PayrHealth has acquired Supero Healthcare Solutions to add more extensive credentialing services to its existing suite of payor relationship management solutions.

With this acquisition, PayrHealth can now offer a proven provider enrollment and credentialing solution that’s been in use for more than 10 years, replacing the more limited credentialing solutions the company previously offered, according to a Thursday (Sept. 1) press release.

“Supero has developed excellent credentialing solutions, serving providers across the healthcare continuum and nation,” PayrHealth CEO Armando Cardoso said in the release. “Welcoming this talented credentialing team further strengthens our ability to integrate critical provider data and optimize reimbursement for healthcare providers.”

These new capabilities join PayrHealth’s existing integrated solutions that healthcare organizations use to manage payor relationships, including analytics, contracting, reimbursement negotiation, network development and revenue cycle management, according to the release.

Supero Founder and CEO Brian Agnew, who will serve in an advisory capacity during the acquisition integration, said in the release: “I can’t think of a better home for our employees and clients during this next chapter. PayrHealth is building a unique offering in the industry that will drive value.”

Healthcare, insurance and financial services — three of the largest verticals in the United States, tied to trillions of dollars of transaction flows — have friction surrounding payments and communication between providers, between firms and with end users, Corcentric CEO Matt Clark told PYMNTS in a March interview.

Moving those industries into the digital age requires a mixture of technology, automating manual processes and examining back-office functions, Clark said.

Clark noted that transparency can resolve bottlenecks before those bottlenecks become serious problems, adding that clarity and transparency can improve if some of the most fundamental back-office functions undergo some modernization too.
