Ingenix announced after the market close today that it will acquire health information exchange technology vendor Axolotl of San Jose, CA. Terms were not disclosed.

”HIEs are bringing us closer to the point where all the health care professionals patients select to oversee their care can connect to share information and optimize outcomes," said Andy Slavitt, chief executive officer of Ingenix. "We will work with Axolotl to continue to meet the needs of multiple HIE stakeholders and to expand its technologies that serve health care communities."

We reported on July 23 that Axolotl was seeking a buyer that would be named soon, although the early rumors suggesting RelayHealth as that buyer were incorrect. We reported the Ingenix rumor earlier this afternoon.

Ingenix, a subsidiary of the Fortune 100 UnitedHealth Group, has acquired several healthcare IT companies this year: QualityMetric (outcomes measurement), Executive Health Resources (compliance), and Picis (high acuity systems). Other recent healthcare IT acquisitions by Ingenix include AIM Healthcare Services (payment solutions), Healthia Consulting, Lewin Group (consulting), CareMedic (revenue cycle), Global Works Systems (software), Integris (IT management), Claredi (e-commerce), HealthWatch (payment systems), Innovus Research (pharma software), Advana (claims management), Distance Learning Network (continuing education), and Symmetry Health Data Systems (analytics).
