In order to establish a strong and stable foundation, the company continues to focus on bringing together a highly experienced senior leadership team.
“ApprioHealth’s ability to attract new clients, and even more importantly, to service them in the manner they need and deserve, requires incredibly strong people leading our development and client teams. I can’t think of two better people than Rodney and Jude,” said Donny Zamora, president of ApprioHealth. “Our goal is to deliver concierge-like services to our hospital and health system clients. We want them to know their needs are our top priority, and we will deliver on our promise to help them maximize their revenues. Rodney and Jude know how to run well-managed RCM programs, and our customers will directly benefit from their professionalism, intelligence and energy.”
Napier brings more than 25 years of experience in RCM, healthcare, information technology and consulting. In his new role, he is responsible for product development, marketing and sales in the RCM arena. He most recently was chief marketing and sales officer for Cresta Capital. Additionally, he served as vice president of customer success at Advanced Patient Advocacy. He is an active member of Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) as well as the American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management (AAHAM).
Crowell has more than 15 years of experience in the healthcare field with a concentration in sales and client management.

Zamora continued, “At ApprioHealth, we’re looking to change the way hospitals and healthcare systems envision enrollment, disability and third-party liability. It’s not just an opportunity to improve the bottom line; it’s also an opportunity to deepen relationships with their patients. Rodney and Jude will be instrumental in working with our clients’ patients to help them find and enroll in the payer and social services for which they qualify. The result will be patients who feel more supported, and hospital systems getting paid for the valuable services they provide.”
