Ingenix, a health information, technology, consulting and services company, announced that it has expanded its health outcomes measurement capabilities with the acquisition of QualityMetric Incorporated. QualityMetric helps health care companies assess health outcomes as reported by patients themselves, known as patient-reported outcomes.
This acquisition adds a new dimension to the capabilities Ingenix can offer to life sciences companies, governments, health systems, payers and consumers. Patient-reported outcomes (PROs) are an important measure of the ultimate effectiveness of health care. QualityMetric develops and maintains popular general and disease-specific health surveys for measuring patients’ own assessments of their health.
