Healthia Consulting is becoming part of Ingenix, a health information technology firm, under an agreement announced today.
Nine-year-old Healthia, Minneapolis, will retain its focus on healthcare consulting while broadening its capabilities through Ingenix, which uses health IT to help clients improve affordability, quality, usability and accessibility, officials said in a news release. Healthia will have access to Igenix's technology and human resources to provide consulting clients a greater level of service.
Eden Prairie, Minn.-based Ingenix is a subsidiary of insurance giant UnitedHealth Group. This is the second consulting firm this year to become part of Ingenix, which in June acquired Lewin Group, Falls Church, Va.
