McKesson announced that RelayHealth, its connectivity services business, has acquired HTP Inc., a leading provider of revenue cycle management technology. HTP, a privately held company in Columbus, Ohio, provides connectivity solutions that address the growing burden of uncompensated healthcare, estimated to be $31.2 billion in 2006. HTP provides timely reimbursement for patient services ranging from verification of insurance eligibility to maintaining payment plans that aid in the collection of self-pay balances.
“The healthcare revenue cycle market model is shifting from collecting payments after the visit to a more retail-oriented approach, beginning before the patient actually arrives to receive care,” says Pamela Pure, president of McKesson Technology Solutions.
