E-procurement solution provider Hybrent has announced that it is is combining with Procurement Partners, a provider of procure-to-pay (P2P) solutions for post-acute care and senior living communities.

The combination of the two companies yields one of the largest procure-to-pay organisations in healthcare.

"We are thrilled that such a reputable partner recognised Hybrent's efforts to help our customers better manage their procurement," said Ken Tighe, CEO of Hybrent.

The combined company will collaborate on opportunities to improve their customer experience and maximise growth. Hybrent will operate as an independent company and continue to focus on ambulatory surgery centres, physician offices, and post-acute sectors. 

Navneet Gosal, CTO and Co-founder of Hybrent, said, "We are confident that our future with Procurement Partners will help take what we have created to the next level, and we are excited to deliver even more value to our customers in this next chapter."

Hybrent provides ambulatory surgery centres, physician offices, and post-acute providers nationwide. It helps healthcare organisations lower costs and save time with its easy-to-use purchasing, inventory management, and invoicing software.

Karthik Reddy, Co-founder and Partner, Blume Ventures, said Hybrent was a Blume Fund II and Montane Fund I investment. "Both firms supported the company equally through two rounds of financing and the company grew to a few million dollars of ARR, serving the US market alone.

"Aided by the pandemic tailwinds, the company grew over 2X, spurring interest from several strategic buyers. In Procurement Partners (backed by Serent), we found the most forward thinking partner for the firm, its founders, and investors. We are delighted with the exit and the handsome returns that Ken, Nav, and Micah, the founders , have provided for Blume and Montane in less than five years."
