Quality Systems, Inc. , a leading provider of healthcare information systems and connectivity solutions, today announced that QSI has entered into an agreement to acquire Opus Healthcare Solutions, Inc. The acquisition complements and will be integrated with the assets of Sphere Health Systems, Inc., which were acquired in August 2009. Both companies are established developers of software and services for the inpatient market and will become part of NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, Inc., QSI’s wholly owned subsidiary. The transactions are expected to be accretive in QSI’s fiscal year 2011, ending March 31, 2011.
NextGen Healthcare will focus on providing solutions to hospitals with 100 beds or less, a marketplace that has been historically underserved and is in desperate need of state-of-the-art systems.
“Combining the assets of Opus and Sphere will allow NextGen Healthcare to provide an integrated clinical and financial solution that is unmatched in terms of functionality. These acquisitions are a natural extension of our ‘single platform’ model and demonstrate how well we are positioned to meet the needs of the community healthcare market. This will clearly further strengthen NextGen Healthcare’s market leadership role,” noted Philip N. Kaplan, chief operating officer at QSI. [Read more…]
