UnitedHealth, Americas largest insurer and with a rapidly growing healthcare services arm,  too, plans to join with Vista Equity Partners to buy and split up the Advisory Board, a leading health and education consulting firm, reports Bloomberg News.

The scenario calls for Vista to acquire the Advisory Board’s education division for as much as $1.5 billion while UnitedHealth would buy its healthcare business for an undisclosed amount.

The Advisory Board ‘s   consulting services range from general strategy to electronic health record optimization,  tech solutions, including mobile rounding technology, population-health analytics and revenue optimization.

That portfolio could fit in well with the  services of UnitedHealth’s Optum unit, which includes data and analytics, healthcare operations and delivery, pharmacy care services and population-health management.
