Elmwood Park-based ELLKAY acquires Legal Easy

ELLKAY LLC, an Elmwood Park-based health care connectivity solutions provider, announced Thursday it has acquired the assets of Tampa, Florida-based Legal Easy Inc.

Under the deal, ELLKAY will expand its health care footprint and help providers achieve a more cost-effective approach to promoting interoperability and better access to patient data.

“Between value-based care, financial incentives, and legislative measures, providers are increasingly trying to figure out how to achieve meaningful interoperability,” Lior Hod, president, ELLKAY, said. “We’re thrilled to welcome X-Link to our portfolio as one more step towards eliminating the complex information barriers that exist in healthcare, both clinical and financial, minimizing provider risk, and helping patients receive the best care possible.”

ELLKAY said it will also be acquiring Legal Easy’s X-Link solution, which integrates clinical and practice management systems and services.

“ELLKAY is the only HIT company that works seamlessly with all verticals in healthcare – including payers, hospitals, physician practices, labs and vendors. Our footprint and expertise, paired with our vendor agnostic approach, enable a stronger and more cost-effective level of interface development, data exchange, and interoperability. We take great pride in helping the healthcare market with its data connectivity challenges,” Hod said.

Financial terms were not disclosed.
