Cerner announced this morning that it will acquire Clairvia, a Durham, NC-based vendor of care coordination and workforce management solutions that are used by more than 400 organizations. Cerner will integrate Clairvia’s Care Value Management suite into its Healthe Intent and CareAware solutions as a comprehensive resource management offering.

”Health care worldwide is experiencing a resourcing deficit that is forecasted to grow dramatically in the next several years," said Jeff Townsend, Cerner executive vice president and chief of staff. "The fundamental supply of staff and other assets simply cannot meet rising patient demand. Clairvia’s predictive models driven by EHR data not only cut costs by aligning the right resource at the right time but, more importantly, optimize patient outcomes. With this acquisition, we are solidifying our commitment to the workforce management marketplace and interoperable cloud-based solutions that focus on providing positive clinical, operational and financial returns for our clients."

The acquisition is expected to close this month and is not expected to have a material impact on Cerner’s fiscal year results. Clairvia President and CEO Beth Pickard will join Cerner with the acquisition.

HIStalk interviewed Beth Pickard last December.
