HISTalk reports that Ingenix is acquiring A-Life Medical. I have speculated on the grand strategy behind Ingenix's acquisition spree (see for example, this, this, this, or this) and it's getting more clear now: Ingenix wants to have a presence in multiple touchpoints in the healthcare IT value chain. They are assembling data collection and analytical components that used together will provide a powerful analytics-driven (outcomes driven?) healthcare delivery model.
This has been a busy week at work with our planning projects in full swing. I'm looking forward to AHIMA later this week and I plan to resuming a more predictable posting schedule after that. Much to report on based on what I've learnt in these past few weeks!
