IntelliCentrics, Inc. Acquires Hospital Vendor Credentialing Solution Status Blue, LLC
Apr 15, 2011 (12:04 PM EDT)
DALLAS, April 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- IntelliCentrics, Inc., owner and operator of both Reptrax and VendorClear, announced today the acquisition of Status Blue, LLC, a leading vendor compliance solution. With the acquisition of Status Blue, LLC, IntelliCentrics will unite the majority of the industry's credentialing efforts onto one standardized platform. Status Blue, LLC brings to IntelliCentrics a history of outstanding customer care and grounded credentialing principles that are shared by both companies.
IntelliCentrics' latest acquisition, its second in two years, illustrates the company's continued commitment to standardizing healthcare credentialing and increasing compliance by providing uniform practices for its 2,500 installed healthcare facilities and more than 250,000 registered users. The company's dedication to provide healthcare facilities and vendors with the best possible service is part of the overall acquisition strategy to make credentialing more straightforward and predictable for everyone.
With guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and accrediting bodies, IntelliCentrics provides a reliable foundation on which facilities can implement vendor credentialing as part of their comprehensive compliance plans to keep their buildings, employees, patients and vendors safe and secure. This standardization also saves vendors time and money by reducing the number of credentialing services – each of which has their own standards – and minimizing fees.
IntelliCentrics' acquisition of VendorClear in 2010 combined two of the largest and most trusted healthcare credentialing services in the country. The company recently began the final phase of integration of VendorClear facilities and features into the Reptrax platform. As a result of this integration, Reptrax offers a standardized platform with an expanded hierarchy structure for healthcare facilities, as well as a corporate administrator function for vendors to help complete administrative tasks for their representatives.
"We are pleased and excited to welcome Status Blue to the IntelliCentrics family," said IntelliCentrics president Mike Sheehan. "By all indicators, the vendor community has been pleased with the results of our most recent acquisition of VendorClear. And I believe the acquisition of Status Blue will allow us to further our efforts to standardize and consolidate the vendor credentialing process for the benefit of all customers. Hospitals are on board, reps are excited and vendor companies are now asking to be a part of the conversation. This is an exciting time for our company."
"The market is clamoring for consolidation and standardization," said John Wills, founder and president of Status Blue. "With the VendorClear acquisition, we saw Reptrax moving closer to doing just that. Therefore, we decided to combine our resources with IntelliCentrics' established organization to continue on our commitments to simplify and expedite the credentialing process in order to move more healthcare organizations towards more accountability and regulation."
IntelliCentrics' long-term commitment to serving its customers is demonstrated by substantial and continued investment in system technology, staff and efficiencies for hospitals and vendors. This commitment ultimately results in the ability of vendors to comply with hospital standards and the ability of healthcare facilities to comply with CDC best practices.
