Jersey City, N.J. - ISO, a Jersey City, N.J., provider of data, analytics and decision-support solutions, is extending its product set and focus to the healthcare industry with its plans to acquire the assets of Urix, a Cheshire, Conn., provider of healthcare analytics and employer reporting solutions. Terms were not disclosed. The Urix product set includes Web-based business solutions that enable health insurers, national brokerage firms and large employers to derive strategies to improve the quality of health care while lowering the cost of delivery. Urix is a developer of Web-based healthcare analytic solutions that are scalable and cost-effective, the companies report. ISO entered the healthcare sector in 2004 with the purchase of Boston-based DxCG, a company widely recognized as a world leader in predictive modeling software solutions. ISO will form a single company containing the Urix and DxCG assets doing business under the Urix brand name. Urix CEO John Farrell will serve as president of the combined entity; Michael Coyne will serve as COO. "With so many synergies between the Urix business intelligence solutions and DxCG predictive modeling capabilities, it makes sense to combine our assets and approach the market with a unified set of solutions," said Michael Coyne, head of DxCG. "Our teams will create new and, in many cases, unique solutions by working together closely," continued Coyne.  ISO's chairman, president and chief executive officer, Frank Coyne, cited ISO's plans to combine Urix and ISO's DxCG unit as "an excellent opportunity for ISO to expand its presence in the healthcare business intelligence market by leveraging complementary strengths in both companies' product lines. We expect the new entity to lead the market with a host of solutions designed to improve the quality and efficiency of our nation's healthcare system," said ISO's CEO.  Source: ISO
