NantHealth acquires Harris Healthcare Solutions
Friday, July 17, 2015
NantHealth, a subsidiary of NantWorks, has completed the acquisition of Harris Corp’s commercial Healthcare Solutions business, a clinical systems integration innovator. Harris retained its government healthcare services business.
NantHealth’s existing cOS, eviti and omics platforms, combined with Harris’ FusionFX suite of products, brings molecular medicine insights directly to the point-of-care. The acquisition follows closely on the heels of NantHealth’s strategic alliance with Allscripts and their dbMotion semantics engine. Financial terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.
“The acquisition of Harris Healthcare Solutions, our largest transaction to date, brings unique and proven technology with a large global footprint that significantly furthers our stated goal to improve patient outcomes by efficiently providing physicians with integrated, clinically relevant patient-centric information in real-time,” said Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, executive chairman and founder of NantHealth.
The FusionFX platform builds and markets disruptive technology that provides next-generation health information exchange, interoperability and insights to healthcare organizations around the world. The solutions enable healthcare organizations to integrate disparate data sources and leverage existing IT investments to create cross-organizational, cross-system, cross-continuum of care processes and workflows. Its scalable platform eliminates redundancies and administrative legwork and improves quality of care by streamlining access to the right information at the right time.
HCS is a partner to more than 75 clients and 100,000 clinicians worldwide. HCS collaborates with many of the industry’s most innovative health systems including Advocate Health Care, Kaiser Permanente, Allina Health, Presence Health, Cleveland Clinic, University Health Network, National Health System (NHS), with key international channel partnerships with British Telecom (UK) and TELUS (Canada). Harris’ application suite is driving some of the world’s largest clinically integrated networks such as to the coordination of care across the province of Ontario, Canada. Included in this suite is FusionOS, a Service Oriented Architecture (SoA) interoperability platform originally developed to rapidly integrate clinical applications across the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the U.S. Department of Defense.
