Huron Consulting Group To Acquire Vonlay, LLC

Huron Consulting Group Inc. (NASDAQ: HURN), a leading provider of business consulting services, today announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire the assets of Vonlay, LLC, a healthcare technology consulting firm, specializing in clinical information systems and electronic health records (EHR) implementations and optimizations.

Vonlay’s expertise in healthcare information technology (HIT), particularly Epic Systems software, expands Huron Healthcare’s capabilities empowering hospitals, health systems, and academic medical centers to improve their operations and care delivery.

“The addition of Vonlay introduces a new set of capabilities for Huron Healthcare to deliver value to hospital, health system and physician group clients,” said James H. Roth, chief executive officer and president, Huron Consulting Group. “Vonlay’s services will enhance our performance improvement and clinical transformation solutions, and will enable our clients to better realize a return on the significant investment that many of them have made in automating electronic health records.”

Vonlay offers a robust suite of HIT optimization, implementation, maintenance and staff augmentation services, including helping clients execute, upgrade, and maintain EHRs, build patient portals, convert to ICD-10, meet “meaningful use” requirements, and aggregate and analyze data.

“Huron understands that providers have significant and ongoing needs for information systems to produce high quality data accessed in real time, to provide new ways to engage patients, to enhance quality and safety, and to increase efficiency,” said Aaron Carlock, managing partner, Vonlay. “We are excited to join such an outstanding organization, with a proven track record for improving operations and transforming care.”

“Information technology is the backbone of more efficient and effective healthcare, and Vonlay is a leader in helping hospitals, health systems and physician groups make the best use of those investments,” said Gordon Mountford, executive vice president, Huron Healthcare. “The addition of Vonlay will enable Huron Healthcare to continue to bring new expertise and solutions to our clients as they transition to accountable care.”

The acquisition will result in approximately 130 Vonlay professionals joining the Huron Healthcare team. Aaron Carlock, Mike Kolpien and Farhan Ahmad will join Huron as managing directors. Vonlay, headquartered in Madison, Wis., was recently named one of Madison Magazine’s “Best Places to Work in Technology.”

The acquisition, which is subject to certain customary closing conditions, is anticipated to close in May. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. For reporting purposes, Vonlay will be included in the Huron Healthcare segment, which accounts for more than 50% of Huron’s overall revenue.
