Leading provider of cloud-based solutions for optimizing healthcare economics.
GTCR, a leading private equity firm, today announced that it has acquired XIFIN, Inc. (“XIFIN” or “the Company”). XIFIN, headquartered in San Diego, California, is a leading provider of cloud-based software and services to diagnostic service providers. XIFIN’s technology platform enables end-to-end connectivity from patient to payor, linking together the many stakeholders in healthcare delivery and optimizing for the best business and patient outcomes.
Since its founding, XIFIN’s technology solutions have supported some of the nation’s largest and most complex diagnostics providers. The Company’s customers occupy a diverse set of industry segments, including molecular diagnostics, pain management/toxicology, anatomic pathology, radiology, hospital outreach, medical device and clinical laboratories. Built on a secure, web services-based technology platform, XIFIN’s core product is a cloud-based workflow application designed to help clients optimize billing and collection practices, automate billing workflow and reduce regulatory compliance risk. XIFIN’s health economics optimization platform also includes additional cloud-based applications, including a laboratory information system, physician and patient portals, enterprise-class business intelligence and a physician-collaboration network. By bringing together financial and clinical information and combining with advanced business intelligence, XIFIN aims to provide diagnostic service providers the ability to lower healthcare costs while improving patient outcomes.
As part of the transaction, GTCR will partner with founder and CEO Lâle White and the management team at XIFIN as they continue to grow and develop the Company’s services and product offering. An accomplished industry veteran, Ms. White has built XIFIN into a market-leading solution for complex laboratory business operations.
