09th April 2021 – Written by Alex Green – Featured on HISTalk – Signify Research examines the just-completed acquisition of DXC’s provider business by Dedalus for $450 million. It notes:

  • DXC was created in 2017 by the merger of CSC (which had previously acquired ISoft following its NPfIT struggles) and the enterprise services business of HPE.
  • Dedalus had previously acquired a majority position in France-based Medasys and the EHR and integrated care business of Agfa Health.
  • The combined entity is the largest EHR vendor in Europe, with annual revenue of $600 million. It offers legacy EHRs such as Lorenzo, I.CM, I.P.M., MedChart, Swift, Patient Care, and others.
  • The analysis says that Dedalus needs to retire its legacy solutions quickly and move customers to newer platforms without upsetting them, which it notes is not easy.
