Founded in 2004, the IN Group helps hospitals using MEDITECH optimize clinical and technical workflows in order to enhance patient safety, increase provider efficiency, and meet regulatory requirements. The acquisition strengthens DrFirst’s expansion of e-medication management services that help provider organizations promote patient safety and improve the quality of patient care.
Through the acquisition, The IN Group becomes a division of DrFirst, led by DrFirst’s Brad Block as president, and The IN Group founder Bruce Matthias has been appointed senior vice president. Financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed.
“By acquiring The IN Group,” said Block, “DrFirst can immediately provide a more comprehensive suite of end-to-end e-medication management best practices, supported by specialized clinical and HIS-specific subject matter expertise. In other words, we’re going to make sure our customers can make the most of their healthcare technology investments, with the goal of strengthening provider and patient satisfaction and, importantly, patient safety and healthcare outcomes.”
The acquisition of The IN Group is DrFirst’s second in 2016, following a year of very strong revenue growth as well as successful fund raising in 2015, including $25 million in equity financing from Goldman Sachs. For more information.
