Press Ganey, a provider of patient experience measurement that is based in Boston, said Tuesday that it had acquired Bivarus.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

The company did not respond to requests for additional information.

Bivarus CEO Dave Levin, a Triangle life science marketing veteran, called the news “exciting.” He described Press Ganey as a “patient experience measurement, performance analytics and strategic advisory solutions for health care organizations across the continuum of care.”

Contacted by WRAL TechWire, Levin declined to comment about various aspects of the acquisition such as his role, the impact on local employees, and why the firm was sold. Levin referred to TechWire to Press Ganey, which did not respond to an email.

“Bivarus shares Press Ganey’s passion for leveraging direct feedback from patients, consumers and caregivers to improve the quality and delivery of care,” Levin noted in the deal announcement. “We are proud to join Press Ganey in its mission to redefine how health care organizations capture and operationalize patient and employee-generated insights to transform the care experience and create continuous, sustained improvement.”

Hatteras Ventures led the 2017 funding round for Bivarus, which launched in 2014.

Levin brought plenty of experience to his Bivarus CEO role, having worked at Clinipace Worldwide, etrial and MercuryMD among other firms in a career dating back to 2001.

“The addition of Bivarus’ capabilities to Press Ganey’s portfolio of solutions will provide another innovative approach for Press Ganey clients to understand patient and caregiver needs and generate deep data and relevant insights across the patient journey,” said Press Ganey CEO Patrick Ryan.
