Harpeth Capital Advises MDsave on Strategic Investment

Harpeth Capital, LLC is pleased to announce that it served as exclusive financial advisor to MDsave Inc. in connection with a strategic minority investment by Change Healthcare Solutions, LLC.

Headquartered in Nashville with a second office in San Francisco, MDsave ( is an innovative technology and healthcare payments company that simplifies the healthcare services shopping and payment experience for consumers.  The Company works with providers to bundle complex medical procedures into a single upfront payment, thereby providing consumers with discounted out-of-pocket healthcare bills and a higher-satisfaction retail experience.  MDsave’s patented workflow has been implemented in hundreds of hospitals nationwide, saving consumers more than 40% of their out-of-pocket costs while significantly increasing net collections for providers.
