Based in Houston, Global Healthcare Alliance (Global) provides medical billing services to healthcare providers and Web-based claims processing software for IPAs and health plans. We are the only claims processing and medical billing service provider to support both payors and providers for more than 10 years.
Global has a long-term affiliation with Cardiovascular Care Providers, Inc. (CVCP), the most successful single specialty independent practice association (IPA) in the country. Founded in 1984, CVCP is famous for pioneering the “packaged pricing” concept with major healthcare payors, a concept that helped the organization gain knowledge and expertise as both a payor and a provider.
In the mid-1990’s, CVCP’s officers and physicians wanted to take advantage of this payor-provider knowledge and develop technology that would revolutionize medical billing and claims processing. These individuals, including world-renowned heart surgeon, Denton A. Cooley, M.D., founded Global Healthcare Alliance in 1997.
We developed the award-winning globalcentaraSM technology—the only Web-based claims processing system and practice
management system with payor-provider intelligenceTM. This built-in, rules-based technology automatically catches errors to expedite medical claims and billing and claims processing. In 2005, the Emerging Technology and Healthcare Innovations Congress awarded Global with two TETHIE awards for “Technology of the Year” and “Technology for the Improvement of Claims Processing.”
Under President and CEO John Adams, Global continues to explore new technology advancements, and routinely updates its product offerings to meet the changing needs of the industry for our clients.
