A leading IT solutions provider for the global healthcare sector has acquired a supply chain management specialist, significantly boosting its supply chain capabilities through mobile application solutions.

Medsphere Systems Corporation announced in a statement this week that it has acquired Healthline Solutions, provider of robust and adaptable applications that combined bar coding and RFID technology in the healthcare supply chain.

The acquisition falls in line with Medsphere’s current expansion plans, as it looks to offer platforms that satisfy the clinical, revenue cycle and inventory management needs of all inpatient acute and behavioural health facilities.
