New York – August 22, 2018 – Everyday Health Group, a leader in patient and provider education, announced today that it has purchased Prime Education, LLC (PRIME®), a nationally recognized medical education and outcomes research company known for its award-winning, systems-based work and extensive peer-reviewed publications in research-informed interprofessional continuing education (CE). While PRIME will be part of the Everyday Health Professional business unit, it will continue to function autonomously as a CE provider under its existing governance structure for accredited CE programs, in accordance with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) Joint Accreditation Criteria and the Standards for Commercial Support.
Kathleen Moreo, founder and CEO of PRIME, commented, “We’re thrilled to become a part of the Everyday Health Group. By combining both businesses’ relevant learning experiences with advanced data analytics, applied research, and patient and provider platforms, we will be able to advance the quality of care and outcomes, and bridge the necessary link between patients and their healthcare teams. Through our applied synergies, data assets, and combined expertise, Everyday Health and PRIME plan to accelerate this linkage, going beyond education and engagement to quantifiably empower patients, teams, and entire health ecosystems to achieve their goals.”
“Everyday Health’s acquisition of PRIME creates a robust Continuing Education platform for the healthcare team and advances the possibilities in the health care research and education space,” stated Jeff Blatt, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Everyday Health Professional. “PRIME’s quality improvement work has consistently supported health care systems and communities across federal, payer, provider and academic settings to engineer new, sustainable care coordination modalities that advance behavior change and improve patient outcomes. PRIME has invented, tested, and proven tethered patient and provider learning solutions that are deeply aligned with Everyday Health’s patient and physician engagement goals. We are pleased to welcome PRIME into the Everyday Health Group.”
The PRIME continuing education team, including experts in educational design, the analysis of professional planning gaps and needs, and outcomes measurement, and other key CE leadership and personnel will continue to manage all business operations from PRIME’s headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
