OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - WellSky is buying CarePort Health from Allscripts in a bid to improve patient care transitions across the continuum and drive better outcomes. 

With the addition of CarePort, WellSky is positioned to manage the acute-care discharge process, track patients across post-acute care settings, apply patient and population level analytics, and support EMR-based care, the company says. 

“Together with CarePort, WellSky will establish new, meaningful connections between historically disparate settings of care,” said Bill Miller, CEO of WellSky. “We have the exciting opportunity to bring care coordination to more providers in service of delivering more informed, personalized care. Through this agreement, we’re ensuring our clients have the intelligent technology they need to do right by their patients, collaborate with payers, and succeed in value-based care models. It’s WellSky’s mission to realize care’s potential, and this moves us that much closer to achieving it.” 

The deal is expected to close before the end of the year. 

CarePort’s platform bridges acute and post-acute EHR data, providing visibilities into the entire patient journey for providers, physicians, payers and ACOs. Its network comprises thousands of providers connected across the U.S.
