PLEXIS Healthcare Systems, Inc., a software development company which provides products that meet the core administrative needs and help enable business outcomes for healthcare payer organizations, is pleased to announce a partnership with Vargo Consultants, LLC, a leading health care technology consulting firm. PLEXIS previously partnered with Vargo from 2008 to 2010 to develop a market-entry strategy for its technology into the state Medicaid market. A formalized strategic alliance with Accenture LLP was the result of this work, and positioned PLEXIS as an industry leader through the introduction of a best-of-breed COTS (Commercial-off-the-shelf) core benefits administration platform option for state Medicaid programs.
“PLEXIS has focused on product development and refinement of our Quantum Choice product a good portion of the last decade and we are now turning our attention to greater market pursuits as we head into 2014”, said Sean Garrett, Chief Operating Officer of PLEXIS. “Enhancing our business development efforts to expand further into current markets while pursuing new markets, is a key next step for us, and partnering with an established, known-entity like Vargo Consultants just makes sense.” Keith Vargo, one of the founders of Vargo Consultants, LLC will serve as the Managing Director of Strategic Business Relationships for PLEXIS during the term of the partnership.
