clients have given us by treating their patients with the tremendous care they deserve,” Fisher said.
Under Fisher’s guidance, MedData has seen its services expand and its business grow. She developed the company’s Government and Charity Programs into a full-service solution that evaluates patient eligibility for all available federal, state, county, and charity resources. She also conceived and developed the Complex Claims Programs, which have grown to include Appeals and Denials, Out-of-State Medicaid, Third Party Liability, and Worker’s Compensation services.
Fisher will report directly to Joe Calabro, President of MEDNAX. Calabro said the leadership teams at MEDNAX and MedData knew Fisher was someone with a passion for delivering patient-focused solutions, building strong client relationships, and maintaining the company’s vigorous culture.
“We feel strongly that Emily and the existing leadership team have the intelligence, work ethic, passion, and drive to take MedData to new heights,” Calabro said.
Fisher is taking over for Ann Barnes, who announced in May that she would be stepping down as president and CEO on June 15 to pursue other opportunities.
