Conifer Acquires MediHealth
MediHealth specializes in providing HIM business process and consulting solutions to hospitals and healthcare organizations. Its services range from outsourcing a hospital’s entire HIM department to interim/temporary staffing services for coding and all clinical revenue cycle staff. They also provide operational consulting services for electronic health records (EHR) and Meaningful Use preparedness, as well as RAC audit defense.
Conifer will now offer all of these HIM services as stand-alone solutions for hospitals and healthcare systems and as part of its comprehensive revenue cycle management solution.
Conifer will retain MediHealth president Paula Lawlor to lead its consolidated HIM organization. It will also add MediHealth’s 12 employees to its existing staff to continue providing services to client hospitals and healthcare systems.
Stephen Mooney, president of revenue cycle solutions at Conifer Health Solutions, said: “With this acquisition, we have significantly strengthened Conifer’s ability to assist hospitals and healthcare providers with healthcare reform including the upcoming ICD-10 implementation and execution.
“Conifer’s comprehensive revenue cycle management services will now include operational responsibility for all of the clinical and financial functions pertaining to the capture, management and collection of net patient revenue for hospitals and health systems. We also believe expanding our HIM and clinical revenue cycle offerings will make us more competitive in the marketplace and is an important part of our long-term growth strategy.”
