GREENWICH, CT and RALEIGH, NC — Great Point Partners’ portfolio company, Citra Health Solutions (“Citra”), a trusted provider of benefit administration technology solutions and care management services, has acquired Portland, Oregon based DataWing Software LLC (“DataWing”). Together, Citra and DataWing will provide a comprehensive suite of technology products to value-based care providers.
For over 25 years, DataWing has offered software to help Managed Service Organizations (MSOs), Independent Physician Associations (IPAs), and other healthcare providers improve efficiencies and increase profitability. DataWing’s offering integrates with claims adjudication systems (including Citra’s EZ-CAP) to create additional value-added solutions. Additionally, DataWing products help healthcare providers obtain data from payor organizations to confirm the eligibility of patients to receive reimbursement for care. The acquisition of DataWing will extend Citra’s EZ-Suite set of software technologies and augment Citra’s capitation and eligibility management product offering.
“DataWing provides Citra with a complementary technology and service offering and a team with deep domain expertise,” said Scott Sanner, CEO of Citra Health Solutions. “The acquisition will enhance and strengthen Citra’s go-to-market strategy and offer our client base additional products to help with efficiency and cost savings.”
Jerry Porter, the founder of DataWing added, “We have been friends and partners of EZ-CAP since we began our business in the early 90s. We are excited to enhance Citra’s value proposition by combining our capabilities. The future is very bright for both DataWing and Citra customers alike.”
