VCS Changing Name to symplr

Written by Kalli Sutton | Nov 6, 2014 4:09:00 PM

This summer, we announced the merger of VCS, Medkinetics and Payor Enrollment Services.

In the combining the three companies we created a leading provider of compliance and credentialing software and services, covering all constituents of the healthcare community: providers, nurses, staff, vendors, contractors and payors. Our combined company has a single mission, to make healthcare compliance and credentialing simpler for everyone involved.

New Mission, New Name

Since our mission is to make things simpler for everyone, we thought it made sense to change our name to reflect our mission.

So we did.

Our new name is now – symplr. You can’t get more obvious that that (well… apart from the funky spelling).

“After bringing these three leading companies together, we wanted a name that clearly illustrated our mission,” said Rick Pleczko, President and CEO of symplr. “symplr gets to the point and communicates that our solutions simplify compliance and credentialing, which are challenging and essential areas for all healthcare organizations.”
