SPH and SA Ignite Partner to Strengthen Quality Payment Program Offerings for Value-Based Healthcare Organizations

Combines portfolio of population health solutions with advanced MIPS analytics

SPH Analytics, a top-ranked Population Health Management vendor, announced today that the SPH Analytics’ population health line of business will merge with SA Ignite, forming an expanded population health and quality measurement- focused subsidiary within the SPH portfolio.  SA Ignite is a recognized leader in delivering solutions that help healthcare providers achieve top performance scores and financial incentives in the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) program, helping their clients successfully transition to fee-for-value payment models.  The deal is pending final shareholder approval and is expected to close on Tuesday, July 16, 2019.

“We are acutely aware of the complex environment that healthcare organizations are facing today, and it is our commitment to continue providing solutions that help any organization, regardless of their stage in the journey, succeed in today’s era of value-based care,” said Amy Amick, President and CEO of SPH Analytics. “This strategic alignment creates a meaningfully expanded client base and enables us to build on our impressive track record of helping clients achieve substantive and sustained results in their shift to value-based care.  The SA Ignite solution set blends with our Population Care and Population Value solution lines in a highly complementary manner that will help us better serve our combined client base.”
