Chicago, Illinois – January 16, 2024; City Capital Advisors, a Chicago-based middle market investment bank, is pleased to announce that it acted as the exclusive financial advisor to DoctorsManagement in the sale of its Compliance Risk Analyzer (CRA) software division to VMG Health.
About the Transaction
Compliance Risk Analyzer (CRA) is a suite of software-based auditing and predictive analytics tools developed by industry experts Frank Cohen and Scott Buchanan. These tools help healthcare organizations enhance coding compliance and mitigate the risk of potential recoupments and penalties.
“We are excited to have Frank, Scott, and the CRA team join VMG Health,” said Greg Koonsman,
Founder and CEO of VMG Health. “Addressing recoupments is both costly and time-consuming. CRA will further help our clients proactively identify and address areas of risk. The combination of the CRA technology with our existing expertise in billing and coding audits, training, and compliance program development will ensure VMG Health can meet the ever-changing needs of our clients.”
The software supports risk-based auditing by analyzing billing and coding patterns in healthcare organizations. CRA offers clients a comprehensive solution for assessing risk in both outpatient and inpatient billing to establish best-in-class compliance programs tailored to their needs.
“DoctorsManagement supported the initial build of the CRA platform, and that partnership was both positive and transformative,” said CRA Founder Frank Cohen. “VMG Health is the right next partner for us as we seek to expand into more health systems and accelerate our product development. This combination will empower us to deliver even greater value to our clients.”
DoctorsManagement is a full-service consulting firm that helps physicians and healthcare professionals increase profits and productivity, mitigate compliance risk, and reduce stress for providers and staff.
