Conifer Health Solutions and VisiQuate Form Strategic Alliance to Harness Power of ‘Big Data'

15:00 EST Friday, November 08, 2013

FRISCO, Texas (Business Wire) -- Conifer Health Solutions has selected VisiQuate, Inc., to provide business intelligence technology to complement the company's proven revenue management solutions. Now, with data captured from across a hospital or health system's enterprise, Conifer Health will have insight into every facet of its clients' revenue cycle functions.

“With enhanced visibility into operations, Conifer Health can help clients rethink the entire revenue cycle – from patient scheduling to collections – to create more efficient operations,” said Allen Hobbs, Conifer Health's chief client officer. “In addition, predictive analytics capabilities allow us to identify patterns and trends to make real-time, data-driven revenue management decisions that drive productivity, and improve yield and cash flow for our clients.”

As pressure continues to build on providers to reduce the cost of care while improving patient outcomes, the collection of real-time data will also allow Conifer Health to provide its clients with deeper insight about their patients. “Access to information not only from a financial perspective, but from clinical and patient experience as well, will be evermore critical to Conifer Health clients. Their success around integrated care delivery, population health management, and patient engagement and outreach depends on actionable data,” added Hobbs.

As part of the new, long-term strategic relationship, Conifer Health has taken a minority equity position in VisiQuate.

VisiQuate Founder and CEO Brian Robertson said, “Many companies say they're committed to the highest standards of excellence. However, in our experience with Conifer Health, we have seen this is not just a casual phrase, but instead a real priority for their entire team. We're very proud to be working with people who share our values so completely.”
