Culver City, Calif. – August 6, 2020 — NantHealth, Inc. (NASDAQ-GS: NH), a next-generation, evidence-based, personalized healthcare company, today reported financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

“In July, we completed the strategic acquisition of the OpenNMS Group, Inc., a company with the world’s premier open source network management software platform,” said Ron Louks, Chief Operating Officer, NantHealth. “This is an exciting transaction for NantHealth because it expands and diversifies our software portfolio and service offerings, enhances our AI, Cloud and SaaS capabilities, and opens market opportunities beyond healthcare.

“In response to the COVID-19 crisis, we supported the healthcare community by launching the NantHealth Cares initiative. As part of this initiative, we made our NaviNet AllPayer platform available to providers for free during the month of May. We believe it is important to do our part during the pandemic to help reduce the financial and capacity strain on hard-hit providers, even if it temporarily impacted our revenue.

“In addition, NantHealth CEO, Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, presented a video series exploring the science behind COVID-19. The educational series was made accessible on the NantHealth.com website and our NaviNet and Eviti platforms, which garnered more than 10,000 views – over 1,300 hours watched. In addition, NantHealth medical experts hosted two webinars designed to educate our payers, providers and partners on COVID-19. Both webinars generated considerable interest with over 900 registrants each.”

Software and Services Highlights:

  • Clinical Decision Support (Eviti®):
    • Implemented, through a channel partnership, Eviti Advisor clinical decision support platform with a leading non-profit medical center in New York City
    • In July, significantly expanded Eviti Connect across the Medicaid population of a leading U.S. health insurance company with the addition of two states
    • Leveraged the Eviti platform to educate users on the implications of COVID-19 for cancer care and the science behind emerging treatments through videos and instruction. Also, added a feature enabling payers to gain insights to COVID-19 testing relative to oncology treatment plans
    • Released enhancements to the Eviti platform, including:
      • Return-on-Investment (ROI) reporting: implemented cost savings dashboard enabling more robust and expedited validation of ROI for our customers
      • White blood cell growth factor deviation messaging: added messaging to communicate unexpected use of white blood cell growth factor when a treatment plan is entered, allowing users to make real-time corrections for faster review and approval
  • Payer Engagement (NaviNet®):
    • Leveraged the NaviNet platform to enable payers to post updates to their medical policies and other key information – assisting the provider community directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic
    • Launched workflow enhancements that enable providers to update prior authorizations already on file with our payer customers. Payers that enable this option as part of their NaviNet Open services can expect to receive more prior authorization requests electronically, while streamlining the process of managing prior authorizations for their providers

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release contains references to Non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share, which are financial measures that are not prepared in conformity with United States generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP). The Company’s management believes that the presentation of Non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplementary information regarding operational performance, because it enhances an investor’s overall understanding of the financial results for the Company’s core business. Additionally, it provides a basis for the comparison of the financial results for the Company’s core business between current, past and future periods. Other companies may define these measures in different ways. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered only as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for or as a superior measure to, financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Non-GAAP per share numbers are calculated based on one class of common stock and do not incorporate the effects, if any, of using the two-class method.
