Digital Reasoning, a leader in cognitive computing technology, has acquired Nashville-based Shareable, a health care technology provider which offers a mobile clinical documentation platform. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, Shareable is a health care technology solution provider offering a mobile clinical documentation platform for structured and unstructured data capture and exchange.

Digital health is a strategic market for Digital Reasoning as we pursue our mission to use cognitive computing to create a better world,” and also added this: “There’s a tremendous demand for disruptive technology in health care to optimize care, improve research, and find waste and fraud.

I am proud to welcome the Shareable team, and excited about Hal taking a leadership role at Digital Reasoning to thoughtfully apply our combined technology assets to solve valuable problems for our customers and partners.”
