Digital Reasoning acquires Shareable

Nashville-based Digital Reasoning has acquired Shareable, a local healthcare technology provider which offers a mobile clinical documentation platform. As part of the deal, Shareable’s CEO Hal Andrews will now serve as president of Digital Reasoning’s health care business.

Digital Reasoning is looking to combine its cognitive analytics capabilities with Shareable’s technology that automates clinical data collection at the point of care to create innovative healthcare solutions that boost productivity of health professionals and the quality of care they provide. Also, the solution will provide healthcare professionals with a more comprehensive view of patients by analyzing and understanding electronic patient data such as doctor’s notes, lab results as well as pathology and radiology reports.

“Digital health is a strategic market for Digital Reasoning as we pursue our mission to use cognitive computing to create a better world,” Tim Estes, CEO of Digital Reasoning, said in a statement. “There’s a tremendous demand for disruptive technology in health care to optimize care, improve research, and find waste and fraud. “By acquiring Shareable, we are able to accelerate the development and delivery of new healthcare solutions.”

Digital Reasoning plans to expand its solution by integrating Shareable’s products and services, including Shareable’s iOS apps and cloud-based platform. Also, the idea is to rely on Shareable’s experience in integrating its solution with various Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems and clinical data warehouses, allowing for secure data exchange between on premise and cloud-based systems. This, according to Digital Reasoning, will provide them with more efficient solution today’s healthcare clients need.
