Royal Philips has acquired Forcare. Forcare and its team will provide highly complementary capabilities for Philips, and will enable Philips to deliver more effective, seamlessly integrated informatics solutions that improve clinical workflow, enhance patient care and optimize enterprise management. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
As hospital and health systems continue to consolidate, the need for seamless enterprise integration is paramount for delivering efficient, quality care. The combination of Philips’ advanced clinical informatics solutions for data (e.g. IntelliSpace Universal Data Manager), workflow (e.g. IntelliSpace PACS), visualization (e.g. Illumeo) and interoperability (e.g. IntelliBridge Enterprise), and Forcare’s complementary interoperability platform will enable Philips to strengthen its leadership in connecting patient information across the health continuum. – Medical Buyer Bureau
