Quintiles Completes Acquisition of Encore Health Resources

The contract research organization Quintiles has completed the acquisition of Encore Health Resources, a provider of health-information analytics and technology consulting services for customer’s strategy, advisory, implementation, process-redesign, optimization, analytics and performance-improvement initiatives.

Now known as “Encore, A Quintiles Company,” Encore will operate as part of Quintiles' Integrated Healthcare Services segment. Quintiles had announced the acquisition in May 2014.

Founded in 2009, Encore has more than 300 employees located throughout North America, including approximately 250 consultants. Its primary business is focused on implementation and advisory services around electronic health records (EHR). The addition of these capabilities will enhance Quintiles' EHR expertise, which is becoming increasingly important as biopharmaceutical customers, payers and providers focus on measuring outcomes based on real-world performance in terms of clinical effectiveness and value, according to Quintiles.
