Name change follows transformative strategic investment by DXC Technology and acquisition of care management intellectual properties from Managing Care Solutions
CARY, NC – May 31, 2017 – Smartlink Mobile Systems, a leading provider of value-based healthcare solutions, today announced that the company has changed its name to Smartlink Health Solutions. The name change reflects Smartlink’s expanding multi-pronged approach to wellness and chronic disease management and its focus on enabling clients to accelerate the transition to value-based payment models. The recent acquisition of care management intellectual properties from Managing Care Solutions further strengthened Smartlink’s portfolio.
The name change also reflects the recent strategic investment in Smartlink by DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC), which was recently formed by the completed merger of CSC and the Enterprise Services business of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, a global leader in next-generation IT services and innovative healthcare solutions. The investment has enabled Smartlink to expand its development team and accelerate its ability to bring new innovations to market.
“When we founded Smartlink Mobile in 2012, we set out to provide affordable solutions that help improve the quality of care for all individuals, not just those who are high risk,” said Dr. Siu Tong, CEO, Smartlink. “We initially innovated around improving care management and coordination between patients and their providers via mobile technology. Over the last several years, we have continued to innovate by expanding our suite of patient engagement solutions, and in so doing we have developed a much broader value-based portfolio.”
Dr. Tong added that the company has leveraged its core platform to address the interoperability problem with a rapid and low-cost solution, enabling providers to become clinically integrated from a technology perspective very quickly. Smartlink’s MACRA Solution Suite includes this capability, as well as Value-Based Chronic Care Management, Annual Wellness Visit, and Referral Management software and services.
