Housatonic has sold ParaRev to CorroHealth, a portfolio company of The Carlyle Group


ParaRev, a leader in healthcare accounts receivable recovery and resolution management, works as a virtual extension in hospitals’ central billing offices to help resolve and collect more insurance accounts receivables faster, and improve operating margins through a seamless and collaborative partnership. ParaRev offers healthcare revenue cycle management (RCM) services, from front-end charge master analysis and contract management to end-of-cycle, zero-balance underpayment and denial recovery. The company’s comprehensive services also include a pricing transparency solution, which can help hospitals improve revenue capture while remaining competitive in the market.

The Deal

Backed by Housatonic Partners, a San Francisco and Boston-based private equity firm, ParaRev was acquired by CorroHealth, backed by The Carlyle Group, to expand targeted RCM service offerings to the market. The combination of the two companies is highly synergistic in terms of service offerings, customer base and overall strategic vision.

Jerry Connelly, Chief Executive Officer of ParaRev, commented, “We see major opportunities for synergy and convergence in joining CorroHealth, given there is no overlap between our two companies’ services. I’m pleased our existing clients will now be able to benefit from the combined strengths of the two companies.” Pat Leonard, Chief Executive Officer of CorroHealth, added, “The ParaRev team has excelled in taking on and delivering in several niche areas in the RCM space. These areas are typically overlooked by the various vendors in the space. Focusing on these often-ignored opportunities including zero-balance underpayments and denial recovery will be a valued offering for the clients we serve.”

Our Perspective

Mike Siano, Managing Director in Lincoln’s Healthcare Group, commented, “As the healthcare industry navigates a challenging market environment, tech-enabled solutions that drive improvements in the revenue cycle and healthcare payments are of increasing importance. This transaction represents a highly complimentary and compelling combination. It was a pleasure working with the Housatonic and ParaRev teams, and we look forward to seeing the continued growth and success of the business in the future.”
