New Deal Helps Hospital Clients Make More Informed Business Decisions in Increasingly Regulated Health Care Market
SC&H Capital, an investment banking and advisory firm focused on middle market and growth companies, served as the exclusive financial advisor for the acquisition of Professional Data Services (PDS) by iVantage Health Analytics, Inc.
The addition of PDS represents the continued expansion of the iVantage Health Analytics solution suite into the marketplace. PDS offers managed care analytics, internal/external payment benchmarking solutions to support payor negotiations, and strategic planning/execution services for hospitals.
Originally developed for hospitals at the Hospital Association of Southern California (HASC), PDS provides a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based analytic tool developed to help with hospital revenue optimization and benchmarking by using proprietary paid claims data. Hospital associations around the country are adopting this tool to support their association members’ needs for bundled payment contracting.
“We were pleased to be able to serve as the trusted advisor to iVantage throughout the entire lifecycle of this deal,” said Kevin O’Sullivan, Senior Vice President at SC&H Capital. “This is a significant deal because it will allow iVantage to help its hospital clients make better business decisions in a health care climate that is becoming increasingly regulated.”
Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
