OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Oct. 5, 2023 — Netsmart today announced the acquisition of Netalytics, a South Carolina-based addiction treatment software and practice management company, dedicated to developing technology for substance use disorder (SUD) providers focused on opioid addiction treatment. This acquisition will further extend the Netsmart CareFabric platform by enabling interoperable data sharing between opioid treatment program (OTP) facilities and the providers that treat and coordinate other types of care for individuals with SUD.

“Now more than ever it is critical to integrate Netalytics clients’ SUD treatment and recovery facilities and their individuals receiving care within our national network of human services, post-acute care and community-based clients,” said Netsmart CEO Mike Valentine. “To achieve true integrated care and parity between behavioral and physical health, it is essential for providers to leverage technology enabling seamless exchange and integration of healthcare information, ultimately with the goal to deliver better outcomes for individuals with a substance use disorder. We look forward to working alongside the Netalytics team to equip human services providers with the tools and technology to enable them to combat the growing opioid crisis and deliver care to the nation’s most vulnerable populations.”

Netalytics was founded in 1995 by building a custom methadone software application for one clinic in Georgia and has grown by partnering with physicians and addiction specialists to develop solutions that address the unique workflows of providers serving the SUD market. Netalytics plans to enhance the Methasoft+SMART electronic health records (EHRs) with its integration into the Netsmart CareFabric platform with digitized, real-time referrals, patient health record history and alerts.

Netalytics clients will continue to experience the industry-leading support they receive today, as well as improved care delivery through additional value-added offerings such as e-prescribing, telehealth, healthcare information exchange (HIE) integration, patient engagement solutions, reimbursement automation and analytics.

“Netsmart and Netalytics have a shared vision of developing innovative and intuitive software for behavioral health treatment programs and we are thrilled to join forces,” said Netalytics CEO Mark Essex. “With the support of Netsmart, we believe we can expand the capabilities of our technology so providers can deliver individualized, whole-person care and put people on the path to recovery. Our clients will be able to rely on the same tools and support they have come to expect, with the ability to leverage solutions of the Netsmart CareFabric and benefit from our combination with one of the largest behavioral health technology providers in the market.”

Houlihan Lokey served as the exclusive financial advisor to Netalytics on this transaction.
