ABOUT Healthcare, a provider of software-as-a-service (Saas)-based hospital operations solutions, has acquired AI-powered healthcare technology company Edgility for an undisclosed amount.  

Edgility helps in facilitating real-time operational monitoring and management that leads to enhanced patient progression, optimised capacity, and accelerated discharge velocity.  

By acquiring Edgility, ABOUT aims to improve its care orchestration technology, offering a next-generation patient flow model from admission to discharge, and providing healthcare organisations with predictive and prescriptive analytics for improved decision-making. 

The integration of Edgility’s capabilities with ABOUT’s technology is set to create a system-wide solution that facilitates patient transitions to the appropriate facility at the right time, enhancing visibility and optimisation through AI-driven decision support. 

ABOUT’s enhanced care orchestration solution, now inclusive of Edgility’s technology, enables health systems to implement command centre strategies effectively.  

The company said that it connects and improves operations, such as admit management, transfers, patient flow, daily huddles, hospital-at-home, discharges, and referral management to post-acute and behavioural health settings.

The integration of ABOUT and Edgility creates a suite of solutions that automate and streamline the coordination of reducing errors, complex tasks, and delays in patient care management. 

This combined platform is designed to support health systems at various levels, from line-level operations to executive decision-making.  

It aims to improve discharge processes and patient velocity, supporting both operational and financial goals while ensuring optimal patient outcomes.  

Users of the new solution gain real-time situational awareness of discharge metrics, facilitating more efficient patient movement and placement, noted ABOUT.  

The solution leverages AI-driven forecasting and predicts discharge goals, incorporating discharge planning from the point of admission and offering insights at both patient and system levels to identify discharge barriers early and manage discharge progression effectively. 

Edgility’s purchase continues the expansion efforts of ABOUT, following the acquisitions of Acuity Link and Ensocare.  

ABOUT CEO Jonathan Shoemaker said: “Our acquisition of Edgility completes a powerful, new, end-to-end care orchestration solution that connects people, data, workflows, and systems to improve outcomes and enable better coordinated care. 

“Health systems can now derive deep situational awareness and decision support across patient progression at individual and system levels, removing friction points and natural delays, ultimately improving coordination at each step of the patient journey.”
