Health insurer Humana Inc. announced this morning that it has acquired HIE technology vendor Certify Data Systems. The San Jose, CA company, which offers the HealthLogix HIE platform, will operate as a subsidiary of Humana.

Humana VP/CIO Brian LeClaire was quoted in the announcement as saying, “Humana remains focused on leveraging the power of technology to provide a more coordinated patient experience for our members that will enable quality, affordable health care. With the health information exchange platform from Certify we can move closer to creating a virtual integrated delivery health care system that can help us deliver this value-added, simplistic [sic] experience to our members.”

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

I interviewed Certify CEO Marc Willard in February 2012. He reported at that time that the company had 70 health system customers.
