Global health IT services provider Emids has acquired Encore, A Quintiles Company, the company announced this morning. Terms were not disclosed.

Pharma development services vendor Quintiles acquired 300-employee Encore Health Resources in 2014 for an unspecified price. Quintiles merged with competitor IMS Health to form QuintilesIMS in a $9 billion deal in May 2016.

Encore will be operated as an Emids business unit under Tom Niehaus, president and CEO of Encore. Encore co-founder Dana Sellers will join the Emids board. Encore has 200 consultants.

Sellers and Ivo Nelson launched Encore Health Resources in early 2009 with headquarters in Houston, focusing on EHR-related services. The company gradually transitioned into analytics.

Nashville-based Emids also has offices in London and Bangalore.

Emids Founder and CEO Saurabh Sinha said in a statement, “As healthcare becomes more integrated and the focus on consumerism grows, payers and providers are working more closely together. The ability to provide healthcare technology expertise and solutions that serve both payers and providers, as well as healthcare technology partners, will be critical to help our customers succeed in the future.”
