A week after announcing its formation, privately held Persivia made its first acquisition. The Lowell, Massachusetts-based company, which focuses on population health, precision medical and chronic care management solutions, purchased Alere Analytics, which developed its own real-time Clinical Decision Support and Chronic Care management technologies. More acquisitions may be forthcoming, but for now, the Alere Analytics platform is expected to create “groundbreaking advancements” in chronic care management. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
