Allscripts announced this afternoon that it will acquire McKesson’s Enterprise Information Solutions health IT business for $185 million in cash.

The products acquired include the Paragon EHR, Star, Series, Healthquest, Lab Analytics and Blood Bank, and OneContent.

Allscripts CEO Paul Black said in a statement, “Adding these assets to Allscripts existing portfolio enables us to better serve our clients, increase our scale and further drive our investment in innovation. This transaction is expected to directly benefit our existing clients and our shareholders, as well as the Enterprise Information Solutions clients and team members we’ll welcome to our family. Allscripts is a critical strategic partner to thousands of healthcare organizations and our highest priority is to successfully meet their highly complex needs of today and in the future, as we enable them to lead the change to smarter care. The healthcare IT market remains highly fragmented. Today’s announcement is a proactive and strategic measure to maintain Allscripts long-term leadership and position Allscripts for continued growth.”

Allscripts says it will continue to offer Paragon to small hospitals while continuing to sell Allscripts Sunrise to larger health systems.
