As per reports, Walgreen Boots Alliance (WBA) is considering a deal to acquire Arlington, Virginia-based, Evolent Health Inc., the healthcare group. Evolent has a platform that helps providers like hospitals and doctors manage their costs. It also works on behalf of health insurers and assists to get approvals, cut costs and provide guidance to doctors on optimal ways to treat patients.
A deal with Evolent will help Walgreens to diversify away from the traditional retail pharmacy business by giving exposure to a technology-enabled platform and relationships with commercial insurers and the government. Representatives for Walgreens and Evolent refused to comment on the matter.
Walgreen Boots Alliance (WBA) is a pharmacy-led, health and well-being enterprise with a long history of trusted healthcare services, community pharmacy care, and pharmaceutical wholesaling dates.
