Civica integrates VisionWare – announces enhanced capabilities in the US healthcare and state and local government markets

Full integration coincides with launch of the latest version of leading MDM technology solution, MultiVue

Civica, the market leader in business-critical software, digital solutions and managed services for the public sector and regulated markets, has strengthened its position in the local government and healthcare markets with the re-branding of the former VisionWare business, following its acquisition in May 2018.

For the past 15 years, VisionWare has delivered master data management (MDM) and enterprise master patient index (EMPI) solutions to hospitals and health systems, payers and state and local government organizations, delivering a single view and one source of truth for patients and citizens to drive improved, high quality services.

This announcement coincides with the launch of the latest version of its flagship MDM and EMPI solution, MultiVue. The technology has been further enhanced with the addition of a separate matching engine designed entirely around discovering relationships between people, properties and organizations. MultiVue has also been enhanced to reference data capabilities, cleansing and enforcement, empowering customers with even more MDM options and flexibility.

The combination of VisionWare and Civica provides a stronger complementary capability to bring added value to customers across state and local government and healthcare. This will help organizations extract maximum business value from data, with the opportunity to expand this further through digital services, cloud software, data analytics and insight and machine learning.

The integration further enhances Civica’s complementary digital capability, with an established record of providing digital and cloud-based solutions as a trusted partner for more than 1,000 organizations.

Chris Owen, Divisional Managing Director, Digital and Data Solutions at Civica commented: “Emerging technologies are leading to a massive shift in healthcare and government, and clean, high-quality data is crucial for organizations to embrace the upcoming wave of predictive analytics, AI and machine learning. The combination of Civica and VisionWare is an exciting development for our customers, partners and employees, giving us enhanced capability to deliver even greater value to healthcare and state and local government organizations.”

The full integration adds a number of prominent US customers to Civica’s portfolio, alongside its UK customer base; including the State of Alaska, Mecklenburg County, digital imaging systems and IT solution provider, AGFA and Premera Blue Cross, the largest health plan in the Pacific Northwest. Civica now works with more than 900 government organizations and 500 healthcare entities around the world, including in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.
