PH Tech and The Health Care Transformation

In 2012, when the State of Oregon committed to providing better health care and lowering health costs, PH Tech helped virtually every Coordinated Care Organization or CCO, make the transition to requirements established by the government. We love that we are able to help health plans and care providers transform health care.

Who we are

PH Tech strives to give Communities the power to come together and manage their health care resources in an open and connected way. We have been partnering with health care organizations for the past 2 decades, collaborating on custom solutions to transform health care together.

PH Tech and Health Care Transformation

We love that we are able to help health plans and care providers transform health care.

Today, PH Tech continues to provide the essential resources and systems needed to operate a government sponsored health plan. Our focus on Medicare and Medicaid allow us to do that in an efficient and affordable manner. We create an open and connected environment for patients, doctors, hospitals and health plans.

Communities use PH Tech's advice, technology and services to connect and integrate the optimal resources to achieve improved patient care, lower cost and healthier population.

Revenue Optimization

Details matter, especially when someone else sets the rates affecting top line revenue. You must ensure that data in your systems and the systems of government entities and large health plans accurately reflects membership and costs. Ensure the world you model in your data matches the real world.
