The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) has acquired healthcare revenue cycle education and training company HCPro and its associated brands from Simplify Compliance.
Chicago-based AHIMA is a global nonprofit association of health information professionals with more than 67,000 members.
HCPro provides education solutions designed to help healthcare organizations deliver consistent training, achieve compliance, and maximize efficiencies across the revenue cycle. The HCPro family of brands includes DecisionHealth, Association for Clinical Documentation Integrity Specialists (ACDIS), National Association for Healthcare Revenue Integrity (NAHRI), and the Association of Home Care Coding & Compliance (AHCC).
AHIMA said it would operate HCPro as a for-profit, wholly owned subsidiary.
“The AHIMA board has been strategically seeking ways to broaden our impact. This acquisition truly complements our vision as both AHIMA and HCPro are focused on improving healthcare through knowledge,” said AHIMA President/Chair of the Board Jennifer Mueller, M.B.A., in a statement. “Adding HCPro to the AHIMA family deepens our expertise, gives us greater agility, and enables us to bring new solutions and services to the healthcare market more quickly.”
“We are thrilled to join the AHIMA family. Our common passion to equip healthcare professionals with information they need to succeed makes us a great fit and, with little overlap in customers, we can truly expand what we offer to our current clients,” said Dave Cella, president of HCPro, in a statement. “The healthcare industry is constantly changing, and our complementary areas of expertise will benefit both HCPro clients and AHIMA members.”
Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
