HealthTech Holdings, Inc., the parent company of community HIS vendor Healthcare Management Systems (HMS) based in Nashville, TN, announced this morning that it has acquired emergency department information system vendor MEDHOST of Addison, TX. HMS plans to develop an integrated EDIS for its hospital systems customers.

“This is a win-win transaction,” said Tom Stephenson, CEO of HMS. “We will work together to gain the benefits of collaboration and capitalize on each other’s strengths, bringing to market a truly customized and integrated product for our target market. HMS customers will benefit from the proven gains in productivity and safety brought on by automating emergency department visits. Moreover, MEDHOST’s automatic Charge Capture prevents lost charges and provides enhanced financial performance by calculating charges as care is documented. The system’s real-time notifications help keep ED clinicians and staff better informed about each patient’s status thereby improving quality of care.”
