Culver City, Calif. - May 09, 2019 - NantHealth, Inc. (NASDAQ-GS: NH), a next-generation, evidence-based, personalized healthcare company, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2019.

“We had an excellent start to fiscal 2019,” said Bob Petrou, Chief Financial Officer of NantHealth. “Our solid 2019 first quarter results were driven by higher total revenue combined with an improved gross margin. Our SaaS business, which comprises the largest portion of our operations, continued its sequential quarterly topline growth, and with the recent signing of a multi-year contract for our Eviti clinical decision support solution, we expect to continue to see further revenue growth.”

In Q2, signed a three-year partnership with a leading nonprofit multi-state health plan, expanding Eviti Connect’s total covered lives to over 25 million
In Q1, released versions 7.6 and 7.7, with the following enhancements:
Added features that alert payers when a patient begins treatment before eligibility is determined
Clinical content teams can now publish regimens more efficiently and effectively to meet client needs
Payer medical management groups can now customize warnings and deviations for their clinically equivalent programs
Payers are now provided with superior insights into member eligibility and treatment timeframes

Payer Engagement (NaviNet):
In Q1, implemented refreshed pricing for NaviNet AllPayer services, which is expected to drive enhanced SaaS financial performance in 2019
In Q1, enhanced new workflow capabilities within the Authorizations applications to support functionality in submission workflow, and updated the Authorization Appeals application to better support users
In Q1, upgraded the Claim Status Inquiry tool to allow for better visibility of actions taken within NaviNet for non-NaviNet Claims, increasing utility of the NaviNet solution beyond current payer partners
In Q1, provided health plans/payers greater efficiency by allowing enhanced customization to Open Claim attachment metadata, improving automated file retrieval and processing on their backend

Connected Care (DeviceConX):

Net loss was $19.9 million, or $0.18 per share, compared with $22.2 million, or $0.20 per share, for 2018 first quarter.

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.
