Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc. Announces Acquisition of Value-Based Care Technology Platform Orma Health

Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc. | January 28, 2022

Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc. ("ApolloMed," and together with its subsidiaries and affiliated entities, the "Company"), a leading physician-centric, technology-powered healthcare company focused on enabling providers in the successful delivery of value-based care, today announced that it has acquired 100% of the fully diluted capitalization of Orma Health, Inc., and Provider Growth Solutions LLC (together, "Orma Health") in accordance with an agreement between ApolloMed, Orma Health and certain equity holders of Orma Health.

Founded in 2020, Orma Health has helped many physician groups transition to and succeed in the delivery of value-based care, enabling them to focus on their passion—caring for patients. Orma Health's real-time Clinical AI platform ingests data from multiple sources and utilizes advanced risk-stratification models to identify patients for various clinical programs, including remote patient monitoring ("RPM"), mental health support, chronic disease management, and more. Its clinical platform is also deeply integrated with Orma Health's proprietary RPM ecosystem, which consists of smart health devices and a suite of technology tools to help manage patients' health. Through its suite of AI-driven solutions, Orma Health currently serves over 4,000 aligned Medicare beneficiaries in a Direct Contracting Entity ("DCE") and over 2,500 patients in California, Nevada, Arizona and Texas through its RPM platform.

"We are excited about integrating Orma Health's business and technological capabilities with those of ApolloMed, tapping their leadership team's experience in working with DCEs and helping risk-bearing provider groups in the delivery of value-based care as we augment our capabilities to support providers in various Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Innovation Models. We believe this acquisition will further differentiate ApolloMed's technology platform and analytic capabilities while adding complementary lines of business to our operations that serve as business development opportunities."

Brandon Sim, Co-Chief Executive Officer of ApolloMed

Through leveraging its proprietary technology platform and extensive value-based care experience, ApolloMed has historically demonstrated tremendous success participating in Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services ("CMS") Innovation Models. The acquisition of Orma Health serves to accelerate ApolloMed's product roadmap in developing an end-to-end technology platform that enables providers to succeed in all CMS Innovation Models, including DCE. Orma Health's real-time Clinical AI and RPM technologies will also be integrated into ApolloMed's existing solutions for its managed care populations and will further enhance ApolloMed's technology and analytics offering to its 1.2 million Medicare Advantage, Managed Medicaid, Commercial, and ACA members nationwide. This will allow ApolloMed providers to receive an additional layer of real-time, actionable insights and continue delivering high-quality care to their patients, tailored to their membership populations. As ApolloMed looks to expand its membership and enter new geographies, there are significant business development opportunities in deepening Orma Health's relationships with existing RPM providers and patients and extending that to ApolloMed's managed care and CMS Innovation Model solutions and offerings.

As part of the acquisition, Neil Ahuja, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Orma Health, will join ApolloMed as President, Provider Solutions and spearhead continued efforts to enable physicians to transition to value-based care models successfully. Yubin Park, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Orma Health, will join ApolloMed as Chief Analytics Officer and lead the continued development and integration of Orma Health's AI-driven provider enablement technology into ApolloMed's technology platform.

Mr. Ahuja commented, "We are pleased to be joining ApolloMed, bringing Orma Health's core competencies in developing innovative healthcare technologies that drive tangible outcomes for providers and their patients. ApolloMed has been a leading healthcare management company with a long history of successfully and profitably empowering physicians in the delivery of value-based care, making it the perfect partner for us. We look forward to contributing our expertise to expanding ApolloMed's MSO capabilities and the potential future opportunities that lie ahead."

Mr. Park added, "I am excited to begin working closely with the ApolloMed team on integrating Orma Health's technologies with that of ApolloMed. At Orma Health, we, like ApolloMed, believe that data is king. The information we gather and analyze about our members over the years is critical to our ability to deliver the best healthcare experience and outcomes for patients. We are thrilled that Orma Health is now a part of ApolloMed's worthy mission of empowering providers in delivering high-quality care and improved outcomes for its members."

According to the terms of the agreement, a portion of the purchase price was paid in cash to the equity holders of Orma Health upon the closing of the transaction, another portion was paid in ApolloMed stock to the equity holders of Orma Health upon the closing of the transaction, and the remainder of the purchase price is to be paid in a combination of cash and stock to the equity holders contingent upon Orma Health achieving certain operational milestones over the 18 months after the closing. The Company will fund the transaction from cash on hand and shares of ApolloMed stock.

