Strata Health Accelerates US Expansion with SilverSearch Acquisition
Calgary, AB – January 31, 2020 – Strata Health announced today the acquisition of SilverSearchTM from Utah-based Mingle Health.
Used by more than 300 hospitals in the United States, SilverSearch is a searchable tablet application that hospital case managers, social workers, and discharge teams use to help patients choose their post-acute care (PAC) provider. Using the SilverSearch tablet, clinicians and patients can browse through a comprehensive database of care options throughout the United States, filtering by CMS ratings, accepted insurance providers, specialized care needs, preferred location, and other preferences that may influence health care choices.
Strata Health is a global leader in transition of care software. Since 2002, Strata Health’s solution suite has provided health systems with waitlist management, recommendation algorithms, and electronic referral capabilities that transform system navigation for clinicians and patients. Relevant patient data is used to evaluate and recommend appropriate services and vacancies across the continuum of care while supporting a wide variety of processes and workflows.
This acquisition adds the SilverSearch best-of-breed service provider database and patient-facing choice support to the Strata Health suite of tools. The combined offering will help health systems and providers further improve efficiency in care transitions, support CMS discharge planning compliance, and empower patients to make informed choices that lead to the best outcomes.
Peter Smith, Strata Health President and CEO, commented, “the combination of these technologies brings to market a comprehensive end-to-end referral solution that offers clinicians, patients, and care providers easy-to-use tools and high-quality information that optimizes patient care transitions.” Strata intends to offer the enhanced platform to all existing customers in Canada, UK, US, New Zealand and Australia.
Will West, CEO of Mingle Health, stated, “we are excited about the new home for the SilverSearch platform and our team members. Combined with Strata’s technology, the complete solution that can now be offered to the market is truly unparalleled. Finding a good home for our SilverSearch solution also allows Mingle Health to focus more completely on our best-in-class quality management and reporting solutions for thousands of providers across the United States.”
“We are really impressed with everything that Mingle Health accomplished with the SilverSearch business in the past five years,” Peter Smith continued. “We are excited to be able to work beside our new SilverSearch staff to offer these hospitals Strata Health’s leading transitions of care platform.” The Strata Health platform ensures patients get the care they need in a timely manner, which leads to optimized length of stay, reduced readmissions and better patient outcomes.
