The article does not say this is for healthcare companies only, I put my spin on that portion of this since we are getting more and more hedge funds and private equity firms investing in healthcare. I would hope the SEC would be provided a courtesy copy of the software too so they can audit. There’s actually a non profit organization set up to where they can all sit around and discuss how to profit, kind of an oxymoron if you will being a non profit. Maybe the hedge fund guys have one too?
How Big Are Private Equity Investments in Healthcare – Large Enough to Create a “Non-Profit” Trade Association To Talk About How to “Profit”
We all know how HIMSS had adjusted some of their focus to the new medical banking acquisition too so perhaps is this a future offering for resale there? I’m just speaking out loud and pondering questions here since this is all materially related.
At any rate this comes back around to business intelligence once more and where would be be without it today and without an over anxious vendor banging on your door to sell you or your organization <grin>. Just like in healthcare with firms hanging out big carrots for hospital re-admissions and wanting to project, it appears this software might be able to give some advance warning of “insider trading” happening…hmmmm…anybody would like that except for those exchanging the information of course. Here’s a service below they provide that some judges (and others) might like to see and might help keep some out investment troubles. This way those invested know how the company to where they might own stock could grow into new areas which could represent some conflicts of interest.
This would also be especially helpful to the general accounting office too as recently they have been questioning the care given in those owned by private equity firms. This way they could look over all the accounting information easy enough and analytically see the over all picture, thus saving time as far as determining where to focus outside of the normal patient care which is always in the picture as a number one priority.
General Accounting Office Questions Nursing Homes Owned By Private Equity Firms–Lack of Data To Evaluate Care and Safety
Below are some additional screenshots with the article about some of the other services they offer, kind of like audit tables on steroids, and I would guess that a full audit table of the audit tables is included as well.<grin>. Getting back around to the title if compliance is clear from the investor end, then that paves the way for medical records and health IT certification too as it will all mesh at some point with analytics and business intelligence all the way around. This is certainly something that can help give the SEC some teeth too as far as activity and where to focus their efforts on fraud, inside trading or what ever area of regulation where they may need to inquire.
