Aspirion Health Resources Announces Combination with ARx

By The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ga. & FRANKLIN, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 6, 2022--

Aspirion (the “Company”), a leader in technology-enabled healthcare revenue cycle management, announced today that it has combined with ARx, a trusted partner to hospital systems to help collect their more challenging reimbursements. As part of the announcement, the ARx team will continue to be led by CEO Bill Chace. The combination closed on March 22, 2022. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The addition of ARx will further reinforce Aspirion’s strong market position in aged accounts receivable collections and provide the Company’s hospital system clients with expanded capabilities to support a broader array of complex revenue cycle solutions. The companies’ shared vision and cultural synergy that focus on customer centricity, innovation, and delivering superior results will facilitate optimal revenue recovery performance and financial success for their healthcare provider partners.

“Today’s announcement illustrates Aspirion’s commitment to broadening our support of US hospital systems’ most difficult reimbursements and our execution against our goal of continually expanding our capabilities and reach in this vertical,” said Jason Erdell, CEO of Aspirion. “What most impressed us with ARx was how their clients spoke of the support they received. It was clear that we share very similar values, and they consistently deliver a premium level of service which is so core to all we do. ARx’s obsession with providing an experience that clients couldn’t find elsewhere and complementary offerings makes this deal align with our strategy.”

“The combination of ARx and Aspirion brings new, strategic capabilities to the company that are vital to the ever-evolving dynamics of revenue cycle management,” said Geoff White, founder of ARx. “We look forward to leveraging the Aspirion team’s expertise and bringing our own knowledge in revenue cycle management to advance the organization in a purposeful, industry-changing way for our employees, clients, and the communities they serve.”

“Challenges in the labor market and intense scrutiny on reimbursements are producing unprecedented market demand to support US healthcare systems in many areas, notably in areas farther from the core of care delivery,” said Kevin Barrett, Chairman of the Board of Aspirion. “The combination of Aspirion and ARx capitalizes on this compelling opportunity to offer even greater revenue cycle proficiencies to the market.”

This marks Aspirion’s fifth transaction in the last four years and further expands the services the Company provides to its clients. The Company’s mergers and acquisitions and strategic partnership plan are complemented by a history of new client wins and service expansion within existing clients. This is evidenced by the Company receiving this year’s Best in KLAS award for revenue integrity vendors.
