Allscripts, a publicly traded healthcare IT company based in Chicago, announced on Thursday it has acquired CarePort Health, a Boston-based Techstars alum that closed a $3.8 million round of funding last year.
CarePort, which will remain in Boston as an Allscripts subsidiary, provides software that matches patients seeking post-hospital care with the high-quality and ideal options for their needs, “in an easy-to-understand and engaging format,” it has previously said. With the acquisition, CarePort’s software is being integrated into Allscripts’ CareInMotion health management platform.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“Care teams often lack access to real-time and actionable information,” Lissy Hu, founder and CEO of CarePort Health, said in a statement. CarePort’s vision of connecting post-acute and acute providers while enabling transparency to guide patient care across the continuum aligns with Allscripts’ commitment to improving population health.”
CarePort was part of the Techstars Boston Fall 2012 class. Its investors included the group that is now known as Converge Venture Partners, Twitter investor Baseline Ventures, Excelerate Health Ventures, Generator Ventures, Launch Capital, 500 Startups, local investor and entrepreneur Andy Palmer and Boston Seed Capital.
