Apixio Inc., a pioneer in Big Data analytics for healthcare, announced today that Bain Capital Ventures, the venture and growth capital affiliate of Bain Capital, along with several high-profile Silicon Valley angel investors, have invested a total of $13.5 million to acquire minority stakes in the Company.
“We are very excited about our new partnership with Bain Capital Ventures and the continued support from our current angel investors,” said Shawn Dastmalchi, CEO and Co-founder of Apixio. “The proceeds will be used to ramp up our sales and operations in support of the strong growth we are experiencing in our Risk Adjustment business. We also intend to further develop our Big Data technology and to build on our vision to provide analytic solutions that power value-based care.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Apixio,” said Jared Kesselheim, Partner at Bain Capital Ventures. “The risk adjustment process is becoming essential to an increasing portion of the payor-provider landscape, and Apixio’s technology platform has the power to deliver unprecedented risk adjustment accuracy and automation, as evidenced by the customer traction they are seeing in the market.”
The need for accurate and efficient reporting of member risk scores is on the rise due to steady growth in Medicare Advantage plan enrollment, combined with increasing audit pressure from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). In addition, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires commercial health insurance plans to maintain accurate Risk Adjustment data for their small group and individual plan members, further expanding the demand for Risk Adjustment solutions. Ultimately, as value-based payment models gain broader adoption, Risk Adjustment solutions will become the foundation for both how payment is determined and how patient care outcomes are tracked.

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors.
