SAIC has announced that it will acquire maxIT Healthcare in a $473 million all-cash transaction. SAIC says it will combine maxIT, which is the largest private, independent healthcare IT consulting company in the US, with its previous healthcare IT acquisition Vitalize Consulting Solutions to create the country’s largest EHR consulting practice.
SAIC had previously announced its interest in expanding its EHR implementation and integration services to offset declining federal government revenue.
maxIT Healthcare’s 1,300 employees will join SAIC’s Health Solutions Business Unit. The acquisition is expected to close in August.
