Intermedix buys WPC

Joel Portice, Intermedix CEO, believes data science and AI will help better assist customers in managing care and optimizing their revenue cycles.

Intermedix Corp., the Nashville-based developer of cloud-based clinical and financial analytics technology, has acquired Brentwood, Tennessee-based WPC Healthcare in a move it says will improve its data science offerings.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"Data science and machine learning are the future of healthcare," said Joel Portice, CEO of Intermedix, in a statement, adding that WPC will help Intermedix better assist customers in managing care and optimizing their revenue cycles.

Intermedix helps more than 15,000 healthcare providers assess clinical, operational, utilization and financial metrics as they work to improve quality and efficiency. WPC Healthcare's machine learning and predictive analytics technology will bolster those capabilities, he said.

The company's data science team will join the business analysts and data scientists from Intermedix at the company's innovation lab in Nashville.
