Second Deal in Two Days

MediQuant Purchases HeF Solutions to Continue Building Comprehensive Suite of Services

Brings Data Conversion In-House

Finalizing the second deal in a week, MediQuant, the leading innovator and provider of enterprise active archiving solutions to hospitals and health systems, announced today that it has executed a purchase contract for HeF Solutions. HeF is a healthcare technology firm specializing in electronic medical records (EMR) data conversions, legacy data archival and technical services that support needed access to clinical records.

The agreement deepens MediQuant’s data conversion services, expanding the tools, resources and capabilities offered to clients who require Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) services to manage a shift between EMR systems. This is the second step in a week MediQuant has taken to further its capability to serve clients, complementing its recent incorporation of extraction services through DataEmerge. Collectively, the acquisitions reinforce MediQuant’s position as the leader in the healthcare enterprise archiving space.

We are excited about strengthening MediQuant’s end-to-end offering.
— Daniel Alex, CEO of HeF Solutions

“These additional resources give us the ability to streamline our service offering and reinforce a responsive, consistent and unified approach,” said Jim Jacobs, Chief Executive Officer at MediQuant. “We welcome the HeF team and value their expertise. MediQuant and HeF clients will continue as planned, but now have the commitment of both companies to ensure speed and accuracy of conversion, data archiving and in-house extraction. Together, these teams solidify MediQuant’s broad expertise in meeting the needs of the most complex, time-constrained EMR transitions.”

HeF Solutions has helped clients convert data since 2006, following a six-step process called RightPath® Procmigrate so they can map extensive data records from their legacy systems. The company’s Chief Executive Officer, Daniel Alex continues to serve dedicated clients based on HeF’s traditional commitment to innovative technology and expert support for quality data management.

“Joining forces is the ideal way to ensure clients have the most effective, accurate and efficient conversion process when switching from one EHR to another,” said Alex. “We are excited about strengthening MediQuant’s end-to-end offering.”

Already recognized as one of the fastest growing HIT services, MediQuant is on track to continue its dramatic growth while also expanding the scope of service to build a comprehensive solution for all elements of enterprise active archiving and management for both financial and clinical data.

MediQuant will showcase its enterprise active archiving solutions at the HIMSS19 Global Conference and Exhibition from February 11-15, 2019 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.

MediQuant Acquires DataEmerge

MediQuant, the leading innovator and provider of enterprise active archiving solutions to hospitals and health systems, announced today the acquisition of DataEmerge, a leading data extraction service and long-time cooperative partner with MediQuant in supporting speed to value for clients.

The agreement will add tools, resources and capabilities, making MediQuant one of the only companies to offer complete in-house extraction services, while continuing to have DataEmerge serve others in the industry.

Culturally, it’s a perfect fit of two families that have been close for years. Cliff and team have been great collaborators in helping us become the leading enterprise active archive provider.

DataEmerge has helped clients migrate hundreds of EMR, financial and other clinical systems and map billions of data records from their legacy systems. Founder and CEO Cliff Skinner brings years of experience in Healthcare IT consultancy, supported by his leadership team, including Chief Technology Officer Kevin Saffer and Data Migration Specialist Alex Van Schoyck. In the five years since its inception, the company has become a leading provider to the healthcare industry, offering data migration from legacy source systems that enable clients to access their legacy data more cost-effectively.

“This merger is an opportunity for both MediQuant and DataEmerge to grow and expand our offerings and quality,” said Jim Jacobs, Chief Executive Officer at MediQuant. “Culturally, it’s a perfect fit of two families that have been close for years. Cliff and team have been great collaborators in helping us become the leading enterprise active archive provider.”

Working together to offer Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) services, both firms have expanded quickly during the prevailing trend of industry consolidation. The focus of DataEmerge on data extractions for most of the healthcare financial and clinical systems will enhance MediQuant’s success in all phases of ETL and legacy data management. With this merger, MediQuant plans to deepen its commitment to efficiently collecting data from multiple sources and offering rapid and accurate transformation to single systems that increase access to all data.

Skinner will continue to lead the DataEmerge product line, supporting all of his current clients with the same dedication and focus on growth.

“DataEmerge is excited to become a part of the MediQuant portfolio. We will continue to lead in cost- and time- effective data extractions while gaining the resources and technology to make sure we offer our clients the most complete solutions for their needs,” said Skinner.
