TeleTracking Technologies, Pittsburgh, plans to buy Hill-Roms NaviCare Patient Flow Solutions as part of a 10-year development agreement.
The deal is expected to close in 45 days. At that time, TeleTracking would be able to sell Hill-Roms NaviCare Nurse Call system, and Hill-Rom would be able to sell TeleTrackings capacity management suite. The companies also would work together to integrate TeleTrackings patient-flow technology, including its real-time electronic bed board, with NaviCares bedside nurse communication technology.
Between 30 and 40 support and development employees of Hill-Rom would work for TeleTracking after the acquisition. Financial terms were not disclosed. Hill-Rom, Batesville, Ind., is publicly traded, and TeleTracking is privately held.
