Lisa Im, CEO of Performant commented,

Their plan to transition mainly into a healthcare payment integrity services firm is on track, as seen by their second-quarter results, which saw healthcare revenues increase by more than 27% year over year.

They feel there is a huge possibility for them to acquire market share and develop in the healthcare industry. However, the recent increase in the Delta variant of COVID-19 raises some doubts about probable activity slowdowns or stops in the next quarters. They are adopting a measured approach in light of the uncertainties, refining our 2021 healthcare revenue estimate to a range of $80 – $85 million while remaining confident in delivering positive EBITDA results.
