EHR company e-MDs gets acquired
March 31, 2015 in Medical Technology
The acquisition news comes after e-MDs Founder and CEO David Winn announced he will be retiring.
“As a much larger company, we will have the depth and breadth to continue offering market-leading ambulatory technology and the expertise to tackle the increasingly complex government regulations that have been such a challenge to the healthcare industry,” said Winn in a March 31 statement announcing the deal.
Jim Brady, Marlin operating partner whose investment focus is on the healthcare sector, will assume the role of interim CEO of the merged businesses. The move, Brady said, “further enhances the company’s ability to meet the needs of physicians and other clinicians who are facing continuing challenges and uncertainty within healthcare today.”
