Firm’s Digital Health Group Leads Sale Process of Behavioral Health Software and AI Vendor to Leading PE-backed Strategic
NEW YORK, December 03, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--D.A. Davidson & Co. announced today that it has served as exclusive financial advisor to Remarkable Health in its sale to Netsmart, a leading provider of healthcare software solutions and services to help providers deliver whole-person, value-based care.
Remarkable Health is a software company focused on providing behavioral health, substance abuse, and human service organizations with the technology they need to create efficiencies and streamlined user experiences so clinicians can focus on positive client outcomes rather than administrative obstacles. Remarkable offers CT|One®, a purpose built electronic health record (EHR) platform and Bells, the industry’s first virtual clinical documentation assistant powered by AI and natural language processing. The Bells solution has proven to ease the documentation burden and reduce documentation time by 50% and works as a companion to the EHR experience.
"The Behavioral Health industry has many positive tailwinds," said Greg Hartlein, a partner in D.A. Davidson’s Technology Investment Banking Group. "The destigmatization of treatment, focus on ‘Whole Person Health’ by payors and health plans, and new afflictions caused by the pandemic have resulted in unprecedented demand for services. At the same time, the industry is undergoing a massive labor shortage and a shift to value-based care. Providers need technology, such as Remarkable Health’s AI solution, Bells, to do more with less, retain talent, and submit medically accurate documentation more quickly. We were thrilled to partner with Pete and team on this important transaction and are excited to watch the next evolution of Bells with Netsmart."
The combination between Netsmart and Remarkable Health will provide clients of both companies with additional offerings and improved clinician experiences. The partnership will enhance providers’ digital workflows and clinical staff productivity using AI innovations, and create a new industry standard for human services and post-acute care.
"D.A. Davidson ran an efficient and competitive process," said Peter Flick, CEO of Remarkable Health. "Their market and industry knowledge led to an optimal transaction, resulting in a terrific outcome for shareholders, our clients, and employees. It was a great partnership with Greg and his team."
D.A. Davidson’s technology investment banking practice is one of the most active middle market groups in the United States, having advised on over 50 advisory and public equity transactions representing more than $20 billion in value since January 2021.
