SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Innovaccer Inc., the Health Cloud company, today announced Patrick Gardner has joined its leadership team as General Manager of Revenue AI. Patrick brings a broad range of experience in revenue cycle management (RCM) and product strategy, building world-class teams, and creating successful go-to-market strategies that drive growth and help providers improve revenue performance.
In his new role, Patrick will lead Innovaccer's global RCM growth strategy for the company’s Revenue AI solution suite on the Innovaccer® Health Cloud.

"What excites me about Innovaccer is how we’ve harnessed the unified patient record to accelerate digital transformation in every respect—going beyond how patient care is delivered to consider all stakeholders, including the revenue cycle team—to create a truly unified healthcare ecosystem that can impact both clinical outcomes and financial performance,” Patrick said. “We help providers end the data fragmentation that hampers revenue cycle insights performance in most if not all provider organizations. With Innovaccer as their partner, they can gain the unified insights they need to prosper in this era of incredible competitive, market, and regulatory pressures. It’s truly an exciting time to be in healthcare and at Innovaccer, as we help our customers embrace the next generation of revenue cycle technology.”

Patrick also spent nearly a decade at McKesson, where he was an executive in product management and General Manager of Revenue Cycle. His expertise in product management was recognized by the Technology Association of Georgia as Product Manager of the Year in 2012.
“Patrick’s career has been tightly focused on helping providers leverage the latest technology to improve clinical, financial, and operational performance,” said Abhinav Shashank, cofounder and CEO of Innovaccer. “It’s rare to find someone with Patrick’s depth of knowledge and experience in RCM, as well as a deep understanding of how to help providers achieve the interoperability and data readiness they need—and in almost every case, lack—to accelerate revenue cycle transformation. We’re confident Patrick will be a force for driving growth and ensuring our customers’ success.”
