New York, NY (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
N-Squared Growth Capital, LLC (“N-Squared”), a New York-based private investment firm focused exclusively on Healthcare and Technology/Business Services, is seeking to acquire and grow a diversified RCM platform that provides a single-source solution of outsourced RCM and EHR products and services centered on the ASC segment and other selected segments in the broader outpatient provider market.
A key aspect of N-Squared’s strategy is to explore opportunities that broaden the RCM platform’s technology capabilities, particularly as it relates to building capabilities that enable clinical / EHR-related solutions to be provided to the client base in addition to billing solutions.
“This initiative represents an important step in our desire to acquire and subsequently grow what we hope would ultimately be a leading provider of outsourced financial and clinical solutions focused on the ASC and broader outpatient provider segment in the U.S,” said Sudeep Das, Founder and Managing Partner of N-Squared. “As a firm, we have a core emphasis on healthcare IT broadly, and within that category, believe that RCM providers are uniquely positioned to experience attractive growth in the future. However, these businesses are increasingly being asked to do more by their clients, particularly as it relates to providing services that seamlessly integrate financial information with clinical information. In this regard, N-Squared’s partnership with NextServices is expected to be immediately accretive. We have known NextServices’s Co-Founder and CEO, Satish Malnaik, for a number of years, like the work they are doing, and believe that their EHR software capabilities could be attractive to a variety of RCM providers as these providers contemplate ways to provide broader outsourcing solutions to their clients.”
“This initiative is very much consistent with our goal of creating leading technology-enabled healthcare services franchises,” said Ted Bernstein, Managing Partner of N-Squared. “We are doing this by bringing together world-class management teams, with sophisticated financial and operating expertise, and deep capital resources in ways that enable us to meet this goal. We are highly active and hands-on investors, and look forward to working with our RCM partners in executing our strategy.”
NextServices, founded in 2004, provides cloud-based EHR software along with RCM services to several large and small specialty physician practices, ASCs, labs and wellness centers across the U.S. NextServices operates out of Ann Arbor, Michigan, which is where it was founded and headquartered, and Mumbai, India, which is where its 110-strong development and support team is based.
“At NextServices, we are constantly evaluating ways of adding highly differentiated value to our clients. Our certified enki EHR product, which is 100% mobile and cloud-based, was two years in the making and designed to serve as a complete EHR platform,” said Satish Malnaik, Co-Founder and CEO at NextServices. “We look forward to working closely with N-Squared to evaluate ways to partner with potential RCM providers that might be able to leverage our capabilities to better serve their clients.”
