Health Carousel, a healthcare staffing firm with over 1,000 workers under contract, has acquired the digital health platform Lucidity. The target’s technology platform connects physicians seeking part-time or temporary work directly with medical practices looking to fill open shifts, while also using artificial intelligence (AI) technology to help providers and medical practices make better staffing decisions. Lucidity had previously raised funding from Sustineo Ventures. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Lucidity will continue to operate as a standalone company under its own brand after the transaction. The business will join the Health Carousel Locums Network (HCLN) as part of its new omnichannel offering, where physicians have the option of a full-service concierge and digital experience options when seeking out temporary assignments. The HCLN brand includes companies such as Onyx M.D., a national healthcare staffing agency, which Health Carousel acquired in February.
Health Carousel has made four acquisitions since 2014, and hose focused on the consolidation of other staffing firms. The acquisition of Lucidity is the company’s fifth acquisition and the only acquisition in the digital health sector.
