US-based healthcare company Carenet Health has announced plans to acquire clinical decision support services provider Health Dialog to bolster its clinical team and advance its healthcare insights-driven platform.

The acquisition will give Carenet access to a combined platform, analytics and clinical experts, through which the company would aim to improve efficiency and financial performance for its clients.

Health Dialog offers tailored population health services to various stakeholders in the healthcare sector, including health plans, providers, employers and pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Its services are designed to enhance wellness while cutting down healthcare expenditures and enhancing performance on crucial quality measures, such as those from the US National Committee for Quality Assurance’s Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (NCQA’s HEDIS) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Stars ratings.

The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Rite Aid, a pharmaceutical chain based in Pennsylvania.

Carenet CEO John Erwin said: “Health Dialog has long been renowned for the quality and commitment of its team as well as the depth of its analytics and insights.
