FRISCO, Texas & NASHVILLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#healthcaresoftware–Valify, the leading healthcare cost management company exclusively
dedicated to controlling purchased services expense, announced today
that it has acquired Lucro Solutions, Inc., a Nashville-based digital
platform for health systems to compare and select vendors.

“We are excited to integrate Lucro’s platform which aligns with and
fortifies Valify’s existing features. Lucro has built an innovative,
easy-to-use technology platform that automates how all buyers across a
healthcare system evaluate and select their vendor partners,” said Chris
Heckler, Chief Executive Officer of Valify. “This transaction extends
and enhances our ability to operate a marketplace, enabling our
healthcare system customers to effortlessly collaborate with vendors,
saving time and increasing bandwidth to realize additional cost savings
through Valify’s technology.”

Valify offers healthcare systems a suite of technology and services that
targets, prioritizes, and manages areas for cost reduction through spend
visibility, benchmark comparisons, and advisory services. Lucro operates
a marketplace platform, applying an innovative approach to collaboration
among buyers and sellers. The integration of Lucro into Valify’s digital
RFP and market share technology reinforces powerful health system and
vendor communication tools and adds robust features to further
accelerate the sourcing process.

“Combining Valify’s visibility and insights with Lucro’s capabilities
gives vendors greater visibility and more partnership opportunities that
fulfill a healthcare provider’s need for balancing cost and quality,”
said Cash Forshee, Founder and Senior Vice President of Lucro.

“The Valify analytics and benchmarking platform already plays an
integral role in identifying and prioritizing savings opportunities
across a healthcare system,” said Les Popiolek, Chief Operating Officer
of Valify. “As pressure continues to increase on their operating
margins, more healthcare providers are focusing their cost reduction
lens on indirect spend. Integrating Lucro’s technology will enable
health systems to engage more internal and external stakeholders,
enabling them to take on more savings initiatives while better
supporting the clinical and operational needs of departments and service
lines across their organizations.”
