McKesson Acquiring MED3000

McKesson Corp.San Francisco-based McKesson Corp. has announced plans to acquire MED3000, a developer of physician group management, billing, and revenue cycle tools based in Pittsburgh.  This comes a week after McKesson announced that it had entered into an agreement to purchase MedVentive, a data analytics firm and provider of population and risk management tools for the healthcare industry.

With its own Electronic Health Records system and a customer base including over 10,000 physicians, MED3000 will help to complement McKesson’s current medical billing and practice management system offerings.  Once both acquisitions pass regulatory clearances, MED3000’s analytics services as well as Waltham, MA-based MedVentive’s SaaS and other solutions will augment McKesson’s capabilities and experience to support customers’ use of information technology to improve care, connectivity, and business.

Microwize Technology carries, implements, and offers training and support for McKesson products such as Medisoft, Lytec, and McKesson Practice Choice.  Contact a healthcare technology consultant for more info.
