••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:58M.Germany
Medassets, Inc. was incorporated in 1999. The Company provides technology-enabled products and services which together help mitigate the increasing financial pressures faced by hospitals and health systems. These include the increasing complexity of healthcare reimbursement, rising levels of bad debt and uncompensated care and significant increases in supply utilization and operating costs. Its solutions are designed to improve operating margin and cash flow for hospitals and health systems. The sustainable financial improvements provided by its solutions occur in a matter of months and can be quantified and confirmed by its customers. Its solutions integrate with its customers' existing operations and enterprise software systems and require minimal upfront costs or capital expenditures. The sustainable financial improvements provided by its solutions occur in a matter of months and can be quantified and confirmed by its customers. The Company delivers its solutions through two business segments, Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) and Spend Management (SM). Its RCM segment provides a comprehensive suite of products and services spanning the hospital revenue cycle workflow — from patient access and financial responsibility, charge capture and integrity, pricing analysis, claims processing and denials management, pay or contract management, revenue recovery and accounts receivable services. Its workflow solutions, together with its data management, decision support, performance analytics, and compliance and audit tools, increase revenue capture and cash collections, reduce accounts receivable balances and increase regulatory compliance. Its SM segment provides a comprehensive suite of technology-enabled services that help its customers manage their non-labor expense categories. Its solutions lower supply and medical device costs and utilization by managing the procurement process through its group purchasing organization's portfolio of contracts, consulting services and business analytics and intelligence tools. Its Spend Management segment helps its customers manage their non-labor expense categories through a combination of group purchasing, performance improvement consulting, including implantable physician preference items, or PPI, cost and utilization management and service line consulting, and business intelligence tools. The market for its products and services is fragmented, intensely competitive. The Company is highly regulated and is subject to changing political, legislative, regulatory and other influences.
