ACS to acquire CredenceHealth
The acquisition will enable Xerox-owned ACS to offer its customers a cloud-based tool for monitoring patient data, according to a news release. ACS' new software product, known as Midas+ Live, will incorporate surveillance software from Nashville-based CredenceHealth and will alert clinicians of changes in patients' health status.
“Through our advanced technology that analyzes the insights found inside the massive amounts of information regarding a patient's condition, we're giving healthcare providers real-time relevant knowledge so they can better focus on giving patients the care they need,” said Tom Simas, managing director for ACS' Midas+ solutions, in the news release.
CredenceHealth's monitoring system is also certified by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology as a clinical quality measures reporting module, making users of Midas+ Live potentially eligible for meaningful-use incentive payments, according to ACS.
