[BLOG] Letter From the President: Introducing Rise Family of Companies

Ryan McKindles, President

There comes a time in every company when it’s time to grow up, to expand and face new challenges. Just like raising children you look back and have vivid memories of all the firsts – all the fun – all the failures – and you smile. We’ve all been through it – the growing pains of a startup.The long nights, the tight budgets, and the sacrifices you give when you believe in doing the right thing. Remembering all the little things that happened in order to get to this moment in time. And just like with kids, you wonder where the time went.

For the past decade, I couldn’t be prouder of the people I work with. They are some of the hardest working and most dedicated professionals in all industries, never slowing down as we near our goals together! Just when you think there’s nothing left in the tank, they work just a little bit harder and leave even more on the field. Our partnership has been an inspiration for what’s possible when everyone puts their heart into something important.

We’re all in this together. As partners, we’ve had the amazing experience of growing Healthrise from idea to maturity–What started out as a passion for life and a yearning to make a difference in the human experience for others, has turned into a life’s calling. The work we do in revenue cycle management makes a real difference – not just in a hospital’s bottom line or stock price, but in the level of patient access and care that everyday folks like us will all need at some point in our lives.

Since Day One, we have always strived for excellence.  We are obsessed with efficiency because it’s the key to innovation and opportunity.  Efficiency drives growth, builds communities, empowers people to accomplish things they never thought possible.  Helping our partners achieve operational efficiency is our ultimate achievement and one that we can proudly stand behind having delivered successful outcomes for many large hospital systems.

We’re excited to share with you what we’ve been up to for the last ten years. It’s not just about making money or improving efficiency- it has always been more than that! We want people in healthcare who are feeling fulfilled, challenged by their work everyday and enjoying life along the way because they know how great things can get when everyone is working together as one team towards a common goal: To put smiles on faces through better revenue cycle management.

Healthrise has been on a steady growth trajectory for the past few years, but some people don’t realize just how much our solutions have evolved. In fact we’ve made acquisitions and launched stealth new companies that will forever change revenue cycle management.

With great pride we have evolved into a family of companies. And just like with real-life families, when you have another child, you’ve got to name it. So with that said…

I am happy to announce the launch of the Rise Family of Companies.

Rise is a family of companies deeply committed to improving the people, processes and technology critical to ensuring end-to-end revenue cycle success. 

Our portfolio companies: HealthRiseQodexGreenstone, and Agile were thoughtfully created to solve unique, yet vastly recurring problems in the industry.


We will help you find your perfect solution by providing a broad range of services that are both sustainable and best in class. From system integration, staff productivity software powered with AI, in house training, staffing and or transitional outsourcing for when things get busy at work- we have got it covered!

Simply put, here at Rise we help hospital systems find ways to optimize their revenue cycle operations so they can drive measurable improvements, produce higher-performing teams and generate more money for the bottom line.

I am proud of our commitment to drive patient and financial outcomes that improve the level of care and affordability. Our services have never been stronger. We will continue to innovate and improve our offerings as we drive market innovation. Stay tuned for more of these exciting announcements that are on their way.
