As value-based care and value-based reimbursement gain momentum within the healthcare industry, healthcare delivery organizations must adapt quickly to the changing landscape. They are expected to provide better information and greater access to quality and superior care and outcomes for its members, all at a lower cost. The obstacles many companies face when trying to meet this demand stem from coordination challenges, outdated legacy technology, and inefficient information management.
HealthAxis Group is an innovative partner for those who want to revolutionize healthcare services and become leaders in the industry. Headquartered in Tampa, HealthAxis Group has charted an appropriately unique and intriguing course to blur the lines between a 50+-year-old company and a cutting-edge startup. The oldest company that now makes up HealthAxis Group was founded in 1965 and in the late 1970s became the industry’s first SAAS-basedhosted enterprise application administration system. Far more recently, the company launched the most advanced application suite for healthcare administration, care management, and data and analytics. HealthAxis Group breaks the mold by being simultaneously the most experienced and the most modern technology company in its space.
The comprehensive platform includes enterprise software, a multitude of portals for all types of healthcare stakeholders, a robust private cloud, and services around analytics, data management, and associated BPO services. These enable healthcare organizations to increase administrative efficiency, lower costs, and improve the quality and delivery of patient care. Plus, it is highly customizable–tailoring logic, workflow, and interfaces to meet each client’s unique strategy. As more models for healthcare delivery are tested at the federal, state, and employer levels, HealthAxis Group’s platform can be a single solution through it all. The core system can efficiently and effectively manage appeals and grievances, credentialing, medical management, care coordination, provider directories and more.
HealthAxis Group solutions are built upon the proven success of its collective leadership and the experience of over 230 employees who aim to advance modern healthcare software and bring innovative solutions to the industry. The team is well equipped to deliver the next generation of healthcare software and resolve key business challenges for the clients they serve: Managed care organizations, commercial and private health plans, third-party administrators, risk-bearing provider organizations and medical providers.

Our success is dependent on their success and sustainability within the rapidly changing healthcare system. This means not just delivering software and writing code; but using our creativity, curiosity, and capabilities to collaboratively provide alternatives to crippling legacy technologies and outdated ideologies.”
