IRVING, Texas, March 24, 2014 – Lightbeam Health Solutions is pleased to announce a strategic alliance with Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM). Ingram Micro will offer the advanced Lightbeam Health platform to its growing number of U.S. channel partners. The Lightbeam solution will help Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), insurance payers, health systems, large provider groups, and community access hospitals transition from traditional Fee For Service to Value Based Reimbursement programs.
Ingram Micro’s solution providers will also provide IT infrastructure and support to physicians and community caregivers. The Lightbeam Health platform is an end-to-end suite of solutions that utilize a proprietary enterprise data warehouse to aggregate real-time clinical and claims data from disparate sources and deliver it to providers at the point of care. The platform offers clinical and financial analytics, in addition to care coordination, patient engagement, and physician engagement tools. Lightbeam will be aligning its solutions and technology foundation on the Dell suite of services and products. With technology migrating to the cloud, and with Lightbeam’s software and infrastructure offered as a consolidated solution, it was critical for Lightbeam to have a technology partner with the depth and investment Dell had made in this area.
“We are very happy to join forces with Ingram Micro and offer our solutions to their worldwide client base,” said Jerry Shultz, President of Lightbeam Health. “Ingram Micro’s sophisticated go-to-market approach and healthcare program are an ideal match to help us deliver and scale our integrated platform. We look forward to providing Ingram Micro’s channel partners with the solutions necessary to improve care and increase efficiency in an increasingly complex healthcare landscape.”
“The healthcare marketplace represents a growing sales and services opportunity for channel partners with the right skills, expertise and targeted solutions portfolio,” says Michael Humke, executive director, Vertical Markets and Healthcare, Ingram Micro U.S. “We are pleased to offer the Lightbeam Health platform to our healthcare portfolio of products, solutions and services.”
