Atlanta, GA, United States, 2013/09/11 - Third acquisition in a year as company strengthens its identity, fraud and clinical analytics to offer 360° view of health care providers - Enclarity.com / LexisNexis.com.
LexisNexis® Risk Solutions today announced the acquisition of Enclarity, Inc. an industry-leading health care provider data and information solutions company. The deal will enable LexisNexis to add Enclarity's health care provider data to its existing analytics platforms and workflows, and help customers contain health care costs and improve the quality of health care outcomes. The acquisition follows the transfer of clinical-analytics-focused MEDai into LexisNexis Risk Solutions from LexisNexis sister company Elsevier, Inc. in July 2013 and the fall 2012 purchase of EDIWatch, a provider of fraud, waste and abuse technology solutions.
With the acquisition of Enclarity, LexisNexis becomes a leader in health care provider data and provider identity transparency which helps:
• Health care payers and providers manage provider files more efficiently and gain greater transparency into the identity of each provider;
• Health care customers reduce fraud, waste and abuse by better assessing the risk associated with provider identities and quickly identifying hidden, complex and collusive activities; and
• Consumers make more informed decisions by giving them transparency into the identity, practicing patterns and integrity of the providers in their health benefit programs.
"This acquisition demonstrates our continued commitment to helping health care organizations address cost-containment head-on by improving effectiveness and efficiencies, applying clinical analytics and reducing costs and offering greater identity transparency," said Lee Rivas, CEO Public Sector and Health Care.
Through these three acquisitions, LexisNexis now offers end-to-end health care solutions enabling cost containment by reducing exposure of fraud, waste and abuse through detection, recovery and prevention, along with improved clinical outcomes through identity management, predictive modeling and clinical analytics.
