Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG), the leader in diagnostic imaging, image-guided therapy, patient monitoring and health informatics, has just acquired Georgia-based Wellcentive, Inc., a privately-held provider of cloud-based population health management and data analytics solutions for physicians and their organizations, for an undisclosed price.
Wellcentive’s capabilities include importing, aggregating and analyzing clinical, claims and financial data across healthcare and hospital systems to allow providers to enhance their coordinated care delivery to satisfy new requirements and reimbursement models. Wellcentive’s applications will be assimilated into the Philip’s HealthSuite Cloud.
This acquisition follows Royal Philips’ recent e-health acquisition of PathXL Ltd., an e-health company that offers a range of digital pathology image analysis, workflow software and educational tools to the research and education segments of the pathology and bio-pharma markets.
This transaction marks the fourth acquisition of a population health company in 2016.
