CareSignal Acquired by Lightbeam Health Solutions

Together, Lightbeam and CareSignal will deliver, "best-in-class population-level stratification, actionable real-time insight delivery, and clinical outcome improvement," according to a press release shared by CareSignal founder Blake Margraff.

It is deeply humbling and rewarding to have grown this company with our phenomenal team, client-partners, and investors, and I look forward to serving millions of additional patients and members in the years ahead," he said in a message posted on LinkedIn.

The “leader in end-to-end population health management solutions,” Lightbeam Health Solutions, has acquired CareSignal (formerly known as Epharmix), a St. Louis startup best known for pioneering Deviceless Remote Patient Monitoring technology.

CareSignal brings over 30 condition-specific programs, proven real-world ROI, and a suite of robust AI-based predictive models that complement Lightbeam’s sophisticated population health analytics platform. Combined with the real-time cohort generation capabilities at the core of Lightbeam, CareSignal programs covering chronic conditions, behavioral health, social determinants of health, maternal health, and additional use cases will rapidly generate scalable returns on investment for value-based providers, payers, and self-insured employers.
