Our healthcare IT expertise just got stronger. emids recently acquired Encore Health Resources, a leading health information analytics and technology consulting company.
Encore helps providers plan, implement, and optimize clinical data systems to meet the evolving healthcare IT landscape. It develops analytics to fulfill their growing information and reporting needs. The enterprise brings a team of experts with specialized knowledge in clinical and business applications, and the rich experience of working with large and diverse healthcare systems.
What does this mean for our business? Increased ability to serve the needs of providers, and offer more holistic solutions to payers and technology partners too. As our founder and CEO Saurabh Sinha says, “With the healthcare industry becoming more integrated and the focus on consumerism growing, we’re seeing more collaboration between payers and providers. The ability to provide healthcare technology expertise and solutions that serve both payers and providers will be critical to help our customers succeed in the future.”
Moreover, Encore has a culture of helping customers succeed and enabling the professional growth of its people. And these are ideas that resonate with us. Drawing from these common core values, we’ll be able to offer sharper solutions that set us apart as industry leaders.
Encore will operate as a business unit within emids, spearheaded by Tom Niehaus. Encore founder Dana Sellers will be a member of our board of directors. The acquisition increases our people strength by almost 200 consultants and adds more than 50 health systems to our portfolio, thus deepening our healthcare analytics expertise.
