Wolters Kluwer Health announced this morning that it will acquire medical terminology content and mapping vendor Health Language, Inc.

Arvind Subramanian, president and CEO of Wollters Kluwer Health Clinical Solutions, was quoted in the announcement as saying, “Medical terminology management is quickly emerging as a core point-of-care market as hospitals, EMRs, and payers are increasingly focused on interoperability of systems to realize the advantages of healthcare information technology. Health Language has built a leadership position in meeting this important interoperability need. This acquisition allows Wolters Kluwer Health to enhance its current market leading point-of-care solutions and better position its customers to fully leverage existing and emerging healthcare quality and reimbursement initiatives. The acquisition also provides Wolters Kluwer Health with greater access to payers, key customers for various Health Language offerings.”

The Denver-based Health Language has 85 employees. Terms were not disclosed.

  1. I was contacted by several current and former Pulse employees and Cegedim has removed the Hourani’s from the CEO and CTO positions. Jeff Burton is now the new CEO and they will be announcing this after MGMA. In the last six months, Pulse has eliminated two-thirds of their sales team and no changed leadership. Are the doors closing?
