LOS ANGELES, April 1, 2016 – Marlin Equity Partners (“Marlin”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired a portfolio of software assets from the Business Performance Services division of McKesson Corporation (NYSE: MCK). The assets include McKesson Practice Choice™, Medisoft®, Medisoft® Clinical, Lytec®, Lytec® MD and Practice Partner® (“McKesson Assets”), and consist of practice management and electronic health record software solutions sold to the ambulatory care market. The practice management products (Medisoft®, Lytec® and McKesson Practice Choice™) deliver streamlined scheduling and billing functionality, while the electronic health record software (Medisoft® Clinical, Lytec® MD, Practice Partner® and McKesson Practice Choice™) enhance care quality while improving efficiency within a physician practice. The McKesson Assets have been merged with e-MDs, Inc. (“e-MDs”), a Marlin portfolio company, adding new ambulatory software capabilities to e-MDs’ existing portfolio of technology services and software solutions.
“The McKesson team supporting these products shares our same passion – helping doctors maintain their focus on the patient,” stated Derek Pickell, CEO of e-MDs. “All of us at e-MDs look forward to aligning with their team to bring e-MDs’ full suite of solutions to thousands of new providers across the country.”
“This acquisition is key to both our growth and diversification strategies,” stated George Kase, partner at Marlin. “The purchase is in line with our vision to complement organic growth with select strategic acquisitions. The combination more than quadruples e-MDs’ physician client base within the small physician market and also accelerates the opportunity to scale and extend the e-MDs brand into new areas not previously available.”
