Amsterdam-based Royal Philips Electronics announced that it will buy Wheb Sistemas, a clinical information systems provider based in Blumenau, Brazil. Financial terms were not disclosed.
In March, Philips acquired Tecso Informatica, a Brazilian radiology information systems company, according to a news release from Philips. Last month, Philips also agreed to acquire CDP Medical, a picture archiving and communication systems provider based in Israel.
In the news release, Philips Healthcare CEO Steve Rusckowski said the deal “is another important step on our journey to complete our global portfolio of clinical informatics and patient-care solutions.”
Founded in 1999, Wheb Sistemas has about 190 employees, and its systems are in 230 hospitals. Other Brazilian companies acquired by Philips are Dixtal Biomédica e Tecnologia, a manufacturer of in-hospital patient monitoring, anesthesia, and ventilation equipment, acquired in May 2008; and VMI-Sistemas Medicos, a diagnostic imaging company, which it bought in 2007.
