ClarisHealth on Helping Plans Tackle their Entire Payment Integrity Continuum

October 19, 2020


While working as a graduate student intern for a clinical documentation company, Jeff discovered his passion for the healthcare industry. He stayed there for 10 years and benefited from strong mentoring and development opportunities before seeing the company through its exit. Fast-forward 6 years- after another successful exit as a senior manager at a different business- Jeff was introduced to the concept of payment integrity and started ClarisHealth to help solve challenges in this area. Having grown from 3 to over 140 employees, Jeff sees ClarisHealth’s focus as helping plans tackle their entire payment integrity continuum (post-pay to pre-pay) with a longer-term vision of increasing payer-to-provider transparency. ClarisHealth’s Pareo platform is a multi-module SaS solution that helps health plans and payers grow recoveries from 1% to 7% or more. Hear host Steve Krupa chat with Jeff on his decision to start the business and how it has benefited both payers and providers.
