COLUMBIA, S.C. – Companion Data Services (CDS) has signed a three-year renewal contract with Professional Data Solutions (PDS), a Pennsylvania-based information technology firm that provides systems management to corporations.

“We are very excited about continuing our relationship with PDS,” said Lola Jordan, president of CDS. “PDS remains one of the strongest players in the systems management marketplace and we are happy to be working with them.”

CDS has been hosting applications for PDS since 2011. It will continue to host applications to support the interplan teleprocessing system that PDS manages for major health insurance plans nationwide.

“We have been a customer of CDS for several years and their staff has done an outstanding job of supporting us and our interplan clients,” said Paul Maroney, vice president of PDS.

The program links participating health care providers across the United States and abroad with insurance companies through a single electronic network for claims processing and reimbursement.
