Truven Health Analytics helps providers address pressing healthcare questions through data insights and consulting services. UbiCare content and technology lets health systems guide patients through an episode of care from pre-care to point of care and post-care.

Executives of both companies say they want to work together to empower patients and help hospitals implement value-based care.

As healthcare shifts to patient-centered care, the integration of UbiCare’s population-level health information and engagement expertise with Truven’s medication and problem-specific educational content will help hospitals holistically educate patients, set expectations and encourage shared decision-making.

“Building on our shared healthcare expertise, we are excited to work together on enterprise healthcare solutions, whether it’s a better way to engage patients, improve quality of care or make better use of existing digital solutions,” says Betsy Weaver, CEO of UbiCare, a digital health company that provides engagement solutions that enable hospitals to offer patient-centered approaches and participate in value-based care initiatives.

Truven Health provides performance improvement solutions built on data integrity, advanced analytics and domain knowledge.
