In addition, the combination of Recondo’s robust cloud-based solution and Sutherland’s comprehensive suite of billing services represents a distinctive, best in class revenue management offering that Sutherland will be selling to the provider segment market,” said Sutherland Healthcare Solutions Chief Executive Officer Thomas Laur.
Sutherland was ranked as a high performer by leading analyst firm HfS Research in its September 2015 report, Blueprint for Healthcare Payer Operations. Recondo secured two notable industry analyst rankings in the last three months: The company’s EmpoweredPatientAccess™ suite was highlighted for achieving the greatest year-over-year score improvement in the “KLAS 2015 Midterm Performance Review: Software & Services Report”; and Recondo’s EligibilityPlus™ data service scored the top Black Book ranking in the Insurance and Payer Eligibility category (two other Recondo solutions made the Top 10 in other Black Book categories for hospital revenue cycle).
