National Small Business Week: What it’s like to partner with Noridian?

By: Rebecca Thompson, senior capture manager at Noridian Healthcare Solutions

This week is National Small Business Week which has been celebrated for more than 60 years by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). It acknowledges the vital contributions of America’s small business owners in all industries. In health care, small businesses play a crucial role in ensuring millions of people have access to quality care.

Our goal at Noridian is to elevate federal health care programs across the nation, but we can’t and don’t do it alone. We partner with small businesses who complement our capabilities to ensure we’re creating the most impactful solutions for our customers because if we don’t, people’s health care could be in jeopardy. We take that impact seriously and work with small businesses who share the same passion for enabling access to health care.

I feel lucky in my role to work with and seek out new small businesses for Noridian to partner with on either existing work or future projects. If you are small business, we are specifically looking for partners with these certifications.

  • Small disadvantaged-owned businesses
  • Woman-owned small business
  • Service-disable Veteran-owned small business

And like any great partnership, you may be wondering what it is like to work with Noridian. We strive to celebrate our small business partners all year long and that’s shows in the feedback we receive. Collaborative, agile and trustworthy are a few words our current partners use to describe working with us. Below is direct feedback from one of our small business partners.

We have worked with Noridian for over five years on multiple federal contracts. Their communication and collaboration on different projects are excellent. It is important for a small company to be able to provide training, not only job specific, but professional training as well. Noridian excels in providing training and mentoring to our staff. These attributes have helped us with employee retention. It is also important to know what is expected and to have requirements discussed and spelled out. Noridian provides attainable deadlines, proficiency, and production requirements. There are no surprises! These requirements have helped us educate and prepare staff for future projects. We are looking forward to a long future growing with Noridian!

In addition, our nearly 60 years of experience in the federal health care space paired with our history of on-time delivery and a culture of pervasive quality speaks to what you can expect when working with us. Our flexibility and adaptability allow us to easily scale for growing contracts. Plus, you’ll have access to our large group of subject matter experts in provider management, claims processing, medical policy, and medical review.

If you are small business dedicated to elevating health care programs, we’d love to connect with you to learn if there’s an opportunity to work together.
