NTT DATA’s Optimum™ Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) Suite was chosen by Robert Wood Johnson to be deployed at their Rahway, NJ location as well as the newly acquired Somerset location in Somerville, NJ.  With a strong relationship between NTT DATA and RWJ, the organization has grown its implementation of Optimum because of the operational efficiencies that Optimum provides.
