Plantation, FL, Nov. 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Health Revenue Assurance Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: HRAA), a provider of revenue integrity solutions for healthcare organizations, announced its financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012.
Third Quarter 2012 Financial Highlights:
- Total quarterly revenue of $1,985,516, increased 369% as compared to $423,325 for the prior year's third quarter;
- Adjusted EBITDA of $161,812 compared to adjusted EBITDA of $98,993 in same period in 2011;
- Net loss of $230,149 or $0.01 per basic and diluted share that included a one-time $297,000 non-cash expense related to the amortization of a $300,000 beneficial conversion feature which was expensed during the three months ended September 30, 2012.
Andrea Clark, HRAA's Chairman, CEO and Founder stated, "This was a record quarter for HRAA. Our strong revenue growth was driven by new customer wins in our healthcare coding business including the addition of 7 new hospitals in one of the nation's leading hospital groups. We are currently providing outsourced coding services to more than 20 hospitals and expect to see continued strong momentum in this business as hospital groups increasingly turn to outsourced providers to address their coding needs."
Clark concluded, "During the quarter we launched our flagship ICD-10 software product, ICD Visualizerä. This product provides hospitals with a powerful application that uncovers the financial and coding impact of the mandated transition from its current coding standard, ICD-9, to the new, more comprehensive ICD-10 standard in October 2014. Having provided auditing, education and consulting services and more recently, outsourced coding services to over 900 hospitals over the years, HRAA was in a unique position to develop and commercialize a business intelligence software solution that improves the healthcare delivery experience for doctors, nurses and patients. We will continue to invest in and develop IP and new technology products that leverage our expertise in healthcare consulting and revenue integrity."
