SAN FRANCISCO--()--NantHealth, today announced that their CEO and Founder Patrick Soon-Shiong, MD, will be presenting at the 34th Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco on Monday, January 11, 2016 at 8 a.m. Pacific Time.

“The acquisition of NaviNet fits the vision, mission and strategic goals of NantHealth”

Under the leadership of Dr. Soon-Shiong and a seasoned management team, NantHealth is transforming health care by providing high-speed, secure, cloud-based information technology that uniquely combines genomic science and big data. Over the past decade, his vision has been to revolutionize the treatment of cancer and other disease states by connecting a patient's health data and individual genetic information at the point of care to precisely guide clinician decision making.

"The acquisition of NaviNet fits the vision, mission and strategic goals of NantHealth,” said Dr. Soon-Shiong. “This transaction completes our 10-year journey to introduce a new category of information technology into our complex healthcare ecosystem with a single sign-on, seamless, cloud-based, secure adaptive learning system for patients, payers, and providers.

“The reason we've acquired NaviNet is not only for its current capabilities, which are substantial. NaviNet has an enormous footprint of 450,000 active providers with access to more than 450 commercial and government health plans, strong payer relationships, and product pipeline of payer-provider solutions that help NantHealth cover almost 100 million lives. While what NaviNet has accomplished is truly impressive, this acquisition brings NantHealth an opportunity to build a truly bidirectional communication tool for our genomic and clinical information technology solutions, and transform the way healthcare is provided today.”
