With Second Acquisition in Past 30 Days, Company Furthers Position as Leading Mobile Intelligence Solutions Provider for the Digital Hospital of Tomorrow
HATBORO, Pa., May 10 / -- InfoLogix, Inc., a leading provider of mobile intelligence solutions to over 1,100 hospitals in North America, announced today it has acquired the healthcare mobility services and RFID business of AMTSystems, Inc., including the technology solutions that are currently used in more than 400 hospitals internationally.
The business acquired includes existing relationships with customers, vendors and partners, and the intellectual property rights behind AMT's clinical and financial mobility solutions for healthcare. The acquisition strengthens InfoLogix's position in the hospital RFID marketplace, which is predicted to reach $8.8 billion by 2010 according to industry analysts. AMTSystems is based in Cheshire, Connecticut. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"InfoLogix is committed to providing mobile applications that improve patient safety while enabling the Digital Hospital of tomorrow for healthcare providers," says David Gulian, president and CEO of InfoLogix, Inc. "This acquisition continues to advance our position as the 'single source' provider for mobile intelligence solutions in both the healthcare and enterprise markets, and we expect it to be accretive to our 2007 earnings."
Last week the World Health Organization identified nine key areas in which healthcare errors that harm millions of people worldwide can be prevented. With this acquisition, InfoLogix now has solutions that directly address the top four areas, including medication errors and "wrong site / wrong procedure" surgeries.
"With 15 years of continued research and development, we've grown our healthcare mobility and RFID solutions into a multi-million dollar business," says Todd Stewart, Vice President of Business Development at AMTSystems. "InfoLogix's market penetration and breadth of services will enable these cutting-edge solutions to reach a wider market, starting with their existing base of 1,100 healthcare customers." Stewart will be joining InfoLogix as Director of Healthcare Technology Sales.
The acquisition also includes an FDA approved technology which uses RFID to prevent "wrong site / wrong procedure" surgeries; a patent-pending, paperless RFID-based chain of custody drug testing system; and a medication management solution for long term care and assisted living facilities.
