Healthaxis announced today that it has been selected by Integrated Medical Solutions (IMS) to provide a fully integrated benefits administration software and services solution.  IMS develops healthcare networks to provide comprehensive medical services for patients housed in correctional facilities.  IMS also provides care coordination for such patients when they have medical needs requiring services not provided by the correctional facility itself.  Healthaxis will provide IMS with a full range of services, including front-end claims services, administration and claims software systems capability, re-pricing, and Web capabilities.

John Carradine, CEO of Healthaxis said “We are excited to be working with IMS to support their operational and administrative needs.  Their business continues to grow because their reputation for delivering high quality, secure services and outstanding cost control to their market is outstanding.  IMS’s operation is unique, and their delivery model is outstanding.”

IMS’s CEO, Jerry Heftler commented, “The partnership with Healthaxis will allow us to grow our business in an efficient and scalable way.  We looked at multiple Healthcare IT and services companies during our selection process.  Healthaxis’ strength of offerings and their team’s commitment to customer service led us to choose them as our long-term partner.  We are confident that Healthaxis’ benefits platforms meet our unique processing needs.  The fact that they are a fully integrated solution for payer administration, and meet all of our needs for services and software as a single source supplier, went a long way in our consideration.”
