Acquisition will bolster RCM offerings

eSolutions, a healthcare revenue cycle management technology company, announced that it has acquired Practice Insight, a Houston, Texas-based clearinghouse and RCM software vendor that provides integrated EDI solutions.

More than 68,000 providers rely on Practice Insight's technology to edit and track claims in real-time, verify patient eligibility, process patient statements, and provide patients with advance notice of procedure costs. Through this transaction, an eSolutions news release says, it bolsters its own clearinghouse solutions and has an opportunity to introduce new product offerings to its respective markets, two of which are home health and hospice.

"Practice Insight is known for improving the entire healthcare billing process by leveraging robust connections to payers and seamless integration with providers to reduce rejections, speed payments and increase total reimbursement," said CEO Gerry McCarthy. "With this acquisition, we add complementary claims processing, workflow management capabilities, and analytics that enhance our revenue cycle suite of solutions."

"eSolutions shares our passion for making healthcare smarter and more efficient through increased transparency and next-generation revenue cycle workflow solutions," said Houston Johnson, founder of Practice Insight. "eSolutions' unwavering commitment to delivering industry-leading products makes this a great match, and its dedication for providing industry expertise and exemplary client service undoubtedly will benefit our clients."
