Cognizant has announced that it has completed its acquisition of TMG Health, a leading national provider of business process services to the Medicare Advantage, Medicare Part D and Managed Medicaid markets in the United States, supporting 32 health plans and more than 4.4 million members in all 50 states.
The combined capabilities of TMG Health and Cognizant’s TriZetto healthcare administration software platforms establish Cognizant as the top provider of enhanced business process platforms, digital solutions and services for government and public managed healthcare programs in the U.S., and extends Cognizant’s leadership as a fully integrated healthcare technology and operations provider.
TMG Health’s primary facility near Scranton, Pennsylvania will serve as Cognizant’s National Center of Excellence for Medicare/Medicaid services, providing clients with services ranging from member enrollment to care management, using a predictable, cost-effective business process as-a-service (BPaaS) model. Cognizant’s BPaaS solutions combine a cloud-based infrastructure, collaboration and intelligent automation platforms, and deep subject matter expertise to perform knowledge work and deliver pre-configured, best-in-class services to health plans. A flexible BPaaS operating infrastructure enables healthcare organizations to reduce administrative costs while improving data quality and patient and provider experiences.
“With the addition of TMG Health, Cognizant is further enhancing the way healthcare organizations, plan providers and members can benefit from new digital business models,” said Kaushik Bhaumik, Executive Vice President and global head of healthcare at Cognizant. “Many of our payer clients are expanding their government-regulated business lines and are increasingly embracing flexible BPaaS models to control costs and improve experiences as they address these growing, competitive and changing markets. We welcome TMG Health’s dedicated, experienced team who serve large and small health plans and pharmacy benefit managers across the country. TMG Health’s capabilities expand the breadth of Cognizant’s healthcare offerings and will enable a wider range of regional and national healthcare organizations to harness the benefits of scale that our BPaaS solutions provide.”
