SPOTLIGHT: UnitedHealth's Ingenix to buy Executive Health Resources, make FQHC version of CareTracker EHR

As you may have read last week in FierceHealthcare, Ingenix, the health IT subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group (NYSE: UNH), on Wednesday announced plans to acquire Executive Health Resources, a Newtown Square, Pa.-company that provides medical-necessity compliance and physician medical management technology to hospitals nationwide. The deal, worth a reported $1.5 billion, would mark UnitedHealth's fifth acquisition of a closely held company outside its core insurance business this year, Bloomberg reports. One day later, Ingenix said it would make a modified version of its CareTracker EHR and practice management system available to Federally Qualified Health Centers in order to help community clinics comply federal "meaningful use" requirements.
