MEDECISION ACQUIRES AXISPOINT HEALTH’S PLATFORM BUSINESS

Medecision supports platform clients through transition to Aerial

DALLAS, TX and DENVER, CO – October 3, 2017—Medecision, a category leader in population health management solutions for risk-bearing entities, announced today the acquisition of over 50 clients from AxisPoint Health. In this transaction, Medecision acquired the clients that currently use CCMS and VITAL, recently rebranded as AXIS. AxisPoint Health’s services businesses, including CarePoint, GuidePoint, and Analytix, are not included in this transaction and remain under management by AxisPoint Health.

This acquisition makes Medecision the largest independent provider of care management platforms and applications in the United States, now supporting over 50 million lives for nearly 100 of the nation’s leading health plans and care delivery organizations. AxisPoint Health’s platform clients join Medecision’s community of national and regional brands and population health pioneers, expanding the Company’s footprint and strengthening its presence in markets where risk-sharing arrangements and value-based contracting require insights-actionable workflow throughout the care ecosystem, all the way to consumers and their caregivers. Medecision currently serves health plans and care delivery organizations that manage population risk.

“We are committed to providing our new clients with a great customer experience on their current platform as well as a path to the benefits that Aerial clients enjoy–advanced functionality and value, a strong product roadmap, improved access to innovation and world-class data and security services,” said Deborah M. Gage, CEO and President at Medecision. “These software customers can now rapidly modernize their care management programs by migrating to the more fully featured and advanced Aerial platform and applications, proven to lower the total cost of operations and improve their ability to manage risk and care,” Gage continued.  “We are excited to welcome a team of talented and dedicated employees into our community of hundreds of healthcare liberators.”

“I am thrilled that our platform clients now have a partner like Medecision,” said Christopher A. Long, President of AxisPoint Health. “Since the CCMS platform retirement announcement, many customers have asked about the critical enhancements and new functionality required for their programs. The demands of risk-bearing operations are only outpaced by the technological advancements critical to sustainability and security. Through their next-generation ecosystem, I believe Medecision offers our platform clients the best opportunity for today and going forward.”

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
