R1 Ranks #1 in KLAS for Ambulatory RCM Services
In 2023, KLAS named R1 as the market leader in Ambulatory Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) Services for the third consecutive year.

Additionally, Cloudmed, an R1 company, and a leader in Revenue Intelligence™ solutions for healthcare providers, has been named by KLAS as the market leader in Denials Management Services. This marks Cloudmed’s first win in the new Denials Management Services category.
