Definitive Healthcare on Wednesday announced that it has acquired HIMSS Analytics’ Logic, Predict and Analyze assets to enhance its market intelligence platform.
HIMSS Analytics, a Healthcare IT News sister, will continue its focus on maturity models, such as the EMR Adoption Model, and adoption models for analytics, continuity of care and infrastructure.
WHY IT MATTERS
Definitive CEO Jason Krantz said in a statement that combining HIMSS Analytics’ data set, which includes information about health IT products hospitals and facilities have installed and purchasing contracts, with Definitive’s data about healthcare providers will enhance its market intelligence platform for the newly-combined client base.
Definitive added that it will “immediately begin integrating the datasets and platform functionality into a single source of truth. Definitive’s new offering will include improved coverage of IT purchasing intelligence with access to years of proposals and executed contracts, enabling transparency and efficiency in the development of commercial strategies.”
ON THE RECORD
“We identified Definitive Healthcare as the ideal strategic buyer early in the process,” said HIMSS Analytics Executive Vice President Blain Newton. “I can truly say that the combined power of the Definitive Healthcare and HIMSS Analytics data assets creates a solution of never-before-seen value for health care.”
The companies did not disclose financial terms of the deal.
