WALNUT CREEK, CA--(Marketwired - October 07, 2016) - Paradigm Outcomes, the nation's leading provider of complex medical management services, has acquired Encore Unlimited, LLC.
Encore's case management and advocacy services and Paradigm's expertise in managing catastrophic injuries and complex pain injuries form a comprehensive resource for case management solutions.

"With this acquisition, we instantly expand Paradigm's customer base and add flexibility to respond strategically to regions with growing case volume," said Jim Hudak, Paradigm's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

I am excited about this new chapter as we continue improving the lives of people with medical needs across the country."
Liz Thompson, BS, CDMS, CRC, CEO of Encore, will report to Tom Mastri, Paradigm's Chief Financial Officer and Chief Administrative Officer.
