FLORHAM PARK, N.J., Oct. 31, 2018 – Conduent Incorporated (NYSE: CNDT) announced it has reached a definitive agreement to acquire Health Solutions Plus (HSP), a software provider of healthcare payer administration solutions. HSP was ranked as the No. 1 vendor for payer claims and administration platforms in the 2018 Best in KLAS: Software and Services report. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Aligned with Conduent’s strategy to make acquisitions that will enhance its core portfolio and position the company as a technology-led, digital interactions company, the HSP transaction, upon closing, will allow Conduent to better serve current and prospective commercial and government payer clients with core administration processing technology.
“We are one of the few companies in the healthcare services industry with the capacity to connect the entire healthcare ecosystem with deep expertise and relationships in each major market segment from payer and provider to pharmaceutical and government,” said Pratap Sarker, Group Chief Executive, Conduent, Financial Services and Healthcare. “The purchase of HSP is highly strategic for us and will help drive growth.”
HSP offers a modern Core Administration Processing System (CAPS) solution, which is a key connector of administrative functions for healthcare funding entities, including commercial payers, Managed Care Organizations, State Medicaid agencies and Medicare Advantage payers. The acquisition will allow Conduent to take advantage of the growing Medicaid Managed Care market and allow the company to expand its portfolio of services for its large commercial healthcare clients.
Additionally, HSP has a proven track record of providing comprehensive payer solutions that offer the flexibility and automation needed to support extended health products like dental, vision and specialty health benefits products. Besides providing end-to-end administration processing – from enrollment to billing to final reporting – the HSP Payer Suite can support multiple lines of business, including commercial, Medicaid, Medi-Cal and Medicare Advantage.
Founded in 1996, HSP is a privately held company based in Melville, N.Y., and supports more than 20 million people insured by healthcare organizations across medical, dental, vision and extended health products.
HSP employees will transfer to Conduent, including HSP co-founders John Buser and Dr. James Basile. HSP will be a part of Conduent’s Financial Services and Healthcare sector led by Group Chief Executive Pratap Sarker.
The acquisition of HSP is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2018, subject to any regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions.
