Sales Solutions Architect/Engineer

Pendrick is a leading buyer and servicer of healthcare debt in the US market. The company provides a critical service in the late-stage revenue cycle for the US based healthcare provider segment. For more than a decade, the company has worked with Top Tier healthcare providers (e.g., health systems, hospitals, physician practices, specialty providers) to support and enable their customers (patients) to pay their healthcare bills, thereby keeping down the cost of healthcare for everyone. 

With a core belief of practicing a patient-first mindset, and with its unparalleled compliance program, Pendrick has, since it was founded in 2010, built a robust operating system and platform which is fundamental to the company’s success. It has one of the strongest, if not the strongest, balance sheets in the healthcare debt sector which means that it is always able to support its clients by buying or leasing, and then collecting on, their outstanding patient payment responsibility invoices. 

The business was further strengthened in 2019 when the company was acquired by a premium Private Equity company, who has deep domain experience in this market segment. With their support, the company has gone on to:

  • Make strategic investments in people, data analytics capability & product innovation.
  • Purchase Phoenix Financial Services, one of the leading collections agencies in the healthcare collections market.
  • Install an independent Board of Directors which bring decades of healthcare experience to the company from their time running large healthcare companies.
  • Set a vision to build a much larger, more diverse business, which not only continues to support healthcare providers with their outsourced collections activities but also wishes to support them with the automation, and individualization, of their early-stage invoicing activities and make healthcare more affordable to consumers by providing financing options.

The successful candidate will be joining at an exciting time as healthcare providers look to drive increasing efficiency after the challenges created by Covid and as the company looks to pursue its growth and diversification strategies through both organic and inorganic means.