Caregility Unveils Multiple AI-Enhanced Hybrid Care Solutions that Harness the Power of Caregility Cloud™ Telehealth Platform

Businesswire | April 19, 2023

Caregility, an enterprise telehealth leader dedicated to connecting care for patients and clinicians everywhere, today announced a new portfolio of AI-enhanced hybrid care solutions built on Caregility Cloud™, its Best in KLAS virtual care platform (non-EMR). The enhancements reduce technology investment risks for hospitals and health systems by offering the flexibility to choose those health AI applications that are the best fit for their environment and needs without creating more IT silos that could hamper workflow and congest networks. Interest in hybrid care models that blend in-person care with virtual encounters has increased significantly as health systems look to optimize patient care delivery amid workforce shortages. Caregility Cloud™ is a robust telehealth foundation that helps modernize care delivery with advanced video and audio streaming technologies. Transformative clinical programs built on the platform include virtual nursing, tele-ICU, continuous patient observation, and virtual visits. The AI enhancements announced today unlock even more value for overburdened caregivers and administrative teams struggling to keep up with rising costs and increased demand. A computer vision application analyzes live video streams of patients and their environment to detect movement and changes that could lead to adverse events such as falls or self-harm. A contactless monitoring system continuously captures patient vital signs, detecting variations in heart rate, breathing patterns, and movement that could be indicative of physiological events like awakening from sleep or an induced coma. An ambient clinical intelligence algorithm generates documentation from live clinician and patient conversations for the patient’s electronic health record. “Integrating artificial intelligence technologies with our leading virtual care platform advances care delivery and empowers the clinicians we serve to focus on patient care,” states Mike Brandofino, President and COO at Caregility. “AI development in healthcare is in the beginning stages. Our customers are asking us for options that they can implement now but won’t box them into an investment that might quickly become obsolete. By harnessing the power of Caregility Cloud™ as the platform of choice, we provide the resilient virtual care infrastructure and endpoints while our business partners focus on AI advancement.” “Combining virtual care solutions and AI technology yields tremendous potential to enhance and improve a variety of clinical workflows in acute care settings,” said Pete McLain, Chief Strategy Officer at Caregility. “Artificial intelligence has the potential to enhance and augment – not replace – care teams, helping them save time, capture more meaningful patient data, and support clinical decisions and interventions that lead to better care and improved patient outcomes.” The Caregility Cloud™ Ecosystem is a growing network of Caregility business partners brought together for better healthcare. The new AI innovators joining the ecosystem include Abridge, Ouva, and Xandar Kardian, who are committed to integrating their transformative AI-enhanced hybrid care solutions with the Best in KLAS virtual care platform. Abridge, a leader in the clinical adaptation of generative AI, introduces ambient clinical intelligence for Caregility Cloud™, capturing relevant medical documentation from clinical conversations with patients in near real-time. Ouva, a pioneer in the clinical application of computer vision, brings AI-powered continuous patient and patient room observation to Caregility Cloud™ adopters, tracking patient and visitor movement to alert care teams to potential patient safety concerns such as falls, elopement, or self-harm. The Ouva solution also helps optimize workforce efficiency, with bedside shift planning and bed turnover processes. Xandar Kardian, an innovator in radar-based contactless patient monitoring, adds continuous vital sign and motion capture to Caregility Cloud™, delivering real-time data on patients’ resting heart rate, respiratory rate, and motion patterns to remote clinical teams to assess trends and meaningful changes in patient conditions. The Caregility Cloud™ virtual care platform also leverages operational AI to remotely monitor telehealth endpoint systems and initiate self-healing commands if equipment is not performing properly, enabling health systems to manage large telehealth system deployments at scale and across multiple sites. About Caregility Caregility Corporation is dedicated to connecting patients and clinicians everywhere with its Caregility Cloud™ virtual care platform. Awarded the Best in KLAS Virtual Care Platform (non-EMR) in 2021, 2022, and 2023, Caregility Cloud™ powers a purpose-built ecosystem of enterprise telehealth solutions across the care continuum. Caregility provides secure, reliable, and HIPAA-compliant audio and video communication designed for any device and clinical workflow, in both acute and ambulatory settings.
