Xerox continues to invest in healthcare analytics by making its second such acquisition in recent months, this time picking up RSA Medical, which offers predictive analytics to health and life insurers.
In May, Xerox targeted population health management by acquiring Healthy Communications Institute, which offers a cloud-based analytics and collaboration platform for hospitals, health departments and about 60 stakeholder coalitions. And in January 2015, Xerox introduced new analytics software that estimates excessive hospital readmission rates and associated Medicare financial penalties for two years in the future.
RSA Medicals MedGine health assessment and risk management analytics platform enables insurers to identify medical conditions and other risk factors, and engage members in maintaining wellness or managing chronic conditions.
Of RSA Medicals approximately 500 employees, about 400 are telephonic medical interviewers and member engagement agents, a Xerox spokesperson says. The acquisition expands Xeroxs ability to support insurers through all stages of member service.
RSA Medical CEO Rocco Salviola and employees will remain at the company with Salviola reporting to Kelly Rakowski, senior vice president of the healthcare payer services unit of Xerox. The acquisition is expected to close in the third quarter and terms were not disclosed.
