Our Story

After years of witnessing healthcare organizations of all sizes struggle with denials management and underpayments while working at Epic, the leading EHR system in the country, we wondered how that could be. We realized that despite an abundance of data and dashboards, there has historically been little in the way of translating this overload of information into action.
That's why we stepped in.

Our team developed CARMA, our AI-powered analytics platform designed specifically for denials and underpayment solutions, to facilitate top-tier consulting. Because we believe you should get paid what you deserve.

Alec Nicolaysen
Chief Operating Officer


Austin Sober
Chief Executive Officer

During his tenure as a claims and remittance implementer at Epic, Austin worked with healthcare organizations collectively generating over $115 billion in annual revenue. After witnessing the extent of write offs due to denials, he knew there had to be a better way.

In addition to working with clients, Austin spearheaded several process improvement efforts, developing tools to improve the efficacy of system audits and better facilitate the analysis of revenue cycle data for Epic's entire community.

Austin left Epic in October 2020 to start developing the algorithms that would become the core of Claim Capital's analytical framework. From working with clients to developing new analytical functionality, Austin jumps in wherever he can help.

When not managing the day-to-day of claims and remittance installs, Alec led internal projects focused on the improvement of install processes, ease-of-adoption for Epic’s customers, and the creation of tools enabling data-driven decision making.

At Claim Capital, Alec has been a key player in designing the algorithms that power our data-driven consulting practice, architecting and implementing a HIPAA-compliant cloud infrastructure, and strengthening the technology behind Claim Capital’s operations.
