Humana acquires Certify Data Systems

Humana has acquired Certify Data Systems, a specialist in health information exchange (HIE) technology.

Terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.

Hospitals, physicians and laboratories across the nation have adopted the HealthLogix Enterprise HIE platform from Certify. The platform provides two-way sharing of clinical information across disparate electronic health record systems (EHRs), connecting healthcare providers and allowing them to share relevant patient health information in real-time.

“Humana remains focused on leveraging the power of technology to provide a more coordinated patient experience for our members that will enable quality, affordable health care,” says Brian LeClaire, senior vice president and chief information and service officer for Humana. “With the health information exchange platform from Certify we can move closer to creating a virtual integrated delivery health care system that can help us deliver this value-added, simplistic experience to our members.”

Marc Willard, founder and chief executive officer of Certify Data Systems, will continue leading Certify.

“Certify Data Systems has been a pioneer in using health information exchange technology to help providers exchange essential health information in real-time,” says Willard. “Humana is focused on ensuring its members can benefit from a health information exchange platform. We can help Humana scale their network to bring the benefits of this technology to Humana’s provider community.”

Certify will operate as a subsidiary of Humana, serving hospital, physician and laboratory customers.
