CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

MethodCare, Inc., a leading provider of predictive analytics solutions to help healthcare organizations achieve financial and clinical excellence, announced today that it was acquired by ZirMed®, the premier SaaS enterprise business and clinical performance solution for healthcare. MethodCare’s predictive analytics and robust workflow will help expand ZirMed’s next generation revenue cycle and population health solutions.

ZirMed plans to immediately expand its presence in Chicago with a Healthcare Analytics Center of Excellence led by MethodCare’s team of data scientists and business intelligence engineers. Its implementation and support teams will also remain in Chicago with plans for imminent growth. MethodCare will operate under the name ZirMed.

MethodCare has achieved exceptional growth among the nation’s top hospitals and health systems by developing robust workflow, automation and real-time analytics that are critical to delivering greater value care,” said Tom Butts, chief executive officer, ZirMed. “By merging MethodCare’s proven predictive analytics offering with ZirMed’s population health and revenue cycle solutions, health care providers can now take advantage of the first true centralized end-to-end performance management platform to streamline operations and support greater strategic, data-driven business decisions.”
