Mediware to buy some CareCentric assets
Mediware said it will gain more than 300 new customers as a result of the purchase, which is expected to close within 30 days, according to a news release. Mediware also said it plans to integrate the new assets into its Alternate Care Solutions line, a business unit formed in March 2010 after the acquisition of several companies, including Healthcare Automation and Advantage Reimbursement.
“The acquisition of CareCentric products, services and expertise will expand Mediware’s already substantial position in the Alternate Care Solutions market,” said Thomas Mann, Mediware's president and CEO, in the release. “With the additional customers, Mediware software will now support more than 700 sites delivering home-infusion, home medical equipment (HME), specialty pharmacy and home-care services for patients with chronic illnesses throughout the United States.”
