OVERLAND PARK, KS – WellSky has entered into a definitive agreement with Allscripts to acquire CarePort Health, a care coordination software company that connects acute and post-acute providers and payers. WellSky and CarePort will facilitate effective patient care transitions across the continuum — driving better outcomes for patients, providers and payers.
With the addition of CarePort, WellSky is positioned to manage the acute care discharge process, track patients across post-acute care settings, apply patient and population level analytics, and support EMR-based care protocols.
“Together with CarePort, WellSky will establish new, meaningful connections between historically disparate settings of care. We have the exciting opportunity to bring care coordination to more providers in service of delivering more informed, personalized care,” said Bill Miller, CEO of WellSky. “Through this agreement, we’re ensuring our clients have the intelligent technology they need to do right by their patients, collaborate with payers, and succeed in value-based care models. It’s WellSky’s mission to realize care’s potential, and this moves us that much closer to achieving it.”
CarePort’s EHR-agnostic suite of solutions connects the discharge process with post-discharge care coordination — allowing providers and payers to track and manage patients throughout their care journey. By providing end-to-end visibility across the continuum, WellSky and CarePort can improve outcomes, lower costs, and increase patient satisfaction.
“As part of the WellSky team, we will be able to accelerate our mission to connect providers across the continuum. Both of our organizations are aligned in our dedication to proactively bridging gaps in care. Together, we have the technology, analytics, and network to ensure that patients receive seamless care,” said Dr. Lissy Hu, CEO of CarePort. “Joining WellSky means that we can increase vital connections between acute, post-acute, and community care providers to make a meaningful difference in the lives of more patients in more places.”
