Health Systems International Rebrands Company as Equian Amid Record Growth


GREENWICH, CT and INDIANAPOLIS, IN — Health Systems International, a Great Point Partners I, L.P. (“GPP I”) portfolio company, announced it is changing its name to Equian. The new name unifies the meaning behind the payment integrity solutions the company offers.

Key elements that were integrated as the foundation of the new name include: Equity (fair and accurate payments), Quality (best outcomes and pay for performance model), Insight (research, data and development in the changing health care environment), and Analytics (actionable data for informed business decisions).

“In 2004, Health Systems International began delivering medical cost management solutions to payors throughout the health care and workers’ compensation markets,” said Scott Mingee, CEO. “With all the changes and complexities in the health care market, we saw a lot of opportunity to increase the value we provide to customers by accelerating our investment and focus on the payment integrity market. Our core platform in pre-payment, post-payment, and data analytics provides a unique solution to our markets. With a 100% focus on driving the best financial outcomes for our clients in all areas of the reimbursement cycle, we decided to re-align our name to match our mission.”

“Since our growth recapitalization in 2007, Equian has grown revenue approximately seven-fold over six years,” added Jeffrey R. Jay, MD, Managing Director of Great Point Partners. “Equian has the highest quality products and best customer service in the world, which is why they are experiencing such phenomenal growth. We are pleased to be their partner.”
