The Wall Street Journal reports on the growth in “denial management” software. (Subscription required, or you can read a summary here.)

Doctors and other health providers use these tools to combat denials and reductions in reimbursement from insurers.

The “denial management” niche is likely to spawn new consulting and service opportunities, as well as growing demand for software.  The above chart from software vendor Athenahealth shows strong five-year growth.

This gives me an interesting tech idea …
