Partnership aims to expand data analytics and workflow automation options for post-acute healthcare providers
Today SimpleLTC and Briggs Healthcare jointly announced they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Briggs will acquire SimpleLTC. As a wholly owned subsidiary, SimpleLTC will fully maintain its brand, employees and product growth strategies.
Founded in 2003, SimpleLTC offers software products that help long-term care providers simplify data management and analytics, automate manual processes, and comply with regulatory requirements. Over the past three years, SimpleLTC has launched a suite of new analytics tools allowing providers to use predictive intelligence in order to improve quality measures, reduce rehospitalizations, and optimize reimbursement.
Briggs Healthcare, the leader in healthcare documentation and regulatory solutions for over 65 years, continues to expand its reach in post-acute care, including long-term care, assisted living, home care, hospice, and other health care markets. Under the Briggs leadership, SimpleLTC intends to further develop and expand its data analytics product line into additional post-acute and healthcare markets.
“For decades, healthcare providers have trusted Briggs to deliver documentation tools which support regulatory compliance and quality outcomes,” said Bruce Dan, Briggs Healthcare CEO. “With the acquisition of SimpleLTC, Briggs offers a solution to our customers to unlock the tremendous value of the data they collect and to use that insight to improve their day-to-day operations.”
“This relationship is good news for both our customers and the market,” said Ed Jones, SimpleLTC President. “SimpleLTC and Briggs share an aligned vision for creating products and methodologies that simplify the complex world of healthcare. With the support of Briggs, we believe we can expand the capabilities of our already popular software tools so that providers can better understand their data, make better decisions, and provide better overall care. Our customers will be able to count on the same excellent products and support they’re used to, with the added benefit of Briggs’ strong reputation and support behind us.”
