MarinHealth Medical Center has become the latest health system to form a strategic relationship with Optum, announcing a partnership to advance its operational objectives in the revenue cycle and facilitate the patient experience for people living in Marin County, California.

Optum and MarinHealth will focus on operational efficiency for the health system, the organizations said. To do this, MarinHealth will employ Optum technology to streamline nonclinical administrative processes and simplify experiences for patients and providers.
