He has more than 15 years of healthcare revenue cycle, IT and finance experience, and has successfully implemented both revenue improvement and cost reduction initiatives for hospitals, physician networks, DME companies, toxicology labs and other healthcare service providers nationally.
Throughout his career, Mr. Noonan has led performance improvement engagements that have driven more than $150 million in financial improvement for his clients. These projects focused on increasing yield of collectible net revenue through reductions in denials and underpayments, enhancing collectible net revenue through improved charge capture and clinical documentation, accelerating cash from both aged and unbilled segments of accounts receivable, and reducing providers’ cost to collect through centralizing organizational functions, improving productivity and / or reducing vendor spend.
Before joining A&M, he served as the Senior Vice President and National Practice Leader of the revenue cycle consulting group for MedAssets LLC. Besides having field responsibility for 100+ consultants, he also created several new product lines, including Clinical Documentation Improvement, and managed the development of workflow technologies for patient access, case management and patient accounts.
Mr. Noonan has experience in managing all aspects of large, complex projects and has led performance improvement and turnaround engagements for a wide spectrum of providers including academic medical centers, large multi-site IDNs, critical access hospitals, sole community providers and public safety-net health systems.
Most recently, he led a highly successful Epic installation for Yale New Haven Health System, which consists of three hospitals, including an academic medical center, two community hospitals and more than 50 provider-based ambulatory clinics. Each hospital’s measured financial performance for revenue capture, denial rate, AR Days and cash collection metrics exceeded Epic’s “top quartile” performance metrics.
Mr. Noonan earned a bachelor’s degree (with distinction) from the University of Virginia, School of Engineering.
