Providence Combines 9 Health IT Companies to Form Tegria

Tegria, a new company designed to provide next generation technologies and services to the health care sector, launched today with support from Providence, one of the nation’s largest health systems. Tegria combines select Providence investments and acquisitions into a comprehensive portfolio of solutions to accelerate technological, clinical and operational advances in health care.

In recent years, Providence has developed or acquired technology platforms, processes, best practices and expertise that have improved the way the health system delivers patient care and operates administrative services.

“By making these services and solutions available to other health care organizations, we can support their strategies for improving the health of their local communities. Together, we can accelerate transformation across scale, driving quality, affordability and a better experience for health care organizations, providers and patients,” said Rod Hochman, M.D., Providence president and CEO.

“For example, we have been provisioning IT services to rural hospitals and clinics for years through Community Technologies. As a Tegria company, it will be possible for Community Technologies to share their expertise more broadly. This endeavor is aligned with our Mission and vital to our ability to extend our healing ministry to more people in need,” Dr. Hochman said.

Based in Seattle with offices and teams throughout the United States and Canada, Tegria combines nine operating companies into a comprehensive suite of offerings for organizations across the health care sector. Together, Tegria is comprised of more than 2,500 strategists, technologists, service providers and scientists who currently serve more than 350 organizations across North America. To begin, Tegria will focus on three key initiatives—healthcare consulting and technology services, revenue cycle management solutions and software technology and platforms.

“Health care leaders are looking for solutions to transform the delivery of care,” said Anders Brown, managing director, Tegria. “Tegria’s mission is to support them with offerings that can meet the breadth and depth of the challenges ahead. Our companies are working together to bring their decades of experience in the industry, their deep expertise in the most relevant technologies and their commitment to service to help our customers achieve their goals.”

  • This integrated healthcare innovative resources harkens back to the seven women in LePuy, France, soon to be Sisters of St. Joseph, who after assessing the needs of the dear neighbor partnered with others to provide complete loving care. Similary, when Mother Joseph was beginning health ministry in the Pacific northwest she partnered with mining companies to insure complete health care for them. This beginning of HMOs allowed growth in healing and other ministries. These partnerships are given new visibility and a prophetic voice through Tegria from stand alones to collaboration and connection. Thank you for leading with our heritage, Mission, Values, Vision and Promise
