(2005-10-08) WebMD IPO

In the ongoing WebMD saga, they've now renamed the company to Emdeon with a focus on business services (coming from the transaction-processing business that Healtheon had acquired before it merged into WebMD, limiting the WebMD name to the health-info portion, and done an IPO on that piece (selling off part while still keeping it as a subsidiary). Too bad the content business is still losing money.

And that's some rich Executive Compensation, with a handful of execs making more than $750k each in base salary.

Update: renamed 2015 to "Change Healthcare".
