  • Atos acquires Pursuit Healthcare Advisors, Conduent's Healthcare Provider Consulting business and Conduent's Breakaway Group business
  • These companies bring recognized industry expertise within healthcare consulting to enable Atos to expand its presence in the fast-growing US digital health IT market

Paris (France), Irving, TX (USA), October 4, 2017 - Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, today announces that it has closed the acquisition of the following healthcare consulting companies: Pursuit Healthcare Advisors, Conduent's Healthcare Provider Consulting and Conduent's Breakaway Group. Following on from the acquisition of Anthelio Healthcare Solutions in 2016, these acquisitions will allow Atos to play a leading role in the fast-growing U.S. healthcare IT market, to support provider groups and payers as they look to optimize clinical and financial performance and address the increasing demands of new government regulations.

The newly acquired companies bring recognized industry expertise within healthcare consulting including technology adoption, program and project management; Electronic Health Record (EHR) implementation and optimization capabilities, and population health and analytics expertise. This will further strengthen the scale and scope of Atos' healthcare-focused services in its Business & Platform Solutions division.

Further to the acquisitions, the Atos Group will generate more than 1 billion euros revenue on annual basis in the healthcare sector.

Approximately 400 healthcare consultants will join the Group. Thanks to these new capabilities Atos will help its clients in North America to:

  • drive technology adoption,
  • optimize financial performance,
  • improve the quality and speed of EHR implementations,
  • reduce the cost of care through high-value population health management capabilities,
  • address the demands of new government regulations for providers and payers (e.g. ICD-11, payment bundling, MACRA).

 "Atos is committed to healthcare on a global scale. The expansion of our North American healthcare practice is a priority for Atos. We want to help healthcare organizations expand and change their business models while also creating a unique position for Atos to take advantage of the projected high-growth in the healthcare IT market. We are excited to welcome Pursuit Healthcare Advisors, Conduent's Healthcare Provider Consulting and Breakaway Group businesses to the Atos family," said Michel-Alain Proch, Group Senior Executive Vice President and CEO North American Operations, Atos.

Darin LeGrange, Managing Director North America Healthcare, Atos said, "Through these acquisitions we now have strengthened our end-to-end capabilities, from optimizing and securing the technology foundation to leveraging financial and clinical data, in order to help our customers manage their businesses while transitioning to new healthcare models such as value-based care."
