Healwell CEO Dr Alexander Dobranowski said: “This marks our first acquisition in the healthcare technology space, signifying a pivotal moment in Healwell’s history.
“The addition of Pentavere’s data abstraction and structuring capabilities, combined with its access to hospitals and expertise in hospital-based medical specialities, will significantly broaden Healwell’s therapeutic and disease indication spectrum. Being one of the leading technology assets in healthcare AI in Canada, Pentavere is a perfect example of our commitment to revolutionising the industry through establishing and consolidating leading healthcare technologies.”
Furthermore, Pentavere’s Darwen AI technology is expected to complement Healwell’s AI technologies.
The Darwen AI engine is designed to identify patients, who are eligible for approved medications or interventions and help drive therapy growth and penetration.
Pentavere co-founder and CEO Aaron Leibtag said: “Partnering with Healwell will not only enhance the impact of our solutions but also enable us to take a major leap forward in introducing our ground-breaking platform to larger healthcare networks and additional jurisdictions.”
