Central Logic Acquires Ensocare

Healthcare Tech Outlook | Wednesday, November 25, 2020

The acquisition of Ensocare extends Central Logic’s solution to comprise successful transitions beyond hospitals to post-acute care settings—including rehabilitation facilities and skilled nursing, long-term acute care centers, and even the home—by tapping into Ensocare’s active, curated network of more than 50,000 PAC providers countrywide.

FREMONT, CA: Central Logic, leading healthcare access and orchestration firm, announced the acquisition of Omaha-based Ensocare, which mechanizes the inpatient referral process to Post-Acute Care (PAC).

Central Logic's flexible, purpose-built technology solution presently focuses on referrals and transfers into a health system by marrying all available provider, facility, and transportation resources to empower them to operate as one system of care. This approach allows the seamless orchestration of patients to the suitable care level and setting without delay. Eventually, this efficient access to desired care elevates operational and financial performance and patient outcomes.

"This strategic acquisition means that our solutions will now span the care continuum from acute to post-acute care, which will improve transitions into, through and out of the health system, creating true 'systemness' for our clients," said Angie Franks, CEO, Central Logic. "By operating as one, health systems can offer a more seamless experience for their patients across all acuity levels while enabling providers to stay connected and strengthening the relationships with PAC providers in their communities."

The acquisition of Ensocare extends Central Logic's solution to comprise successful transitions beyond hospitals to post-acute care settings—including rehabilitation facilities and skilled nursing, long-term acute care centers, and even the home—by tapping into Ensocare's active, curated network of more than 50,000 PAC providers countrywide. Placement confirmations are protected on average in 30 minutes.

"Our fully integrated solution will provide visibility and access to data that ensures hospital beds are freed in a timely manner when inpatient care is no longer necessary. This decreases length of stay and increases throughput," Franks said. "Further, this kind of efficient orchestration and navigation creates bed availability and access for incoming patients, creates more time for clinicians to operate at the top of their license and elevates revenue capture and reduction of system leakage."

In light of the Ensocare acquisition, Central Logic becomes a vital solution in the market that offers region-wide acute care transfer, transport, and post-acute care transfer competences in one platform, permitting health systems to more cohesively operate as one.

"This combination of two market leaders with a shared vision of optimizing healthcare access and orchestration is creating a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts," Franks said. "The combined 800 hospitals and health systems that Central Logic will now work with will benefit from access to a flexible, purpose-built solution that delivers health systems the necessary network-wide visibility and controls to centralize and standardize all transitions of care."

At present, the two firms share only a small number of clients, which presents an excellent opportunity for addressable market expansion for Central Logic, and new opportunities for health system clients.
