Kepro announced today that it has acquired substantially all the assets of Independent Medical Expert Consulting Services, Inc. (IMEDECS), a URAC-accredited independent medical review services company that provides peer review, external appeals and dispute resolution services to health plans. This acquisition will strengthen Kepro’s quality oversight solutions and its longstanding track record as one of the largest quality improvement organizations (QIO) in the industry.

“We continue to focus on bringing our clients exceptional value and expertise, and we are uniquely focused on increasing quality outcomes at all levels of the healthcare system,” said Dr. Susan Weaver, President and Chief Executive Officer, Kepro. “IMEDECS is a natural fit for us as the company shares our values of compassionate oversight and care, as well as rigorous clinical review. We could not be more pleased to welcome IMEDECS to the Kepro family.”

IMEDECS was among the first companies accredited as an Independent Review Organization and the strength of its information security systems has been recognized with a HITRUST certification.
