About Versalus Health

How We Got Our Start

Versalus Health was founded in 2016 to address the “blind spot” of the Clinical Revenue Cycle: the complex intersection of clinical decisions, regulations/contracts, and billing/finance. By leveraging advanced healthcare analytics and unparalleled knowledge, we help hospitals and health systems to optimize their UM and CDI roles. Our programmatic approach ensures appropriate revenue, enhanced compliance, increased efficiency, and improved results across all payer types.

We are your partner, your advocate, and an extension of your team. Let us help to ensure you realize the revenue you are entitled to for the important care you provide.
