IRVING, Texas – Sept. 16, 2019 – HMS Holdings Corp. (Nasdaq: HMSY) today announced it has acquired VitreosHealth, a privately held company based in Plano, Texas, that offers predictive and prescriptive health insights for population risk models. Prior to the acquisition, VitreosHealth served as a key strategic partner for HMS, and most notably, as the predictive analytics engine for HMS' Elli, a risk intelligence solution that is part of the company's integrated Population Health Management (PHM) portfolio.

Elli provides both prospective and retrospective analyses to help identify high and emerging risk as early as the point of member enrollment. Seamlessly integrating with existing population health tools, Elli's timely, actionable insights on populations and individual members facilitate better care management programs. Elli monitors members on a regular basis to proactively identify risks related to medical conditions, social determinants and other factors.

"We are excited to add VitreosHealth's talent and advanced analytics expertise to the HMS family," said Bill Lucia, HMS Chairman and CEO. "Our successful partnership with VitreosHealth has evolved into today's highly strategic acquisition of best-in-class predictive analytics capabilities. We expect VitreosHealth's prescriptive health insights will further enrich our award-winning Population Health Management suite to better predict, identify and avoid preventable high-cost events."
