Siemens Healthcare announced this morning that it will acquire HIE solutions vendor MobileMD of Yardley, PA.

John Glaser PhD, CEO of the Health Services Business Unit of Siemens Healthcare, was quoted as saying:

The goals behind many of our country’s broad, health reform initiatives are intended to improve the quality of care by doing two basic things: increase utilization of electronic technology, for a variety of benefits, and improve the coordination of care among entities that had previously not shared data well. Patients come into the healthcare system expecting physicians to help them get well by coordinating their care. Patients generally should not need to be concerned with the logistics of how their care is coordinated – they should rightfully expect that it will be coordinated. Siemens was impressed with MobileMD’s capabilities to enable this level of data sharing while maintaining an impressive focus on customer satisfaction. MobileMD customers can expect to continue to experience this same level, or an improved level, of service, commitment and partnership.

MobileMD’s HIE service is used by 110 hospitals and 2,000 physician practices, according to the announcement.

HIStalk interviewed MobileMD CEO Todd Fisher this past January. He named Axolotl and Medicity as MobileMD’s main competitors, both of which had been recently acquired at that time.

Terms of the acquisition, which is expected to close promptly, were not disclosed.
