BACTES Rebrands as Sharecare Health Data Services

ATLANTA, Oct. 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sharecare, the digital health company that helps people manage all their health in one place, today announced that BACTES Imaging Solutions, which the company acquired in July 2013, is rebranding as Sharecare Health Data Services. A premier provider of secure electronic exchange, delivery and integration of protected health information (PHI), Sharecare Health Data Services’ capabilities include release of information (ROI), electronic health record (EHR) chart indexing, audit and chart review, disability and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) form processing, and billing-office workflow tools and services.

“In order to achieve our goal of putting all your health in one place, there needed to be an easier way for people to obtain their medical records while upholding the latest compliance, security and privacy standards,” said Jeff Arnold, chairman and CEO of Sharecare. “BACTES long ago set the industry standard for quality in the secure delivery of PHI for hospitals and physician practices, and with Sharecare Health Data Services, we are committed to bringing that same frictionless service to all of Sharecare’s users as we help each person regain control of their own health.”

BACTES Imaging Solutions was founded in 1991 on the principle that every person in the company would always treat every medical record as if it were their own. Now, as Sharecare Health Data Services, the division of Sharecare aims to help organizations become more profitable and productive by adhering to the latest compliance standards and providing unmatched multi-step quality control processes.

“Four years ago, BACTES and Sharecare acted on our shared vision that technology can enable customers to access health information more securely and efficiently,” said Jim Bailey, president of Sharecare Health Data Services. “Joining the Sharecare team enabled us to expand our reach and technology development, and we’re very excited about the enhanced solutions we will provide to our customers as Sharecare Health Data Services.”

Starting today, customers will see the new identity of Sharecare Health Data Services reflected in all of its communications. Existing BACTES customers can get more information about Sharecare’s comprehensive digital health platform and services through their local Sharecare Health Data Services representative. Additionally, this week, attendees at MGMA 2017 Annual Conference can learn more about Sharecare Health Data Services at booth #903; and those attending the 2017 AHIMA Convention & Exhibit can find Sharecare Health Data Services at booth #817.
