Peloton Equity partners with Zaffre Investments and existing investors to provide growth capital for EHR Data Aggregation and Analytics technology
BURLINGTON, Massachusetts (April 14, 2015) – Arcadia Healthcare Solutions (“Arcadia” or the “Company”) announced today that Peloton Equity, LLC (“Peloton”), a newly-formed healthcare focused private equity firm, Zaffre Investments, LLC, and existing investors have invested $13 million growth capital in the Company. Founded in 2002, Arcadia is a leading electronic health record (“EHR”) data aggregation and analytics technology company with a focus on serving ambulatory networks affiliated with large payer and provider organizations, including health plans, accountable care organizations (“ACOs”), integrated delivery networks (“IDNs”), and large physician groups, among others. Arcadia’s technology and services enable its customers to implement and optimize an EHR platform, acquire, integrate, and report clinical data from the EHR and health insurance claims to transform physician practices based on the insight gained from that data. This suite of solutions empowers ambulatory networks to become data-driven organizations, leading to efficient population health management and success operating within both fee-for-service and value-based care payment models. Arcadia is led by CEO Sean Carroll, a longtime executive with over 25 years of experience in the health IT industry.
“We are very excited to work with Peloton and Zaffre as we prepare for our next phase of growth. I have known and worked with Peloton’s partners for over 10 years, and they have substantial experience in building market leading healthcare companies,” said Carroll. “Further, a strategic investment by Zaffre is another validation of our relevance in the market and the importance of the core competencies Arcadia has built.”
This is the second investment by Peloton since its launch in August of 2014. “We believe Sean and his team are building a market leading company that helps solve a rising and acute industry challenge,” said Carlos Ferrer, a founding principal at Peloton. “Arcadia’s analytics software and technology-enabled services allow physician networks to deliver better care at a lower cost.”
“The Arcadia investment aligns well with Zaffre’s focus on investing in the future of quality health care,” added Steve Agular, Managing Director at Zaffre Investments. “We understand the opportunity in using high quality EHR Data to transform health care and believe that Arcadia is uniquely positioned to help health plans and providers in achieving that goal.”
The $13MM investment by Peloton, Zaffre, and existing investors is incremental to capital invested previously by existing shareholders, including Ferrer Freeman & Company, and provides the financial foundation for the Company to add to its suite of technology products, including the core Arcadia Analytics and EHR Connect platforms, accelerate sales and marketing efforts, and add executive talent. Arcadia knows that the healthcare industry is transitioning from a volume-based, fee-for-service payment model, to a value-based care payment model and that physicians and other healthcare professionals are critical in driving this significant industry transformation. As such, there is a substantial opportunity for trusted partners such as Arcadia to facilitate the ambulatory network’s need for high quality, actionable data and provide practice transformation solutions to implement the insights gained from this data to drive better patient outcomes.
