LINCOLNSHIRE -- Alight Solutions, a cloud-based provider of human resources and business solutions, Thursday said it has signed an agreement to acquire ConsumerMedical, a clinical advocacy and expert medical opinion company.

Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

ConsumerMedical will enhance Alight's ability to help employers around the world build a healthier workforce through its data-driven, personalized solutions, the company said.

"Alight's robust health care solutions help employees navigate the confusing and complex health care system to improve outcomes, lower costs and maximize their health care benefits," said Stephan Scholl, CEO of Alight.
