Health insurer Humana Inc. has acquired Anvita Health, a vendor of clinical data aggregation and analytics software. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Louisville, Ky.-based Humana has been an Anvita client, analyzing member gaps in care and drug safety, among other issues.

San Diego-based Anvita's software enables point-of-care data to be mixed with batched data, such as medical and pharmacy claims, then analyzed in real-time. The application also enables the viewing of generalized population summary statistics and individual patient cases together. The company serves providers, health plans, pharmacy benefit managers, and vendors of electronic health records and personal health records.

Humana is one of a handful of major commercial payers--including Aetna, Kaiser and UnitedHealthcare--committed to opening its claims data to researchers, along with Medicare and Medicaid. Humana increasingly is finding a need to implement stronger analytical tools and broaden its outreach efforts, and Anvita will help strengthen its clinical management across a number of initiatives, says Paul Kusserow, chief strategy and corporate development officer.

Anvita Health will continue to operate independently as a Humana subsidiary, according to the insurer.
