Agfa-Gevaert Group, parent company of Agfa HealthCare, announced on 2 December that it had entered exclusive negotiations with Dedalus Holding to sell part of its healthcare IT business — specifically the business tied to its electronic medical record (EMR) and integrated care offerings. Now’s a good time to look at the implications.

The facts are listed below:

  • In May 2019, Agfa stated it would explore selling its hospital IT and integrated care (HCIS) solutions business.
  • This process was brought a step forward toward conclusion on Monday with the announcement that the deal, valued at 945 million euros, would be completed during the second quarter 2020 and that negotiations would be on an exclusive basis with Dedalus.
