Healthcare giant Providence announced the creation of a new services company called Tegria that combines nine of its existing investments and acquisitions into one offering.
Seattle-based Tegria will consist of more than 2,500 employees who already serve more than 350 organizations across North America. The Accenture-like organization will initially focus on healthcare consulting and technology services; revenue cycle management solutions; and software technology and platforms.
Former Microsoft leader Anders Brown is heading up Tegria as its managing director. “Our companies are working together to bring their decades of experience in the industry, their deep expertise in the most relevant technologies and their commitment to service to help our customers achieve their goals,” he said in a statement.
Tegria will operate as a separately-incorporated, for-profit company.
Providence is the third-largest nonprofit healthcare system in the U.S., serving patients across Alaska, California, Montana, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, and Washington. It operates a Digital Innovation Group that spins out startups and runs a $300 million venture capital fund that invests in early-to-mid-stage healthcare companies.
