(Burlington, Mass., Dec. 1, 2021) – HealthEdge said today it has formed a strategic partnership with Legato Health Technologies, providing multiple HealthEdge products for Legato’s entry into the BPaaS market supporting health plans.
“As Legato enters the BPaaS market, they have identified our solutions as best in breed due to proven modern technology and market success,” said Steve Krupa, HealthEdge Chief Executive Officer. “We are honored that they have selected our capabilities over multiple platforms.
