OMAHA—On Monday HealthInterlink, a medical software company focused on remote patient monitoring, was acquired by Welch Allyn, Inc., a leading medical diagnostic device company headquartered in Skaneateles Falls, NY.
HealthInterlink’s software incorporates wireless patient monitoring devices with mobile devices to transmit medical data like vital signs and answers to patient care plan questions across a HIPAA-compliant cloud-based web portal, making it easier for healthcare professionals to manage individual patient data.
“The acquisition of HealthInterlink’s assets is exciting news for Welch Allyn and is in keeping with our vision to help transform care wherever patients and healthcare professionals connect,” said Welch Allyn President and CEO Stephen Meyer in a press release. “As healthcare delivery becomes decentralized and extends beyond the traditional acute and ambulatory care locations where our offerings are used today, we intend to provide solutions that enable providers to deliver high quality care, regardless of location.”
According to a press release, HealthInterlink’s product will continue to be developed, sourced and sold by its existing clients, and operations will be “business as usual” for all HealthInterlink’s clients and partners during the transition. Specific terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
