Aetna Creates a Branding Name for the Health IT Companies They Have Purchased, Healthagen
Posted Feb 26 2013 4:16pm
It’s a mouthful, Healthagen. The company has been buying up IT companies for a while, basically following what United has done for a long time and they are nowhere near the huge daisy chain they have. As a matter of fact the company is finally paying up on the 15 year short pay of hospitals and doctors where they licensed the algorithms that United Healthcare (Ingenix) designed and used. So we have Best Buy hawking software for Aetna, Costco selling their insurance and all kinds of other stuff going on. BD
