TriZetto Announces Acquisition of Kocsis Consulting Group

The TriZetto Group (News - Alert) has recently signed a definitive agreement to acquire to Kocsis Consulting Group, a Michigan-based firm that provides software training, compliance and change management tools and solutions for healthcare payer organizations.

This acquisition is part of TriZetto’s continuing commitment to provide world-class services that help healthcare organizations meet business challenges today and for years to come, according to officials.

KCG’s training solutions library for industry applications includes nearly 100 end-user courses for TriZetto’s FacetsTM and QNXTTM platforms, enterprise core administration systems used by health plans to serve more than a third of all Americans. It also includes instructional design and training facilitation.

Thanks to the partnership, KCG will enhance and expand TriZetto’s end-user training and business process engineering services. The firm’s BPE, business readiness, and audit and compliance readiness services help customers move from software installation to the most productive, enterprise-wide use of such investments.

“We believe that joining TriZetto will create an unmatched consulting capacity to serve TriZetto’s client base of more than 350 payers and over 21,000 physician practices, translating technical tools into customized end-user training experiences that help enable businesses to fully adopt new technologies,” said Chris Kocsis, president of KCG. “As part of TriZetto, not only can we help more healthcare organizations improve their administrative efficiency, but we can also help payers and providers collaborate more effectively to deliver greater value for every healthcare dollar spent.”

Consulting services of TriZetto help healthcare organizations refine their business strategy, anticipate and leverage reform requirements and optimize information systems and processes to help achieve long-term competitive advantages.
