“DataEmerge is excited to become a part of the MediQuant portfolio. We will continue to lead in cost- and time- effective data extractions while gaining the resources and technology to make sure we offer our clients the most complete solutions for their needs,” said Skinner. Mediquant will use this merger to grow their commitment to efficient data collection from multiple sources and streamline transition to single systems that improve access to all information.

Under their agreement, the merge will provide MediQuant with a complementary suite of services that makes them one of the only companies offering comprehensive in-house data extraction options. In addition, DataEmerge will continue to operate under their name and offer their services to others in the healthcare industry. CEO Cliff Skinner will stay-on with the company to provide support to current customers on the full DataEmerge product line.

MediQuant was founded in 1999 and headquartered in Ohio. DataArk, the crown jewel of the company’s product line, provides a solution to hospitals that are retiring their legacy clinical and patient accounting platforms. The data management platform ensures seamless, secure access to legacy data from a cloud-based stage. Using a process called active archiving, customers can utilize the necessary functionality of their original systems without the accompanying expense and risks. Information remains active so that data can be rapidly accessed and older records can be quickly updated. MediQuant serves almost 200 individual health systems which represent over 1,000 hospitals and physician practice clients.
