IMI Health Acquires Boundary Medical Joining Outcomes Measurement with Business Data Analysis

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. --(Business Wire)-- IMI Health (IMI), a health care information company, has acquired Minneapolis-based BoundaryMedical, a leading outcomes measurement software company.

Boundary's Outcome Enterprise™ software complements IMI's health care business intelligence tools giving both companies' customers more robust data collection and analysis. This will answer demands for clinical outcomes from consumers, regulators, payers and providers as our nation seeks solutions to increase quality and reduce costs in our health care system.

"This combination will help our customers and their patients make more informed decisions about patient care options," said Leon Dowling, CEO and founder of IMI. "In addition to IMI's ability to integrate a wide range of data from different platforms across their current systems, Boundary provides a mechanism to gather data from patients, manufacturers and providers in a customized format." IMI's national customer base includes health plans, pharmacy benefits managers and providers. Boundary's customers are primarily providers, clinical research facilities and medical product companies.

"There is both overlap and diversity in both of our current client bases," Dowling said.

In today's cost-conscious environment, health care businesses are seeking user-friendly technology tools to capture and measure data in a format that works for their individual situation.

Boundary's customers will benefit from IMI's comprehensive health information dashboard, while IMI's customers gain Boundary's flexibility and robust measurement.

"This acquisition will enable us to grow our Outcomes Enterprise platform and develop others," said Mark Walinske chief business development officer for IMI and former Boundary CEO.

IMI is one of 11 certified NCQA HEDIS® Software providers in the country. IMI is currently raising expansion capital to build a sales and marketing team to further expand the successful growth of both companies. The Boundary senior management team including Walinske and Bruce Batten, vice president of clinical performance and development, will remain with IMI and the Boundary operations have moved to Nashville. Keith Gregg, chairman of JRG Ventures was instrumental in bringing the two companies together.
