Since 2000, ABILITY Network has been leading the way with our ground-breaking web-based healthcare technology. More than one hundred thousand providers across the continuum of care — ambulatory, acute, and post-acute — depend upon ABILITY services to simplify the complexities of administrative and clinical processes.
Improving healthcare by simplifying complex processes
We began in 2000 (as a small Minneapolis company called “VisionShare”) with an innovative idea: using the Internet to securely connect healthcare providers to Medicare. Any provider that needs to verify the eligibility of Medicare patients and then get paid for treating them requires this connectivity. Before ABILITY, it was slow going for most healthcare billing staff, who spent a lot of time using an antiquated system to verify eligibility and check on the status of claims.
What our breakthrough software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) gave providers was a faster, more secure, reliable, user-friendly way to connect to Medicare, using web-based applications and interfaces. Like many new uses of the Internet, this idea revolutionized its industry. We then added connections to other insurance payers in addition to Medicare. And today, our innovative services go far beyond connectivity.
The company has grown over the years, in our size and in our vision. With investments from Lemhi Ventures and then Bain Capital Ventures, we became ABILITY® Network Inc (“ABILITY”) in February 2011, and in April 2013 acquired IVANS, another web-based Medicare service vendor. In April 2014 ABILITY received a $550 million strategic investment led by Summit Partners. In November 2014, ABILITY acquired MD On-Line, Inc., a trusted provider of connectivity, workflow, and analytic services to ambulatory providers, payers, and other healthcare customers. ABILITY remains headquartered in Minneapolis, with anchor locations in Boston, Parsippany and Tampa, and satellite offices around the country.
Helping providers reduce costs, increase revenues, and focus on patients
Today ABILITY Network develops and provides a broad suite of web-based services that simplify the complex processes that challenge most healthcare providers. Whether it’s connections to insurance payers, revenue cycle management services, or clinical support systems, thousands of providers across the United States trust ABILITY technology to improve the way they operate. Our goal is to help providers focus on what they do best: deliver quality care.
