Health insurer Anthem Inc. disclosed on Wednesday plans to acquire myNexus Inc., a home-based nursing management company, for an undisclosed amount from an investor group led by New York City-based private equity firm WindRose Health Investors.
myNexus’ digital platform for providers relies on analytics and 250 clinicians to manage home care for 1.7 million Medicare Advantage members across 20 states. Additionally, the company has a network of high-performing home healthcare providers and nurse agencies.
“Bringing the right level of whole person care into the home [improves] outcomes, reduces readmissions and improves members’ and their family’s experience of wellbeing,” noted Prakash Patel, M.D., president, Anthem Diversified Business Group.
Anthem, the largest for-profit managed healthcare company in the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, expects to close the deal during the second quarter of 2021.
