Cerner will rebrand PureWellness as Cerner Wellness and offer the platform alongside its Cerner Millennium and Cerner HealtheIntent products. PureWellness' solutions allow companies and health plans to administer and manage their wellness programs.

In the release, Cerner noted that the deal will allow it to offer a suite of population health management tools to clients such as accountable care organizations, managed-care organizations, employers, insurers and providers.
