SymphonyCare LLC, a population health and patient engagement solutions company, announces today that it acquired the Empower patient portal business unit from Birmingham, AL-based Influence Health. The deal was led by SymphonyAlpha Ventures, the venture capital arm of Symphony Corporation, a leader in digital healthcare innovation and technology solutions.
“We are excited to add Empower’s leading patient engagement solutions to Symphony’s digital healthcare ecosystem, as we feel we can provide additional value to the already sizable Empower install base,” stated SymphonyCare founder and CEO Ravi Kalla. “Similarly, Empower adds unique patient engagement functionality to our clients’ existing population health management programs driven by our Navigate care coordination and analytics technology.”

New Opportunities in Chronic Care Management
In 2017, CMS has made the opportunity far more enticing for providers to increase the reimbursement of CCM services by expanding the group of reimbursable services under new CCM-based codes, as well by relaxing some of the requirements for such reimbursement. As a result, providers have plenty of opportunities to benefit from expansion of valuable CCM services through their staff or through competent partners.
