eAssist Honored as Best Workplace in Health Care & Biopharma by Fortune
SALT LAKE CITY UTAH, March 12, 2021 — eAssist Dental Solutions, the nation’s leading provider of virtual insurance and patient billing services for dental offices, has been confirmed by Great Place to Work® and Fortune as one of America’s Best Workplaces in Health Care & Biopharma™ 2021. “We were thrilled last October by becoming Great Place to Work-Certified™ when 93% of our workforce of more than 1,000 dental billing professionals praised eAssist as a great workplace, compared to 59% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company,” said CEO and Founder Dr. James V. Anderson. “We are especially proud to be named as the 10th best workplace in health care and biopharma during a year when a global pandemic put our organizations, our people and patients at extraordinary risk.”
The ranking considered more than 825,000 employee surveys from companies across the health care and biopharma industry, and Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job.
eAssist unburdens the office staff from the time-consuming and often frustrating job of dealing with dental insurance companies so they can better focus on serving patients and growing the practice. eAssisters have played an exceptionally vital role during COVID. After being shut down for months, dental practices had to re-earn the trust of their own employees and patients as a safe place to be. In-office teams needed to learn and implement new safety equipment and protocols, and communications processes, all while trying to recover and stabilize financially.
“We truly care for our people; we hire the very best, then we listen to them, invest in them, help them grow, and reward them well. In return, they work tirelessly to collect all that is rightfully owed to our clients by insurance companies. Never was that more apparent than this past year when our people showed extraordinary commitment by going above and beyond to maximize practice income while offices were closed, and even helping doctors apply for economic stimulus. Some of our clients may not have been able to maintain viable practices, continue to employ their teams or serve patients had it not been for the dedication of their eAssist partners,” explained Dr. Anderson.
Servant leadership is the #1 core value at eAssist. The entire management team knows that helping people be the best they can be – professionally and personally – is what will make the company its best. “When our people have a high-trust experience every day they are more productive, drive better business results and make an even bigger difference to our clients. I am so proud of what they have accomplished this year, and congratulate the entire team on all they’ve done for the health care industry,” concluded Dr. Anderson.
“Congratulations to the Best Workplaces in Health Care and Biopharma™. All of us owe a debt to the nurses, doctors, scientists and other colleagues in this industry over the past year, and we are honored to recognize the organizations that have done right by these pandemic heroes,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO Great Place to Work®. “The leaders of these high-trust, inclusive companies can expect excellent business results thanks to their ‘For All’ cultures.”
