Revenue Cycle, Government, Receivables Leaders, and Partners Inducted into Hall of Fame
(MUNCIE, Ind. – October 25, 2018) – Ontario Systems, a leading provider of enterprise revenue cycle management software to the healthcare, accounts receivable management, and government markets, presented Kevin Lonergan, president of GetixHealth, with its fourth annual Pinnacle Award at PowerUp 2018, the Ontario Systems annual customer conference. The award is presented to individuals who have made outstanding and significant achievements in innovation, technology, and leadership over the course of their careers.
“We appreciate the opportunity to work with Kevin and his team at GetixHealth,” said Ontario Systems CEO Ron Fauquher. “Their growth has been astounding, and that’s due to the creativity, energy, and attention to customer service that Kevin has espoused since day one. We’re proud to work with him and the entire organization.”
“It’s truly an honor to be included among such an established group of visionaries who have been recognized before me,” Lonergan said. “GetixHealth has come a long way from eight years ago, when we were a company of one. Today, we are a global company with 1600 employees and 16 locations worldwide, proudly representing over 700 acute facilities and thousands of physicians. I had a vision to get here, but I needed a partnership that provided me the platform for our business. I found that in Ontario Systems. Our relationship with Ontario Systems shares the same culture of performance, character, and customer service that is the foundation of GetixHealth.”
Ontario Systems also honored healthcare, accounts receivable management, and government leaders in creativity, operational excellence and innovation with its annual Hall of Fame (HOF) awards. The company’s executive team selects honorees from a pool of nominations submitted by employees.
