With the purchase, the specialty pharmacy also appointed 8th Day Software founder and chief executive officer Dave Loschinskey as Diplomat’s chief information officer. Loschinskey has served as CEO of 8th Day since launching the firm in 2013.
The acquisition calls for 8th Day Software, based in Cordova, Tenn., to operate under Diplomat subsidiary Envoy Health Management LLC.
Diplomat noted that 8th Day will expand Envoy Health’s service offerings for health care partners to include IT outsourcing, consulting and product development.
“In an interoperable world, technology delivers comprehensive insight and sustainable value for patients and health care partners,” Jennifer Cretu, senior vice president of pharma services and marketing at Diplomat, said in a statement.
8th Day Software is experienced in building technologies for patient engagement, reporting, hub management and payer services, among other capabilities, according to Diplomat.
