Harris Corporation has finalized its $155 million acquisition of privately held Carefx Corporation, which provides interoperability workflow solutions for government and commercial healthcare providers, according to a press release.
Used in more than 800 hospitals, healthcare systems and health information exchanges across the nation, the Carefx Fusionfx platform incorporates the latest standards-based technologies and industry best practices to streamline retrieval, access and use of patient information, Harris said.
“The Fusionfx solution is the industry standard in providing interoperability between disparate hospital systems, giving clinicians the information they need when they need it,” said Jim Traficant, vice president and general manager, Harris Healthcare Solutions. “This acquisition marks an unprecedented opportunity to establish Harris and Carefx as the global leader of interoperability solutions.”
Carefx Chairman and CEO Andrew Hurd will continue to lead the business, which will become part of the company’s Healthcare Solutions business.
