CompuGroup Medical AG - acquisition of HealthPort's Solution Services Division in USA

(PresseBox) (Koblenz, ) CompuGroup Medical AG has yesterday entered into an agreement for the purchase of HealthPort's Solution Services Division assets. The Solution Services Division includes practice management software, electronic health records and revenue cycle management software for approximately 3,600 physicians.

HealthPort's Solution Services Division includes a strong product and service offering serving physician practices, community health centers and hospitals. The product portfolio, made up of both acquired and developed solutions, is a strong strategic fit for CompuGroup Medical's USA business because of the additional customer base for considerable revenue growth from cross-selling current products and sales of new products. There is also a strong fit with the customer management, marketing and innovation strategies of the fast growing CompuGroup Medical USA business.

The adoption rate of electronic healthcare records is expected to accelerate in the US market because of federal government incentives in the amount of approximately 20 billion US dollars offered for achieving meaningful-use capabilities to improve overall patient quality outcomes. With the acquisition of HealthPort's Solution Services Division, CompuGroup Medical AG follows its strategy of a continues growth consistently of its, at this stage greatest coverage among healthcare providers worldwide (physicians, dentists, hospitals etc.).

Frank Gotthardt, Chairman of the Board of CompuGroup Medical AG, stated: "The US is a core market for CompuGroup Medical. With the network of healthcare providers now served through Noteworthy, Visionary and HealthPort's Solution Services Division we continue to move up the ranks of healthcare IT companies in USA.
