Symplr Completes Acquisition of Halo Health

symplr®, a leader in enterprise healthcare operations including governance, risk management, and compliance (“GRC”) SaaS solutions, backed by Clearlake Capital Group, L.P. (together with its affiliates, “Clearlake”) and Charlesbank Capital Partners (together with its affiliates, “Charlesbank”), announced today that it has completed its acquisition of Halo Health. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The acquisition of Halo Health, a provider of clinical communications and collaboration SaaS solutions, strengthens symplr’s growing software portfolio that drives efficiencies in healthcare operations and better patient outcomes. Halo Health’s modern approach to digital communication facilitates the rapid exchange of information, streamlines workflows, and improves patient safety.

“We are honored to welcome Halo Health to the symplr team and look forward to working together to advance our mission to provide healthcare organizations with the tools and resources they need to optimize operations,” said BJ Schaknowski, CEO of symplr.

Founded by clinicians, for clinicians, Halo Health helps healthcare organizations standardize and streamline clinical communication and workflows, consolidate technology, and connect their clinical community. The Halo clinical communications and collaboration SaaS platform is a cost-effective, cloud-based system that unifies all communication channels (e.g., secure messaging, video, voice, alerts) and enables role-based collaboration, ensuring the right message gets to the right person, role, or team at the right time.

Halo Health also bolsters symplr’s expanding portfolio of workforce and talent management software solutions through the addition of on-call scheduling. On-call scheduling provides easy management of schedules and on-call status changes in real-time and automates role-based communication. The acquisition of Halo Health marks another important milestone for symplr, demonstrating its commitment to meeting the needs of healthcare systems nationwide.

The acquisition of Halo Health represents symplr’s 14th acquisition in the past six years, and its ninth under sponsorship from Clearlake since November 2018.
