Seeks to leverage core data platform in its Cancer Information Data Trust

Cancer informatics and digital pathology workflow company Inspirata Inc. has acquired Redmond, Wash.-based Caradigm from GE Healthcare.

Caradigm started as a joint venture between Microsoft and GE Healthcare in 2012, but GE Healthcare bought out Microsoft’s stake in the company in 2016. Last fall healthcare IT firm Imprivata purchased Caradigm's identity and access management solutions. 

The company’s Caradigm Intelligence Platform and population health management software portfolio spans data control; healthcare analytics; and care coordination and engagement across integrated delivery networks, accountable care organizations, clinically integrated networks, academic medical centers and community hospital networks.

The platform aggregates data across clinical, social, operational and financial sources from disparate source systems – electronic health records, billing systems, payers, claims, pharmacy systems, labs and HIEs. Caradigm also provides a suite of applications for improving the patient experience of care, improving the health of populations and reducing the per capita cost of healthcare.

Tampa, Fla.-based Inspirata provides oncology diagnostics workflow solutions that span digital pathology; diagnostic and predictive assays; and precision medicine. It also offers cancer informatics workflows that, in combination with its natural language processing and artificial intelligence algorithms structures unstructured case files and clinician notes to provide key insights for clinical and operational activities as well as cancer reporting.

“Caradigm has built a highly regarded, industry-proven big data health analytics platform,” says Inspirata CEO Satish Sanan, in a prepared statement. “Our goal is to leverage the core strengths of this platform to accelerate our Cancer Information Data Trust (CIDT) development. The CIDT will address key trends in oncology care, providing important new insights for clinicians, researchers, drug discovery and cancer center operations. In addition to this, Caradigm’s strong population health product set and experienced team will have Inspirata’s specialized focus and attention to promote long-term sustainability, growth and innovation as we redouble our focus on delivering superior value to all customers.”
