ATLANTA, Nov 14, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) --
CareLike LLC, an affiliate of HealthLink Dimensions(R) LLC, has acquired the assets of Seattle-based SNAPforSeniors, Inc. (SNAP), including the technology and comprehensive healthcare services provider database. CareLike is a newly formed data and technology company providing access to robust information on more than 250,000 healthcare entities segmented into 27 categories of care providers, including long term care, outpatient facilities, home care, transportation, diabetes care and other local community-based services that support patient transitional or extended care needs.
CareLike's data sets allow consumers and professionals to make more informed healthcare decisions by having quick and easy access to an objective and updated set of local community resource records in all 50 states. The CareLike data is available to clients through a range of flexible web offerings from branded websites, file extracts or access through an API. Many clients integrate CareLike's data into their existing applications (i.e., CRM, provider network management, case/condition management) for improved information and referrals to the families they serve. Currently, CareLike's data management services are utilized by large healthcare insurance plans, commercial websites, hospitals/integrated delivery systems and patient advocacy organizations to assist their users to source and screen the services they require. Providers who want to reach targeted professional users and qualified consumers can leverage CareLike's data distribution network of licensees with affordable advertising programs.
"The formation of CareLike and acquisition of the data and technology assets from SNAPforSeniors was an ideal complement to HealthLink Dimensions' physician and allied health data sets," says Kevin Guthrie, vice president and general manager of HealthLink Dimensions and who will also have oversight of CareLike. "Our combined commitment to quality data can deliver more value to existing and future clients who were trying to maintain their own databases." Guthrie adds, "As a national data leader, we are entering 2013 better positioned to respond to the market's need for cost effective data solutions that support transitions of care."
