HealthcareSource Acquires Lean Human Capital
Industry leading talent management technology and advisory services companies join forces to provide more comprehensive solution to the healthcare market
Woburn, MA – May 23, 2016 – HealthcareSource ®, the leading provider of talent management solutions for healthcare, announced it has acquired Lean Human Capital. Lean Human Capital became a partner of HealthcareSource in March 2015, resulting in numerous successful engagements and a growing list of shared clients. With this acquisition, Lean Human Capital advisory services and the company’s renowned Recruiter Academy will be more directly integrated into HealthcareSource product and services solutions, providing the foundation for a new portfolio of consultative services and educational offerings.
With this acquisition, HealthcareSource has strengthened its existing market leadership in the healthcare space. The combined company now has over 3,000 healthcare clients, including more than 50% of the hospitals in the US. Through its Quality Talent SuiteSM, HealthcareSource processes, on an annual basis, 10 million job applications, 380,000 performance reviews, and nearly 41 million course completions.
Lean Human Capital brings a similar depth of expertise. Since 1997, Lean Human Capital has advised 850 healthcare organizations and educated more than 10,000 recruiters and talent management professionals worldwide. The combination of Lean Human Capital and HealthcareSource brings an unprecedented level of automation, experience, analytics, benchmarks, and best practices together into one shared solution, which will provide unique insights and value to clients and the market overall.

The company will be run as a business unit within HealthcareSource and will continue to provide services to organizations nationwide, including organizations who have an industry focus outside of the core healthcare market.
