INDIANAPOLIS – January 5, 2017 – Healthx, Inc., the leader in cloud-based digital engagement solutions for healthcare payers and other stakeholders, today announced that it has received a strategic growth investment from JMI Equity, a growth equity firm focused on investing in leading software companies.
Founded in 1998, Healthx connects healthcare payers with members and providers through digital portals, helping stakeholders navigate the healthcare journey and facilitating true collaborative care. The Healthx platform provides self-service member and provider tools that reduce administrative costs for payers, as well as solutions that better enable payers to manage changing regulatory requirements. In addition, Healthx’s engagement solutions help members manage and improve their health through tools such as wellness management and telemedicine.
“Healthcare payers are demanding more sophisticated solutions, particularly around member engagement, as a proven model to reduce costs and improve member health,” said Sean Downs, CEO for Healthx. “The growth investment from JMI comes at a time of sustained growth for Healthx, not just in terms of market share, but particularly around product development to deliver the sophistication and engagement tools needed to improve healthcare. The partnership with JMI is exciting as it will further accelerate these efforts, and supports our vision for better healthcare through technology innovation.”
“Healthx is a true pioneer in cloud-based solutions for healthcare and we have been impressed with the company’s recent growth,” said Matt Emery, a general partner at JMI Equity. “We are excited about this partnership and the opportunity to help drive the next phase of growth.” Emery added, “The feedback we received from Healthx’s customers is a real testament to the company’s strengths in product innovation and customer success. The customers we spoke with were very confident about Healthx’s ability to continue helping them meet their strategic needs well into the future.”
As Healthx continues to expand its market share, Downs cited the need for provider and member engagement upgrades among many health plans, especially larger plans. “We have found that many health plans have either built their own solution or used version 1.0 solutions from claim system vendors,” said Downs. “Many plans are now recognizing the need for more sophisticated tools to drive deeper member and provider engagement. Healthx helps these plans achieve this goal.”
TripleTree acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Healthx for this transaction.
