Verscend Company Overview

What We Do

As the healthcare industry evolves, our clients face increasingly complex clinical and financial risk. We serve the needs of a specific group of organizations: the health plans that are paying for care; the providers who deliver care; and the employers who are responsible for the needs of their employees. We’re transforming our clients’ experience within the healthcare industry by helping them mitigate risk, reduce cost, improve patient outcomes, and ensure compliant revenue. Our approach combines data services, analytics, and advanced technologies to inform smarter business decisions.

What We Think About

Evolving market trends. New technologies. Public policy. Healthcare reform. Customer service. Building a solid business. It's the kind of place where people actually stay up at night solving customer challenges. Our thought leaders publish on a range of topics, from the future of healthcare and prospective risk analysis to improving patient care through analysis of clinical data. We constantly challenge ourselves to answer healthcare’s biggest questions.

Why We Are Here

Each day, Verscend is working to fundamentally improve the business of healthcare in the United States—a business that grows increasingly complex as health reform takes effect. We help organizations identify, manage, and mitigate healthcare risk to improve quality, reduce cost, and maximize profitability. In a world of questions about how to improve the healthcare system, Verscend is at the forefront of developing answers.

Our success is the product of our talented staff. We offer employees great growth opportunities, a team environment, and a chance to work at one of the fastest growing healthcare information companies. From clinical and medical experts to information technologists, developers, data scientists, account managers, retrieval agents, and more, we’re continually looking for top talent to fill the many positions in offices around the country.
